Starship Operators, Mouretsu Pirates Recommendations
Both shows contain "what-if" scenarios about mundane aspects of the real world interacting with a science fiction setting. (with Starship Operators it's reality TV and with Mouretsu Pirates it's insurance fraud). While Starship Operators is more on the political, action-packed side, the director of Mouretsu Pirates also worked on Starship Operators, so it has a similar feel. Both shows also contain a predominantly female cast that isn't used for fanservice. There is also a good amount of tactical planning.
SO is "harder" in terms of science fiction mechanics, though.
