Squadron 88 (The Lost Squad)

The 88th Logistic Support Squadron (Squadron 88, "the Lost Squad") is an inactive United Empire of Earth Navy (UEEN) unit. Founded in SEY 2608, the squadron served as a logistics and operations support squadron to various units, bases, and capital ships until its final posting to the Caliban system in 2792. The 88th became publicly revered due to their defense of the Caliban system against a massed Vanduul invasion for two days without reinforcements, allowing millions of civilians to escape (Fall of Caliban, 2884). A single unnamed pilot survived the prolonged assault. All others were killed in action. In honor of their sacrifice, the UEE Navy officially retired the 88th in 2885. Their motto was "Stand and Deliver."
