The Seventh Fleet was a numbered fleet of the United Federation of Planets Starfleet active during at least the 22nd, 23rd, 24th, and 25th centuries.

23rd century[]

Fleet Captain David Ryan was commanding officer of the Seventh Fleet in the early 2280s. (Star Trek: Avenger: "Operations Log - USS Avenger")

By the late 2280s, the Seventh's command base was Starbase 29. Rear Admiral Faye Esswein was the Seventh Fleet's commanding officer in 2287. (Star Trek: Avenger: "By Honor Bound")

USS Avenger became the Seventh Fleet's flagship in January of 2288 when Rear Admiral Alex Rosenzweig was named the fleet's commanding officer. Rosenzweig served in this position until September 2294. (Star Trek: Avenger)

In mid-2292, a significant intelligence coup was scored by the Seventh Fleet against the Klingon Empire. Following a so-called "surrender" signed by Rear Admiral Rosenzweig, supposedly transferring control of Seventh Fleet vessels and personnel to the 82nd Klingon Rapid Assault Force, a squadron of drone probes -- using the Sarda sensor-confusing projection devices -- was sent to the Klingon border projecting images of the starships of the Seventh Fleet. Klingon sensors were fooled, and the drones escorted to the Klingon home system. Upon arrival, the drones initiated a high-speed coded data-dump of their intelligence data to Starbase 29.

They then dropped the projections and fused all their on-board equipment, ensuring that access to their technologies was impossible. The Federation Council publicly denied all knowledge of the operation. (Fleet 7 #21)

Fleet Captain Robert Vosseller was commanding officer of the Seventh Fleet beginning in late 2294, shortly after the command base and the Seventh was moved from Starbase 29 to Starbase 7 and the "inner Federation". He was promoted to commodore within a year, and remained in command until 2299. (Star Trek: Avenger: "Aftermath")

A conference was held on the arboreal world code-named Yggdrasil in October 2297. It is attended by officers assigned to vessels from the First Fleet and Seventh Fleet, including USS Accord, USS Adamant, USS Ascension, USS Avenger, USS Chesapeake, USS Lexington, and USS Thagard. (Star Trek: Shadowstar Station)

24th century[]

For a year, from 2301 to 2302, Fleet Captain John A. Cohen was the Seventh Fleet's commander. He was briefly succeeded by Fleet Captain (later Commodore) Edward Tunis III, then, in 2302, now-Admiral Rosenzweig returned to command of the Seventh Fleet until 2304. A former Starfleet Commander-in-Chief, Fleet Admiral Michael Smith, commanded the Seventh Fleet from 2304 to 2306.

Admiral Wayne Augustson was commanding officer of the Seventh Fleet beginning in 2308 and until 2323. He was succeeded by now-Admiral Vosseller.

In January 2374, Federation President Rosarev -- in his role as Commander-in-Chief of Federation forces -- ordered the Seventh, Ninth and Tenth Fleets to the Spinward Theater of Operations. (Dominion War Timeline: "Early Dominion Victories: January-June 2374")

Later that year, the fleet was tasked with halting the Jem'Hadar in the Tyra system. The attack was a disaster for the Seventh Fleet, with only 14 ships -- out of the 112 vessels involved -- surviving the battle. (DS9: "A Time to Stand"; Star Trek: The Adventures of Argus: "Trial By Fire").

In canon, it is unclear whether this represented the bulk of the fleet or a fraction of its forces. In the The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon this force was the entire fleet.

Later in 2374, the Seventh Fleet -- under the command of Admiral Arthur Bellamy -- took heavy losses again, during the Battle of the Sybaron system. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon) It was only at half strength by the time they were sent to the Tibor Nebula, in the Kalandra sector, where they were going to attempt to cut off the Dominion. (DS9: "The Reckoning")

In early 2375, the fleet was assigned to launch a counteroffensive against the Cardassians in the Kalandra sector. Among the vessels assigned to the fleet was the USS Destiny. (DS9: "Afterimage") During the Kalandra campaign, command of the fleet was given to Admiral Valerie Umstead. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

USS Endeavour was assigned to the Seventh Fleet and tasked with helping to rebuild Cardassia. (Star Trek: Hidden Frontier: "To the Stars")

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

25th century[]

The Seventh Fleet entered the Romulan Neutral Zone for a series of exercises in 2409. (Star Trek Online)

It is unclear if this event happened in a timeline where the Romulan heartworlds were destroyed by the Hobus supernova.
