The Unity Program emblem.

The Unity Program was a NASA program started in February of 2059. Not long after the invention of the Warp Drive, its goal was to explore Zeta Leporis, a galaxy near the edge of the Observable Universe (as it appears from Earth). However, with the Warp Drive being a fairly slow method of FTL compared to future methods, the crew is estimated to arrive in 23250 years.

Ship leaving

The prototype Unity Shuttle fitted with a warp drive leaving Earth in April 2059.

The program was never publicized because it may have been seen as a waste of resources.
