A Fleet is a large, permanent organization of starships. Fleets are usually relatively large and manned by thousands of individuals on what is normally hundreds of ships. Though the size of Fleets vary, UNSC and Covenant Fleets are very different.

UNSC Fleets

Main article: UNSC Fleet

UNSC Fleets are massive divisions of UNSC ships. UNSC Fleets usually consist of large numbers of Frigates and Destroyers, escorting a handful of larger Carriers and Cruisers. These Fleets also usually have a Prowler to act as the Fleet's eyes and ears and to also serve as saboteurs. Fleets are given a simple, numerical designation. Similar to the Covenant Fleet, UNSC warships can rely on Phoenix Class Colony Ships for ammo, repairs and food. This allowed the fleets to maintain themselves for a very long period of time.

Smaller UNSC groups of ships are called Battle Groups.

It should be noted that the UNSC Commercial Fleet is not a military unit and instead fulfills the role of a merchant navy.

Covenant Fleets

Main article: Covenant Fleet

Unlike in the UNSC, Covenant Fleets are dominated by larger, more powerful ships. Covenant Frigates are common in smaller Fleets, however, there are usually far more Destroyers and Cruisers suited for glassing and orbital bombardment. Covenant Fleets are essentially self-sustaining Armadas, capable of operating without supply for indefinite periods thanks to their use of Agricultural Support Ships. They are also given different designations, like ships. Covenant Large Fleets typically contain thousands of ships, most of them CCS-Battlecruisers and groups of Assault Carriers.

Smaller groups of Covenant ships are called Task Forces.

A fleet is a large grouping of starships travelling together or assigned to particular duty.

The term fleet can be applied to any significant gathering of starships as well as to refer to the totality of a power's space based forces. Military powers with large numbers of vessels often organise their forces into specific fleets commonly referred to by a numerical designation.

During wartime the Breen organize their forces in brot'kar, which are fleets based on the state that contributed the vessels. As such the size of brot'kars vary as more powerful states can field hundreds of vessels while the lesser states might only be able to contribute a dozen. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

Cardassian Union orders operated fleets, called shodaro of 150 - 300 starships. A shodar would be commanded by a jagul or gul. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

The Klingon Defence Force referred to their fleets as battlegroups. These battlegroups were commanded by a high ranking Klingon general. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "Regression", "Pressure Points")

The Romulan Star Navy's Avara (century) designation was for their fleet units of around one hundred vessels. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

Starfleet operated numerous numerical fleets made up of hundreds of starships. These fleets were usually commanded by a high ranking flag officer, such as an Admiral or Fleet Admiral. These fleets were usually based around several tactical wings. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon; Star Trek: Swiftfire)
