The Death Squad was a Federation military unit with, according to Tarrant, 'a record for brutality hard to match'.

Klegg and his men were Death Squad members, and this fact was used by Tarrant to justify his cold-blooded murder of one of them. It seems rather unlikely that the Death Squad had only six members, it was probably a larger unit to which they belonged.

It is unknown whether 'Death Squad' was the unit's official title or simply a nickname. (C: Powerplay)
