The Dominion Fleet (a.k.a. "Dominion Armada" or "Dominion Navy") is the space naval arm of the Terran Dominion military. A portion of the Armada's initial strength derived from former Confederate units.
Shortly after the establishment of the Dominion elements of the fleet traveled to Char due to Sarah Kerrigan's psionic emanations. The fleet was led by General Edmund Duke and contained elements of Alpha Squadron. It engaged zerg and protoss forces in orbit but was defeated. Many ships were either overrun by the zerg or destroyed by the Protoss Expeditionary Fleet that arrived shortly after. With the ground forces suffering disaster as well the fleet fell back from Char, and later another fleet was defeated by the protoss.
The Brood WarEdit
The fleet did not fare well during the Brood War. The United Earth Directorate Expeditionary Force inflicted notable defeats during the raid on the Dylarian Shipyards and the conquest of Korhal. It had to be rescued by Mengsk's temporary allies. By the end of the war, the fleet had been rebuilt via a "collection of interests," but was once again defeated by Kerrigan's forces at Char Aleph.
In the years following the Brood War, credits that might have been better spent on expanding the Fleet were instead spent by Arcturus Mengsk in his hunt for Jim Raynor. Even so, by the time the Second Great War broke out, the Dominion had been able to construct several large fleets with advanced technology.
The Second Great WarEdit
In 2504, the Dominion's Satellite 1 in the Char System detected preparations by the Zerg Swarm to launch a massive attack on the Koprulu Sector. The fleet was placed on alert. The zerg struck shortly afterwards, and the fleet abandoned the Fringe Worlds to fortify the Core Worlds.
The Dominion was unwilling to help the massive flow of refugees. The fleet was ordered to turn away refugee ships arriving in the Core Worlds.
Prince Valerian Mengsk requisitioned half of the fleet's battlecruisers for an assault on Char without formally notifying Emperor Arcturus Mengsk. Bucephalus was the battlegroup's flagship. The battlegroup suffered heavy losses, but with the aid of Raynor's Raiders and a xel'naga device the attack succeeded and Kerrigan was deinfested.
After the battle, Emperor Mengsk demanded custody of Kerrigan; as leverage the emperor travelled to Char aboard the new flagship, White Star, at the head of the Dominion's remaining battlecruisers. The prince refused. The prince's now-renegade battlegroup and Raynor's Raiders fled and were pursued by the Dominion fleet. The renegades suffered near total losses, but managed to escape with Kerrigan to the Umojan Protectorate.
