Have you played any Episode Mission lately? I tried to "roleplay" a char and play all missions, really reading everything and taking my time. I stopped when I was told to kill all Klingons near the Federation ambassadors, just to "avoid beaming them up accidentally". STO's Starfleet has nothing to do with Gene Rodenberry's. Could have been so easy for them. Stun them on the Ground, disable ships instead of blowing everything up...

This is more like Star Trek Online - Mirror Universe. So yes, we need Marines...
