The Seventh Fleet was a fleet within the Republic Navy that was formed between 22 BBY and 19 BBY, and was active during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The fleet included one ARC-170 starfighter that was crewed by a clone trooper pilot acting as a gunner in Phase I clone trooper armor with blue markings on the clone's helmet, along with a red R-series astromech droid. At some point, the starfighter flew near a green nebula while in space.
Behind the scenes
The Seventh Fleet was introduced in the new Star Wars canon on a card titled "Seventh Fleet Gunner" in the ARC-170 Starfighter Expansion Pack, a 2019 expansion for the miniatures game Star Wars: X-Wing Second Edition by Fantasy Flight Games. In the Star Wars Legends continuity, the Galactic Republic Seventh Fleet was first mentioned in the video game Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, which was released in 2010.
Notes and references
- Star Wars: X-Wing Second Edition – ARC-170 Starfighter Expansion Pack (Card: )
- Star Wars: X-Wing Second Edition – ARC-170 Starfighter Expansion Pack (Card: ) establishes that the Seventh Fleet belonged to the Galactic Republic. Rise of the Separatists states that Republic fleets fell under the Republic Navy, and that the latter was established shortly prior to the First Battle of Geonosis of the Clone Wars, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 22 BBY. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas additionally establishes that the Clone Wars ended in 19 BBY. Since the Seventh Fleet was active during the Clone Wars and was under the Republic Navy, the fleet was founded between 22 BBY and 19 BBY.
