Task Force Inquisition is commanded by Shôshô Kimberly Kier. It is a standalone special purpose fleet created by Star Army Command in YE 39 under anti-sedition and anti-ambush directives. They have the jurisdiction to deploy and fight on systems officially within the control of Yamatai Star Empire space for the express purpose of preventing these surprise attacks or invasions.
This article is about the fleet. For plot information, see Task Force Inquisition.
The reason for the formation of Task Force Inquisition is fairly detailed. With the Kuvexian War ongoing, the Star Army of Yamatai decided additional security of the South-East Frontier was necessary.
Especially, several planets in this area are unsettled, ungarrisoned and unobserved. With the effectiveness of the Rixxikor's invasion of Yamatai and their usage of such planets as staging posts, Star Army Command authorised the deployment of the Legion IX to investigate and secure these planets. As transport and space/air element the Orochi Squadron were joined with the Ninth under the banner of Task Force Inquisition.
Orochi Squadron has a complement of:
Mission: Long-Range Reconnaissance/Planetary Assault
Command Ship: YSS Shinigami, Sharie-class Battleship
