Gen. John W. "Jay" Raymond – the first Space Force chief of operations – led the presentation, bringing two so-called "Guardians" on stage to model the uniforms. "Its dark blue coat – almost black - with upturned collar, closes with a diagonal row of six buttons," Air Force Magazine wrote.

The six buttons are apparently a nod to the agency's establishment as the U.S. Armed Forces' sixth branch. Also included in the uniforms are "mirror-finish U.S. pins worn on the collar and silver braid near the cuffs."

Images of the uniforms were shared across social media, with comparisons to various space-age uniforms seen in popular sci-fi fan favorites like "Galaxy Quest," "Star Trek" and "Battlestar Galactica."

Raymond explained the agency will accept comments and tweaks in the coming months before the uniforms undergo testing.
