YSS Resurgence

YSS Resurgence (IRN NG-S1-575) is a Fuji-class Expeditionary Gunship serving in the Star Army of Yamatai's First Fleet. It is home of the Resurgence Of Yamatai roleplaying campaign, which won the 2022 Simulation Cup for Outstanding Original Scifi!1).


The Resurgence was part of a series of starships built at Ketsurui Star Fortress at the end of the Kuvexian War to bolster the losses from the massive Third Battle Of Nataria and Battle Of Glimmergold. As the First Fleet continued to expand and become the Star Army's main fleet, the types of units in it diversified and included more ships capable of long-range, extended deployment including the Fuji-class Expeditionary Gunship. Fabrication of parts and crew selection by Star Army Personnel Command for the YSS Resurgence began in YE 42.9 and was completed in YE 43.1.

Launched without ceremony, it was immediately deployed on an important post-war survey mission to examine the war's effects on the sector and cleanup remaining enemy forces.

YE 43

In YE 43, YSS Resurgence conducted PEARL rescue missions to retrieve personnel and Yamataian citizens who had been left behind on Hanako's World. It also visited White Harbor Station.

In YE 43.6, the YSS Resurgence returned to Yamatai (Planet) and then visited White Harbor Station in the Anisa system2). While there they rescued a Senti named Morivai Janik from a damaged spaceship3).

In YE 43.7, Resurgence began her fourth mission4), escorting cargo ships carrying humanitarian aid. The ship first traveled to Nataria, then to Tatiana, and then Darso, where it boarded and destroyed one Kuvexian Ex-Navy ship and saw cargo delivered, and took prisoners. Then Resurgence went to the An Rhy (Valaad) system to escort another cargo delivery mission.

In YE 43.8, Resurgence returned to Yamatai (Planet) for repairs and the crew was able to attend the Candy Festival of YE 435).

YE 44

In 44.2, the Resurgence visited Pisces Station prior to the International Relations Conference Of YE 44. While on Pisces, the crew got a a tip from a mysterious secret agent named Paul that allowed them to locate the Tr'Pocka System, where a secret Nepleslian private research vessel named SS Spark was left adrift in orbit of a machine planet. The Resurgence sent an away team over where they found the ship had been disabled by and infected by boarders from the machine planet, in the form of computronium mechanical constructs that could take over computer systems–essentially walking computer viruses. The Resurgence evacuated its personnel and one survivor and destroyed the Spark.

The Resurgence returned to Pisces Station in YE 44.3 and Captain Aoba participated in the International Relations Conference6) while the enlisted crew had a pub night7)

In YE 44.5, the Resurgence visited Sood Zadra to seek information about machine planets in coreward space.

In YE 44.6, the ship went to coreward space to investigate a machine planet, Samurr, and captured it for use by Nagashun.

In YE 44.7, Resurgence helped move refugees during the Arrival of the Norians.

In YE 44.8, the Resurgence crew participated in the Candy Festival of YE 44 in YE 44.9.

Member of the YSS Resurgence attended the Year-End Holiday Festival in Kyoto.

YE 45

In YE 45.1, the Resurgence launched from Central Fleet Depot and went to Darso, but then turned around to visit Gashmere in response to a recent terror attack. The chief science officer was confined to quarters for questioning by order of the Empress of Yamatai and Ketsurui Yui.

The Resurgence then space-folded to Kepler's Find to explore it. It was the first YSE starship to do so. After collecting samples of artificial life from the surface and the sea below using a drill, the ship moved to Shirakawa no Iori in the Ahmar star system.8). An away team from the Resurgence discovred an underground cave/bunker complex on the surface, and evidence that some of the Seelie species had survived, but that they had been recently been taken by Kuvexian pirates to sell into slavery. The Resurgence also found a Kuvexian shuttle owned by a rival Kuvexian group, and a lone robotic survivor named Mitalar Sevinna, who the Resurgence recruited for intelligence on the pirates. Due to the size of pirate forces, the Resurgence then returned to Nataria to get a second Fuji-class Gunship from the Nataria Fleet Depot. The Resurgence dispatched a portion of the crew to man the YSS Renaissance under commander of Benna. The two ships then set off for the Kazumi, passing through Koenic, Ah Rhy, through Wazu Corridor into Old Mishhuvurthyar Space and Higaflan. After arriving at Kazumi, the ship sent a team to infiltrate the frigate ISS Garrik Sylbella and stole data from its main computer.

