Does Starfleet have a special unit to carry out black ops missions, counter terrorism, hostage rescue, and special reconnaissance?

I don't see Section 31 doing missions like this, S31 seems more like Jason Bourne or Sam Fisher. Usually S31 is a single operative gathering information or carrying out assassinations.

This seems a bit like the Rapid Response Team from The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon:

The Rapid Response Team had a range of functions. During peacetime they were involved in search and rescues, counter-terrorism, disaster relief and special law enforcement. During times of conflict they were tasked with missions behind enemy lines such as reconnaissance, sabotage and deception missions.

    Wow, didn't know they had a RRT. I wonder if any novels that feature them.

    @QueenSvetlana: It may not have existed outside of the pages of the RPG, with this supplement have not been officially published due to the RPG license switching hands.
