Location of the GTVA 12th Fleet

The article says that the 12th Fleet is based in Ross 128, but the failure debriefing of Argonautica clearly states that it's based in Wolf 359:

Your next assignment would have been on board the Aquitaine, leading the 70th Blue Lions squadron. However, with these recent developments, you have been reassigned to fly support for the 12th Fleet in the remote Wolf 359 system.

How to deal with that? Does the fleet operate in both systems? It'd be very strange, because Ross 128 and Wolf 359 are very, very far. --- Mobius

  • The way I see it non-canon info is always countermanded by canon. - Snail 14:59, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
    • In other words, you're saying that the 12th Fleet is based in Ross 128 in a campaign and someone considered it a canon info? --- Mobius
      • No. That's not what I'm saying. Is there another canon source saying that the 12th Fleet is in Ross 128? If not, then it's fully 100% canon that it's based in Wolf 359. End of story. - Snail 18:41, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
        • I'm pretty sure that the writer just mistook Wolf 359 with Ross 128, with both being a 4 letter name then 3 numbers, I can see that happening. I don't think there is any canon evidence for the 12th fleet being in Ross 128. Droid803 20:58, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
          • This article is nearly entirely bull****, to put it mildly. I'm not even sure why we keep it. Most of the fleet locations were simply made up by Sutek back in the day. Ngtm1r 09:08, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
            • Delete it may be an exaggerate option. By the way, do we have any canon sources saying that the 12th Fleet is based in Ross 128? If not, I'd like to edit the page. --- Mobius
              • Actually, this page is supposed to be about the canonically confirmed ones. The pages it links to are the ones that are made up. Droid803 22:45, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
