This is a request of an fictional spacecraft that I have came up with that would be used on Orbiter 2016, which is a fictional successor to Cassini-Huygens. The components of the spacecraft would consist of an Saturn Orbiter, an Enceladus lander, an Iapetus lander, the Titan Zeppelin, an Titan lander and an small Saturn atmospheric probe.

Speaking of Cassini Mk. 2, Piper's [ame="https://www.orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=3380"]Eris Explorer[/ame] would probably do. On its original mission, it carries three atmospheric probes for Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune before going to Eris. It would be fun repurposing them as atmospheric probes to Saturn and Titan instead for this mission :):):)

I have no idea if an Enceladus and Iapetus landers and the Titan Zeppelin would look on Orbiter.

Great idea. there was a thread here that was about Galileo II that might make a good DSP and launch on the SLS.
