    ^ Yeah, apparently it made too much sense to simply rename the USAF to “United States Aerospace Force.” :rolleyes:

    Shit, why can’t we do what the Canadians did 50 years ago? The Canadian Forces HAVE no separate branches. It’s a single, unified military command. Simple, logical, and most importantly, efficient.

    Oh hell, I think I just answered my own question. :sigh:

    It's called the military-industrial complex for a reason. Efficiency would reduce profit and render the dependencies more transparent.

    Ike warned us and too many didn't listen because "he's a senile old fool":

    Neil deGrasse Tyson thinks Space Force might be sorta cool, depending on the jackets.

    Those Logos are..stupid, they have no basis in Military history or tradition..
    Now the following link shows logos that would be much better on a plaque or a spacecraft instead of a hat..

    Just substitute United States Space Force instead of Strategic Space Command

    And Our President will be happy to design the uniforms..

    No and no. Trump's Space Force is nothing more than a market scheme to get his voters to buy those Saturday morning Japanese puppet string cartoon stickers.

    Let's just replace NASA's emblem with a Space Force emblem.

    Can Trump be any more gay?

    I actually submitted a request to NASA to change its name to Starfleet. They still laugh about it to this day.

    Nope and my guess is we never will. It's like some crazy scheme off The Apprentice.
    Who knows? Maybe the US can take over the old Nazi base.
    You're not wrong. There's money in merchandising.
    Probably not even if he tried, which seems unlikely.
    Seems reasonable enough. They might find it amusing but be sympathetic. There's likely a lot of Star Trek fans in NASA. Remember the rollout of the shuttle test vehicle named Enterprise. I'm also not sure even the director of NASA can change its name. It might require Congressional approval. It would also be very expensive to change the branding.
