Star Trek Expanded Universe

The Starfleet Fifth Fleet was a numbered fleet in the United Federation of Planets Starfleet, active during at least the 22nd, 23rd and 24th centuries.

Dominion War[]

The USS Edmund Fitzgerald, commanded by Captain Robert DeSoto, would become one of the capital ships of the Fifth. (USS Baldwin: "Wartime Productions")

The Fifth was then reassigned to the Vulcan border to receive a reprieve from the fighting. However, the Dominion's continual advance soon shifts the fighting up to the Vulcan border. (DS9: "Favor the Bold")

Operation Return saw an element of the Fifth Fleet assigned to Captain Benjamin Sisko's plan to recapture Deep Space 9. Following the battle, the fleet was rotated off the frontlines to replace its losses. (DS9: "Favor the Bold", "Sacrifice of Angels")

The Fifth Fleet also included the 10th Cruiser Wing. Captain Patrick Ingrum of the USS Baldwin was given command of this wing in 2375. Patrick's first mission as wing commander was to lead his wing on a mission to retake Betazed. (USS Baldwin: "Determined Warrior")

The 10th Wing also engaged in a campaign to retake Betazed while the rest of the Fifth engaged the Jem'Hadar as a diversion. (USS Baldwin: "Determined Warrior") Later, the Fifth would be targeted for an ambush attempt by having ships hidden in the Ludine Nebula. Intelligence information compiled by Baldwin quickly uncovered the ambush. (USS Baldwin: "Danger Zone")

Dominion War Sourcebook continuity[]

The Fifth Fleet was commanded by Admiral Salok from 2371. During the Dominion War, Salok's flagship was the USS Gibraltar. Apart from Operation Return, the fleet saw major action in the First, Second and Third Battle of Vulcanis.

In 2377-78, Admiral Chris Wallace was the Fifth's fleet commander. (Ships of the Star Fleet, Vol. 4: Star Fleet Operating Forces. )
