The Steve Carell magic will continue on Netflix as Office is replaced by Space Force, which supposedly gives wings to Trump’s space superiority dreams. On the contrary, it cuts them off.
A mammoth pandemic-sized plug has clogged President Trump’s Artemis program. Better known as the US Space Force, the aspirational mission returns Americans to the moon and aims to refortify space superiority. However, Netflix’s planned Space Force, the sixth military branch as directed by Trump, has faced no such hurdles. The streaming service recently announced the Steve Carell, John Malkovich, and Lisa Kudrow starring sitcom’s release. Space Force is out on the 29th of May.
Highlights! Space Force: Netflix Exposes Trump’s Absurd Plans
- Real-life problems on Steve Carell’s Space Force
- All this while Trump’s actual Space Force is far from reality
- But the promise of Presidential romance with Space continues
- Carell’s Space Force and Trump’s Oval Office gameplan
NASA had to stop testing and production of the Artemis program’s rockets and crew capsules as the coronavirus outbreak in the US hit Mississippi and Louisiana. The halt subsequently pushes the deadline back from 2024. Ironically, Trump Administration had pulled it from 2028 in a bid to make it a re-election subject. However, while the project may be on hold, Americans won’t have to wait to know the absurdity of the whole exercise as Steve Carell will lay it bare on Netflix’s Space Force.
Real-life problems on Steve Carell’s Space Force
Steve Carell’s new TV outing as Four-Star General Mark R. Naird, a decorated fighter pilot, takes up Trump’s challenge even when the Congress and NASA have been hesitant. Carell’s character dreams of leading the US Air Force but ends up being given the responsibility of leading the Presidential fascination with space forward. But while Carell’s new show looks like The Office-style spoof of President Trump’s aspirations, American fans will get to see the different oddities that are bound to arise in the actual Artemis program.
The show will focus on a patriotic general determined to fulfill his supreme commander’s dream. Carell is tasked with going back to the moon and making the sixth military branch a formidable force in itself. It will see him uproot his family and his dedicated wife, played by Lisa Kudrow. Together, they take off to unknown pastures in Colorado to set up new buildings and resources under the control of the US Space Force. Space Force also features a sensible, grounded scientist in John Malkovich who will be ignored at every step by the Trump-like character played by Steve Carell.
While Trump’s actual Space Force is far from reality
The show will focus on the viability of the new branch. It will ponder on the worth of its objectives and the irrational amounts of billions that it will take out of the American taxpayers’ pockets to push forward Trump’s propaganda. Reports note the problems of Pentagon’s reorganization to make space for a new branch with objectives of space warfare… or something.
Lawmakers and experts keep questioning Trump’s absurd proposal. In reality, the Space Force would cost $11.3 billion annually, as per a recent estimate from the Centre for Strategic and International Studies. Netflix’s Space Force will inadvertently work in favor of the Congressmen who have their inhibitions about the Artemis program. Steve Carell’s show also hurts the real motive behind Trump desire of seeing an American back on the moon before his projected second term ends in 2024.
But the promise of Presidential romance with Space continues
Ever since the Americans developed a moral superiority alongside the ugly show of military superiority in World War 2, several Presidents have taken to a delusional path towards the space race. America is made to believe that securing space against rivals like China and Russia is an obligation to the world. Unfortunately, many keep believing the narrative.
From JFK’s Man on the Moon speech to Ronald Reagan’s Strategic Defence Initiative which was famously dubbed as Star Wars, American Presidents love pushing space superiority as the ultimate test of progress for the world’s richest and most powerful country. Trump’s Space Force is similar in essence to Reagan’s Star Wars and also in what the mission aims to achieve – a sense of safety and pride that stems from gloating in technological prowess.
Carell’s Space Force and Trump’s Oval Office gameplan
Whatever giant air castles Trump might have made with his plans of adding a Moon landing to his ‘Make America Great Again’ agenda in 2024, the coronavirus pandemic will make him rethink the gameplan. With focus irrevocably to stay on public health, it would be an impossible task for Trump to convince Americans to shell billions into space with a recession looming overhead.
So, in all probability, Trump’s plan to spend billions and send a few astronauts into space might never be accomplished. However, Netflix’s Space Force will give more than a glimpse into the stupidity of Trump’s needless military branch. Finally, who better than Steve Carell to ensure the message hits the spot, all the way to Trump’s Oval Office.
