The STARFLEET Special Operations is a Department of STARFLEET International, the International Star Trek Fan Association.  We are part of the STARFLEET Holodeck program, which is under the command of the Vice Commander of STARFLEET.

Our goal is to provide each member of STARFLEET with a one on one experience, by allowing him to take on the persona of an elite STARFLEET Special Operations soldier.  He can do this by taking STARFLEET Academy or STARFLEET Marine Corp Academy tests that allow him to follow one of five career tracks within the SFSO.  He can either be a STARFLEET Ranger, STARFLEET SEAL, STARFLEET Reconnaissance Specialist, STARFLEET Intelligence Officer, or try his hand at becoming a Military Assault Command Operation operative.

The STARFLEET Special Operations Command was launched in 2001, by Captain S. Adam Day with the desire to create a Joint Forces Department that was loosely based upon the various armies of the Real World, while not being as rule bound as the STARFLEET Marine Corp.  Captain Day was Director of the SFSO until he stepped down in September of 2003.  During his time in command, the infamous Section 31 was created as an elite unit (for the purposes of pranking STARFLEET members at Regional Conferences and International Summits.)  It is important to note that Section 31 was disbanded and removed from the SFSO, due to some pranks that were done in poor taste.

Since then, STARFLEET Special Operations has had seven Directors:

  • September 2003 – March 2005
    Brigadier General Dennis Rayburn
  • March 2005 – November 2005
    Brigadier Deb Kern
  • November 2005 – January 2006
    Rear Admiral David James
  • January 2006 – January 2008
    Colonel Howard Knapp
  • January 2008-January 2009
    Brigadier Jack Kern
  • January 2009 – June 2013
    Fleet Captain Joseph White
  • June 2013 – June 2013
    Captain Erik Roberts
  • June 2013 – Present
    Captain TJ Allen
