Fleet Command,

Myself, as the commander of the Bastion of Winter and my crew will prepare to depart within the allotted timeframe immediately. Non mission critical personnel and individuals designated under Code: Precious Cargo will be returned to safe harbor and all shuttlecraft will be secured and stowed for use in mission operations.

Internal supply manifest follows as attachment. Please advise additional requirements for mission critical tasks so that requisitions may be fulfilled. (I.e., additional coms or survival gear).

Commencing preparations immediately.

The YCS Bastion of Winter Shuttle Bay: One Hour, Fifteen Minutes after Acknowledging Orders

"Mama?" Lisa cocked her head to one side and stepped behind her mother's anthroform drone assistant, Mishitari. Staring out from behind the KAIMON Ascendant Consort's legs, the Daur child regarded the uniformed officers from the Yugumo Keisatsu security team, Keibi protection specialists both, with suspicion. The gentle-seeming Minkan woman in bright, fanciful, casual clothing that was with them got little better of a response, even when she got down on her knees to Lisa's level. Unfortunately, no vetted Shukaren Daur employees were available to accompany her. A significant plurality, just shy of a majority, of the Shukaren expatriates in Yamatai worked for Yugumo, owing to the long border shared by the Motoyoshi Colonial Sector with the Kingdom of Neshaten, and most of those were already crew aboard the ship. With a few singular exceptions, the others all worked at the Jiyuu Tinacen School, where Lisa was headed, but didn't understand what was meant.

Lisa looked up at Cecily, nimbly ducking and weaving to avoid Mishitari's attempts to lift her up. "Mama, why do I have to leave the ship?" the child asked once more, fleeing the radius of Mishitari's arms to the tree-trunk leg of Ástríðr "Astrid" Skaðisdóttir, the Custodian War drone Cecily had won in the Salvage Lottery. "I like it here! I can do it!"

It's regretful, really. The timing on sudden orders, the need to ensure safekeeping of absolutely integral peoples in her life. Her daughter especially. Cecily wouldn't hesitate to glass a planet for her family, 'needs of the many versus the needs of the few' be damned. "Stand down," she uses her corporate voice with the assistants and security officers. She places her fingertips on the Minkan woman's shoulder, gently and nonverbally letting her know she's dismissed. "I don't doubt that you can do it, my darling daughter," Cecily starts, her tails floofing out behind her. The tall fox-woman's demeanor has softened from that firm tone she'd just used, and she kneels down next to Lisa.

"But you know that mommy has important business to do sometimes for Yugumo and the Empire as a whole." She leans in and bumps noses with the small fox, bringing her arms around the girl so she can lift her up into them and hold her daughter close. "Also, if you're on the ship while I'm going off into deep space, I can't bring you home any surprises that I find, now can I?" she teases the little fox.

"And while you're in school, you can tell all of your friends that your mother is going to bring you presents from some far-off planet," she states gently, ensuring she spills as few details as possible. Then she gives Mishitari a knowing nod and simply starts to walk towards the shuttle's boarding ramp. "I will be personally accompanying my daughter, and the rest of you bound for our home station. There should be ample time to be there and back while departure preparations continue. If I can spend a few more hours with my daughter before we go, then my heart will feel lighter and filled with joy as we begin our voyage."

Cecily smiles and kisses the tip of Lisa's nose, her tails coming up to curl warmly around her daughter's small frame with loving affection. "If anyone has any objections, voice them now. We are on a strict timetable."

"Well, it did say underway in 18 hours, not that we had to be there in 18 hours..." Mishitari conceded, while the crew looked unsurely at one another. Mishitari looked up at Cecily and was about to speak when the holographic form of Shiroko, the Ship AI, appeared suddenly in their midst and interrupted her, startling a couple of crew near ground zero of her appearance.

"We're already underway back to Port Jiyuu. Estimate three standard hours." Apparently the ship hadn't waited to be told what to do. She certainly began to show more initiative after the computer systems were upgraded. "We can just take the teacher and security back with us. Waypoints are set for immediate embarkation to System E-13 after Jiyuu waypoint."

Lisa looked relieved that she was being accompanied, but it was soon replaced by return of the indignation that she should have to wait at all and not go along. "Mamaaaaaa..."
