Space Force's goal is to protect USA military assets in space from threats from Russian Federation and China, which have tested anti-satellite weapons and created their own space military services.
President Donald Trump tweeted out the new crest for the recently established Space Force - now the sixth branch of the United States military - and Twitter users lost their minds about how it's pulled straight from Star Trek.
According to the space force's mission statement it should: "Organise, train, and equip space forces in order to protect US and allied interests in space and to provide space capabilities to the joint force".
Trekkies and others on social media were equal parts bewildered and infuriated.
Trump critic George Takei, who played Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek, suggested that he might be entitled to compensation in light of the similarities.
Trumpinitially floated the idea of creating a Space Force in March 2018, saying he originally came up with the name as a joke.
The new logo is not the first time Space Force has drawn mockery on the internet.
"So much more going on behind the scenes than most are preparing for". In fact, many pointed out that the logo is damn-near identical to the Starfleet logo.
Way to boldly go where others have clearly gone before, Trump. Trump tweeted Friday alongside a picture of the seal.
The first series of Star Trek debuted in 1966 on US TV network NBC.
