History

Established as the first organized body of fleet vessels during the War of Secession, the First Fleet became known for the brutal battles that it became involved with during the war. Originally comprised solely of battleships, cruisers, frigates, and destroyers, in the mid-2200s, the advent of technology allowing for further vessel roles expanded the size of the fleet, as new classes were built to fill a variety of roles.

After the disaster of 2431 CE in the Mithus System, the First Fleet has been one of the fleets rotating through the system charged with keeping order in the system. The First Fleet was redeployed to the Mithus System in 2502 CE for the first part of a two-year rotation.
