Fleet was a word often used to describe a group of ships working or travelling together. Fleets were often used in war. Throughout history, fleets had been prevalent on planets as well as in space.
Fleets on planets Edit
In the history of Earth, fleets were used for many purposes, such as war. Since these conflicts took place on a planet, they involved naval ships as opposed to starships. (PROSE: H.M.S. TARDIS)
Fleets in space Edit
A star fleet or space fleet was a fleet of starships or other spacecraft. Many space-faring factions, such as the Daleks, (TV: Resurrection of the Daleks), the Cybermen, (TV: Silver Nemesis) and the Sontarans, (TV: The Sontaran Stratagem) operated in fleets.
