the MACOs are mentioned in the Needs of the Many book. Some of the other books have suggested that there are Starfleet Ground Forces, as I recall, the people fighting on Ajilon Prime in Nor the Battle to the Strong are referred to as soldiers, suggesting that they are more then just starfleet crewmen, and there is definitely mention of some sort of Special Operations Group. The Uniforms worn by the soldiers on AR-558, and Ajilon prime are referred to as "Surface Operations Blacks" in the books and backstage sources; they fit on over the standard uniform undershirt and the books claim that they provide some additional protection against phaser shots.
