‘Audax Omnia Perpeti’ – Squadron Motto

No. 77 Squadron, aka the Supernova Sevens, are one of the most famous fighter squadrons attached to Task Force Second Sabre. They are well known for their hatred of the Hirudin found sneaking around the Rimward Territories preying on the weak and vulnerable.

Their name originates from their habit of targeting the ventral auxiliary fuel tanks of Hirudin Blackfins. They resulting explosion is incandescent in the darkness of space and was captured by war reporters early on in the human expansion towards the Rim. Commentators mistook the sight for the explosion of a star and the name stuck.
