Taisho Nakaide, Good Morning.

I've dug up a bit of a mystery, and since it is one of your ships I'd like your direction if I could as this matter involves both of our departments. Here is the initial report.

Director Level Classified​

Missing Starship: 1669121050217.pngYSS Yuurei
IRN: Unregistered
Date Constructed: YE 30
Constructed: Gemini Star Fortress
Order Authorized: Taisho Ketsurui Yui


YSS Yuurei left Vicky in YE 30.3 with her original crew plus an additional from YC-28 (Not sure about the existence of this ship). Sensor networks confirmed the ship was in transit towards the galactic southwest. Tracking systems lost the YSS Yuurei outside of the Bufarks Debris Cloud. The ship was assumed captured by the SMX, which is how it ended up on PEARL's list. Most of the crew was restored from pre-launch backups but no recovery of a soul savior pod was ever made.

Further, from the logs of the YSS Densetsu in YE 34, and Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko, the homing beacon of YSS Yuurei was detected in the Darso System. It was used as a lure by the Nightmare-Type Mishhuvurthyar Angelica.

An interesting note it was later found, in YE 42, that former director Motoyoshi Misato was a traitor, and had been in league with the traitor Motoyoshi Kiyoko who was the one behind the Tange and all their terrorist activities during and after the fall of the United Outer Colonies. Not only was Misato a traitor though, but it also appears most of the crew was involved in traitorous activities relating to the former UOC and the Tange.

This would have been another dead end, but...

In a skirmish outside of the Battle of Glimmergold between the YSS Mazu and the stolen Akuro III ship, the Akuro III was recovered and is currently being overhauled and investigated, according to Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko both the Mishhuvurthyar and then years later the Kuvexians overhauled the ship. During the current investigation and plans to bring the Akuro III back into an operational state, a file was discovered that detailed the YSS Yuurei was indeed still intact, and that it has been stashed somewhere in the cluster to the southeast of the Tsuya Nebula. It was apparently one of Motoyoshi Kiyoko's backup plans if something happened to the Akuro III.

Attached Data
  • YSS Yuurei Schematics and Blueprints - Plumeria 2D
  • YSS Yuurei Launch Statistics and Telemetry
  • File from Akuro III
  • Log of Summary - From Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko
  • File on Motoyoshi Misato and Motoyoshi Kiyoko.


Pending your weigh-in, I'd take part in Task Force 1 to find the YSS Yuurei, but I have a feeling SAINT will want a team on this. I somehow expect to see the Kuvexians or our old friends the Mishhuvurthyar at the other end of this string. I have located one officer, currently in reserve that was recovered from backup. Their backup would have been made after the mission briefing. They are currently in Star Army Reserve, information on Motoyoshi Sayuri has been attached. It appears she stayed with the Motoyoshi here in the Empire and didn't join the traitors it might be fruitful for us to look into her more. Let me know how you think we should proceed.

Every soldier under the command of Star Army Intelligence takes pride in having cleansed these traitors and their kin from our ranks, starting with honored Director Tamahagane's efforts. To learn that the YSS Yuurei may yet survive is of great interest. The YSS Mazu's proclivity for bringing to light what was once shrouded is worthy of SAINT's commendation.

Should the Yuurei be found and a retrieval mission undertaken by PEARL, SAINT will send a team of material retrieval specialists to secure the ship's data and Soul Savior Pod. I have set one such team [Mission Designation: Hakuba] on alert, as well as a collection of support staff, and they stand ready to join any task force formed to pursue this matter.
