Under the normal circumstances of most Klingon vessels, the Marine Commander would remain frozen in suspended animation until such time as the ship's CO deemed it necessary to rouse the Marines. Then, the Marine CO would be the first one
However, since, in reality, there is no ship and no cryo freeze, the Marine CO, on this ship, holds a position over the marines, similar to the 1st Officer's position, over the naval personnel. Marines most often are used either as security or to augment regular security personnel.
Although the Captain's word is law aboard the ship, common courtesy demands that all use of Marine personnel is cleared through the Marine Commander. The Marine CO is responsible for all Marine actions aboard the ship.
