The Coalition Reserve Fleet was a reserve naval military unit in the Coalition Space Fleet. Stationed primarily at Animus IV and other major Coalition colonies, they were an emergency reserve force called upon only when absolutely necessary. Most of it's leadership consisted of older command staff not yet ready for retirement, and would often serve a double role as advisors for the Coalition Space Fleet Forces Command.
It was a mistake to consider these leaders weak because of their age. On the contrary, their experience and wisdom made them strong, and many believed that should the Reserve Fleet ever be called into action, these leaders could enable the survival of the Coalition against impossible odds.
The enlisted members of the reserve fleet typically lived most of their time as regular citizens who could be called into action aboard their berthed vessels at a moment's notice, and would conduct on-vessel training and operations on a rotating basis to maintain their level of experience.
