Soldiers in space

A four-star general begrudgingly teams up with an eccentric scientist to get the US military’s newest agency, Space Force, in Netflix’s new sitcom.
The Office creator Greg Daniels and star Steve Carell reunite in the series, Space Force, that parodies President Trump’s proposed military branch of the same name.
“On June 18, 2018, the federal government announced the creation of a sixth major division of the United States Armed Forces,” says the sci-fi-aping teaser that outlines the plot.
“The goal of the new branch is ‘to defend satellites from attack’ and ‘perform other space-related tasks.’ Or something.
“This is the story of the men and women who have to figure it out.”
Space Force marks Daniels’ and Carell’s first project together since the US version of The Office.
