The typical "A-Team," consisting of Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Locke and Sayid, with Claire.

"A-Missions" is a term for when the primary survivors undertook a mission, such as capturing Ethan Rom ("Homecoming") or escaping from the Hydra Island ("Not in Portland"). The term was coined by Charlie (a frequent mission-goer who, in his own opinion, fell short of being a member of the "A-Team") ("Everybody Hates Hugo") and later referenced by Sawyer ("Exposé"). An "A-Mission" refers to a mission undertaken by the Lost "A-Team", which usually included a combination of Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Locke, and Sayid.

Ateam
The "A-Team," minus Sayid, discuss a response to the attack on Sun. Ana Lucia is seen as the Tailie equivalent of an "A-Team member."

LOCKE: You want to tell me why you've been following me, Charlie?

CHARLIE: Yeah. Quite simply, John, there are a lot of secrets around here, and I'm tired of being at the bloody kid's table. I got Claire's baby back. I didn't go swanning off to the Black Rock on the bloody A-Team mission, but I would have if someone had asked me.


Definition

Wereback
The remnants of the "A-Team," return to the Island on Ajira 316 to find their destiny.

Charlie's definition is used for the purposes of this article. To be considered an "A-Mission", at least one "A-Team" member must be present for the entirety of the mission. The "A-Team" consists initially of Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Locke and Sayid. Sun became powerful after the Oceanic 6 and soon began to participate more actively in the off-Island "A-Missions." Ana Lucia, Ben, Juliet, Charlotte, Miles, Daniel, and Ilana soon joined them from the Tailies, the Others, the Freighter, and Jacob's bodyguards, respectively.

An "A-Mission" is further defined here as a quest which departs from the main body of the survivors, and involves either rescue, assistance to another, or betterment of the survivor community as a whole. Therefore, missions such as when Sawyer went hunting for the boar or tree frog do not fall on the term "A-Mission" as these were personal quests.

A mission by supportive or independent survivors is a "B-Mission"; an Others mission is an "O-Mission"; a Freighter mission is an "F-Mission"; and a mission by Widmore's team in Season 6 is an S-Mission. All are interpreted as reactions in the form of supplements or responses to the "A-Missions".

Members

Picture Name Status Role Overview
Kate-mini
Kate Alive Semi-leader, tracker Kate has been on the most "A-Team" missions, but as a secondary to Jack, Locke or Sayid. She has proved a most skilled tracker and the nature of her missions has typically been to help Jack in some way.
Sawyer-mini
Sawyer Alive Leader, con artist Sawyer goes on missions when he wants to and, unlike the rest of the A-Team, he doesn't do it for the good of the camp (though he will help out Kate from time to time). Sawyer is a valuable member as he will kill if he needs to and can lead lesser survivors if the dominant members of the "A-Team" are indisposed.
Hurley-mini
Hurley Alive Semi-leader, cook A former member of B-Team, Hurley has also been in several A-Missions. He is one of the last three canditates. Became an A-member in Season 6. He is currently the only one who can communicate with Jacob.
Jack-mini
Jack Dead Leader, doctor/surgeon Jack acted as leader of the survivors for the entire 108 days spent surviving on the Island due to his highly-desired skills with medicine and protective tendencies. He has a habit of taking the leadership role on every mission he goes on and this sometimes makes him clash with Locke.
Sayid-mini
Sayid Dead Semi-leader, technical skills, interrogator, soldier Sayid was a very active member of the "A-Team," always providing support to the leaders. He had many skills that helped in the missions. These included technological knowledge, diplomacy, torture, and fixing technical equipment.
Sun-mini
Sun Dead Semi-leader, corporate power, translator Initially a subordinate translator to her husband Jin, Sun became a prominent member of the "A-Team" over the false belief that Jin had perished on the Freighter. Her goal in more recent "A-missions" was re-uniting with her long-lost husband; she was aided by her cold demeanor and hostile takeover of her father's corporate industry.
Locke-mini
Locke Dead Leader, hunter, tracker Locke kept his own agenda as a leader and joined "A-Team" missions with input and advice but originally delegated his power to Jack. After tensions flared over control, Locke started to break away from the survivors and lead in his own fashion. He assumed control of the survivors when most of the "A-Team" was captured by Michael's betrayal, but joined the Others soon after and realized his potential to the Island, though never formally led them.
Juliet-mini
Juliet Dead Semi-leader, doctor/fertility researcher, former-Other Juliet defected to the survivors when she grew tired of Ben's lies and machinations that had plagued her life on the Island for the last three years. Being a doctor and having a relatively intimate knowledge of the Others' facilities on the Island, she provided strong support for the leader of most "A-Missions."
Ana-mini
Ana Lucia Dead Leader, interrogator Ana Lucia assumed authoritarian control of the tail section survivors and endured aggressive tactics by the Others to kidnap her people. She eventually merged her tribe with the middle section survivors' beach camp, during which time she played an active role in "A-Team" planning and preparation.

Season 1

The 1st Season established the "A-Mission" as being one of an exploratory or survival nature being undertaken by strictly the middle section survivors of Oceanic Flight 815. This began the inception of the "A-Team" comprised of Jack, Kate, Locke, Sawyer, and Sayid.

Discoveries: Ethan's true identity, his superior stealth and strength, The Hatch
Relation to Lost storyline: Locke and Boone found the Hatch embedded in the ground when divided from Jack and Kate who found and revived Charlie. Charlie remained mute and jaded for several days until being assured by Rosethat it was not his fault that Claire was taken.

