M.A.C.O. Detachment

The M.A.C.O. detachment is a team of twenty people of various specializations and qualifications split between four four-man assualt operation teams with a fifth group of four support specialists that can be added as required or used as a fire team.

Modelled on small unit tactics common to tactical-police/paramilitary/special-operations units, MACO teams excel in targeted strikes, reconnoscience, protection of key personnel, rescue, and hazardous enviroment training. 

All MACOs are EVA, CQB, and Weapons Trained and can function very well in assualt roles and capturing starships/outposts, and can stand in for bridge crew when needed, though typically only for basic operations and general functions. All MACOs are also trained to augment the Armoury and Engineering departments damage control and repair activities in a pinch, and are trained to rescue trapped crewmembers from damaged areas and provide onsite first aid and care until they can be evac’d back to sickbay or at least into the care of a medical department member.
