The Task Force Operations UI

Task Force Operations make up most of Star Trek Online's multiplayer content. Task Force Operations are missions that require five (or more for certain queues) players to complete objectives in order to a complete the mission. Task Force Operations reward Refined dilithium icon.png Dilithium Ore, and many reward Fleet Marks Marks.

They can be accessed by clicking the PvE Task Force Operations button on the bottom of the navigation menu or by clicking the PvE thumbnail in the Mission Journal.

Prior to Season Fifteen: Age of Discovery, Task Force Operations were referred to as PvE Queues.

Queue Menu[edit | edit source]

The Queue Menu is the main interface for Task Force Operations. It allows you to queue for the various Task Force Operations in the game, or queue for a Random Task Force Operation.

The feature was originally introduced with Season Four: Crossfire as a way to find other players to join in for fleet actions. In Season Seven: New Romulus, the interface for the queue menu was updated and expanded to include Special Task Force missions and PvE group events.[1] In Season Thirteen: Escalation, the Queue Menu received a revamp, including a complete visual overhaul.[2] In Season Fifteen: Age of Discovery, it received further adjustments, including the addition of Random Task Force Operations.

Mission types and rewards[edit | edit source]

The Task Force Operation offers group content of two different basic types: "Fleet actions" and "Events/STFs" (not to be confused with Calendar events). Contrary to the name, players involved in a fleet action do not have to be part of the same fleet or of any fleet at all. Events taking place around a fleet starbase, however, can only be accessed if the player is in a fleet.

Both, fleet actions as well as events, may either be ground or space combat missions involving 5, 10 or up to 20 players (see PvE queue table), but differ in their reward structure.

Fleet actions[edit | edit source]

Fleet actions are group missions, at the end of which each player is rewarded Dilithium Dilithium Ore icon.png (480 for space fleet actions, 640 for ground). Players who have contributed the most (e.g., most damage dealt/taken) are also rewarded with items. Finishing in first place gets a random Very Rare item (as well as the accolade and trophy, if not already obtained), second and third place gets a random Rare item, and all other players get a random Uncommon item.

There is a daily mission for a different fleet action each day (every 20 hours). It rewards 960 dilithium Dilithium Ore icon.png and 50 Fleet Marks Fleet Marks and can be obtained from Lieutenant B'Mera for Klingon players and Admiral Grigori Yanishev for Federation players.

Events & STFs[edit | edit source]

"Event"-type group missions (not to be confused with calendar events) and Special Task Force (STF) Borg-specific missions are group missions (usually with a normal, advanced and an elite version) rewarding fleet marks Fleet Marks and/or reputation marks for one or more specific factions as well as dilithium Dilithium Ore icon.png (480 for normal; 720 for advanced; 1440 for elite).

Featured Task Force Operation[edit | edit source]

Featured TFOs are a 3 week event format launching in November 2018 to replace Featured episodes. The first one is planned to be “Battle at the Binary Stars”. It is intended that the event will be released, then possible be added as a smaller, standard TFO. The possibility of an event returning is dependent on the reception of the FTFO.[3]

Queues[edit | edit source]

Public Task Force Operations[edit | edit source]

Public Task Force Operations allow you to join public matchmaking for a specified queue. Upon reaching the required player count, it will give you a confirmation message. Once all teammates confirm, the mission will be launched.

Random Task Force Operations[edit | edit source]

Randomized Task Force Operations are a feature added with Season Fifteen: Age of Discovery. It allows you to queue for a random Task Force Operation with addition rewards on top of the standard queue rewards.

After completing a random TFO, you will receive a reward box containing dilithium and a choice of marks. The rarity is random, with the difficulty determining whether you get Normal or Advanced boxes. Advanced boxes give 40% more marks and dilithium.

Most queues are available in the system, with the following exclusions:

Private Task Force Operations[edit | edit source]

Private queue UI

Private queues can be created that can hold up to four teams of 5 (20 players) and requires five players to start. To do so, click the Create Private tab and under PvE, choose a queue of any difficulty. Press Start Private Queue to create an instance.

Certain queues require a certain level to be unlocked and cannot be played below that level. The queues can also be sorted based on ground, space, public private, unlocked, and locked.