Search for the Beechcraft

Search for the Beechcraft
Smugglersplane

Also Involved: Boone
Mission: To find the beechcraft airplane, believing it to be a sign meant to help them.
Corresponding O-Mission: None
Corresponding F-Mission: None

When he wakes up, Locke convinces Boone to abandon their pursuits on entering the Hatch to instead search for the beechcraft airplane that Locke saw in one of his visions.
Discoveries: The beechcraft, contact with unknown outside sources, light inside the Hatch
Relation to Lost storyline: Locke and Boone trek into the jungle to find a plane that Locke saw in one of his visions. However, Boone's expedition up the ridge and into the plane yielded nothing except dead bodies, Nigerian maps, and heroine-filled Virgin Mary statues. Locke's faith was tested by this worthless discovery, but worsened when (upon making a Mayday signal) the plane fell from the ridge and Boone was severely injured. This may have been the sign Locke wanted all along, for if not for Boone's injuries, Locke would never have been sobbing and beating his fists upon the Hatch that night, prompting the man inside the Hatch to abort his attempted suicide and turn on the spotlight, giving Locke hope once more.

Corresponding F-Mission: None
Background: Michael recently spent most of his time building a raft with other survivors. The first was secretly destroyed by Walt, while the second was successfully built in half the time, also gaining Jin as a significant contributor.

Relation to Lost storyline: Charlie took one of the heroin-filled Virgin Mary statues back to camp with him, but Claire failed to notice because she was overwhelmed with gratitude for his retrieval of Aaron.

Open the Hatch

Open the Hatch
Ep1x23-hatch open
Outcome: Accomplished
Episodes: "Exodus, Part 2"
A Team Members: Jack, Locke, Kate
Also Involved: Hurley
Mission: To open the Hatch and to hide everyone inside to save them from the Others.
Corresponding O-Mission: None
Corresponding F-Mission: None
Background: As per Rousseau’s warning, the Others were supposedly on their way. Since the journey to the Black Rock had proved successful, the survivors now had dynamite with which to open the Hatch. While Locke had secretly planned for weeks to open the Hatch in order to find his destiny, Jack was more in favor of doing so to provide the other survivors with a sanctuary if the Others did in fact show up.
Discoveries: The numbers on the side of the Hatch
Relation to Lost storyline: Despite Hurley's objections, the Hatch door was blown clean off by the dynamite. This led Locke to believe that he had finally accomplished his mission and that all of the hardships and failures he had endured on the Island (as well as in his previous life) were all leading up to this accomplishment. Yet, the Hatch extended far deeper into the ground than anyone had expected, which caused apprehension in Jack and Kate.

Season 2

The beginning of Season 2 ties up the transition from Season 1. The mission "Journey by Raft" is the aftermath of the previous season's encounter with the Others, and also serves to introduces the Tailies, who are featured centrally in Season 2, as Ana Lucia joins the A-Mission squad through virtue of leading the Tailies for 48 days. The entry into the Hatch serves to introduce the survivors to the DHARMA Initiative as they are forced to push a button every 108 minutes for an indefinite amount of time, leading to Locke's destiny being jeopardized. Furthermore, Walt's abduction from the raft sets the stage for several attempts made by Michael to rescue Walt from the Others. Also, the rivalry between the survivors and the Others gains momentum.

Background: To convince his captors of his truthfulness, “Henry” drew a map to a balloon that was mentioned in his story.

Mission: To get the blast doors to retract and push the button before the timer reached zero.
Corresponding O-Mission: None
Corresponding F-Mission: None
Background: While guarding “Henry,” Locke noticed that the Swan speakers were functioning for the first time, with a voice speaking through static.

Discoveries: Blast door map, the DHARMA supply drop.
Relation to Lost storyline: Locke realized that he couldn’t jam the door up by himself, so he released “Henry” from the armory to aid him.

Eventually, the timer reached zero and the lights went out, but a blacklight came on and a map of the Island and DHARMA stations appeared on one of the doors, then it vanished.

Relation to Lost storyline: Locke gathered a handful of survivors and island-castaways to trek into hiding so the freighter people can't find them. But first, Locke wanted to take a detour and visit Jacob in his cabin for further instructions. As they walked, Hurley commented the cabin was in a different direction, but in response to Locke and Ben's surprised faces, he quickly muttered something about the airplane cabin. On the way, they picked up another parachutist from the freighter, which led Ben to attempt murder against her - to no avail. Much to Locke's annoyance, the cabin had seemed to disappear from it's original location and Ben remarked in-front of the group that Locke was lost. This lead Hurley to question his intentions about their hostage, but Locke re-affirmed his leadership and they continued on to the Barracks while covering his disappointment that he truly didn't know what to do next.

Relation to Lost storyline: Sayid and Desmond were brought to the freighter by Frank in the helicopter to find out why they're offshore of the Island. At first, information on why they were there was given out sparsely, because as soon as they arrived, Desmond began to be effected by the Island's side-effects. However later the pair met the captain, who told them who had commissioned the freighter and the supposed reason why they want Ben - because some of them believe he placed the fake wreckage in the ocean to deter Widmore into finding the Island. A few days later, Sayid and Desmond discovered Michael aboard, who was a spy for Ben, and they turned him into Gault. Before the two castaways realize that mercenaries were aboard, they made two trips to the Island and caused mass casualties.
