STARFLEET Marine Corps - News

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 August 2012

State of INFOCOM August 2012

Unlike the last few SOTRs, I'm going to keep this one short.

As we all found out earlier in the week, BDR Mike Timko has resigned from
COINFOCOM. Those of us in INFOCOM thank him for his service and wish him
well on his future endeavors. At his request, he's asked to remain in
INFOCOM as the G3 officer, which I have graciously agreed to allow him to
remain on.

If you are interested in becoming the next COINFOCOM, please send in your
application to our Commandant, Bruce O'Brien at dant at

There's been no downtime that is recordable for the last four weeks, which
brings us within our 99.9% up-time record. If you are having a problem
accessing the website or any of the sfmc services please contact me at
infocom at so I can look into it.

The SFMC WebTeam has been hard at work with our new website.
We are not quite ready to start beta-testing the site just yet, but we're
making extremely good progress.

Unfortunately, the SFMC Website Design Challenge that I issued a month ago
proceeded along with no submissions. Due to this unfortunate result, I have
only ONE design available for the new site, which will be provided with the
beta site. Since there is only one design, I will not be opening any voting
for the membership to decide which design(s) would have been best.

Hopefully we will have a beta site available within the next three to four
weeks (before my next SOTR) and we will announce that when it goes online.

Semper Fi Marines!
