We live in the age of the "Xerox of a Xerox," and even cultural peers are being restarted and revived at the service of endless content. So it makes sense that such a principle should extend to our government, but an icon of geek culture believes that the Space Force's lifting went too far. Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars films, was the newest military branch for stealing its terminology and iconography from Marvel, Star Wars, and Star Trek.
In response to a tweet from James Gunn, the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, Hamill explained the full extent of the Space Force theft.
Even the idea of naming a massive defense project after fictional science fiction is a complete overhaul in itself. Ronald Reagan's aborted missile defense system in space was actually called "Star Wars". Although the idea of a Space Force and its Star Trek * ahem * inspired logo both got round ribs, the announcement that Space Force members would be called "Guardians" set off alarm bells.
