The 403rd's assignment patch.

Service history and disposition[edit | edit source]

Squadron flagship USS Pathfinder.

Following the re-activation of the Iconian Gateway Network across the Milky Way Galaxy in 2410, the Pathfinder was requisitioned for Starfleet's new four-quadrant strategy (4QS) of exploration. Starfleet Command hastily assembled survey squadrons. The Pathfinder-class prototype was equipped with a quantum slipstream drive. The Pathfinder and four other ships were assigned to the 403rd Survey Squadron.

As part of the 4QS, the squadron would traverse a class IV Iconian gateway and begin surveying adjacent star systems, before transmitting their results back to Starfleet Command. (STO Issue 07: "USS Pathfinder")

Khitomer Alliance flag officer in, or aligned with, Starfleet, deployed Pathfinder for missions around the galaxy's four quadrants. (STO - Klingon War mission: "Welcome to Earth Spacedock", admiralty system)
