Task Force Hydra is an RP Fleet centered around the idea of a battle group, similar to Battle Group Omega, whose function is primarily special operations and deep space exploration support. Hydra does not have a single base of operations, rather our base of operations will change depending on how the game unfolds essentially following the hotspots within Star Trek Online. From a roleplay perspective this means our surroundings will change based upon where Starfleet Command has seen fit to dispatch Hydra. We have also adopted the Starfleet Marine concept and will offer this type of roleplay through the 10th Marine Expeditionary Unit currently attached to Hydra.
At Hydra we place a high value on fleet camaraderie. Our membership ranges from those who are considered light RPers to those who may be considered hardcore RPers, with the fleet outlook focusing on moderate to heavy RP overall. We are not draconian in our RP requirements as we take part in optional OOC interaction between fleet members so that we may get to know one another better. Fleet roleplaying takes place in local chat in various locales, on our forums, as well as in Team chats and a special RP channel. We participate in PvE such as STFs, alt leveling, and will take part in PvP on some occasions. We also have an interest in participating in joint-roleplays between our members and those of other fleets, as well as full interfleet roleplay events; contact us if this is something your fleet might be interested in.
Hydra was conceptualized and is lead by members who believe in well written, quality Star Trek roleplay and are familiar with 90%+ of the IP including television series, movies, and books. We are fun, friendly, and enjoy meeting players who enjoy roleplay in it's various forms.

An Except from "Academy Tales", a RP by Admirals Shephard and Darl soon to be continued on the Hydra RP forums. The story visits Jon and Bren in their second year at Starfleet Academy where, while on a training mission, the science team their training vessel is assigned to take supplies and fresh personnel to goes missing.
First Imar’Retan inhaled sharply, taking a deep breath of air. It smelled burnt, like ozone and wounded flesh. Having overcome so much since their fighter had been downed here back in the Dominion War he could smell the sweet scent of victory, of true freedom, upon them. They had been watching the team for days after discovering them, on accident, when a hunting patrol of young had gotten turned around and almost stumbled into their research camp. Their Voorta would have tried to negotiate. Luckily he had been killed in the crash, at least that was Imar’Retan’s official story.
He had no interest in changing it.
“First! They are receiving hails from a Federation starship in orbit.” His Seventh shouted to him. Imar’Retan nodded, a feral grin have spread upon his face.
“Good, these Federation rats have saved us the trouble of having to call anyone here. It is likely they will send down a search party, get all of these—” He motioned to the survivors who had surrendered, either willingly for by being knocked unconscious, around them. “back to our camp. I don’t want anyone left here who can warn that crew when it comes looking for them, and they will come looking for them. Plus, I suspect that at some point they’ll make excellent currency for bartering should Starfleet track us down.”
The Seventh and the Jem’Hadar soldiers under him began shoving wounded into the forest, forcing them to carry those who could not walk. The First looked up at the sky with a sharp toothed grin, the storms appeared to be intensifying. As a fast moving speck appeared in the distance, a Federation runabout, he suspected, he hurried into the forest confident that the storm had knocked out their sensors.
