Project status: RELEASED.
The Queen has decided that she wants to expand the British Empire once again. However, the conventional methods of going about such a task (sailing up the Mediterranean, blowing up a few boats and subduing the indigenous population that survive, for example) are now somewhat frowned upon. Thus, Her Majesty has instead… turned to the stars! The Special Planetary Investigative Force For Inhabiting New Galaxies will see Britain’s first manned expedition to space, captained by Frank Lee English.
