Cryptic calls these zones "iPvP" -- indirect PvP aka PvPvE.
Currently there are only 2 -- one Fed vs Klingon and one Klingon vs Klingon (it seems to just put you on a random team).
According to their engineering notes they are opening more zones like this soon. In beta there was a ground combat version of Borg Hunt in the Ohta system in the neutral zone. I really enjoyed hunting the Feds down in there and am very much looking forward to it opening back up.
And yeah, it's a "war zone" situated in the neutral zone. You consent to PvP when you zone in there. I have no sympathy for complainers in there. A lot of times the Feds give up on doing the mission and just fight us, in fact.
Ideally you can ensure that the Klingons win the mission by having some people fight the Feds to distract them but since it doesn't matter who wins, there's not a lot of point to it (except personal entertainment).
