The Starfleet 5th Fleet was a military unit, a fleet group of the Federation Starfleet during the Dominion War.

History[edit | edit source]

In the late 24th century, the 5th Fleet was a standing fleet, centered around the Andor sector. With the Andorian homeworld under their watch, the 5th Fleet works closely with the Andorian Defense Force.

Elements of the 5th fleet made up the forces massed at Wolf 359 to battle the Borg in 2367. Along with the 4th and 7th Fleets, the 5th was severely decimated by that confrontation. (Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual)

In 2374's Operation Return, the 5th Fleet was teamed with the 2nd Fleet in a victorious effort to retake Deep Space 9. As he assembled his fleets in preparation, Captain Benjamin Sisko caught the notice of Dominion strategists when he withdrew the 5th Fleet away from it's previous position. (DS9 episodes: "Favor the Bold", "Sacrifice of Angels"; DS9 novelization: ...Sacrifice of Angels)
