Just wondering if there was any interest in a "Marine" type unit that didn't command or even operate in space, other than to get from one planet to the next. Seems KDF would be better cut-out for this, but the Feds would need something like it as well.
Just a thought. Maybe even create a drop-ship transport carrier?
In DS9 episodes "Seige of AR-558" and "Nor the Battle to the Strong", we were introduced to Starfleets Ground Units. Which were the inspriation for the MACOs. But in Star Trek, they were the successors of the MACOs.
But when you start thinking about it you have need for separate factions like when you start to play STO and start a FED you choose Star fleet Marines of Star fleet Space .
O that would an significant rebuild they never would do this...
