Squad 451, or more commonly referred to as 451, was a special unit of rebel sharpshooters. Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, Gale Hawthorne, and Finnick Odair were all members of this squad.

The squad was trained in District 13 and was sent on a mission to the Capitol, getting drawn into the Battle of the Capitol. They were also referred to as the "Star Squad" because they were the on-screen faces of the rebel invasion. The squad was accompanied by a TV crew (Cressida, Messalla, Castor, and Pollux) so that they could continue to make propos for the Airtime Assault. The squad was intentionally created for propos mainly, but Katniss Everdeen tricked her group into believing that they were on a special mission to get further into the Capitol. The squad and its TV crew were decimated during the battle and only five lived to see the rebellion's victory.

  • 451 could be an allusion to the novel Fahrenheit 451, seeing as how both take place in an unjust, dystopian society.
  • 451 degrees is also the temperature at which paper burns.
