Writing the MACOs Into Starfleet.
The Military Assault Command Operations became a part of Star Trek: Enterprise in season three. Not a division of Starfleet, they were a United Earth military organization that had trained relentlessly as soldiers, but had little actual battle experience outside of simulations, though their technology and tactics were more advanced. Rumor has it that after The United Federation of Planets was founded, Starfleet turned towards science and exploration, and the MACOs were likely no longer a good fit for such missions. So what happened to them?
In this episode of Warp Five, hosts Patrick Devlin and Brandi Jackola are joined by special guest Richard Marquez of Earl Grey in the Season Five Writers' Room to create a story about MACOs integrating into Starfleet. We discuss big kitchens, MACO snack habits, shag wall carpeting, and Romulans.
