The STAAR project was allegedly launched in 1958 as a reponse to the possible threat of an alien (as in extraterrestrial) invasion.
STAAR stands for Strategic Tactical Advanced Alien Response. An extremely secret and extremely advanced elite strike force was created to deal with the possible threat of an alien invasion. It consists of top experts (two per domain) in the fields of advanced computing, astrophysics, biology, cryptography, communications, diplomacy, explosives, hazardous materials, and intelligence. The team is also rigorously cross-trained in military combat skills (including hand-to-hand combat and small and heavy weapons usage) and survival.
