Banshee Squadron was a Starfleet starfighter squadron based on planet Serenity in the New Canada system in the latter half of the 24th century. (Star Trek: Banshee Squadron)


Banshee Squadron was formed in 2370 as a five-plane unit under the leadership of Wing Commander Jasmine Phoenix. They saw little action until the outbreak of the Dominion War. In late 2373 while on a mission deep inside Cardassian-held territory, they were ambushed by a large group of Jem'Hadar fighters, and Commander Phoenix was apparently killed in action. Lieutenant Commander Lee Carter assumed command.

The squadron was briefly disbanded in 2379, but was reactivated in 2380 by Starfleet Research and Development and assigned as escort to the deep space survey ship USS Knight, where they participated in the Kelvan Incursion. In 2381, the Banshees were reassigned to Starbase 901 on the far side of the Briar Patch. There they participated in both Mulluran Wars.

In 2383, the Banshees thwarted an attempt by the arch-criminal Vincent Kelly to destroy the New Canada system. They discovered the Smelly Jelly on the planetoid Nanuq, and a Jelly Brain on the planet Rostella IV. In June of that year, Captain Matthew Cross assumed the position of Mission Commander, though Lee Carter retained operational command of the squadron itself. Together, they crushed Vincent Kelly's pirate ring dealing in stolen human minds, discovered the Black Gate, an artificial wormhole to the other side of the known universe, prevented history from being twisted by the Sulliban, and discovered the sentient planet Gaia.

In November of 2383, Banshee Squadron was disbanded for the last time, and its remaining pilots reassigned.
