The YSS Kōkatsu was built for Star Army Intelligence in YE 35.

YE 39

With a new crew assembled, the YSS Kōkatsu launched from Jiyuu Fleet Depot on a mission into former Lorath Matriarchy space in YE 39. Following that civilization's sudden disappearance from the sector, the ship was part of SAINT's second wave of intelligence sweeps into the region. The Kōkatsu's mission: Land on Tange IV, infiltrate former United Outer Colonies industrial installations that were abandoned during Evacuation of the Tange System, and retrieve whatever R&D logs they can find. Although nearly ten years had passed since the UOC's treason and breakaway from the Empire, Yamatai still expected a return on investment. Following a smooth insertion, the ship's Special Operations Fire Team delved into corporate ruins located at the colony of Frozen Coast and returned with technical research that had been lost since the planet's fall to the NMX.

YE 41

Not long after the Kōkatsu's hull was refit from its original Chiaki-class Destroyer configuration and converted into an Asuza-class Light Gunship in YE 41, war came to the Kikyo Sector. In the immediate wake of the Kuvexian Invasion of YE 41, the Kōkatsu was deployed to New Vicky (UX-19), which had been captured by enemy forces, with orders to ensure that the SAINT facility there was scoured of any sensitive information before the Kuvexians could acquire it. The veteran intelligence operative Nicholas Saiga and the samurai Tokuko were attached to the ship's regular Special Operations Fire Team to assist in pursuit of the critical mission.

Characters and Players

Cabin Assignments

The Kōkatsu's five standard crew cabins are located in the aftmost section of Deck One, arranged around the SAINT crest that emblazons its hull.

Room Occupants Notes
Cabin 1 Yoshiko Reserved for the captain
Cabin 2 Sakai
Cabin 3 Kyoka
Cabin 4 Osakura
Cabin 5 2 SAINT operatives Vague NPCs unless filled by PCs

Open Positions

All standard ship-based positions on the YSS Kōkatsu are open. The ship's SAINT status means everyone aboard will likely be double-trained as an operative. Because of the Chiaki's jamming systems, an information warfare specialist might be a fun occupation to play. Currently, we have exclusively infantry-specialized Neko characters.
