President Donald Trump has made his plans for a sixth branch of the armed forces very clear: We have to protect space.

This idea of a Space Force is a very real thing that the president has proposed multiple times, and the creative minds behind The Office are making it real … kind of. Steve Carell and Greg Daniels have joined together again to co-create a nonsensical workplace comedy based on the nonsensical idea. Space Force will premiere on Netflix on May 29.

In the series, the four-star general pilot Mark R. Naird (Steve Carell) suddenly becomes the head of the Space Force. He had always dreamed of running the Air Force, but this new responsibility requires him to move his family to a remote base in Colorado and head a team of scientists and “Spacemen.” The team’s mission? To get American boots on the moon (again) and achieve total space domination.

Space Force also stars John Malkovich, Diana Silvers, Lisa Kudrow, and Ben Schwartz.
