I'm currently writing a story about a young Marine of my own creation.

One question: Should I touch upon his time as a scout, or should I make that the basis of my story?
Sorry to say, but that sounds like the same question. :biggrin:

Not to sound obvious, but you are giving the idea of writing a story about a space marine who starts off as a scout. Am I correct?

No, there's a difference between "basis" and "touch upon".

Depends. Have a look at the Space Wolf series and see which style you prefer. Either the later (3-4), or early (1) novels.

well it depends on how your going to write the story, are we watching along side the Marine or looking back at the events from his or someone else popective?

If we are watching the timeline as it unfolds then id say with a resounding yes, don't do it all but you'll have to do it.

If your looking back you wont have to as it can be done as if your looking at the important actions leading up to the main event, however saying that id still say that you'd need to attleast touch up on a few things.
