YSS Asuka

Reborn From the Ashes

YSS Asuka in RP

Previous Status

The YSS Asuka was an ADULT (18+) Fifth Expeditionary Fleet (and briefly, UOCPF) plotship GMed by Toshiro, which started on August 10th, 2007. The concept behind the plot was one of both furthering the 5th XF's goals and technological development. The RP assumed a large number of the crew of the YSS Yugumo, and replaced the destroyed ship, so it could be considered a partial continuation. It was succeeded by the UCS Vanguard on April 08, 2008.

Current Status

Because a significant portion of the crew has moved off the ship, the ship's role as a plot ship is currently in limbo of sorts. According to Wes, once things are sorted out, the Asuka will continue its life as a place of roleplay.

YSS Asuka: A History

The YSS Asuka, NS-X5-23, is a Nozomi-class Scout vessel that barely survived the battle of Murf in YE 29. Her crew, however, did not survive, though the YSS Sakura and her crew managed to recover the vessel, and restore her crew with the data in the Soul Savior Pod. This action required combat with a Mishhuvurthyar who had remained after killing the crew. The Mishhu was destroyed, though it critically injured Taisa Ketsurui Hanako, Joto-Hei Elisa Metea (Deceased), and Joto-Hei Kage Yaichiro. Injured to a lesser extent was Hanako's Samurai, Santo-Juni Jo Midori.

After being left behind at Gemini Star Fortress, the YSS Asuka was given repairs by Kage Yaichiro, who had been forcibly reassigned. While the ship has obtained a “bad vibe” and many, even the original crew, refused to set foot on it; Yaichiro found the ship a reminder of his days with the Sakura.

After Yaichiro was promoted to Santo Juni and had left for his brief assignment on Pisces Station, the vessel was returned to the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet, where Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko inspected the vessel. After Pisces Station's dishonorable fate, Yaichiro was promptly reassigned to the 5th XF by the Taisho. In addition to other things, Yaichiro was given a promotion to Chui and command of the ship he had helped recover and restore.

After the destruction of the YSS Yugumo, the revived crew was placed under Yaichiro's command, and their adventures began…

The Asuka was ordered to capture the same SMX ship which was responsible for destroying the YSS Yugumo, which it did with flying colors. After saving thirteen prisoners, the ship, and determining its mission, the crew returned to Hotaru. While the others relaxed and had dinner, Yaichiro was faced with another SMX ship in his hangar, the YSS Asamoya which had brought it in, and Misato, who wanted to speak with him personally…

After speaking with the head of the Tange Clan, the 5th XF was attacked during a New Year's party and Post Mission Celebration. The entirety of the 5th XF's forces participated in the defense of the station, the Asuka doing so as a command point for the Nami no Seigi force, which then consisted of sixty ships which Yaichiro had commandeered. After defending Hotaru Star Fortress in a very lop-sided dogfight, and intervening to prevent a kamikaze attack on Jiyuu itself, the battle was won, and the Asuka proceeded to pull survivors and SS Pods from the wreckage of the battlefield.

At this time, Miyako saved a Yamataian CO of the YSS Sheridan, which quickly sparked into romance. Also, Kichiro and Yuki saved a sprite named Kage Kasumi "Mist", who woul become part of the crew. After a time of relaxation, the crew were transferred to the YSS Akigumo, and prepared to take part in the Bizankro Assault, but instead went to Yamatai with the rest of the YSS Akuro III's group to challenge Uesu about his role in the Elysian Plagues of YE 08.

After Empress Katsuko Motoyoshi's ascent to power, one day of shoreleave was granted, during which many swam, shopped, and drank. Notable incidents were the continued romance between Miyako and the YSS Sheridan's CO, as well as Yaichiro's adoption of Mist as his daughter.

Then the group boarded the Akigumo once again, preparing to leave for home.

On March 19, YE 30, the United Outer Colonies broke away from the Yamatai Star Empire. The Asuka was briefly forced into the United Outer Colonies Peacekeeping Forces, but was returned on March 26 with the rest of the property of the Star Army of Yamatai. The UOCPF defectors were transported by a ship from Chie Research Base.

Currently, the Asuka is reorganizing its crew to make up for the soldiers who defected.
