Currently scouting in the orbital layer is a slow motion nightmare. Satellites would be op if made faster and cheaper to run, which the only way they could be used as scouts. Highly recommend these changes: Drone Missile Pod - A missile unit build able from orbital factory/orbital launcher, it can travel through the orbital layer about as fast as the current avenger, (including between planets) has a nifty deployment option to "unload" a handful of drones/scouts into the atmosphere, which you can then use to scout out the planet, this causes the drone to disintegrate. No anti-orbital capabilities. Avengers - Increase speed, quite simple really.
