Special forces is a generic term for any elite military units that conduct specialized operations such as reconnaissance, unconventional warfare, and counter-terrorism actions.

Most military powers possess such units. A few notable exceptions are the Klingon Empire and the Dominion. The soldiers from both consider themselves to be "elite" warriors. (LUG RPG: The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

During the ground invasion of the Chin'toka system Special forces units were among the first forces to be deployed to the planets. Some units deployed from their shuttlecraft while in flight and glided down to the surface. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Semper Fidelis")
