I have problem thoery
First why stander Starfleet security not armed stun baton. Again hand phaser can be lethal close range.
Second it fail explain why United Earth would give MACO stun baton stand equipment. With no way turn it ieven into lethal weapon. My theory that MACO closer to anti terror special forces. Were for political reason they often did not use lethal force.
A gun/phaser isn't always easy to handle, especially at very close range. Not to mention that they probably don't have their phasers set to stun all the time, grabbing a stun baton and whacking/jabbing someone with the business end would be easier/more sure than trying to draw a phaser, hopefully aim it in the right direction, and pull the trigger, hopefully not getting any kind of 'splash back' from being that close to your target.
Enigma do even read what I write. What I saying is that because many different races that UFP face design general issue one design effective against multi different types armor.. Be jack of all trades as you put good general issue one.
Maybe you right about Andorian Imperial Guard. Advanced Interstellar Combat class might more tradition part of their education even I am wondering why Starfleet officers be take that course. I expect something more like advance hand to hand combat training for Federation security or something like that. Acting political correct say only culture exchange or something like that. Then again for all we know she want though advance hand to hand combat training.
