About YSS Eucharis

Ship Emblem

YSS Eucharis Logo

The Eucharis emblem consists of the cool starship (in its original form) on a background of Yamataian space set within a red circle, surrounded by gold thread. The red circle represents the Ketsurui Clan, and the gold rope represents military (naval) service. The ship's motto does not appear on the emblem (it was designed before the ship had a motto). A patch version of the Eucharis emblem is worn by the crew on their uniforms.

Ship IRN

The ship's Imperial Registry Number is NG-X1-408.


Ship Motto

The Eucharis' motto is “All Ways Superior.” This is a modification of “Quality, All Ways,” the motto of the YSS Sakura.

The motto refers to the crew's duty to keep on top of things (i.e. maintaining control of the situation) and to constantly work to remain technologically superior to the enemy. The wordplay between “All ways” and “Always” is deliberate and the motto is meant to serve as both expressions.

Ship Name

Like much of the Plumeria series, the ship is named after a type of flower1); Eucharis also was the name of a nymph 2). The primary meaning of the word Eucharis comes from the Greek kharisma, meaning grace or charm3) {the prefix “eu” denoting good or beautiful.}“4)

Ship Song

Eucharis, Eucharis, we love you!
You're strong and tough in all you do,

Eucharis, Eucharis, we love you!
We'll take good care of you.

Eucharis Eucharis, we love you!
You keep a very lively crew!

Serve the Star Army! Fight the enemy!
Charisma, do the best that you can do!

Modifications

Here's information unique to the Eucharis, such as modifications to its interior and its systems.

Map

Interior Spaces

Some parts of the Eucharis, especially on deck six and in the cargo bay, have a lingering odor of seawater. Other parts have the signs of fire–burn marks and a smoky odor–that are difficult to get rid of.

Bridge

The ship's bridge has a white and red color scheme (colors of the Ketsurui Clan) and has ship's emblem in the bridge carpeting. The original rear door was moved to the starboard side and replaced with an extra control station; a second door leading to the captain's suite was added. The bridge entrance is sealed off by a Forcefield-Nested Isolation Door in addition to its normal Zesuaium blast shutter. The chairs on the bridge have also been replaced with softer, more adjustable models, which were later replaced with Starship Chair, Type 35.

In the RP, the bridge is often used for Mission Control.

Engineering

The Eucharis has replaced its radioisotope thermal generators with Lorath-made fusion generators.

Docking Airlock

The YSS Eucharis has an additional docking airlock on the port side that leads to the main (zero-gravity) passageway. It is visible on the ship's exterior. The dock has an extra-long, extending flexible docking tube with an automatically adjusting end connector that is able to connect to nearly any other ship's airlock.

Wardroom

Wardroom

The Eucharis wardroom is divided into three sections: a lower level with two tables, a stairway to the lounge, and access to a bookroom; an upper level with the main table and buffet line; and the kitchen area, which contains food storage, preparation, and cooking areas.

The wardroom floor and tables are made of wood from Hanako's World; many ships of this class have marble floors. The ceiling has various paintings, including several of Yui and Hanako. There is also a window in the center of the ceiling–the only one on the ship.

Eucharis Wardroom

Bookroom

Protected behind airtight glass cabinet doors, Hanako's collection of books is constantly growing in both subjects and volume.

Galley

The galley has an Emfratec Cooking Technology (Galley Master size) in addition to its standard equipment.

Utensils

The Eucharis' has an interesting set of kitchen utensils. The ornate tableware is made of pure Platinum while the plates are black ceramic with a Platinum ring around their edges. Stoves use flames fed from an onboard supply of Methane created by the ship's recycling processes.

Walls

Hidden behind thick red velvet curtains, the port and starboard walls have been lined with a recessed multi-layer hydroponics system used to grow spinach, tomatoes, basil, and other herbs and vegetables. This helps the ship maintain a supply of quality ingredients when away from ports.

Near the entrance to the main passageway, other items on the wall include:

Medical Center and Laboratory

Recently the Eucharis's Sakura-type Medical Laboratory was upgraded with a Medical Scanner Charging Station to support the Portable Medical Scanner PMS-1M.

Recreation Area

Hanako had two Automated Massage Units added to the recreation area.

Systems

Computer and AI

The Eucharis has a special, heavily upgraded MEGAMI system, named Charisma. The AI was originally that of the YSS Sakura. Charisma is more powerful than other computers in her class and specializes in infiltration of other high-level computer systems. Hanako, having an exceptional grasp of computers, has put her expertise into Charisma; working together they are unstoppable.

In case of emergency, Hanako's station on the bridge has a hard reset switch for the computer.

Defenses

The YSS Eucharis' shield systems have been fortified to provide increased protection against subspace detonator-type weaponry; they can also act as a Mass Mesher. The ship's artificial gravity systems have been enhanced to better protect against scalar waves in the event of shield failure.

In mid YE 30, the crew equipped Eucharis with the first Entropy's Shroud Electronic Warfare Suite to be used on a Yamataian starship, but this was later replaced with the more effective Type 31 Electronic Warfare Suite when it became available.

Eucharis's crew outfitted the ship with a system of array capable of creating three dimensional images. This Volumetric Projection Array can create the illusion of various starships or empty space. The projector has a range of up to thirty million kilometers (1/5th of an AU). The images are massless and sensors will not pick up a reading for the created objects.

Environmental Systems

The Eucharis has robust redundant environmental systems augmented by additional parts and installation kits acquired on the public markets. The Eucharis is also equipped with a water filtering system for water landings and a Hydrogen/Oxygen Distiller (just add water!).

Hull

The Eucharis has Ketsurui Clan colors on its hull.

Propulsion

Eucharis has two large, extra sublight engines.

Sensor Systems

The Eucharis is equipped with additional sensor systems, including: Quantum Mirrors set as trim around the dorsal and ventral edges and coated high-quality transparent Durandium covers. The Quantum Mirrors are also built into the forward sensor dish; Lorath-made sensors (Hyperspace and Subspace Monitoring, Quantum Sensors and Dimensional Sensors); a telepathic activity scanner; and weather monitoring equipment.

Towing Support

The Eucharis has a special attachment point at the aft of the ship that is designed to tow additional modules such as cargo pods and sensor arrays. On exploration missions, the Eucharis typically carries an Orbital Geological Survey Platform.

Weapons

Eucharis is more heavily armed than standard Plumeria gunships.

The standard Plumeria-class carries the following weaponry:

Eucharis additionally mounts:

Rather than opting for a direct attack, the Eucharis is sent in advance to deploy an away team to retrieve valuable intelligence information from the enemy station's computer, which would allow the Star Army to navigate to Kuvexian territory and fight them there rather than waiting for more Kuvexian Invasions to appear.
    1. The Eucharis arrives at the same time as a regularly-scheduled Kuvexian supply freighter and inserts the away team while the station lowers its shields. The team begins to fight with defenders while attempting to make their way into the computer core.
