A squadron is a small grouping of starships or aircraft.

The Cardassians called a squadron a dai'elk (plural dai'elkor), which was a grouping of five vessels of smaller starships such as the Hideki-class and commanded by a glinn or a kel. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

In the Dominion a squadron was a group of three to six small attack craft such as Jem'Hadar attack ships and commanded by a Vorta Vara'thoran. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

Prior to the First Battle of Chin'toka, the entire Dominion force protecting the star system was only five squadrons. (DS9: "Tears of the Prophets"; Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Into the Fire")

A squadron within Starfleet was usually a grouping of two to four starships or attack fighters. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

Starfleet Starfighter Corps had its squadron sized units based around a grouping of twelve fighters. The officer in command was referred to by the title, Squadron Leader. (Star Trek: Swiftfire)

Star Trek: Banshee Squadron fighter wing

In Star Trek: Banshee Squadron, the term "squadron" is used very loosely, inaccurately, and interchangeably with the term "wing". A squadron or wing is simply a group of starfighters, usually numbering five, under the command of a Wing Commander.

Shadow Squadron, a Republic starfighter squadron.

A squadron was any group of coordinated aerial or space warships. They could be made up of Starfighters, Bombers, Gunships, and Capital ships. Squadrons could be permanent or temporary and were used for a variety of missions. The most common make up for starfighter squadrons was 12 ships.

Missions

Starfighters were used in a huge variety of missions. The most common were attack missions, seek and destroy, escorts and reconnaissance.

Bombers were used to assault ground targets or larger warships.

Gunships were used to seek and destroy starfighters and bombers and/or to protect capital ships.

Capital ships were sometimes called groups instead of squadrons; however, they were essentially used in the same way as their smaller counterparts, only on a larger scale.

Organization

Typically Squadrons operated under a squadron commander, with an Executive Officer, and Second in command. Their personal ranks varied depending on the type of squadron. For Example; a starfighter squadron may have a Commander or Captain. While a squadron of Capital Ships would be under a full Admiral or General.
