The First Expeditionary Fleet was formed early in the Star Army's history, probably in YE 22. At that time it was based out of Hoshi no Iori and commanded by Ketsurui Yui.

Fourth Elysian War

The First Expeditionary Fleet participated in the Fourth Elysian War.

First Mishhuvurthyar War

The First Expeditionary Fleet participated in the First Mishhuvurthyar War.

In YE 29, the YSS Sakura received orders to meet with the rest of the First Expeditionary Fleet for an attack on Refidh1)

Second Mishhuvurthyar War

During the Second Mishhuvurthyar War, the First Expeditionary Fleet was heavily involved and conducted the final raid on the NMX Headquarters at Rabaal System in YE 34.

Kuvexian War & Reestablishment

In YE 41, following a major conflict with the Interstellar Kingdom Of Kuvexia, the majority of the existing First Expeditionary Fleet was de-established and remaining ships were transferred to the First Fleet per the orders of COMSTARARMY Ketsurui Yui. The orders for re-establishment were made immediately, and Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko was given the command and oversight of the rebuilding of the fleet from scratch.

Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko has promised that the new First Expeditionary Fleet will set a new standard of Expeditionary Warfare for the Star Army of Yamatai.

Its Headquarters was moved to the Jiyuu System in YE 41 along with the rest of the fleet.

In YE 42, after the completion of the YSS Tokyo and over three hundred ships, the re-establishment was considered a success. It would be just the beginning as the fleet began to take an active role in the Kuvexian War.

The Taisho

The Taisho of the First Expeditionary Fleet of the Star Army of Yamatai is Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko, a 22 year veteran. She can generally be found on the YSS Tokyo or Gemini Star Fortress, but also frequently works out of her fully equipped office at Jiyuu-jō.
