The 5th Fleet (Japanese: 第5艦隊) was a unit of the Free Planets Star Fleet that existed since at least 745 UC (436 IC / 3545 CE).


It fought at the Second Battle of Tiamat in 745 UC (436 IC / 3545 CE) under the command of Vice Admiral Wallace Warwick, where it fought against the fleets of admirals Wilhelm von Mückenberger and Keit. The battle resulted in a major Alliance victory. (SL: 'The Man Loved by the Goddess of Time: Chronicle of the Second Battle of Tiamat, Part I', 'The Death of a Hero: Chronicle of the Second Battle of Tiamat, Part II')

It was later commanded by Alexandre Bewcock at the Third Battle of Tiamat, in 794 UC (485 IC / 3594 CE), surviving the battle intact. It covered the retreat of the surviving units of Willem Holland's 11th Fleet after they withdrew from their main attack against the Imperial formation. (TBT: 'Part One', 'Part Two')

The 5th Fleet was also led by Vice Admiral Bewcock during the Alliance's attempted invasion of the Galactic Empire in 796 UC (487 IC / 3596 CE). The 5th Fleet initially fought against the Reuenthal Fleet during the Battle of Bilrost, managing to disengage and withdraw but sustaining 30% casualties. It later took part in the Battle of Amritsar, where it, along with the 13th Fleet, was able to escape from the area (although at the cost of considerable casualties).
