The Special Tactics and Rescue Squad (or S.T.A.R.S.) was an elite team within the Raccoon City Police Department.[1]


S.T.A.R.S. suffered near-total annihilation during the zombie outbreak in 2002. Grouping together with specialist weapons, many S.T.A.R.S. members took the fight against the zombies exceptionally well compared to civilians. However, an experimental Umbrella B.O.W. named "Nemesis" was programmed with orders to wipe them out under the implication of potential threats to Umbrella.

The majority of S.T.A.R.S. members set up base over a small store, where a sharpshooter kept watch with a sniper rifle. The Nemesis attacked this base with a rocket launcher and rail gun, destroying the building and killing its inhabitants with the exception of a civilian.
