Starfleet Marine Uniform Descriptions
created by Bradley Clark
Starfleet Marines wear a form-fitting high turtleneck
collared dark green 1 piece environmental jumpsuit with numerous pockets of
various sizes, high top combat boots (which some Earth Marines refer to as Black
Cadillacís much to the puzzlement of the other non-Earth marines) and a
dark green beret with the Federation flag as a cap badge. There are some
exceptions and additions to the uniform; they are as follows:
- Security Auxiliaries wear a black armband with white
bold letters (SP) worn on the left arm.
- Starfleet Marine Armored personnel wear a black beret.
Standard regiments have a silver stylized 20th century main
battle tank as the cap badge. Armored Regiments that trace their origins
back to pre-existing armored regiments wear those units cap badges.
- Starfleet Marine Corps Force Recon personnel wear a red
beret with the old USMC globe and anchor badge.
- Starfleet Marine Fighter pilots wear outspread eagle
wings on the left breast. Marine assault shuttle pilots wear a single wing
on the left side of their jumpsuits.
- Starfleet Marine officers belonging to the JAG Corps
wear stylized balances as a cap badge.
- Rank insignia is worn on the left side of the collar,
whether by enlisted or commissioned personnel.
- On the left shoulder all SFMC personnel wear their
divisional badges and on the right shoulder, marines wear a starshipís
badge or a starbase crest.
- Starfleet Marines are also issued an assault vest which
also has numerous cargo pockets for phaser recharge packs, PADDS, etc. It
gives +2 protection vs. energy attacks and +2 vs. physical attacks.
- Although it is not authorized, some Marine commanders
will allow traditional weapons to be carried while in the field. The only
stipulation usually is that they approve it and that the individual is
proficient in the use of the weapon. Marine commanders usually do not
authorize the use of spears and or polearms.
