Different atmospheres (i.e. simply different sky colors in STO - so it's no big deal, forcing you to wear an EV suit) and different gravities would definitely be pivotal for any revamp of the exploration system...

But AGAIN: For now, the most effective short-term measure or Cryptic is to have a second look at those planets which certainly have totally unfitting textures (see list above)
