YSS Akuro

The YSS Akuro (NF-X5-01) was a Chiharu-class Flagship in the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet of the Star Army of Yamatai. It was constructed in YE 28 and destroyed in YE 29.

The YSS Akuro Legacy and History

The YSS Akuro had a short but eventful lifespan. The ship was constructed at Ketsurui Fleet Yards's Luna Bianca Facility in YE 28. Upon completion, the Akuro was given the usual trials and testing and then it was given to the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet to replace the YSS Namiko as the fleet's flagship.

Notable Events

The YSS Akuro was involved in two major incidents:

Yoshike Mutiny

The traitorous Shosa Yoshike had disabled KAMI aboard the Akuro, disabling the majority of the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet that wasn't already under her control, including its entire command group along with the Akuro herself. With the ship's power cut and the lights off, the Akuro's command officers including Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko, Shimizu-Motoyoshi Akina (清水本吉明菜), Murasaki Aoiko, and Corro Adlich were caught in the ship's mess, hearing gunfire, and unsure of who they could trust. Yoshike's insurgents were moving towards their position, and Katsuko and the others had to move quickly to the emergency bridge to take control of the ship.

Along with a group of loyal enlisted, the officers fought the mutineers sent to the mess hall, then out into the corridor. Facing waves of resistance from the multiple teams sent to attack them, joined by more loyal crew along the way, the officers and crew fought insurgent barricades until they reached the emergency bridge and began to fortify their position, destroying mutineer barricades in the process to prevent them being used against them. Aoiko and Katsuko began to climb the disabled lift to the KAMI room to restart the ship's systems.

As loyal crew across the fleet began to rally after the confusion and overwhelm the mutineers aboard their respective vessels, and the YSS Confidence, having escaped sabotage and remaining operational, turned the tide against insurgent fighters in power armor out in space. Soon only the YSS Ixa remained under Yoshike's control as enlisted technicians aboard the Akuro with the officers cleared out the sabotage and reactivated the Akuro's systems. With Yoshike and the Ixa maneuvered into checkmate, the insurgency was over.

Ichiro Incident

In YE 29, devastating sabotage unfolded on the under-construction Iori-Class Star Fortress, Taiie no Iori which resulted in the base's KAMI going hostile. The sabortaged computer produced a sprite by the name of Ichiro and began to infect key personnel and savagely murder the officers and crew.

Yukari Freeman, along with Hatsubutai Ayano, Corro Adlich and Ryuuza Kurodai, attempted to save the Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko and fought the crew infected by Ichiro. Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko was forced to kill Shimizu-Motoyoshi Akina (清水本吉明菜) during the infection and eventually freed herself from captivity.

In the end, Ichiro fled to the YSS Akuro, in an attempt to attack the Nepleslian Star Empire. The hijacking resulted in the activation of the ship's auto-destruct and the ship was destroyed. It was later found that rogue element within Star Army Intelligence had attempted to remove Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko and start a conflict with the Nepleslian Star Empire.

Exploration and Colonization

The Akuro participated in the colonization and exploration of many star systems:
