Shugosha I

Shugosha I is the first planet in the Shugosha System; it is part of the Yamatai Star Empire.

About Shugosha I

The planet was discovered and explored by the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet in YE 30. It was quickly colonized by the fleet but when the United Outer Colonies took control of the system later that year, a story of unfortunate circumstances began to playout for the colonies located on this resource-rich terrestrial world. Shugosha I has a toxic unbreathable atmosphere and is incapable of supporting life outside of the dome colonies and sealed habitats. The government of the United Outer Colonies decided that the neighboring Siren System had a higher priority for development and despite the riches, the system possessed it was left by the wayside.

In YE 33 when the NMX attacked the United Outer Colonies the colonies on Shugosha I were ravaged, thousands of workers and their families lost their lives. Even after the Yamatai Star Empire regained control of the region after the war, progress was slow for recovery and empty promises seemed almost unending even though the situation had improved. In YE 42, the Yugumo Corporation declared the system was valuable, almost as valuable as the neighboring Siren System and the Motoyoshi Clan pushed for new construction and expansion to begin immediately. Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko included the System in her Defense Plans, and made a promise to the people of Shugosha that they would never be undefended or left to their own devices so long as she had influence.

The Industrial Planet

Shugosha I is an important industrial planet.

In YE 42, the Yugumo Corporation established a new heavy industrial colony called Keiyล City. It is a key manufacturing and industrial location for the Yugumo Corporation, Ketsurui Fleet Yards and other corporations in the Star Army Military Industrial Complex. In that same year, the Star Army of Yamatai opened Fate Bastion to defend Keiyล City and other colonies on the planet.

Places to Explore or Salvage

Shugosha I has some interesting places as described below.

Crashed NMX Ship

At the end of the Second Mishhuvurthyar War, a Blrakkrashiverinth Battleship crash-landed on the surface of Shugosha I after being severely damaged in combat. Its debris is spread across a rocky basin near one of the planet's methane oceans. It is unknown what the contents or state of the vessel's remains are. It has been unexplored and untouched since YE 34.

Abandoned Mining Colony

An unnamed mining colony under designation Shugosha X55 was partially complete when the United Outer Colonies left the Yamatai Star Empire in YE 30. The United Outer Colonies never took an interest in the incomplete project and the site was abandoned. The state of the colony or anything inside is not known at this time.

Unknown Structure

An unknown structure dated approximately 2100 years before the establishment of the Yamatai Star Empire is located in the southern hemisphere. The structure is of unknown origin and is composed of elements not common to the Kagami Galaxy. The structure has not been studied outside of the original scans completed by the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet in YE 30.

Orbital Assets

The Star Army of Yamatai established a "Guriddo" Defense System as part of the Shugosha System Defense Plan laid out by Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko in YE 42. The system includes:

The planet also has an orbiting network of Emrys Satellites for communications that were deployed by the Star Army of Yamatai in YE 36.
