President Donald Trump unveiled the new US Space Force logo on Friday — which seems to boldly go where one logo has gone before.
Trump posted an image on Twitter of the insignia for the newest branch of the US military, drawing immediate comparisons of the new logo to the “Star Trek” Starfleet Starship duty insignia.
A Space Force spokesperson said in a statement that the seal unveiled by Trump is, in fact, the new official logo. The similarities between the Space Force logo and the “Star Trek” logo were immediately apparent to many Twitter users.
After consultation with our Great Military Leaders, designers, and others, I am pleased to present the new logo for the United States Space Force, the Sixth Branch of our Magnificent Military! pic.twitter.com/TC8pT4yHFT

Trump’s administration is kind of like an episode of Star Trek where every person is wearing a red shirt.
