Not sure how I feel about the MACOS becoming Starfleet Security (I'm still sticking with a 'Starfleet Marine Corps' idea - I've always viewed Security as exclusively shipbound security guards, not front line troops) but otherwise, it's great.
Well, we've always been shown the same security personnel handling groundside and shipside matters, so that's what I aimed toward. And I wanted to have some tie back to elements of ENT, and to keep Kimura around as part of the crew.
I still just see the redshirts of TOS as security guards, nothing more. A security guard is not the same thing as a soldier or marine. Expecting the redshirts - or, in this time frame, the 'grayshirts' - to also be troops would be like taking a guard from a bank vault and sending him to Afghanistan.
