When she was done, she was told she'd be serving on a starship. She was assigned to the YSS Hishu a Ke-D2-5b Yui-class Scout as the Science officer. She served on the Hishu until its destruction in YE 27

YE 27 Kohaku was found by the crew of a Poku Saeruo Degonjo vessel. Under their care she recovered from her injuries sustained in the destruction of the Hishu. While onboard the Ikâsasae she established a rapport with Saflea Syali. Working with the scientist they were able to establish reliable communications. Kohaku started learning more about the people who rescued her and their culture.

Her presence aboard the ship represented a threat to the crew. In fact while the ship was on a planet with another group of Poku Saeruo Degonjo, an assassin came onboard and searched the ship. When the assassin found Kohaku they fought and while she succeeded in kill her opponent, she nearly died herself.

Studying the history of the clan, and their laws she found a way to protect her friends, and keep from being a prisoner. At her insistence she became a Râyjo Vonai (Bound People) to Saflea Syali. The status was something that the authorities could not refute. She remained on the ship or at one of the outposts when the ship returned home.

YE 29 After more than a year of her status as a bound person, her petition to take the Baqnor (move from youth) was approved. Her Bagnor went well until the final event. During the hunt she was attacked by a rogue Qaktoro, despite her injuries she completed the trial and was declared a Poku'vonai.

After her appointment, she started spending time with the Ryauos'te (Living Spirit) of Poku'vonai from different times to allow her to draw upon more of the heritage and customs.

YE 34 Kohaku monitored the events in the sector specifically regarding the Yamatai Star Empire. She continued her forays into the past, and spent time working with her crew for when she would make her journey.

YE 36 Kohaku attended the International Relations Conference of YE 36 on Yamatai (Planet). While it afforded her the opportunity to meet with several new species, the conference was considered a failure by her and the Poku Saeruo Degonjo by the enactment of Defense Arrangement Treaty (of the) Alliance of Signatory States.
