Cadet Training Squadron 47, also known as Red Squadron or Red Squad was an elite group of Cadets at Star Fleet Academy. Red Squad members received special classes and advanced field training, some members even being granted command of their own Runabouts or Shuttlecraft while still attending the Academy.

Early History

In 2372, the program was a relatively new idea. A group of Red Squad cadets, including Riley Shepard, disabled the global power distribution center in Lisbon, allowing "Admiral Leyton" to launch his coup attempt.

Shortly before the outbreak of the Dominion War, Red Squad was assigned to crew the Defiant-class USS Valiant, NCC-74210, on a training mission to circumnavigate the Federation. Following the outbreak of war, the Valiant found itself trapped behind enemy lines. When the ranking officers were killed, Cadet Tim Watters assumed command, and kept the ship behind enemy lines. For eight months, Red Squad carried out the missions assigned to the Valiant, until, on Stardate 51825 (old calendar), the Valiant engaged a Jem'Hadar Battleship prototype. The ship was lost, with only three survivors; one Red Squad cadet among them, Dorian Collins.

Later History

Red Squad would continue to exist as an elite unit, albeit with less independence than initially intended, into the 2420s decade. Following the Attack on the Borg Megasphere, Tactical-track members of Red Squad with high marks in piloting were trained in the operation of the Valkyrie Class Attack Fighter.
