Starfleet Marines are tasked with providing security when and where it's needed, whether it's guard duty on a Starbase, protecting a civilian population on a planet, clearing pirates from a ship, or patrolling civilian traffic in a solar system. Marines are trained to use the big rifles, the heavier sidearms, the small fast fighters. They are seen most often in combat situations, so seldom get the recognition seen in other areas of Starfleet in more peaceful times.
