The 15th Fleet (Japanese: 第15艦隊) was a unit of the Free Planets Star Fleet that was hurriedly formed in response to the Galactic Empire's invasion of the Free Planets Alliance in 799 UC (1 NIC / 490 IC / 3599 CE). Vice Admiral Ralph Carlsen served as its commander during most of its existence, flying his flag aboard the battleship Diomedes. The vessels of the 15th Fleet came from system security squadrons, old ships about to be decommissioned, and newly constructed ships on space trials. (LOGH: 'The Cold Spell Arrives')

They saw action at the Battle of Rantemario in February 799, not long after their formation, against the invading Imperial force. It took significant losses along with the rest of the Alliance fleet. About five months later, after the end of the first Alliance–Imperial War, the 15th Fleet was again deployed to fight against the Imperial Navy when they declared war a second time. The Battle of Marr-Adetta in January 800 UC (2 NIC / 491 IC / 3600 CE) resulted in the annihilation of most of the Alliance Fleet there, including the ships of the 15th, and resulted in the death of Admiral Carlsen.
