Writer's Block: Star Trek

If you could visit anywhere in the solar system, where would it be?
Off the top of my head, these three first came to mind:

1: Vesta, if only to see if it really does have the tallest mountain in the Solar System.

2: Mimas, if only to make sure that it definitely isn't what it looks like.

3: Eris, if only to satisfy the desire to congregate at boundary conditions.

In addition to those, however, are a few non-member states like Taiwan or Kosovo, which are widely considered to be de facto countries, even without UN membership.

Taking the most widely-accepted of those into account, the number, I think, is 196.

And yes, I did know all that off the top of my head.
