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
