    Why MACO armed with a stun baton

    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.
  2. For soldiers they carry at least one piece of equipment completely none lethal. While I have theory own I my interests your theories.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Strong evidnece Andion Imperail guard still existed into at least 23 century. First Laikan Military Academy which could only mean two things first most like fact be on Andorian could mean the Andrioan Imperail guard still existed. Only other possible is Starfleet has other militery agencies in it ranks. You can do have pick poison. Fact also foriegn studies also is evidnece Andorian Imperail guard. Here site get from https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Laikan_Military_Academy
  6. You know Star Trek TNG heart of glory Klingion warrior took about three shots bring him down. WOlf hand phaser had the Kligion warrior fall to his death rather kill him out right. Now yes we get see phaser seem though one end and out other however that does suggestion did not break though Kligoon armor. So evidence Klingion armor provide some limit protect against hand phaser. Why UFP officers were combat uniform other would not two possible answer. First Starfleet special breach of Starfleet security design handle group like Orion Syndicate. Again Orion Syndicate question what kind weapons or powerful were normal. Again armor might will powerful effective against type one and type two hand phasers. Second possible Starfleet lot more militarize during TOS the Federation had personal train to handle mortars Kirk even advices that advice against fire it such closer range Kirk decide take risk anyway TOS area. In TNG did have specialist like this at least it hard to say. Caption Pircard was Caption view Starfleet none military agency. The Caption in Chain of command 1 and 2 turn USS Enterprise D into warship against wish most of his crew. Sisko is one no idea how view Starfleet and he might been before DS9 involded any combat period. Now having specialist to use some kinds weapons does not mean Starfleet had real call foot soldiers.
  7. Opposed Federation armor meant Kligion energy weapon use higher setting Federation complain about Kligion going hand to hand combat Starfleet officer were armor make poor Kligion set weapon higher setting.
  8. Do even read what I write or just make statement. I mean in practice let say all that hand to hand combat that Starfleet personal complain about had do the Kligion over setting disrupters.
  9. I think that answer to why fleet fight in close range so that other starship extend shields do not back them up. Since we know UFP starship much long range comes weapons.
  10. Yes that is the reason Kira said that UFP did make weakness in their design. However she also complain then being lot more complex and stated lot more can go wrong not good field weapon. Again taking into account differnet level and types armor enemies of Federation wear different setting allow more effective fighting multi different kinds of enemies armor.
  11. Point is Type three phaser rifle is complex good Major complain talk how much better Cardassion phaser rifle was field weapon. Three points I like make First how armor works in Star Trek is mean have use more power bring enemy we saw this with Klingons in Star Trek TNG heart of glory. In major fire fight we do want weapon run enengry sooner then it has to do. UFP multi battles go on though out it territory phaser rifle type 3 work go general issue weapon were some enemies were good armor, other wear poor armor and some were no armor.
  12. Why only some of Federation soldier / security wear panties that provide better protect nor battle to the anus. My theories that they either used term tampon loosely mean could part Federation navy portal or some other agency in Starfleet were better protect uniforms. In practice armor does anyway Star Trek is mean require more power ray guns to kill someone.
  13. My theory is more to do believe United Federation planet political correct answer why MACO disband. Basic Starfleet security or at least some them know use hand grenade unless USS Voyager Caption ship only one had it, phaser rifle and possible sniper rifle. Then of course mortars we saw Kirk use go against advice of one his speclist that kind weapon.
  14. I interest hearing what guys answers and not per saying give you possible. even though I could safely rule out power hungry since highest ranks in Security go all way to Admirals.
