There are a lot of options for Space Marine Command Squads. How do people use these squads? What size squad? Give them terminator honors? What heavy weapons? Do you max out the Specialists or are some not worth it? Do you give them infilitrate or any of the other skills?

I've honestly never found the need for a Command Squad. Typically they're used to compliment a HQ char, and I don't like spending that many points (250-300pts) on a secondary HQ slot.

I am tending to pick a Terminator Command Squad instead, since it kind of lets you have some terminators without using an Elite slot. However I am curious to know if I'm missing out on something by not employing a non-termi command squad.

I use one when I drop pod my army as it allows the boss to enter via the pod. They also get you a second cheap plasma gun.

That's a lot of points. How many is it precisely?

veteran sqds are pointless. never see anyone use them.
command sqds are good but a big point sink. Did a Calgar cmmnd sqd with attatched chaplain,vet sgt,bearer,apothecary ,co. champion and 4 sm all decked out in a rhino for
about 1,000 pts. Just to see how insane that would be.
best way to get extra termie sqd in w/o it being elite.

Command squads look cool but the consensus seems to be that they are not efficient to take. That is a shame. GW should improve them, make them more worth considering.
