    To me, this is hardly the beginning of Starfleet and more like the beginning of WW3. Basically, creating a military branch that specifically deals with space is stating your intention to officially "weaponize" space, which seems like it would turn it into a battlefield instead of a neutral zone. I think it's a bad idea.

    Nasa is the agency that could grow into a Starfleet - most of the astronauts are military personnel anyway, or have been military personnel. But it's the "force" in Space Force that's the problem. It seems like it would create a space race, and you know how space races go....
