Motto: Valeria Victri (Valiant and Victorious)

The Starfleet Marines assigned to the USS Valhalla, known as the "Sanguinem Corvus" (Blood Ravens), belong to the 187th Raider Company of Starfleet's Marine Special Operations Commands' (MARSOC) 3rd Marine Raider Battalion. The Company is comprised of 4 Platoons and a command team totaling 125 men and women. Due to circumstances surrounding the 'Event' and the resulting manpower shortage, this is considered an 'under strength' company The Company is commanded by a Marine Captain and his Executive Officer a 1st Lieutenant. Most other command positions have been delegated to Senior Non-Commissioned Officers since all available officers have been spread out between other Marine Units.

In addition to normal Marine operations, the First Platoon has been trained for special operations missions including but not limited to: 

  • Direct action missions. (Covert raids, Direct Assaults, etc)
  • Special reconnaissance and information gathering missions.
  • Counter-terrorism operations.
  • Hostage rescue and Search and rescue missions.
  • Sabotage.
  • Other unconventional operations.

They are highly trained, having undergone a long selection and training process, including but not limited to: 

  • Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape (SERE) training.
  • Advanced Combat Marksmanship
  • Zero-G Operations and Demolitions.

The Second and Third Platoons are primarily assigned to more conventional duties and missions but are able to supplement the First Platoon when necessary. They also work closely with ships security as the need arises.

The Fourth Platoon (along with the Command team) is primarily responsible for supporting the activities of the other three platoons, this includes staffing the CIC, filling any logistical needs, etc. They are also tasked with the security of all Marine facilities aboard ship and can supplement the ship's security personnel should the ship be boarded.
