The Reconnaissance Teams (abbreviated as “RECON”), are one of the STARFLEET Strategic Operations forces that provide pertinent military intelligence to the combined combat elements of the STARFLEET/STARFLEET Marine air-ground task force, either supporting the subordinate infantry units of the STARFLEET Strategic Operations Rangers, SEALS, or MACOs.
They are fully capable of operating independently behind enemy lines conducting deep reconnaissance, direct action (DA), and other supportive arms deemed necessary to the STARFLEET task force. Using combined methods of space, heliborne and waterborne insertions and extractions in cohesion of conventional warfare, they are capable of performing unconventional special operations similar, or to the extent, to those of the STARFLEET Strategic Operations forces, e.g. Rangers and SEALS, although RECON’s missions and tasks do differ by a margin.
Due to the new STARFLEET Strategic Operations MTOE, Recon Teams are longer required. Current existing Recon Teams will continue to operate under the Intelligence Operations Command until full implementation of the new MTOE takes effect.
No new Recon Teams will be activated.
