Greetings Marine!

The STARFLEET Marine Corps is a group affiliated with STARFLEET, The International Star Trek Fan Association Inc. The SFMC is considered an office under the Vice Commander, STARFLEET and as such reports to Vice Commander, STARFLEET. Fictionally, the SFMC is part of the Ground Forces that are rarely seen in the episodes but are assumed to be a part of the Naval Fleet of the United Federation of Planets. We are members of STARFLEET. The Corps does not have different requirements for membership, except that a STARFLEET Marine must be a member in good standing in STARFLEET. Although it does have a different name for each rank within the promotional system, and a different organizational structure than the Naval portion of STARFLEET, STARFLEET Marines are regular, dues paying members. Some STARFLEET members are Marine Reserve. These are members who are active in the naval portion of the Fleet AND with the Ground Forces area as well. Occasionally you may find a STARFLEET Marine who is or was active military, but this is not a requirement to be in the Corps.

State of INFOCOM June 2014


As I prepare for my IC trip this year, I wanted to remind everyone it may be close but it’s not too late to recommend someone for the Communications Service Award. If you think someone is deserving of this award and would like it presented at IC this year, please send in your recommendation as soon as you can and I’ll do everything I can to get it ready for IC. To remind everyone, here are the requirements for the award.

This award is given at the discretion of the COINFOCOM to those Marines who have demonstrated their communications skills in service to the Corps in general, or INFOCOM in particular. Such skills may be demonstrated through contributing to SFMC, BDE, or unit publications; creation of superior quality SFMC-oriented websites; or other similar activities.

We are continuing to look for a permanent ADOE staff position. Here’s the requirements for the position.
Candidates for the position of ADOE Editor should meet the following criteria:
(1) Have passed OTS (OCC is recommended);

If you wish to apply for the editor position please send me your information and experience to infocom@sfi-sfmc.org
