NLM Marines1

NLM Marines after they cleared out the Greenville Camps of P.A.N.L. dissidents, November 3006

Formed in 3001 upon the death of Earth, the New Luna Militia was tasked with keeping order on New Luna, and given a paltry armed Chandler and 150 Lunite Militiamen with which to do so. In 3003, they gained full autonomy during the Moebius Effect, gaining hundreds of thousands of refugees to watch over. It has since grown to a force of almost 5000 and a little over half a dozen spacefaring vessels, with another dozen seafaring vessels under its command as well. Their flagship is the NLM Franklin, a Wolf Class Frigate. Recently the base of Fleet Operations is slowly being transferred to Hancock Station.

The New Luna militia is split into four branches: Land, Sea, Air/Space, and Support. Many of these branches serve double duty in a civilian function. For example, several branches of the Marines serve as a police force, and several branches of Engineering serve in Utility Service functions.


The Militia uses the same rank structure for army, naval and marine forces.

1st Marine Battalion "Hancock's Heroes"Edit

Approximately 300 marines, made up of three companies (Approx 100 marines each), operate from Hancock Station. Jokingly at first, they earned the moniker "Hancock's Heroes," a sarcastic title for a ragtag and poorly trained group. However, in the past year, hard training under a series of veteran instructors and repeated tests in combat situations suggest that perhaps First Battalion is worthy of its nickname.

Each company is itself made up of three platoons (Approx 33 marines).

PC Marines are attached to 3rd Company, 1st Platoon.