In YE 45.4, the Resurgence went on a mission to find and rescue the YSS Wakaba. Using Star Army Intelligence intelligence reports, fragmented distress calls, and tips, the ship proceeded to the galactic “north” past Iromakuanhe space and found a star system containing tachyon anomalies and at least one wormhole to a distant location. The system was occupied by the Mishhuvurthyar and the ship was attacked and boarded by them. In response, the Second Fleet attacked the system in force and the Resurgence and YSS Renaissance used this distraction to enter the wormhole where they were able to discover the YSS Wakaba downed on a planet. When the Resurgence was attacked by Mishhuvurthyar forces, the crew managed to steal the main reactor from a Mishhuvurthyar cruiser, allowing the Wakaba to make a narrow escape back into space just as a massive Mishhuvurthyar dreadnought struck its former location with a devastating anti-planetary weapon. The 3 Star Army ships escaped through the wormhole by rushing through the emerging Mishhuvurthyar fleet, emerging at the battle site on the other side9). Afterwards, the crew assisted in recovery operations10).

In YE 45.5, the Resurgence crew participated in the Kikyō No Sekku parade in Kyoto.

In YE 45.6, YSS Resurgence went through a wormhole to discover a huge apparently abandoned station11). As fate would have it, the expedition led to the discovery of a long-forgotten civilization, igniting a spark of curiosity and cautious interaction among the team. The crew, with a blend of eagerness and caution, initiated contact with the remnants of the ancient civilization “Concordia,” which had been preserved in stasis many years ago to escape a with hostile AI war machines. The unfolding events were a blend of science, diplomacy, and potential alliances, widening the horizons for the Star Army of Yamatai.

As the crew delved deeper, a confrontation with menacing adversaries known as Rippers awaited them. The ensuing battle showcased the agility and resolve of the Star Army soldiers, who valiantly faced the threat with unyielding determination. The combat was fierce, yet the indomitable spirit of the crew prevailed against the odds. However, the battle left some wounded, calling for immediate medical attention. Poppy, the medic, swiftly attended to the needs of the injured, showcasing the readiness and adeptness in providing critical care. The wounded, including Okimi and Pidole, were stabilized thanks to Poppy's timely intervention, underscoring the importance of prompt medical response in such perilous situations.12).

This expedition exemplified the essence of exploration, bravery, and camaraderie among the Star Army of Yamatai. The tales of valor and the unraveling of ancient mysteries continue to echo through the annals of the Star Army, signifying the boundless possibilities that await in the cosmos.

Post their adventurous Mission 9, the YSS Resurgence crew engaged in rearmament and preparation for future endeavors. A casual dinner gathering turned into a significant discussion led by supply specialists Beryl Leyton and Hachirobei Sakuko, concerning equipment upgrades. Beryl initiated a conversation on equipment enhancements based on the previous mission's experiences, presenting an opportunity for the crew to compile a wishlist while the Star Army's exploratory enthusiasm was at its peak. Highlighting the initiative, Beryl revealed the introduction of Star Army Explorer Uniforms and a new fleet of shuttles, marking a significant step towards bolstering the crew's readiness for upcoming missions13).

In YE 45.8, the crew of YSS Resurgence took to the stars on Mission 10, departing from the Central Fleet Depot. Upon liftoff, a mission briefing was held in the wardroom, orchestrated by Erika alongside Mineko. The objective was laid out: to investigate a planet known as Mwigflukbajik, believed to harbor a Mishhuvurthyar facility containing valuable assets. The mission was sparked by SAINT's initiative to delve deeper into the Mishhuvurthyar threat, with a focus on exploring hidden secrets of a planet with a profound historical significance to the Yamatai Star Empire14). After some exploration, the crew discovered former slaves in one of the few surviving facilities and evacuated them to the ship. These refugees were able to provide the location of a hidden NMX facility.

YE 46


In YE 46.2, the YSS Resurgence visited Koenic15).


The Resurgence is painted in a special livery based on the flag of the Yamatai Star Empire. It is Star Army Regal Blue with a white stripe down the centerline, which has a red border.


The Star Army started to gather a crew even before the ship was built.
