    It's a very good name to fantasize about while masturbating. It's a powerful name, one you can scream out when reaching orgasm, it will make you ejaculate at level #2:

    I mean, I guess we have a branch of the military called "Air Force" which would probably sound just as ridiculous if we were not accustomed to it.

    On one hand, I like it because it sounds futuristic. On the other, I’d rather the name be something more creative and/or over the top.

    Vacuum force haha. IMO, Space force sounds a little far-fetched until we know what kind of missions they will be doing next. For now, something like 'satelite & missile defense department' would have sufficed.

    I have in order of increasing 'over the topness':

    - Cislunar Force
    - Spacecrew
    - Interplanetary Army
    - Orbiting Militia
    - Sentinels of the Void
    - Cosmic Scouts
    - The Legion from Heaven
    - The Big Bang Gang
    I rarely feel alone. I rarely talk to anyone, yet in my head i have the most amazing, the most fantastic discussions with the people in my life. In real life, what most people talk about is several orders of magnitude lesser than their inner experiences. Most people never reveal the singularity of their subjective experience.
    Maybe I should learn to explore other people's consciousness. Maybe I should aim for a real space between me and others. Instead of cultivating monologues and fantasies. It's hard, but the alternative to this seems to be madness. ~ lkdhf qkb

    It's straight and to the point. Martial types hate with a passion those who try to overcomplicate things. As you'd want said martial types to sign up you'd best adhere to the KISS doctrine. Keep it Simple Stupid. Thus, good name.

    Rename the present President to Blow Force. Blofeld is taken, anyway.

    I prefer the Netflix version of Space Force. Pretty hilarious.

    Why would it be a stupid name? Name is the same thing as Air Force except with a focus on space, which is exactly what they are.
