The 7th Fleet Marines were part of the Seventh Fleet RPG.

PremiseEdit

The Marines of the Seventh Fleet were in actuality, the 8th Marine Expeditionary Force headed up by Lieutenant General Brad Zeak. The 8th MEF was on detached service with the Seventh Fleet indefinitely due to their heavy work with the Spacial Rifts that tear through normal space. The most famous unit within 8MEF was by far, Epsilon Detachment which is a part of the 8th Special Assault Battalion of the 8th Division. Epsilon Detachment is currently led by First Lieutenant Cyrus Perseus and is based out of the USS Naphalai.

The mission of the 8th MEF was to secure the protection of the members of the 7th Fleet and to ensure that any hostile force from life forms from the rifts was met with swift action.

HistoryEdit

After the First Federation-Klingon War in 2267, the Federation Council decided that it would perhaps be best to reinstate an organization with the absolute purpose of defense of the Federation at its core. After much deliberation, the re-formation of the Federation Marine Corps was announced on 30 August 2270. This became known as the birthday of the FMC.

From the beginning of its creation, the Federation Marine Corps was placed under the Starfleet Command which was already part of the Federation Department of Space Exploration and Defense. At first only a single division consisting of 19,000 Marines was authorized with all support such as logistics and such coming from Starfleet. The first commander of this unit and as such of the FMC was Major General Thomas McCallister. He was complacent however and the FMC remained nothing more than a Marine division until he retired in 2278. His successor, Major General Andre Boudreaux saw the FMC through a period of major change. Support services were given over to Marines, new units were created such as the Air Wing, and Artillery. Marine Transports were designed and built. By the time he retired as a Lieutenant General and commander of the 1st MEF, General Boudreaux had instituted changes that what cause the Marines to grow into a healthy superior fighting force. Over time, eight more MEFs were created. By the time, the FMC reached its centennial, it boasted numbers of 900,000 Marines serving across the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.

Sergeant Major
The ninth and highest enlisted rank, just above First Sergeant, and equal in grade to Master Gunnery Sergeant, although the two have different responsibilities. Sergeant Major is both a rank and a military "billet". Marine Corps Sergeants Major serve as the senior enlisted Marine in the Corps' units of battalion, squadron or higher echelon, to assist the unit's commander and to handle matters of discipline and morale among the enlisted Marines.

Master Gunnery Sergeant
The ninth and highest enlisted rank (along with the grade-equivalent ranks of Sergeant Major and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps) in the Federation Marine Corps. Master Gunnery Sergeants are staff non-commissioned officers (SNCOs) and are assigned a pay grade of E-9.

Sometimes referred to as "Master Guns" or "Master Gunny." These nicknames are unacceptable in formal or ceremonial situations, and, at the rank holder's discretion, may also be unacceptable for use by lower-ranking Marines.

First Sergeant
It is equal in grade to Master Sergeant, although the two ranks have different responsibilities. First Sergeant have a command responsibility while Master Sergeants have technical responsibilities. No lateral movement is possible between the two ranks in the Marine Corps. In their annual performance evaluations, called "fitness reports," eligible Gunnery Sergeant indicate whether they wish to be considered for promotion to Master Sergeant or First Sergeant. A First Sergeant is then eligible to be promoted to a Sergeant Major while a Master Sergeant would be on the promotional track for Master Gunnery Sergeant.

Master Sergeants in the Federation Marine Corps provide technical leadership as occupational specialists at the E-8 level.

Gunnery Sergeant
The seventh enlisted rank in the Federation Marine Corps and is a staff non-commissioned officer. It has a pay grade of E-7.

Gunnery sergeants are commonly referred to by the informal abbreviation "gunny." This nickname is usually regarded as a title of esteem and/or camaraderie, and is generally acceptable for use in all situations except formal and ceremonial ones. Use of the term by lower-ranking personnel, however, remains at the gunnery sergeant's discretion

Corporal
The fourth enlisted rank in the Federation Marine Corps. Corporal is the lowest grade of non-commissioned officer in the Federation Marine Corps though promotion to Corporal traditionally confers a large jump in authority and responsibility compared to promotion from Private through Lance Corporal. It is also the first Marine rank requiring competition among peers rather than simple "time in grade" promotions and therefore sometimes difficult to attain. Marine Corporals generally serve as "fire-team leaders," commanding a 4-man team or unit of similar size. In support units, they direct the activities of junior Marines and provide technical supervision. Because of its emphasis on small-unit tactics, the Marine Corps usually places Corporals in billets where other services have traditionally had an E-5 or E-6 in authority. Similarly, the term "Strategic Corporal" refers to the special responsibilities conferred upon a Marine Corporal

Lance Corporal
The third lowest enlisted rank. It is not a non-commissioned officer rank. A Lance Corporal is not referred to as a Lance (unless you are a Marine), but as a Lance Corporal, never as Corporal. Because of them not being of NCO status, only ranks same or above call a Lance Corporal by last name. Three common Marine nicknames for a Lance Corporal are "Lance Coolie", "Lance Coconut", "Lance Colonel", or "Lance Criminal".

Private
Only refers to the lowest enlisted rank. A Marine Corps Private wears no uniform insignia. Most new, non-officer marines begin their military career as a Private.
