'''Earth Fleet''' is the name for the [[Earth Federation|Earth Federation's]] space vessel military branch. At various points in its history, hundreds of different types of ships were utilized. More detailed Information about the Earth Fleet at the height of its power (right before the [[Third Civil War]]) is archived at this [http://techinfantry.stasheff.com/earthfleet/index.html website] and mirrored [http://www.geocities.ws/earthfleet2000/ here].
The Earth Fleet was officially disbanded after the Federation was defeated in the [[Ascension War]].
Many of the surviving Earth Fleet warships were absorbed into the [[Imperial Navy]] (with the oldest sent to the [[Fifth Fleet]]) while others ended up in the personal fleets of the various of [[:Category:Imperial Houses|noble Houses]] of the [[Holy Terran Empire]].
===Behind the Scenes===
Earth Fleet is a reference to [http://babylon5.wikia.com/ Babylon 5], but since the name of the game is "Tech Infantry," [[User:Hansi2112|Nathan Bax]] never really elaborated about the ships, beyond a few ship designs at Penny Horwitz's urging in [[History of the Game#Season Three (1998)|Season 3]] (although the [[Star Control Ship]]s were designed as a poignant "I can make it bigger" spar with Penny). [[User:Martin The Mess|Martin Hohner]] is the real creator and the impetus behind making Earth Fleet far more important. After all, his character ([[Erich Von Shrakenberg]]) depended on it. So the website linked above was created for [[History of the Game#Season Four (1999-2001)|Season 4.3]].
