The Space Force doesn't know what to call its troops

(Thanks to kenzen in Oregon, who says "I bet we can help." He also suggests "Half-Astronauts.")

Space Cadets...

Or depending on their actual role in the universe, how about "Intergalactic Prophylactics"?

Super Troopers?

Starship Troopers


Star Flyers

Jefferson Starshippers.

*DO NOT* entertain suggestions from the space people who named Uranus.

Prefer Thug Geese a smidge over Hells Angels.

How about the NTANAMs? Not The Army Navy Air Force or Marines. The military loves acronyms


Junior Birdmen.


Ralph, you beat me to it!

Given recent developments, I don't think they'd want to be called "Astro"-anything.

For the women in the Space Force, how about "Planet WAVES"? And may they stay forever young.

Will they be equipped with the Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator?

wanderer, I don't think so. That thing was designed to blow up the earth (it blocked Marvin's view of Venus), which would make it sort of hard for them to land when the mission was over.

Star Farce

Super Dupper Cosmic Troopper.


Spacey McSpacemen
