In the aftermath of the Dominion War, the Federation faces
uncertain times pervaded by a delicate peace hanging precariously from
galactic rafters still damaged from a crippling war. The Alpha
Quadrant, once rich in stability and political boundaries, has become
a dangerous cauldron of shifting allegiances and underground power
The USS Mercutio, with a crew cross-trained in intelligence
operations and special engagements, is Starfleet's response to the
changing tide. Produced by a merging of the ideals of Starfleet
Intelligence and the Special Operations division of Starfleet
Security, the Mercutio Unit serves the Federation as an elite
counterintelligence and anti-threat task force. As expected, her
missions in this capacity are highly classified.
Much of the time, the Mercutio carries the tasks and duties of a
typical Starfleet vessel: routine patrols, scientific surveys,
cartographical mapping, personnel and supply transport, and even
limited diplomatic dialogues. In fact, these "typical" missions are
organized and ordered by official Starfleet agencies and bureaus; they
are a matter of military record, and subject to judicial review or
commendation. The USS Mercutio is a Starfleet vessel, like all
others--at least as far as most of the Federation is concerned.
When the services of the Joint Operations Task Force are called
upon, however, the personnel of the Mercutio Unit face very different
missions, with very different consequences. Many of those missions
are difficult, and all are dangerous; the operatives must rely heavily
on their intelligence, tactical, and combat training--as well as the
cutting-edge technology they are expected to operate flawlessly. Most
of all, Joint Operatives must rely on their instincts, experience,
mental abilities, strategic knowledge, and cunning.
In a galaxy of espionage and interstellar intrigue, where
keeping the Federation safe has become a chess match played only by
the true masters, the Joint Operations Task Force has become a
top-secret power piece.
