She Entered herself into training. Where she underwent standard Star Army of Yamatai training without any issues. She started her career aboard an early Sakura class, stationed as the ships pilot. She never found any reason to be concerned with the fact that she was physically different form the rest of the nekos aboard the ship, it was just who she was. The ship served well, though was kept to the rear during the NMX war. Only engaging is a few small scale battles. Yoshi went up the ranks, showing that she was officer material, she under went officer training aboard and slowly work up the ranks until she was a first officer. When the orders came for her to be transferred to the tenth fleet to command a gunship, she was excited with the ideas of the possibilities.

"To The Stars"

After meeting her new crew and explaining she was here just for the ride to Leo Star Fortress, She relaxed in her cabin reading Through out the next few hours she had interacted with each of the crew members, each by themselves, allowing her to gain better understanding of each of them. When all of the other escorts exploded and a freighter took off trying to run away, Yoshi took command of the Sakishima and lead the crew to a successful operation to bring the stray freighter back to the fold.

"Leo Star Fortress"

Once arriving at Leo, Yoshi left to meet with her new commander. After leaving the offices she bought an air bike and met up with a few of the crew at a bar. after a few drinks she left with Asrid Torsson, drunk and zipping around on the bike they come to an understanding that they both want an relationship. Receiving an emergency notice form Jeeves the ship's AI they return to the bar to find Isa Momoka in a fight with most of the patrons. Making a few hasty plans, Yoshi was able to grab the mini-neko and with Asrid raze to a local Hotel. Before to long Goto met with them and started growing about the whole situation that was caused, Yoshi with Jeeves help solved the major problems. after every one else goes to bed Yoshi and Asrid talk about how to deal with their relationship.

The next morning Asrid and Yoshi were in the tub… ing and Goto stumbles in to take a morning piss. Which lead into a huge fight between Yoshi and Goto over what is appropriate. Yoshi Stormed out and wondered town until she met up with Asrid, after shopping for some cloths, they went to go and buy Condo's for the whole crew, giving them a place to live off ship. Plans for a fancy last night of leave dinner were, made. Yoshi and Goto go to a operations briefing. After Yoshi and Goto talk straightening out a good deal of the problems from that morning. She gave all the keys to Goto to hand out from himself.

Episode 2

Upon arriving at the scene, the YSS Magomi was drifting in space with a pirate boarding shuttle attached to the airlock. When the Sakishima was discovered by the pirates, most of the Magomi's crew was released into deep space and a skirmish ensued. Thankfully, a passenger infantry neko, Simo Anzu was aboard and helped prevent the fight from becoming too protracted while suffering some injury.

With the Magomi back in SAoY hands, her crew safe or recovering, and the dispatch of the pirates; Yoshi After being delayed in joining the Saki by a meeting with the Chusia, which concluded with the construction of the drone fleet. Jumping in to the area the Saki with the drone fleet to augment their forces. Morning came with Jeeves waking the Yoshi with findings of another pirate attack.

The crew woke up to two destroyed civilian ships for breakfast - one a tanker, and another a cruise ship. While half the crew went exploring, only for someone on the away team to locate a nuke. It was a race against time, but Sakishima made it through to a far enough point to handle the blast.

Episode 2.5

However, it seemed the mine was not enough and the fleet ended up in a battle with pirates for brunch. The battle at first seemed overwhelming, but with Asrid's apt use of in combat fold and the weaponized drones things mostly went in the Sakishima's favour. After a long drawn out battle that nearly distroyed the ship, the Sakishima came away victorious.

Interlude 2

After quite the battle and limping the ship back home, The crew were given some much deserved leave. Yoshi took Asrid on a lovely dinner date. Unfortunately, the date was cut short by some problems at the condo complex that sporadically continued on through the next morning.

Interlude 2.5

After a significant refit and repair, the Sakishima is back in action; however it's first mission is a shake down cruise to the home world to deliver cargo and spend Yule “at home”. Asrid took this time to introduce Yoshi to her family. Unfortunately, with all the good intentions the home showed the fractures that had been growing over time, resulting in the couple having to leave early.

Before take-off however, Yoshi had decided to bring Asrid's younger brother, Lars, back with them to help him become a man. An education he could use in spades.

