In the mid-winter night in coastal South Carolina, Earth. 3 shuttles land under a floodlight that is casting a ghostly pallor in front of the steel doors of a homely and institutional brick building.

The back hatches fold down.
From the building a uniformed man with a canvas hat bursts forth. Your's is one of sixty heads on the shuttles, that crane to watch the man’s approach. You are curious and apprehensive.


When the uniformed man reaches the shuttle, he vomits a flury of nearly unintelligible commands, his tone unrelenting and cruel. It takes less than 60 seconds for you and the others to file off the shuttles and take formation on the yellow footprints outlined on the ground. It’s you're first step in the Marine regimen.



"You are now at Marine Corps Depot Parris Island, South Carolina. You have taken the first step of becoming a member of the universe's finest fighting force, the Starfleet Marine Corps. You should be standing at attention. That means, your heels are together, your feet are at a 45-degree angle, your thumbs on your trousers, your palms rolled back, your fingers are at a natural curl, your head is staring straight to the front, and your mouth is shut. I say again, your mouth is shut. This is the only way you will speak to a Marine, fleeter, or civilian aboard this depot. Do you understand??"


“Aye, sir.”

“Do you understand?!”

“Aye, sir!!!”


“Success in the Marine Corps depends on team work. Therefore teamwork is an essential part of your training here on Parris Island. Starting now, you will train as a team. You will live, eat, sleep, train as a team. The words ‘I,’ ‘me,’ ‘we’ are no longer part of your vocabulary. You will use words like, ‘these recruits’ and ‘those recruits.’ Do you understand?”

“Aye, sir!”
“Do you understand?!!!”

“Aye, sir!!!!!!”


You have now taken your first steps into a different world... a different life...

The Change is forever....


Do you think you have what it takes?


The Few, The Proud, The Marines.

AURORA MARINE OPERATIONS COMMAND


Why are Starfleet Marines considered among the galaxy's premier warriors? Why? What puts the Marine Corps above the rest? Other military services have rigorous training and weapons of equal or greater lethality. So, why do Starfleet Marines stand head and shoulders above the crowd?

The truth lies in the individual Marine. He (or she) did not join the Marines. Roughly 40,000 try each year. Those who survive the crucible of Marine boot camp have been sculpted in mind and body. They have become Marines.

Once he has earned the title and entered the Brotherhood of Marines, a new warrior must draw upon the legacy of his Corps. Therein lies his strength. In return, the strength of the Corps lies in the individual Marine. The character of these warriors is defined by the three constant Corps Values: honor, courage, and commitment.

Honor: Honor requires each Marine to exemplify the ultimate standard in ethical and moral conduct. Honor is many things; honor requires many things. A Marine must never lie, never cheat, never steal, but that is not enough. Much more is required. Each Marine must cling to an uncompromising code of personal integrity, accountable for his actions and holding others accountable for theirs. And, above all, honor mandates that a Marine never sully the reputation of his Corps.

Courage: Simply stated, courage is honor in action -- and more. Courage is moral strength, the will to heed the inner voice of conscience, the will to do what is right regardless of the conduct of others. It is mental discipline, an adherence to a higher standard. Courage means willingness to take a stand for what is right in spite of adverse consequences. This courage, throughout the history of the Corps, has sustained Marines during the chaos, perils, and hardships of combat. And each day, it enables each Marine to look in the mirror -- and smile.

Commitment: Total dedication to Corps and Federation. Gung-ho Marine teamwork. All for one, one for all. By whatever name or cliche, commitment is a combination of (1) selfless determination and (2) a relentless dedication to excellence. Marines never give up, never give in, never willingly accept second best. Excellence is always the goal. And, when their active duty days are over, Marines remain reserve Marines, retired Marines, or Marine veterans. There is no such thing as an ex-Marine or former-Marine. Once a Marine, always a Marine. Commitment never dies.


The three Corps Values: honor, courage, commitment. They make up the bedrock of the character of each individual Marine. They are the foundation of his Corps. These three values, handed down from generation to generation, have made the Marines the Warrior Elite. The Starfleet Marine Corps: the most respected and revered fighting force in the Federation.

Can you seperate yourself from the crowd?

There are those who dedicate themselves...
To a sense, of Honor.
To a life, of Courage, and a Commitment to something greater than themselves.
They have always defended this Federation, and each other.
They still do, because across the universe there are a select few...
Who, at their very core... are capable, of incredible transformation.
Under the most grueling conditions...
They are Shaped...
Hardened...
Sharpened...
Ready, to stand among the most elite of all warriors...
