Great show for kids to discover how amazing space even though it’s fictional

It’s an amazing show and will get kids interested in space, and along with this it has an amazing protagonist and antagonist!

What's the story?

MISSION FORCE ONE: CONNECT AND PROTECT is a series of children’s animated shorts based on the series Miles From Tomorrowland. Miles Callisto and his team of four highly skilled friends work for the Tomorrowland Transit Authority (TTA), which is responsible for making sure that everyone in the universe remains connected. They're constantly working against a new force called the Nemesystems, which is stealing the technology the TTA has created to control the universe. Miles leads his team, which uses STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) on space missions organized to ensure that the universe remains a welcoming place for species of all walks of life. 

Is it any good?

This bright and imaginative 8-installment series uses STEAM to create a foundation for creative and unique stories. Thanks to consultations with organizations like NASA, Google, and the Space Tourism Society, it tells these tales in ways that are both entertaining and educational. Guest characters voiced by actors like Yara Shahidi, Bill Nye, and Mark Hamill also add to the amusement. 

Children who like space and adventure will be drawn to the the narratives featured here, as well as the range of tools, colorful space outfits, and other technology highlighted during each adventure. Each approximately three-minute installment is short enough to to keep them engaged, too. Mission Force One: Connect and Protect offers a great opportunity for learning while having some screen time fun.
