The Starfleet Joint Special Operations Command (SJSOC) is a component command of Starfleet Special Operations Command (SSOC) and is charged to study special operations requirements and techniques to ensure interoperability and equipment standardization, plan and conduct special operations exercises and training, and develop Joint Special Operations Tactics.
It is located at Fort McDill in Flordia, USA.
In 2407, Commodore Jason Roberts, the Commanding Officer of First Force and Lieutenant General Paul Conway, the newly appointed Chief of Starfleet Intelligence realized that by pooling the resources and intelligence of First Force and the Starfleet Intelligence Agency the success of missions and special operations within the United Federation of Planets would become radically streamlined and more effective.
With subtle persuasion they managed to bring in then-Brigadier General Nrrlon and the Starfleet Marine Corps to complete the Special Operations Trinity which they named the Combined Special Operations Directorate (CSOD).
Brigadier General Nrrlon provided them with Fort MacDill in Florida on Earth as the base of operations and once furnished by First Force and kitted out with Starfleet Intelligence's special computers Fort MacDill was staffed by members of all three operational groups and jointly ran by specially appointed delegates of each branch commander.
The unit was renamed the Starfleet Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC).
The mission objective of the JSOC is to promote unity within the field of Special Operations to achieve greater cohesion and effectiveness by the means of shared resources. Information is passed from the separate branches to Fort MacDill and is then distributed in a special communications package via JSOC relays to each branch commander (and forwarded internally to the delegate liaison officers). This combined with regular meetings and a more open-door system of information gathering allows the ease of sharing information and resources for the completion of special operations.
With each branch retaining its own independence it now has another dimension added to it, that of cohesion and coherence with the other branches of the Trinity. With the CSOD Directive now in place it means that the Federation gets only the best of the best when concerning special operations.

Starfleet Marine Corps
Unique among all other divisions, the Starfleet Marines acts as a joined entity within Starfleet. All marines, officers and enlisted, are not only trained on Earth but in the Alpha Centauri in Beta Quadrant.
The Marines represents the practical reality that, despite the vaunted ideals of the Federation which Starfleet embodies, they exist in a continuously hostile and aggressive galaxy and require a dedicated military arm to deter hostile actions and provide a dedicated force of soldiers to augment Starfleet's otherwise defensively-oriented military operations. The Commandant of the Marine Corps is responsible for directing the divisions and major Marine assets throughout the Fleet and coordinating with the Directors Strategic Operations & Starfleet Intelligence in ensuring the continued defense of the Federation.
