General Order 1
As a MFI Marine, I will take charge of my cell or any other unit of MFI, when requested, and I will never shirk my obligation to lead others. I will perform all duties assigned to myself, or requested by myself to the best of my abilities, recognizing that there is honor in a job done to the best of my abilities. The honor in self-betterment is in the search. I will always share my abilities for the betterment of the group. I am a Maquis, a Rebel. I fight for my family, friends and community. I will always do so, to the best of my abilities.
General Order 2
As a MFI Marine, I will always conduct myself in a professional Military Maquis manner, keeping always on the alert and observing everything that takes place within sight or hearing. I will never be caught off-guard.

As a MFI Marine, I pledge to follow the idea of IDIC - Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations. I will never tolerate, promogulate or support bigoted, divisive thinking or ideology or tolerate those who do so.
General Order 10
As a MFI Marine, I pledge to recognize the rank of "officers" higher in the group than myself. I will always respect the honor and integrity of those "superior" officers, and that of the MFI and MFMC. I promise to show the same respect and tolerance of "subordinate" MFI members at all times, recognizing that the "rank" I hold is fictional.
General Order 11
As a MFI Marine, I pledge to - always - have fun with likeminded Trek fans, whenever, wherever and however the chance presents itself.
General Order 12
If, during part of my MFI experience, I become a "prisoner of war" during an event with an "allied" fan group, I will keep faith with my fellow Maquis. I will give no information nor take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey lawful orders of those appointed over me and will back them in every way. If in command, I will never surrender the members of my command to fan groups outside MFI while they still have the means to resist. If I am captured I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and to aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.
