Spectre Squad is the Strategic Services Agency's* elite, top-secret special operations unit. Missions carried out by this unit are generally black or invisible, but its operatives do not vanish like those in black ops task forces or fleets. Spectre Squad is much like any other special operations unit, with the exception that all missions are classified. Working for Spectre Squad is highly dangerous with little reward. Most Spectre operatives are chosen because they enjoy secretive work and are highly motivated to succeed.
Spectre Squad is, for all intents and purposes, the Federation's secret weapon. Often deployed behind enemy lines or in hostile territory, the unit is well known for getting the job done and escaping with little notice. Despite this notoriety and the fact that Spectre operatives don't vanish completely from sight, the Federation often maintains that Spectre Squad does not exist.
Spectre Squad's mission is a simple one: safeguard the Federation and her secrets at all costs. The mission must always come first; all other concerns are secondary. The work is dangerous, and often unethical or "dirty", but the job must be done in order to protect the Federation from threats that the Federation Council and Starfleet Command don't see... or can't protect against.
Positions aboard Spectre Squad's transport ship, the Revenant are also available, as well as positions within the MACO team aboard the ship.
