From the time the United Federation of Planets was founded by the four planetary governments of United Earth, Vulcan, the Andorian Empire, and Tellar, into a federal republic, its principles remain universal liberty, rights, and equality to share knowledge and resources in a peaceful cooperation of space exploration.
Formed widely after the ancient military forces of Earth, the Starfleet Marine Corps maintains much of the ideology and customs of their namesakes, the United States Marine Corps and the Royal Marines. For more than 700 years, the tradition of the Marines to be the first line defenders of freedom and justice prevails in the modern Starfleet Marine Corps.
A post in the Marines grants a player the opportunity to be creative; to use all the resources they have to their advantage as well as developing squadrons, piloting fighters and designing battle tactics. Everything from a hostile takeover of the Bridge to an emergency in Main Engineering can require the multiple and ample skills of the Marines.
