On June 18, 2018, President Donald Trump announced his intention of creating another branch of the military that he dubbed Space Force.

During a meeting of the National Space Council, the President stated:

“When it comes to defending America, it is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space. So important. Very importantly, I’m hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces. That’s a big statement.”

We are going to have the Air Force and we are going to have the Space Force — separate but equal. It is going to be something. So important.”

During a speech at the Pentagon on August 9, Vice President Mike Pence—the Chairman of the National Space Council— expanded on the plans to establish this Space Force.

The Department of Defense also issued an official statement. And shortly thereafter the Trump campaign sent an email to their Trump Pence Make America Great Again Committee donors asking them to vote on logo designs for the new military branch.

The message also mentions upcoming sales of a “new line of gear.”

But the internet being what it is, came up with some alternate designs of their own.

A few referenced another “force” from a galaxy far, far away.

And some even suggested a first project for the new military branch.

However some people saw a few similarities between the new logos and some existing ones. Like this image and NASA.
