In Star Trek: Banshee Squadron, the term "squadron" is used very loosely, inaccurately, and interchangeably with the term "wing". A squadron or wing is simply a group of starfighters, usually numbering five, under the command of a Wing Commander.
In Star Trek: False Vacuum, the term "squadron" designates a group of fighters or other small craft that numbered from five to twelve, depending on the combat ability of the craft used. Generally, the more powerful the craft used, the less craft in a fighter squadron.