Episode 3 West world or how I decided that sand in my crack sucks.

As the ship traveled back to the Leo station after it's layover on Yamatai, it was attacked and board by cockroaches of doom like proportions. Next thing the crew knew they were in a old western world with wheel guns and screwed up love triangles. there were shooting, sand, and guns for hire that wouldn't hire. After a day or two of sand wars The computer systems went gunny bagged form a huge does of Ich, San, and Potato. Once back aboard the Saki the Cock-ship was destroyed and everyone took hour long showers… (Side note two months later Yoshi still can't get all the sand out of her panties.)

Episode 3.9

Continuing on the way back to Leo Star Fortress Yoshi Took a break from the bridge to go and discuss things with the Kodians medic, Zuyev Gorshkav, Asking him if she would be able to have a child with her special build. As she sat there waiting for the results Asrid came into the Med bay and Yoshi hid. She panicked when Asrid was asking the same question, but of her self. Yoshi didn't want Asrid to feel pressured into things so she panicked and bite her hand.

In her panicked mood Yoshi returned to her Cabin and started going over all of the reports and other things that needed her attention, hopeing to distract her self. That is when Asrid came in with a good mood, the young woman wanted to bring Yoshi a coffee while she did paper work. This pause at in the galley was enough for the captain to get to her quarters to do what she had originally said she was, but spent the time only worrying. When Asrid arrived, things went from happy, to frustrating, to angry as things turned into a fight about what could and could not be done. Eventually the decision was made to talk about it later, after shift, resulting in the pilot not so happily returning to the bridge.

Oddly enough, again without Asrid's knowledge, Yoshi asked the girl's father for permission to marry her, and began working on the paperwork for that. When the time for discussion came again, things eventually were straightened out and the young Minkan accepted her Neko lover's marriage proposal. She also ensured that they both had signed off on the SAOY paperwork required to get command approval for their union. And there Was much Rejoicing…

High from this advancement in their relationship, Asrid and Yoshi got around to talking to Lars about this. Due to some things that happened in the dream world, the boy was nervous about the whole thing, but congratulated them, glad that he hadn't put a wedge between the two of them. Soon, however, things turned to him having wanted to stay on, but his guilt would not allow it and the resulting discussion ended in a fight between him and the captain as well as a black eye for the teen.

Interlude 3

After the results of the previous week and the SAINT interrogation about their ordeal with the bugs, Asrid spent the morning with her guts in knots while she waited for the judgement of their freedom, permission to marry, and how things would continue with Lars. A gaming session did not seem to help much of anything, and seeing her brother's black eye helped even less. However when Yoshi returned from Squadron Command, the words of release were easing and she was at least a little happy about being promoted to Ittô Hei; but not easing enough as she continues to wait on the permission and word on her relationship with her brother.

The other two questions were soon answered. One took a forced conversation with her brother, which later allowed things to settle down between Lars and Yoshi as well. Then, another conversation with her lover about future plans brought about the answer that they truly did have permission to marry. With that, the day finished up with a grand shopping trip that saw Lars get a new gun, and the family a new car.

Episode 4

The leave time was short, but Misato's Passage never takes a day off and there were still pirates to be dealt with. The next morning saw the whole DESRON 2 squadron in a briefing room for their next mission - to take out the base the Sakishima had found last fall. It was time to take the fight to them and make them pay for their crimes.

The plan was to have the squadron's two cruisers take out the major defensive placements while Sakishima and two other Chiaki-class Escort Destroyers took out smaller placements and guided in the Legionaries to allow them to take the station. While this first part went off not too badly, many of the drop ships still got hit badly or destroyed. After dropping off her away team, even the Sakishima got banged up pretty good by a nuke while one of her sister ships was destroyed.

The bridge crew now needed to keep the ship running and fighting while the away team continues their takeover the pirate space station. They took their time to make sure they were alright and ready to go before doing anything suggesting life, then switched on full blast to take out their first target - the one that took out their sister ship. They then continued on to the next and the next, holding the line as the rest of the squadron arrived.

Of course, with all the damage taken, the Sakishima, again, needed repairs and refit resulting in yet another break. Only this time leave was not on Leo station. the Sakishima's crew got dumped off at the last imaginable place in the galaxy for where they were based - Hanako's World.
