Something else I’ve had in my hard drive, my version of a Starfleet Marine duty uniform. I’ve seen some other versions of the Starfleet Marine insignia and, while I always felt it should be inspired by the USMC insignia, I always thought they were too close to the USMC insignia. I tried to do something a little different while retaining the anchor and globe.

One problem I have with Starfleet Marines, however, is that there’s no canon proof they exist (aside from Enterprise). No mention, forget appearances, in TOS, TNG, DS9, or Voyager. And as I’ve been watching DS9 and the whole Dominion War storyline, there were plenty of opportunities to see Marines, from the planetary fronts of the Klingons attempt to conquer the Cardassians (a prelude to the Dominion War itself) to armed personnel patrol the streets of Earth. In every case, they were Starfleet personnel. No mention of Marines.

So, no HOO-YAH in the 24th century?


Good call BB3 on the Marines! You can always use some specialized troops to take care of things. I do agree that the UFP symbole looks out of place, and would think that the standard Starfleet logo might be more appropriate on a black background there. Just my .02 cents on that part. Hope to see more of this soon

marines are not only a usa idea. many countries have them. (alot are historical now) but when i was in the army i had a good freind in the marines and helped him study for a board or if i remmber the promotion board and i recall somthing about 11 countries having acting marines. since humans were one of the primary founders of the federation i cant see why they wouldnt have a specialized ground force. and dont see any reason why they couldnt be called martines. just my thought

Actually there are 54 countries that have Marine Corps. Pretty much any country that has a Navy has a Marine corps, the USMC just happens to be the largest and most well known group of Marines. Since Starfleet is pretty much a space faring Naval force it would be safe to be that it would also have a Marine Corps. The USMC also has specialized reconnaissance groups called Force Recon, which are highly trained small units that are designed to be inserted into hostile territory in order to provide intelligence. You can’t always send a probe and I also can’t see why there couldn’t be Marines in Starfleet.  Granted it isn’t “canon” YET, but they are still making movies and you never know when they will do another TV series.

Looks good! Only question I have is: why does it have the UFP symbol on it? I realize that Starfleet is essentially the ‘military’ arm of the Federation, but since none of the other divisions have it, it seems excessive here. I like the anchor; what about simply putting the Starfleet chevron over a round backing, similar to what you have (maybe it could include a top-down view of a spiral galaxy) and have the anchor through that, instead of through a UFP symbol? What you have is nicely done - it just seems a little too much of a good thing wink.

Uniform looks great, though cool smile.

Thanks for the comments.

I’ll explain why I used the UFP symbol. Like I said earlier, I wanted the insignia to be remniscent of the USMC symbol without being a total rip-off. The two most important elements (in my opinion) are the anchor and the globe. Only one problem. The globe represents that the Marines are ready to fight anywhere on the planet. Not really the image for an interstellar organization. So, I used the UFP symbol to represent that the Marines are willing to go anywhere in the Federation to fight for it.

Besides, it’s not the only time Starfleet has used the UFP logo. The end of every Starfleet transmission has the UFP logo, not the Starfleet Command logo. I also noticed on DS9 that during the Dominion War, all the “standby” screens use the UFP logo.
