The 88th Squadron also known as the "Lost Squad" was a military unit of the UEE Navy.

History

The 88th Squadron is commonly known for their role in the Fall of Caliban in 2871, where the squadron received devastating losses protecting civilians trying to flee the system from the attacking Vanduul fleet. The squadron was subsequently retired after the battle, wich led to the moniker Lost Squad.[1]

Film adaptation

In 2946 a holovid series based on this event featured the unit's pilots prominently and also caused some controversy over their portrayal.[2][3]
