SYNC Threads


These modifications have been made which vary from the original design of the Princess Class Yacht.

Internal Security

Internally, there are enough pop-out automated weapons turrets positioned as to cover the entire interior with at least three of them able to aim at any one spot, with no blind spots or effective cover. These weapons are equivalent to a TC Type 33/C Nekovalkyrja Service Pistol each, but draw power directly from the ship's power systems4). They are capable of firing in lethal and nonlethal modes, independently of each other. They are not capable of firing at targets outside of the ship. Additionally, hidden, armored vaults in strategic places around the ship contain actual TC Type 33/C Nekovalkyrja Service Pistols, ready to open at the mental command of an authorized person5).

Hidden Drone Berths

Four Yugumo Standard Anthroform Drone Berth are on each deck, fore and aft, in pairs with a storage unit between each pair. There are two in the Master Suite and two on the bridge. Designed to house EM-J6-1 "Rayleigh" security drones with Medical and Commander packages, they are masterfully concealed behind panels in such a way that their deployment cannot be obstructed. They carry Personal Defense Shield "Svalinn" Tower shields with the Solid Volumetrics and Electric Stun System options, and are “armed” with an OI-W32-1a Magic Handin addition to their wakizashi, as well as a TC Type 33/C Nekovalkyrja Service Pistol with a YB-28A Triple-Power Magazine, EM-W4 Stun Baton, a EM-G16-2a First Aid Kit, and a set of Emrys Industries Electromagnetic Manacles on a Star Army Utility Belt, Type 326).

Modified Systems

Some of the systems of the ISS Haru-no-Hanabi have been modified or upgraded from the original design of the ship.

Computer Upgrades

The Haru-no-Hanabi's 'Destiny' AI System has been upgraded from the "Knight" Suite to the "Queen" Suite. To accommodate this, a full Node (10) of X-type Quantum Computers have been added to the system room for additional computing power, along with the upgraded sensor suite. The upgrade to the Destiny AI "Queen" Suite allows the ship to support a Mimic Computer avatar.

Backup Power Systems

As fallback or ancillary power generation systems, a pair of HONEY SLAM fusion generators with quadruple fuel supplies have been installed.


Other than the general increase in luxury from the Chairman Upfit Package, the functionality of some rooms have been changed or extended.

Volumetrics Room

The Recreation Room on the ISS Haru-no-Hanabi has been upgraded with systems similar to the volumetrics room on a Plumeria-class (2E) Medium Gunship. The room's walls, ceiling, and floor are all Volumetric Windows coated with anti-scuff coatings, and the Volumetric Displays in the room are capable of projecting Solid Volumetrics, as well as Hard Light (Technology) thanks to an array of IRI-Type Hard light Apparatus. The Volumetrics Room is intended for recreation, training, and briefings. Force fields have been added to provide tactile feedback to simulations as well as to slide people back imperceptibly when they try to walk too close to a wall or change elevation. In this way, simulations larger than the room would normally permit are possible and can be safely employed. Simulations can also make people appear and sound further away than they are and nudge them away from collisions with each other if necessary to further add to the illusion.

Weapon Add-Ons

The ISS Haru-no-Hanabi is not a warship, but its weapons complement has been upgraded to to defend itself in an emergency.

Besides the two Ionic Pulse Cannon (that come stock with the Princess Class Yacht), the ship has been outfitted with a Phased-Array laser system. The space-saving, flexible design of phased array ships means the beams can come from anywhere on the hull and is well protected from missile attacks due to the wide array of point defense options this provides. The ship's weapons complement is as follows:


The necessary operators to crew the ship are provided by Takeda Fleet. In addition there are two androids that are the ship’s avatar and ship’s cat.


Vehicle Storage

The ship is serviced by two shuttles, and keeps a utility ground vehicle in its vehicle storage.


Ground Vehicles

Special Items

There are a few particularly interesting items lying around the Haru-no-Hanabi.
