The S.W.O.R.D. (Sentient World Observation and Response Department) is a branch of S.H.I.E.L.D. which deals with anything related to extraterrestrial threats and encounters.
Its main command spaceship is the Damocles, Kang the Conqueror's time flagship, S.H.I.E.L.D. had captured and acquired after Kang's invasion of Earth, plus the Kree warship they captured with a help of an alien techhead, Sydren.
S.W.O.R.D. was created to serve as the space branch of S.H.I.E.L.D. in defense of Earth space.
Welcome to the Kree Empire
S.W.O.R.D. first saw action when a Kree warpship led by Ronan the Accuser arrived on Earth to see if humanity is worthy to be part of the Kree Empire without being annihilated. S.W.O.R.D. sent Ms. Marvel and a squad of Mandroids to intercept them but were easily taken out by the Public Accuser himself.
