YSS Freedom, NG-X1-411, was a modified Plumeria-class (2D) Medium Gunship built at Gemini Star Fortress by Ketsurui Fleet Yards in YE 30 for the Star Army of Yamatai's First Expeditionary Fleet. She was commanded by Chui Mutao Oka.
The remains of the ship are on the jungle/swamp planet in the HX-13 System.
As of YE 32, scans showed the following:
As Eucharis carried out a high resolution scan, a volumetric diagram appeared in front of Hanako as layer by layer the crash site was analyzed and charted, showing pits and pieces of shrapnel and armor panels. The main piece of wreckage was primarily composed of the ship’s aft section running from about the main zero-gravity passageway to the tail of the ship. The dorsal surfaces were almost entirely destroyed, with the armory as a blown-out shell and the power armor bay in ruins. The detailed scan charted over 40 impact sites for enemy weapons, putting thin red lines on the diagram that showed the penetration. The only surviving portions of the ship were the flooded cargo bay and the medical center, which had been somewhat protected by the armory and its deep location. A few skeletons were visible in the scan.
In YE 31, while alone and conducting a transport mission from Kazumi to the South Gate, Freedom encountered force of four NMX vessels in the System HX-22 area. Damaged in the initial encounter, she was chased on and off, finally arriving in the HX-13 system where the enemy ships caught up with her. In a desperate last move, Chui Mutao attempted to ditch on the system's habitable planet. However, the Mishhuvurthyar ships pummeled the Freedom with so much fire that the ship's three upper decks were reduced to slag, destroying the armory, power armor bay, shuttle bay, main computer, and bridge. The ship hurtled to the surface, out of control. The survivors had to jump out, parachuting into the hostile jungle below…
FREEDOM DOWN was a joint-post based ground forces/survival horror plot run by Wes (“Character death is likely. Good ending is not guaranteed.”). It was open to players eighteen and older only. It was closed early due to poor attendance of JP times. JPs were once a week from 8:30pm to 10:30 EST on Wednesdays in IRC. Players were expected to attend at least 2 of every 3 JPs; players who missed more 2 or more JPs in a row usually had their character meet a terrible fate.
Since the plot began, the following major events occurred:
