Alphabet Squadron was a New Republic starfighter squadron tasked by General Hera Syndulla with tracking down Shadow Wing, a lethal force of TIE fighters.


During the Galactic Civil War between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance, following the decisive Battle of Endor which resulted in the death of Emperor Palpatine and the destruction of the Death Star II, Yrica Quell and four other pilots of the New Republic, the successor government of the Rebel Alliance, were selected to join the newly formed Alphabet Squadron.[1]

Alphabet Squadron was tasked by General Hera Syndulla to track down and destroy Shadow Wing, a mysterious and lethal force of TIE fighters who were exacting vengeance.[1]


Alphabet Squadron consisted of five pilots, each flying a different starfighter,[1] with Quell, an Imperial defector, flying an X-wing starfighter.[3]
