Default Would You Rather Be A ...

Regular Starfleet officer or enlistee, or an officer or enlistee in the Starfleet Marines? Starfleet Marines are a very significant part of the Star Trek expanded universe.

I don't think we get to see Trek Marines much in any form except in Star Trek: Enterprise. However, they do seem to be more on the a**-whuppin' side of things than most Starfleet personnel. Sort of "shoot first and ask questions never" type of people.

You are aware the MACOS became Starfleet security? To the best of my knowlege, in all Trek there were never any Marine branch. Starflet Security's job is to do all the "dirty work."

I'd have thought the dirty work would have fallen to the poor sods from Engineering on waste extraction duty.
