Star Trek Expanded Universe

Task Force Eight was a United Federation of Planets Starfleet task force deployed during the Kelvan War in 2285 and then in the 24th century.

Most of the vessels assigned to Task Force Eight never saw action during the war as they were defending the Federation-Orion border. (Orion Press: In Harm's Way)
