Maquis Forces Marine Corps (MFMC)
Tactical Operations Command Center
Welcome to Maquis Forces Marine Corps (MFMC)
We are a Branch of MFI, and as a "Line Office," we report to the Chief of Operations, MFI, and through the COO and the International Coordinator of MFI. Fictionally, the Corps is part of the Ground Forces never seen in the Star Trek episodes, but which are assumed to have operated as a part of the Maquis Resistance during the Dominion War period. The MFI proudly proclaims themselves the "Rebels of Fandom" and we are considered an "elite" Branch within the MFI.
We are members of MFI first and foremost. WE ARE NOT US MARINES AND WE DON'T SEEK TO COPY THEM OR ANY OTHER MILITARY ORGANIZATION. You will occasionally find a MFI member who has served in the military, but this is not a pre-requisite to join us. While we do have different terminology and structures than other Services, Branches and Departments in MFI, our only requirement for membership is that you first be a member of MFI in good standing. Some of our members participate as "Marine Reservists" meaning that their primary interaction with Trek and Fandom is as MFI members firstly, and Maquis Forces Marines secondly. Other members are "Active Duty" meaning that they function within MFI as Marines first, whether in Marine-oriented units or as members of a MFI cell.
We operate under the Marine Handbook, an addendum or addition to the MFI Handbook. In the Handbook, we illustrate the Corps, how the Corps interacts with the rest of MFI and how to use it for your own benefit.We also have our own Listserver, the GROUNDPOUNDER and a column by the same name runs within the MFI BADLANDS newsletter.
MFI Marines participate in cell (local), Zone (regional) or even MFI-wide activities, just like any other MFI members. From local and national conventions, online chatrooms, and other events, to informal pizza parties. We even hold our own activities at times, or present a "group front" at larger events. These can range from something like a local bowling party, to charitable fund raising events like Red Cross blood drives or the USMC's "Toys for Tots. Many of our members also participate in SIM or Role play action and table top war games such as Battletech "
We also have our own school within the Maquis Academy. The Marine School not only introduces and prepares MFI members to participate within the MFMC, but also offers fandom courses about the various Marine Occupational Specialties (MOS) within the Corps. And of course, the MFI College does the same for Maquis Force Marines as a whole, with the quality courses they offer.
The Corps is dedicated to the idea that every Marine has the obligation to be a committed and viable part of their communities, both fandom and "Real Life" communities, as Mr. Roddenberry set us the challenge to be.
Do you have what it takes?
If you think you do, then by all means join us and...
Welcome Aboard, Marine!
