There was a guy in my A.F. police school from Hawaii.  Sometimes he would come up with colorful sayings like Kiss my Mahu.. and even though we had no idea what he said we figured it out later.

I got to see Hawaii on my way to S.E.A. when we landed for refueling.  Everyone had to get off but stay near the aircraft.  I got to see my first palm tree, lit up by a light pole and a building.  Aboiut 20 minutes it was back on board and off to our next stop, the  Phillipines for crew rest before our final destination.

They could be too busy making remakes or sequels of old movies.  It takes a lot of brain power to do that.

 

But... This is the USA!  There's ALWAYS time for lawsuits!  Money grab, laziness, and lawsuits, what 'Murica is all about these days.

OK switching the cynical-tron off now.

The Starblazers theme!  Yes.

I also wonder if we need another DoD branch.  Unless we are ready to go off to outer space.  We're leaving Mother Earth.  To save the human race.  Our US Space Force.

I think it needs work.

And why hasn't Paramount beamed in yet with a C&D, for co-opting the Starfleet logo?

After 3 years in AF, I returned to school and then worked technology development for aerospace industry.  Worked many AF space projects.  I think the Space Force is decades ahead of its need.  For any space missions I see in the future, the AF could handle them.  I think the SF is a lot of useless additional bureacracy and expense.

 

 

Some folks thought along the same lines regarding the new USAF long ago. The US Navy and US Army both have various Missile programs that overlapped into the space realms as well. Only time will tell if USSF was too soon.

And for the most part they have done it well.  With shows like Star Blazers, Macross, Dougram, Gundam, Votoms, and Crusher Joe, not to mention Godzilla and Rodan, they do seem to have a nack for that.

To be honest, I kind of prefer the theme to the old "Star Blazers" better Stick out tongue

Augh! You beat me to it!  Big Smile

Gotta love the music from Japanese cartoons.  It's like it has been their only outlet for martial spirit since the end of WW II.

Amen to that.  Air Force Space Command already handled that mission, and the facilities were already shared with the other, existing branches.

Here's a vesion I like:

Space Battleship Yamato - alternate opening with original theme - YouTube

Then there's this song:

Original Macross Opening Song - English Sub - YouTube

Then there's an old Air Force song:

1957 New Song Salutes Air Force Blue - YouTube

But it could be worse, Space Force sould have chosen the Up in the Air Junior Birdman song.  You'll have to look that one up, it goes back to the 1930s.

Hi,

I see that the US Space Force has released its official song.

https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/20/politics/space-force-song

For better or worse, it seems alot like other songs for the other branches of the Dept of Defense with a fair amount of awkward rhymes and words contorted to fit the melody.

We're the mighty watchful eye,
Guardians beyond the blue,
The invisible front line,
Warfighters brave and true.
Boldly reaching into space,
There's no limit to our sky.
Standing guard both night and day,
We're the Space Force from on high.

Anyway, it got me wondering whether there has ever been a Space Force group build done.  It seems like it could be fun, where builds could range anywhere from astronaut/cosmonaut figures repainted in a more military style camouflage, real world or whatif missiles and space planes, through to possible near term (maybe +50yrs or so) future equipment.
