This white paper describes a small flagship-class mission concept focused on studying Titan as a global system, with particular emphasis on the polar regions. The mission would accomplish comprehensive global mapping with an orbiter, and one or more small probes to directly investigate Titan's seas, making direct measurements of their composition.
