Special Task Force
Special Task Force missions (abbreviated to STF) are 5-player group missions accessible from the PvE Queue in a "Normal" (level 44) and "Elite" (level 50) form. Enemies fought in STFs range between levels 45 and 53.
Upon completion, STFs reward 480/960 dilithium ore (normal/elite) as well as Omega Marks (+25% for bonus objective) for Task Force Omega-projects in the personal Reputation System. Completing an elite STF also rewards at least one [Borg Neural Processor] which are needed to unlock Mark XII items from the Task Force Omega faction).

- Content Designer "Gozer" described the difficulty ranges of the STFs remastered for Season 5 such as pre-Season 5 being "7 out of 10", the new Normal missions as "5 out of 10" and the new Elite missions as "10 out of 10".
- Prior to Season 5 Special Task Force missions were expected to require between one and two hours of playtime. Mission difficulty was relatively high; an experienced group would be challenged but not excessively so. Each episode was a self contained unit, comprising both ground combat and space combat sections. Each Borg STF mission awarded one of three components of the four-piece Borg Equipment set.
