Starfleet Intelligence, also known as Starfleet Intelligence Command, is the fact-finding, threat-assessing, covert operations division of the United Federation of Planets and Starfleet.



One of the positions within SI included the Director of Covert Ops. (VOY novel: The Farther Shore)

The rogue intelligence division known by some as Section 31 operated separately from Starfleet Intelligence and had no official connection to SI. (DS9 episode: "Inquisition", et al)

Main article: Starfleet Intelligence organization.




Starfleet Intelligence was originally a division of Earth Starfleet. In 2154, they discovered the Klingon Empire had established a genetic research facility on Qu'Vat colony. (ENT episode: "Divergence")

23rd Century

Due to the strategic location and continued growth of the Triangle, the Triangle Sector Group is formed in 2260. (FASA RPG: Star Trek IV Sourcebook Update.)

In the year 2263, after the discovery of the meta-genome in the Taurus Reach by the USS Constellation, Starfleet Intelligence initiated Operation Vanguard in order to study the meta-genome and find information about the race that had created it. This project was based on the newly-constructed Starbase 47 (aka Vanguard Station), in a secret area of the station called "the Vault." Starfleet Intelligence assigned agent Lieutenant Commander T'Prynn to Vanguard in order to oversee this classified project. In order to keep information about this project secret, T'Prynn orchestrated the public disgrace of Federation News Service reporter Tim Pennington. (VAN novels: Harbinger, Summon the Thunder)

When the Klingon Empire and Romulan Star Empire unexpectedly formed an alliance in 2267, SI's entire Romulan Activities Unit was replaced. (FASA reference: Star Trek IV Sourcebook Update) They reported in 2268 that, as a result of this alliance, Romulans were now using Klingon starship designs. At the same time, they also enlisted Captain James T. Kirk to steal a prototype for an advanced Romulan cloaking device. (TOS episode: "The Enterprise Incident")

24th Century

In the year 2311 Starfleet Intelligence, acting out a plan devised by Captain John Harriman of the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-B), averted a certain war with the Romulan Star Empire by orchestrating the events that became known as the Tomed Incident. (TLE novel: Serpents Among the Ruins).

From the years 2328 to 2344, Starfleet Intelligence kept a close watch on the unstable situation on the planet Raknal IV near the Betreka Nebula, where the Klingon Empire and the Cardassian Union were attempting to develop separate continents of the planet according to terms developed by Federation Ambassador Curzon Dax.

The Betreka Nebula Incident, as it came to be known, finally came to a close after Dax and S.I. operative Elias Vaughn discovered the truth about the legendary Klingon vessel known as Ch'gran. The vessels remains were found on the planet, and the Klingons wanted them back. After delivering the truth about the vessels history to the new Klingon Chancellor, K'mpec, K'mpec decided to withdraw from Raknal, thus ending the Betreka Nebula Incident. (TLE novel: The Art of the Impossible)

In 2347, T'Prynn, Vaughn, and S.I. operative Ruriko Tenmei facilitated the defection of Cardassian scientist Crem Veruda, who had developed an advanced Artificial Intelligence for Cardassia. (DS9 novel: Lesser Evil)

In 2360, Chief of Starfleet Intelligence Admiral Uhura authorized a covert mission to Romulan space to gather intelligence on the Romulan disease known as the gnawing. (TLE novel: Catalyst of Sorrows)

In 2369, a team from Starfleet Intelligence joined similar teams from Starfleet Research and Development and the Starfleet Corps of Engineers in boarding Deep Space 9 after the Cardassians had left the space station. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Technical Manual)

By the year 2371, SI suspected that there was Borg activity on New Titan in the Brenna Covington]]. Thus, they dispatched their elite anti-Borg intelligence unit and recruited Captain Jean-Luc Picard as well as Doctor Beverly Crusher to aid the team. Starfleet Intelligence was also responsible for the retrieval operation on Romulus in order to recover Ambassador Spock on Romulus so that he could attend the funeral of Captain James Tiberius Kirk. (TOS novel: The Return)

After the return of the USS Voyager from the Delta Quadrant in 2378, SI Director of Covert Ops Brenna Covington was involved in a secret conspiracy which involved the deployment of a Borg virus that was slowly assimilating the populace. This was part of plot by Covington to use the Borg Royal Protocol to establish herself as a new Borg Queen. Her plans were later discovered by the crew of the USS Voyager who ended her plans of dominating a new Borg race. (VOY novel: The Farther Shore)

Starfleet Intelligence by the year 2387 recommended the Federation keep a close watch on the activities of the Orion Syndicate which led to a crackdown on their operations. Whilst it was initially successful in curbing their threat, the death of their leader Ramius which SI later determined led to the rise of Melani Di'an who controlled 30% of the Syndicate's operations. Analysts determined that her dominance in the Syndicate was the first time in over twenty years that an Orion had taken control of the organization and led some to believe that the race may return as an interstellar power.

Starfleet Intelligence is a division of the Federation Starfleet, tasked with gathering and analyzing information foreign powers in the galaxy and launching covert operations.

(The rogue intelligence division known by some as Section 31 operated separately from Starfleet Intelligence and had no official connection to SI.)


23rd century

Operation Blackjack, coordinated out of Shadowstar Station, took place from 2288-89. It was considered successful, despite the loss of 60% of the personnel assigned to it. (Star Trek: Shadowstar Station: Operation Blackjack)

Operation Dhalang was a Starfleet Intelligence operation behind Romulan lines in 2294. (Star Trek: Shadowstar Station: "Dhalang")

24th century

In 2381, Starfleet Intelligence agent Commander Peter Bradford became acquainted with Captain Benjamin Kelsoe and the crew of the USS Pioneer during the capture and interrogation of the So'ja operatives who attempted to assassinate President Korvin Mot. Later, in 2382, he was captured by Tyson Calok and taken back to a Coalition prison on Ka'al. (Star Trek: Pioneer (STP): "In Custody", "The Boolran Eye, Part 3")

Dominion War

A member from Starfleet Intelligence was present during the capture of the Muir Changeling prior to the Battle of Guyra in early 2374. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Over the Horizon")

In late 2374, Special Operations Command captured a Jem'Hadar dreadnought for Starfleet Intelligence to go over. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "A Dreadful Operation")

Following the USS Swiftfire's encounter with the Vendoth in the Badlands they were debriefed by Starfleet Intelligence. The ship's sensor logs, retrieved bodies and wreckage of Vendoth origin was confiscated by Intelligence. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Into the Fire")

Lyran Starfleet

Just like its Federation counterpart, the Lyran Star Empire maintained a military intelligence organization. This is where most non-Lyrans in the Lyran Starfleet that are not in Lyran Starfleet Medical get assigned to, although some Lyrans serve in LSI on occasion. This was supposedly to give an appearance of overture towards subject species among Lyrans. (RIS Bouteina)
