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 TRACOM February 2012


Things are a little crazy at the moment at TRACOM HQ so I'll be keeping this very very short.

As I announced a few minutes ago, Tiny Hollifield is in the hospital and in need of all the prayers/good wishes/etc. you can send his way. I'll be covering his duties until his return.

Shane has resolved his computer issues and is working the ADC backlog as quickly as possible. Overdue e-certs should be forthcoming Corps-wide.

The application period for the Infantry Director post is still open for a few more days. Anyone who has not yet applied for the post but is interested should make application as soon as possible.

The Numbers:

January saw 204 grades issued to 57 students.
The First half of February (1-15) saw 110 grades issued to 30 students.

Final Notes:
It is again becoming a problem that Course Requests are being directed to the wrong people. This is happening because the Request Form is not being filled out correctly. In order for your request to be processed in the most timely fashion possible, students MUST make sure that on the first drop-down menu, you select the correct school. Please be careful when filling out this form.

Thanks for your time.
