77 Squadron was a starfighter squadron that served as part of the New Republic's starfighter corps during the Galactic Civil War. Mostly consisting of X-wing starfighters, the squadron participated in the Battle of Jakku under the designation "Blue Squadron". After receiving reports of an Imperial Star Destroyer near Jakku, Admiral Gial Ackbar sent a reconnaissance team to investigate with 77 Squadron accompanying them as a security escort. Upon emerging from hyperspace, the group quickly ran into a group of TIE fighters guarding a Star Destroyer orbiting the planet. In the skirmish that ensued, the Star Destroyer was taken out and the recon team quickly returned to base.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

77 Squadron was created for Hyperspace Mountain, a Star Wars-themed overlay of the Space Mountain attraction for Disneyland's Season of the Force event and Hong Kong Disneyland's Star Wars: Tomorrowland Takeover. The Squadron takes its number from 1977, the year both Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and the Disneyland incarnation of Space Mountain first premiered. [2] Images in the ride queue before and after the overlay depict the similarly-named "Space Station 77."
