The STARFLEET Strategic Operations Rangers, also known as Rangers, is a Special Operations Force (SOF), tasked with five primary missions: unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, special reconnaissance, direct action, and counter-terrorism. The first two emphasize language, cultural, and training skills in working with foreign troops. Other duties include combat search and rescue (CSAR), security assistance, peacekeeping, humanitarian assistance, humanitarian demining, counter-proliferation, and psychological operations; other components of the STARFLEET Strategic Operations activities may also specialize in these secondary areas. Many of their operational techniques are classified.
Due to the new STARFLEET Strategic Operations MTOE, Ranger Teams are longer required. Current existing Ranger Teams will continue to operate under the Tactical Operations Command until full implementation of the new MTOE takes effect.
No new Ranger Teams will be activated.
