Squadrons are activated during the Squadron Phase. Squadrons can also be activated during the Ship Phase when a ship resolves a command.
- When a squadron is activated during the Squadron Phase, it can move or attack, but not both.
- When a squadron is activated by a command, it can move and attack in any order.
- After a squadron activates, toggle its activation slider to track that it has activated.
- A squadron cannot activate if the color and icon of its activation slider do not match the initiative token.
