- All-Star Cast: The cast is headlined by Steve Carell, John Malkovich and Ben Schwartz, with Lisa Kudrow, Fred Willard, Jane Lynch, Patrick Warburton and Diedrich Bader in recurring roles.
- Dueling Works: With Showtime's Moonbase 8, though that show had already been filmed and was awaiting a home by the time Space Force was announced.
- In Memoriam: The first episode is dedicated to Fred Willard in recognition of it being his final acting role prior to his death.
- Playing Against Type:
- Steve Carell is primarily known for playing fools, goobers and wimps. Here he's playing a hard-nosed and intelligent military officer.
- Ditto with the same character in the Japanese dub, in a way: Mark is voiced by Bin Shimada, who is normally typecasted on voicing either scheming or psychotic villains, something that's not the case here.
- Typecasting: Ben Schwartz plays his usual hyperactive, irritating but positive character type as the PR guy. Competence level "medium" in this variation.
- Production Posse: Steve Carell and Greg Daniels reunite for the first time since The Office (US).
