The Season 2 finale (Season 2, Episode 7 - Hacks) of the Netflix space comedy Space Force contains a Rush reference. Towards the beginning of the episode (around the 2:20 mark), Dr. Adrian Mallory (John Malkovich) and Dr. Chan Kaifang (Jimmy O. Yang) are checking on the status of their satellites along with Erin Yaird (Diana Silvers) and Xyler, and the 2 satellites they are examining are named Genesis 35X-20 and RUSH 2112 as seen in this screenshot. Erin notices this and remarks, "Are all your satellites named after '70s rock bands?" To which Dr. Mallory replies, "I never made that connection", and Dr. Chan says "me neither". The episode also includes satellites named Blue Oyster Cult, REO Speedwagon, Deep Purple and Supertramp. You can check out the episode on Netflix here (subscription required).
