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 May 2013


In the few short weeks I have been assigned as COINFOCOM, I have been busy. Currently I’m trying to fill several key staff positions in INFOCOM. If you or If you know anyone who has the skills required to fill a vacant position, please encourage them to join the team, there’s still time.
We are continuing to improve the SFMC website with additional features. I have had a few requests and suggestions from members of the Corps for additional items to be added. I’m compiling a list and once we have a full staff we will discuss, prioritize and set a project plan in motion with time lines to complete each item on the list. The website isn’t the only area we will be striving to improve once our vacant staff positions are filled and the new staff members become familiar with their new duties, we will be able to address these open issues.
As mentioned above we are looking to fill the following INFOCOM vacant staff positions.
DCOINFOCOM, Web team and the G-3 Publications Officer. I have posted the requirements for each position so I will not duplicate that information here. If you are interested in any of the open staff position or have any questions please contact me at infocom@sfi-sfmc.org.

With IC coming up in a few months, I want to request submissions for the Communications Achievement award. The COINFOCOM issues this award. If you have accomplished something you feel qualifies you for this award or if you know somebody who has done something that you think qualifies that person for this award, please submit your request. Submissions can be made for several different areas. Such as designing a website or publishing a newsletter, writing a story, making a video. Some might think their work wasn't good enough or significant enough to qualify for this award. Let me just say, I’ll be the judge of that. As they say on TV you can’t win if you don’t enter.

In closing, INFOCOM has some work to do and I look forward to getting this work completed.
Thank you,

BGEN Mark "Slayer" Anderson
Commanding Officer, Information Command (COINFOCOM)
