The Midori-Class Scout ship is named after Ketsurui Yui-Taisho's daughter Ketsurui Midori. The designers felt that if the ship was to replace the Yui-class Scout series of scouts that were named after the Taisho that the replacement should be named after one of her daughters. The design features new sensory capabilities and a radical change in weapon load from its predecessors.
The Midori-Class is a flattened oval with two large engine nacelles. Its hull is Star Army blue, and has the Star Army Hinomaru on the top. An airlock is visible on the port side, and aft are the four sensor arrays. On the top can be seen the two positron cannons, and on the bottom are the four torpedo tubes.

The Midori-Class is a fast vessel.
This ship is equipped with Anti-FTL field countermeasures.
The Midori-Class as a ship intended to operate without support, it is built with ease of maintenance in mind and is very durable, particularly its frame and main electrical systems.
See Damage Rating (Version 3) for an explanation of the damage system.

The primary avionics for the Midori-class are located in the bow on deck one. It is accessed by two maintenance hatches in front of the bridge.
The Midori's bridge is a Standard Small Starship Bridge set in a reinforced bulkhead area. Access to the consoles for maintenance is done through maintenance hatches, and these lead into the Avionics area.
The Midori-class has crew accommodations for fourteen. They run parallel to the wardroom along the outside of the deck. They consist of:
The Midori-Class has a six person Communal Toilet on deck one for use by the rest of the crew. It is located on the starboard side opposite the medbay.
The Midori-Class has a six person Communal Shower on deck one for use by the rest of the crew. It is located on the port side opposite the medbay.
The Midori-class has all the features of a Standard Star Army Engineering Bay, but is laid out differently. The main control area of the engineering section is located on deck two, and houses the primary and secondary generators.
This area is where the Midori-Class's FTL and STL drives are located. They are accessible from both decks, but the primary access it through the lower deck.
The Midori-Class features a modified Sakura-type Medical Laboratory, which includes the following enhancements:
The following optional item can be installed to assist medical personnel.
The Midori-Class has a compact shuttle bay, that has an internal space of 12m x 10m x 5m. The bay opens at the top and the two halves lower and slide into the over deck. Along the three walls are a series of lights that depending on the conditions outside the shuttle bay they illuminate the bay in either white or red light. The floor is glossy black, and has an illuminated grid pattern to assist with landing. During deployments the two Star Army Tool Lockers are secured to the forward wall.
It can hold the following a single Ke-T7 "Raccoon" Transport Shuttle shown above. Or it can hold up to three Ke-T8 "Kuma" Multi-role Shuttles. Typically only two are stored but it is possible to house three with a meter of space around each.
The Midori-Class has a standard Standard Star Army Wardroom located just aft of the bridge. It serves as one of the main social areas available on the ship. There are two Single Toilets in the wardroom for the convenience of the crew.
These are the rear firing torpedo tubes are located. They are on deck two in the rear. Unlike the forward tubes, these aft tubes can not change out warheads. That requires a technician to manually make the change.
The Midori does not have a dedicated power armor bay; instead it uses a Armor Storage Rack (Type 31) with a capacity for eight suits. This room is located near the airlock.
The Midori has a cargo area with most of the standard cargo area features. There is a small lift capable of holding a SSCC-Medium. The Cargo area floor space including the lift is roughtly 16 meters by 14 meters.
The Midori-Class features a docking airlock. Beyond the outer door is a sloped floor for use when the ship is on the ground. An extending ramp comes out below this part of the airlock and blends into it. This allows personnel to easily walk up to the airlock. The airlock is also how power armor exit and enter the ship. During armor operations an atmosphere shield is engaged and both of the airlock doors remain open.
The Midori-class fabrication area is located to port of the computer room. The fabrication area provides the means for the crew to repair and maintain all ship systems and vehicles.
This is where the forward torpedo tubes are located. They are on deck two in the bow. There is an autoloader mechanism that holds an additional three torpedoes per tube. The autoloader system can also change out the warhead prior to loading
The left side of the Recreation Room devoted to sparring and exercise, while the right side of the recreation area contains one holographic chamber designed to simulate various environments for training, designing, or pleasure purposes. An Ke-J1-E3105 - Autonomous Massage Unit (AMU) is also present for use after workouts.
Located next to the airlock, this is where EVA equipment is stored in separate lockers and shelves. It also has a damage control station to house equipment for making exterior repairs.
The Midori-Class has a small vehicle area with internal space of 10m x 8m x 4m. The floor lowers 1 meter and then slopes to the rear while a ramp extends to allow vehicles to egress.
It can hold the following:
Located on both decks, next to the vertical access ways, is the Sensor Array Access area. This is where the data and control connectivity is located and can be accessed and maintained.
On deck two starboard side there is an empty room. This space was left free so that the crew of the ship could customize its usage.
This is the region between the upper hull and deck 1. It is an oversized maintenance conduit. It provides access to the dorsal weaponry, the drive nacelles, and the sensor array interconnect. It is also where the shuttle bay door mechanisms are located. The over deck varies in height due to the curve from 0 - 2.5 meters.
This is the region between the bottom hull and deck 2. It is an oversized maintenance conduit. It is where the landing gear, cargo bay doors and the vehicle bay door/ramp mechanisms are located. The under deck varies in height due to the curve from 0 - 2.5 meters.
The Midori-Class hull design is based on providing a durable structure for survivability in remote areas. It is constructed as a one-meter thick double hull construction with Durandium Alloy framing between two .2 meter Yamataium layers. Set over a Durandium Alloy frame. The inside of the outer hull is coated in Xiulurium which when energized provides the ship with stealth capabilities.
The Midori-Class has all the Star Army Standard Starship Emergency Systems.
The Midori-Class has three Star Army Escape Pod, Type 30 stored in the Overdeck. They are located above the wardroom, covered by a protective panel that has the Star Army Hinomaru on it. The panel is jettisoned when launched. The actual entry point to each of the pods is flush with the ceiling in the wardroom.
Deployment sequence, Star Army Hinomaru shield jettisoned, hull sections ejected, pods launch.
The Midori-Class has two types of shutters, standard shutters for non-critical locations, and
The Midori-class has a single Soul Savior Pod for crew backups. It is located in the Computer room.
The Midori-Class has a unique sensor configuration, when not in use the array closes up to protect the components, and swings back to align with the hull.
When deployed each of the array limbs pivots 90 degrees from its stored position, and then opens up laterally.
The Midori-Class has four retracting landing gear for planetary landings. They retract into the sub-deck below deck 2. They are oriented one at the bow, one astern, and two amidships. The hull opens to allow the gear to be extended. Each of the landing gear retract into an isolated section of the sub-deck, meaning personnel can not gain access to the ship by climbing up the landing gear.
The Midori-Class uses Standard Passageways for horizontal travel. Moving between the two decks is done via two access points located towards the rear.
The Midori-Class has the following weapon systems:
