Third Marine Expeditionary Unit

Third Marine Expeditionary Unit

The Third Marine Expeditionary Unit, under the command of Colonel Bryan Accomack, is currently assigned to the Fourth Fleet, Task Force 38. The 3rd MEU is a full Marine Air-Ground Task Force operating with a Ground Combat Battalion, Marine Combat Air Group, Medical Support Detachment, and a Service and Support Battalion.

The 3rd MEU is currently assigned to Aketi III where it is conducting peacekeeping operations between governments that grew and split from a thought to be lost colony convoy launched years ago. This planet and its colony were discovered by Task Force 38 in the Delta Quadrant while conducting explorative operations.

With a government welcoming the Federation with open arms, one wanting nothing to do with them, and a third just trying to stay neutral the Federation Council decided the colony still are within Federation jurisdiction and ordered that the Starfleet Marine Corps gain control of the planet and prepare them to be made a full planet within Federation territory and jurisdiction.

I hope everyone is enjoying our fantastic new theme on the website, thanks to Kristen. I did learn, however, that the native wiki as part of the NOVA system is not a fan. I'm not too concerned as I'm not a fan of thresher and I prefer using a separate wiki for my sites. That being said I have launched a new wiki that is being constructed as we create canon for the sim.

Any member of the sim wishing to be part of our Wiki Development team should contact me directly.

The database can be accessed from the NOVA's main menu or the home page.

"Colonel got a minute?"

Accomack swiveled in his chair to face the open door, "sure, what's up?"
