The first ship designed and built by Nayacesen Industrials, designed to serve either as a short range mining vessel or to compliment a mining fleet. It entered civilian service in YE 33
The Yimeya was built for the purpose of giving people with a low budget a chance at mining lucrative belts of asteroids. The ship has a modest cargohold and a single mining based off of, and improved upon, the Kozan. The ship features a small crew count for its size.
After Nayacesen Industrials was created, Takeyu had passed along plans for the Yimeya to his Vice-President, Mason Petryia , to study and later build. The Yimeya was floating around in Takeyu's head for years, and was a ship he had originally intended to build to help supplement his families mining. At the time, the Yimeya wasn't intended to have weapons or modest armor plating, but the designs were changed after Mason had a look at them and realized that - because of the kind of world they live in and due to the ever increasing threat of the NMX and pirates, the ship needed weapons.
Because the Yimeya was intended to be a civilian craft available to others on a budget, the ship can be ordered custom with with or without weapons but also with additions added onto the ship. It's external hull has latch points for additional cargo modules, mining modules, or even sensor packages for locating those tough to find mineral deposits or perhaps to serve as a way to detect possible hostiles. Naturally, a stripped down version of the ship is the cheapest, while a ship with all of the fittings is the most expensive.
The Yimeya's appearance is a long ship with a large rear engine section to provide optimal thrust. It's forward section is rounded off houses the ships many electronics, including its single mining beam. It also has four protruding engines.
Class: Yimeya-class Nomenclature: Ni-Y1-1A Type: Mining Vessel Designers: Nayacesen Industrials Manufacturer: Geshrinari Shipyards Price: 23,000 KS (Without customizations)
Crew: 4-10 (Can be operated by two people) Passengers: 14-19 Maximum Capacity: 30 Emergency Capacity: In the event of an emergency, the ship can hold 129 people, but it would be exthremely cramped. This number is incremented by thirty depending on additional cargo modules.
Length: 145 meters Width: 50 meters Height: 40 meters Decks: 3 (4 meters each)
When cargoholds are not full, the Yimeya is a very nimble ship due to the many small menuvering thrusters located across its hull.
Service Lifespan: Estimated 30 years of constant use, with refits.
Refit Cycle: Frequent minor updates through refits once every four to five years.
See Damage Rating (Version 3) for an explanation of the damage system.
The Yimeya uses a Geshrinari Compact Bridge which is located toward the forward area of the ship
The Yimeya uses the Geshrinari Cargo Bay for storing onboard repair components or resources harvested from the ships mining beam.
The Yimeya has a Geshrinari Standard Computer Room located behind the bridge.
The Yimeya has four Geshrinari Standard Crew Quarters located toward the rear of the ship nearest the shuttle bay.
There's only one Geshrinari Common Bath and its located between the crew quarters for easy access.
There's two Geshrinari Common Toilet's, one located rear of the ship and another located forward near the bridge.
The Yimeya has a Geshrinari Standard Engineering in the aft section of the ship.
The Yimeya's Geshrinari Galley is located right beside the Dining Room, on the starboard side.
The Yimeya has a downsized version of the Geshrinari Dining Room located in the rear center of the ship just ahead of the crew quarters.
There is a Geshrinari Ship's Laundry on right behind the crew quarters.
The ships Geshrinari Life Support Room system is located in a secured compratment in front of the shuttle bay.
The Yimeya is equipped with a Geshrinari Medical Bay that is located between the bridge and the ships forward cargohold.
The Yimeya is equipped with a Geshrinari Standard Shuttle Bay located starboard of the ships main engines, it has room for only a single shuttle.
Horizontal movement on the Yimeya is by Geshrinari Corridors.
Located toward the forward area of the Yimeya is a lounge for crewmembers to either observe the ship mining or to just enjoy the scenary, the lounge's window has a sheet of armor that slides down over it when the ship comes under attack.
The Yimeya uses a Geshrinari Shipyards designed armor hull. The hull is composed .5 meters of overlapping durandium plating. The frame of the ship is Durandium Alloy. All windows on the Henkei are made of Transparent Durandium.
The Yimeya primary defense is a Geshrinari Combined Field System.
For ships sold to the Star Army of Yamatai they come equipped with a Kessaku Systems Compact Integrated Electronics System (CIES) computer and sensors.
For ships sold to organizations outside of the Star Army of Yamatai, Geshrinari Shipyards provides their own computer system.
The Yimeya uses the Ge-Y2-E3300 - Hogosha Quantum Computer System
Uses the Ge-Y2-E3302 - Communications Suite
The Yimeya is equipped with a Ge-Y1-E3103 - Intercom System.
The ship is equiped with four module points that serve to connect the modules to the main ship to provide power and transfer of minerals or cargo. Each module point has eight additional locking points to help keep a module locked in place.
The Yimeya has a Ge-Y1-V3100 - Life Support System.
The ship uses a Geshrinari Aether Generator as the main reactor, powering all of the ships onboard systems
Along with the Aether is a Geshrinari Fusion Generator that is used to provide additional power to systems, but also, used to power the ships weapons, shields, and mining equipment.
The Yimeya uses a Geshrinari Combined Field System for primary propulsion.
The Yimeya uses a Geshrinari Hyperspace Fold Drive for long distance travel.
The Yimeya uses two Geshrinari Continuum Distortion Drives mounted in parallel for STL and atmospheric travel.
The Yimeya uses Geshrinari Maneuvering Thrusters clusters for keeping steady during mining operations but also for use in docking and station keeping.
The Yimeya has three Ni-Y1-W3300 - Anti-Ship Turrets mounted one on top, two on the bottom.
Damage Rating (Version 3) of 2 SDR
The Yimeya, although it comes with a modest cargohold for storing harvested minerals, has additional modules it can equip to better perform its assigned role. Each module draws power from the Yimeya, but that can be changed if the customer decides to have a power module equiped, which helps take a load off the ships main reactor and also improves on its mining yield. Please note, there are plans in place to develop other modules for the Yimeya, but the following are the most basic
All Modules can be jettisoned in the event of an emergency.
These modules are designed to take up a single space on the ship, allowing for up to four modules to be accomondated. A customer can request that two modules be designed together so as to take up 'two' spots, but this currently limited to the cargohold and cargo/mining modules. At current, the ship can only support 'two' mining modules due the mining beams being located on the forward sections. The power module is also one of those modules with a limited amount of slots, currently only one can be added to the ship, this is because it can output a large amount of power and thus only one is needed.
Nayacesen Industrials has placed a restriction on the Defense Modules, allowing only 'two' to be placed on ships sold to other parties. This exception is lifted toward the Star Army of Yamatai.
|Module||Cost||Number to Fit|
A module dedicated to the refining of mined ore, see module page for details
The Yimeya mining module adds an additional mining laser on the Yimeya along with some additional cargo-space, the module is equiped with a single mining laser. It draws power from the ships main reactor. It has a miniature refinary onboard.
For more details, see the module page.
A cargo module that increases the amount of storage space of the ship, see the module page for more information.
A module that increases the power of the ship, can be used in conjunction with other modules. See module page for more information.
Dedicated to defense, the module provided an additioanl three turrets along with a graviton beam. See module page for more information.
