While Jon's quote is applicable, I do not think you can extend the
current UN as it is into the future. If you recall the timeline, the
current UN fails. A new one is created later to keep peace in the
Core and Inner Worlds, leaving the Solar Wars to take place in the
Outer (colony) Worlds.

Who said the UN has no starships??
>3) Why does the UN have a weapons program at all?
See earlier mention about 'keeping the peace' ;-)
