Earth Starfleet was created to oversee and develop all military and exploration aspects the United Earth's growing space force. Working with civilian authorities Starfleet Command worked on the ground breaking NX Project founded by the legendary Dr Zefram Cochrane and a team of engineers and scientists with him, notably Henry Archer who will be give credit for the success of the project. Earth Starfleet Command was part of several historic actions in its brief 48 year existence.

The UESPA or United Earth Space Probe Agency was and is in charge of exploration for first the United Earth and to this day the United Federation of Planets. There has at times been confusion where Starfleet and UESPA begin and end. For Starfleet the UESPA is a civilian agency much like the National Air and Space Administration or NASA, was for the old United States. Starfleet has authority overall military vessels (starships) under the Federation and the UESPA has oversight of the exploration vessels (spaceships). The UESPA would often send Starfleet missions of exploration for starships to undertake, much like the historic 5 year missions of James Kirk and the Enterprise. Today the UESPA still exists and oversees the exploration arm of the Federation and works hand in hand with Starfleet to meet the goals of both.
