Huh, okay. I thought the B-21 was a 'current' replacement and not intended to be this futuristic program.

Afaik, it's the only next-gen bomber the AF is currently planning. The plan is to retire the B-2s and B-1s as enough B-21s become operational. The B-52 is going to be re-engined and upgraded to keep it flying into the 2040s and possibly beyond.

We'll still be using B-52s even when we have outer world colonies.

When I was a kid I had a fleet of twist-ties bent into shapes like the starship Enterprise and company from the show. It lasted until my Mom couldn't keep the bread from going stale because she had nothing to keep the bags closed with. My great Starfleet Armada couldn't defeat, 'The Wrath of Mom'.  :'(
