Re: Star Trek: Online: The Needs of the Many - Discussion (Spoilers)

For all that people are bitching about Martin somehow portraying soldiers stereotypically and unflatteringly in Star Trek Online: The Needs of the Many, I'd point out that he portrays numerous sympathetic, and deeply thoughtful, MACO characters in his ENT novels, including Last Full Measure (a book whose theme is all about honoring the sacrifices of the military) and The Romulan War: Beneath the Raptor's Wing.

My only problem is that I don't think the MACOs would still be around as an organization in the 24th Century, except maybe as local United Earth defense forces.
