Federation Merchant Marines

I'm sure you're wondering what exactly FMM stands for. FMM stands for Federation Merchant Marines. So you ask, what IS the FMM? The FMM is the cargo type group of the Federation. FMM goes around the planets and picks up supplies needed by other planets or people. It is also an inter-galactical trading for the Federation. You get to explore the universe when you join the FMM. It is great for those people who want to be non-militaristic or non-Starfleet but dont want to work in the Government. The FMM is NOT Starfleet operated. It works right from the Presidents orders. FMM may also be ordered by the Chancellor of the Exchequer (see primer fed leaders for those people).

I know you are saying WOW! I wanna join! Well in order to do that, you must contact the the Fleet Commander. To see who is the current Fleet Commander type primer fmm coc. You may page him/her if he/she is on line but if not @mail them.
