That moon camo... :rofl:
...Up top, catch the new three-minute glimpse into the Netflix comedy, which was co-created by Carell and his Office collaborator Greg Daniels. I can't help but point out that the new trailer includes Carell letting loose the line "We're gonna Apollo 13 the shit out of this," as well as brief footage of a dog and a monkey enjoying their freedom from the constraints of gravity...
We salute whoever made Steve Carell head of Space Force at the Air Force museum
Steve Carell may only be the head of the U.S. Space Force in the upcoming Netflix series, but he's certainly making moves within the real-life U.S. military — sort of.
A photo that surfaced Tuesday on Reddit appears to show Carell's face plastered over the existing portrait of real-life Chief of Space Operations Gen. John Raymond in an installation on service leadership at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.
Based on the photo, it appears that someone used Scotch tape to install Carell's fictional Space Force chief, Gen. Mark R. Naird, in Raymond's place
"Gen. Mark R. Naird assumed the duties as the first Chief of Space Operations, United States Space Force, on Dec. 20, 2019," the new bio reads. "The U.S. Space Force is responsible for providing resilient, defendable and affordable space capabilities for the Nation and the Joint Force. It is the duty of the U.S. Space Force to protect the interests of the Unites States in space; deter aggression in, from, and to space; and conduct prompt and sustained space operations."
The original poster, himself an active-duty airman, told Task & Purpose that a friend who had travelled to the NMUSAF on official Air Force business had noticed Carell's face and shared the photo with him.
Unrelated, the installation also spells sergeant as 'sergent' for reasons that defy explanation.
"Having worked in (but not for) the museum for many years, I wouldn't be surprised if those employees don't notice that until the next change of command," the original poster told Task & Purpose.
Public affairs staff at the NMUSAF, which is currently closed due to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), did not respond to request for comment from Task & Purpose.
Space Force finally blasts off on Netflix on May 29.

garb811 said:Well...I've watched the first few episodes of this last night and as much as I want to love it, particularly given the stellar cast, I just can't say I like it. I can't even say that I find it humorous. The best jokes so far were in the trailer, the rest of the comedy is forced and cliche.
I'm going to bash through a few more in hopes that it will grow on me, eventually, but I don't have high hopes.

I like that the military folks are not portrayed as two dimensional cartoon characters. Even after displaying buffoonish behaviour for comedic effect, most of the characters seem to redeem themselves by the end of the episode.
Well, except for the Commander of the USAF....
I still chuckle that the fictional USSF has more "normal" uniforms than the real one.
Did the get a blind man to tailor those pants? Like all of them are wrong! LOL!I still chuckle that the fictional USSF has more "normal" uniforms than the real one.
