Imperial Marine Template

Based on the BOARDER template (Pirates and Privateers)
I did give the template quite a veritile skill selection and for the reason of how marines operate
they are much more than ship security and even borading forces and most often have quite significate
ground assault capabilities.
Due to the fairly limited number of marines they have been trained to fill a variety of roles, including
scout and reconnaissance operations as well as sustained expedetionary operations as well as operating
starfighters and capital ships.

I like it, seems like a good template stats-wise

Personally, I'd probably give them Capital Ship Repair for fixing any damage
that may have been caused by their boarding actions, but that's just me.

Other than that, thumbs up.

I'm not sure if you're basing this on anything in real life, but, I might swap the strength and dex attributes (letting strength be the highest).

I know that the US Marines (as a collective) have troops that do all of those things on the skills list (and, of course, there aren't enough skill dice to actually place into all those skills), but a basic marine does not (could not) have all those skills.

I would suggest that there are a few core skills common to something like a marine and those would be:

DEX
Blaster
Dodge
Grenade
Brawling Parry
Vehicle Blasters

KNOW
Intimidation
Tactics
Willpower

MECH
Communications
Repulsorlift Operation
Sensors

PER
Command (maybe)
Search
Sneak (remember, the "hide" skill is for hiding objects, not hiding oneself, that is covered by sneak).

STR
Brawling
Climbing/Jumping
Lifting
Stamina
Swimming (especially compared to other grunt-type troops)

TECH
Blaster Repair
First Aid

Any skills beyond this would come from character background or specialized military training.

Your background and personality sections are nicely worded. Paints a great picture. Cool

AWESOME!

indeed the huge list of skills I had was intended for a pick according to concept and training, but yes this looks amazingly better
