Unlike M.A.C.O., which was primarily used for ground combat during war, Task Force Delta teams are typically attached to ships with a history or high probability of combat. Ships which are intended for scientific or exploratory missions may or may not have TFD teams depending on their mission parameters.
While aboard a ship, TFD teams are considered separate entities from ship's security, and may operate independently or in concert depending on circumstances. When deployed separately, those teams will report to a ship's Strategic Operations Officer. If a SOO is not present, and for all matters related to ship's security, TFD teams will report directly to that ship's Chief Security Officer.
(Editors note: TFD exists solely within the 22nd, and takes the place of MACO within our continuity. For RP interactions with characters outside the 22nd, all references to Task Force Delta can be replaced with MACO.)
