Plot Overview

In YE 41, Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko was ordered by Ketsurui Yui to rebuild the First Expeditionary Fleet for the Star Army of Yamatai. For years Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko had toiled to rebuild and reunify the Motoyoshi Clan and had sought to bring her daughter Motoyoshi Kiyoko to justice for the events that had shattered the clan in YE 30 and had created the United Outer Colonies, as well as countless war crimes against the Empire and it's citizens. Katsuko makes her valiant return to the Yugumo Cluster along with the members of her clan in hopes of it finally becoming the home that they had intended to build after the fall of Taiie.

The plot focuses on missions centered around the First Expeditionary Fleet, Motoyoshi Clan and is a mix of character interaction and other different mission profiles. The plot is presented in episodes with companion stories connected to each main episode.
