HS-SS2-1a Ytaqo'a (Gatherer) - Class Ship

The Ytaqo'a (Gatherer) class is the main cargo craft of the Poku Saeruo Degonjo, this design has been in use since 720CY (YE 11).

About the Ytaqo'a class

The Yataqo'a design is fundamentally the same as before the Norka (The Exodus). But minor improvements have been as newer technologies are developed. The current design has been in use since 720 CY. They are essentially large cargo ships. The ship has four large storage bays that can be removed.

Ytaqo'a Class


The Ytaqo'a is a large rather boxy design. The majority of the space is for storage for various types. Four plasma drives that provide propulsion for STL travel are seen by the aft. The clamping mechanisms for the cargo modules can be seen running along the ventral and dorsal line. Located by each clamp is a Akko Rotysa (Coil Gun). Six Tomin-anoi (Windows) can be seen on the upper half of the forward section. The Ytaqo'a is painted in the traditional clan scheme.

The first Ytaqo'a were used during the Norka (The Exodus), they were the ships that would gather supplies for the refugee fleet. The design is relatively unchanged since then, with the exception being system upgrades. The original Ytaqo'ai (Gatherers) were unarmed. Life in the new Kikyo sector necessitated the addition of defense weaponry.

Lower Deck

Lower Deck


The Ytaqo'a has two Niu'te Ruo'sa (Airlock)s on the lower deck of the forward module. An EVA locker is contained next to each. There is another Niu'te Ruo'sa (Airlock) located on the aft section between the engines. This airlock is only used when the drives are not active. Typically for repairs, maintenance and inspections.

Brain Room

The Ytaqo'a has a Jodau Ruo'sa (Brain Room).


The Ytaqo'a has a Jyaon Ruo'sa Sa (Small Bridge).

Cargo Module

There are four of these modules carried by the Yatqo'a. There is a 10 meter wide ramp in the bottom that lowers to allow loading and unloading. The module is divided into two levels with lifts for moving cargo onto the upper levels. There are doors on inside that connect with the ship to allow access to ship.

Dimensions (External)

  • Length: 65 m (213.2 ft)
  • Height: 10 m (32.8 ft)
  • Width: 35 m (114.8 ft)

Divine Room

The Ytaqo'a features a small Siama Ruo'sa (Divine Room), sufficient for small gathering of the faithful.


The Ytaqo'a has a standard Nyora'a Ruo'sa (Engineering) in the aft section.

Fuel Storage

The Ytaqo'a has a Wunyli Gianaka (Fuel Storage) room. The tanks hold enough fuel to resupply the reactors four times. This was deemed sufficient for a non-warship. It is located on the lower deck next forward of engineering.


This is the long narrow portion of the Ytaqo'a that the cargo modules attack to the sides of. It is ten meters wide by seven meters high. Most of this space is structural. A pair of corridors runs the length of this section, with an emergency pressure section halfway which keeps the entire section from decompressing if part is damaged.

Eating Room

The Gianate Ruo'sa (Eating Room) is located on the lower deck. Food is brought from the Giana Ruo'sa (Galley) in the aft section and kept in warmers.

Life Support

The Ytaqo'a has a Damira Ruo'sa (Environmental Room). It is located on the lower deck next forward of engineering.

Medical Bay

The Ytaqo'a has a standard Wapoin Rou'sa (Medical Room) without the isolation room.


The Ytaqo'a has a medium size Gianate Ruo'sa (Eating Room) where the crew gathers for their meals. There is a Giana Ruo'sa (Galley) located next to the mess for food preparation. The scullery is located next to both and has an entrance to both for used items to be brought in for cleaning.


The Ytaqo'a uses Kâurikâ Goa (Horizontal Corridors) and Kâurâdor Goa (Vertical Passages). These passageways run through the decks of the ship vertically as well as horizontally.

There are a number of Lekaokâur (Crawl way) used by the crew for maintenance.


The Ytaqo'a has ten Âvona Uospa'te Ruo'sa (Two Person Room) for the crew, and two Ta'a Uospa'te Ruo'sa (Leader Room) with Fofinor Ta'a (Leader Bath) for the leaders.

There are two Fofinor Abuka (Communal Bath) for use by the general crew and passengers. There are four Fofinor Hapu (Hand Baths) provided for crew use.

Shield Room

The Ytaqo'a has a single Anoka Ruo'sa (Shield Room) for overseeing the ship's defenses.

Water Processing

The Ytaqo'a has a compact Kya Norjopa Ruo'sa (Water Processing Room) on the lower deck of the forward section that provides clean water for the crew.

Armored Hull

The Ytaqo'a is built on a Saemâqi (Star Metal) frame and is covered in Mâqirây (Bound Metal) plating of .5 meters.


The Ytaqo'a has the standard Ta'te Goly Norjopa (Far Talking Systems).


The Ytaqo'a is equipped with a Jodau Yoqajo (Integrated Brain) or Jodau Sumanâjo (Synthetic Brain). Typically ships with more senior crew will have opt for the Jodau Yoqajo (Integrated Brain).

Landing Gear

The Ytaqo'a is equipped with four Ikâ'te Bapa (Landing Foot) externally mounted. These are used when the ship lands on a planet or in a ship bay for loading.

Life Support

The Ytaqo'a has the full set of Damira Norjopa (Environmental Systems).


The Ytaqo'a is outfitted with the following propulsion Poku Saeruo Degonjo developed systems.

The Ytaqo'a is equipped with a class D Tinvyma Movidoanor (Tunnel Drive).


The Ytaqo'a is equipped with Heim Gravity Generators for planetary propulsion.


The Ytaqo'a is equipped with six clusters of Gean Vymasa (Ion Thruster) for attitude control and station keeping.


The Ytaqo'a has the standard Tinsae Mâbor'a (Starship Sensors).



On the Ytaqo'a there are six Tomin-anoi (Windows) present on the forward section upper deck. The are most often used while the ship is on planet or in orbit above a world to be harvested. They are in public areas so that all can enjoy them.


The Ytaqo'a is armed for its own defense. It does not count as a warship.
