The Fourth Fleet, colloquially known as Bravo Fleet, is one of the numbered fleets that make up Starfleet. Founded in response to the Borg incursions of 2367 and 2373, the Fourth Fleet has grown over the years to support operations in all four quadrants of the galaxy through its six operational units, Task Forces 9, 38, 64, 72, 93 and 99.


Following the the Borg Invasion of Sector 001 and the onset of the Dominion War, Starfleet was forced to quickly mobilize all available assets in joint efforts with the Klingon Empire and the Romulan Star Empire. Thus, the Fourth Fleet, commonly referred to as Bravo Fleet was born. The Fourth Fleet was called upon for multiple occasions during the war, including the initative to retake Deep Space 9 and the Invasion of Cardassia.

Upon signing of the Treaty of Bajor, Starfleet reorganized the Fourth Fleet into multiple Task Forces which were assigned to multiple mandates throughout the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. Over time, the Fourth Fleet's Area of Operations was expanded to include the Gamma Quadrant (for exploration) and the Delta Quadrant (to reach out to lost ships, like the USS Voyager.

Today, the galaxy remains an uncertain theater. While many powers, like the Cardassian Union, looking to reclaim former glory, the Romulan Empire recoiling from the destruction of their homeworld, and even the Borg advancing their directive to assimilate the galaxy at large, the Fourth Fleet has been tasked with maintaining the peace, and respond appropriately to any crisis.


Throughout its history, Bravo Fleet has been divided into a multitude of Task Forces, each with a mandate to uphold in a section of the galaxy. Presently, the Fourth Fleet consists of 5 Task Forces.
