Takeda Fleet Emblem Mitsu Crew wear Type 43 Yugumo Corporation Uniforms as of YE 43, part of their Yugumo Corporation Standard Issue, along with the black beret bearing the ship's mission patch on the flash that is shipboard duty issue. security armor and power armor, as well as small craft pilot flight suits are in typical Yugumo Corporation colors of shades of purple, grey, and black, with gold trim. All uniforms and armor bear the Takeda Fleet logo on the right shoulder, and the ship's mission patch on the left. Mitsu crew are armed with their service sidearm at all times when on duty and not in an area civilians are not allowed to carry weapons.

History

The ISS Mitsu was constructed and launched in early YE 42 and was given to Kage Yaichiro by Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko as a present, with Takeda Fleet crewing and upfitting it to his specifications.

In YE 43, the MIKO Electronics Suite was upgraded to a KAIMON-Gate IES, bringing the ship to the 1B revision. It was then upgraded to the KAIMON-Prime Gate IES. Later that year, the ship was upfitted with the Noval Luxury Engineering Bespoke Package2).

In early YE 44, the Mitsu was sent to rendezvous with the YCS Bastion of Winter and explore Star System E-133)

Modifications

In addition to the upgrade to the 1B Spec, these modifications have been made which vary from the original design of the Misha-Class Explorer.

Noval Luxury Engineering

Noval Luxury Engineering was contracted for a full update and refit of the ship:

Bespoke Chairman Package

Noval Luxury Engineering's highest available package, the Chairman Package, was only the starting point for this vessel. Together with a famous artist from the Sanctum system, Noval designed an interior that is classy and subtle, while distinctly belonging to the craft's intended owner, Kage Yaichiro.

Every chair in the offices, lounges, and staterooms is fully kitted out, including noise canceling and tactile response that work in tandem with the craft's new volumetric display capabilities, so that any individual in the cabin can have their own independent work space. Most striking is a piece of artwork in the lounge, delicately worked into the wall's fabric, that displays a rendition of Yaichiro's history. Graceful lines, made of high quality fabric piping instead of simple paint, illustrate his many accomplishments, with beautiful accents denoting major events in her life. The Sunflower Corporation emblem is centrally positioned along the lines and wall both.

To a casual observer unfamiliar with the the man's less-well-known history, and less-than-well-versed in ciphers and codes, the wall is an impressive piece of art that is pleasing to the eye. To someone who knows about Mr. Shade, or Mr. President, or Office 8412, the wall contains encoded, cryptic details that could take weeks to fully decrypt the history within. Going to the utmost lengths to protect client privacy, the artist and all assistants and administrators, and anyone else connected with this part of the project, were under a voluntary memory block for the entire time they worked on the piece.

Other details of the craft's interior have been similarly enhanced from Noval's 'basic' Chairman Package. Improved security and safety systems are tucked into nearly surface, ready to defend or rescue the craft's passengers at a moment's notice. All fabrics and surfaces, save for the art installation, have been colored using Omnihue. Luxuries simple and extravagant are within arm's reach at all times, without ever appearing gaudy.

In short, the craft is a masterpiece of understated elegance, possessing every possible amenity one could imagine without being overly ostentatious.

Armor

The Mitsu has been reinforced and subtly up-armored, and is not considered unarmored, resisting damage at its full tier, rather than one step below. Due to its advanced systems, power and engine upgrades, and armoring, the Mitsu is considered Tier 11 (Medium Starship) as its size suggests, rather than Tier 10 (Light Starship) like the civilian Misha-Class Explorer. The armor layer is impregnated with an Omnihue matrix, allowing effectively unlimited control over the coloration, pattern, text, and insignia of the surface. This serves as thermoptic camouflage and signature reduction, if set properly.

Stellarium

The Mitsu's armor, in addition to the Omnihue, has a layer of Sitearium and Stellarium coating it, that allows for even more effective stealth than the Omnihue alone.

Deck Layout

The deck layout and interior spaces of the ship have been modified:

ISS Mitsu Deck Layout

Compartments

The following compartments have been added or modified:

Armory

The Armory is secured behind two layers of Forcefield-Nested Isolation Doors and is access-controlled. The room is fully stocked with weapons and equipment for use by Yaichiro and his associates. There are enough sturdy racks, cages, drawers, and cabinets outfitted with multiple locks to securely contain everything, as well as a workbench for performing modifications and repairs to firearms and blades. The officer on duty for both the armory and brig has a well-appointed desk with a Ge-T8-E3103 - Computer Array and a comfortable office chair.

A EM-J5 Flying Assistant Robot Series (FARS) specialized for security and first aid duty, and one specced for repair work assist the officer.

The Security-Spec EM-J5 Flying Assistant Robot Series (FARS) that patrol the ship are also based here.

Brig

A divided off part of the Armory serves as a small brig. There's a bench with a rail for attaching restraints for short-term detention, with an open shower and head, and a water fountain. A pair of Transparent Durandium holding cells are for longer-term occupancy, with floor drains, spartan bunks featuring restraints, and sink/fountain/toilet combos. The Brig's entrance, along with the officer on duty's desk, is located between the Forcefield-Nested Isolation Doors, making it impossible to get directly from the Brig to the Armory proper.

Captain's Stateroom

Spanning the area of two of the standard cabins, Yaichiro's luxurious stateroom is designed for his comfort, entertainment, and convenience. Upgraded from the standard shower and head into a full Yamataian-style washroom, featuring separate shower, steam-room, and soaking tub with whirlpool jets, it occupies a corner of the space, cutting the room into an L-shape. The small end of the L is a walk in closet with wardrobe and vanity. It has entrances from both the bedroom and washroom, and features gear storage and a personal armory for Yaichiro's Yugumo Corporation Standard Issue and Security Loadout, as well as his original issue before the update, with room to spare for nearly anything else he wishes. At the crux of the L is a kitchenette and breakfast nook, with small, angled canopy bar with full back and stools on the opposite corner, while the entrance at the long side of the L opens into a foyer and sitting room with couches and coffee tables huddled around a simulated fireplace. Beyond it, before the kitchenette, is a well-appointed office alcove with a desk and chair and Ge-T8-E3103 - Computer Array allowing Yaichiro to conduct business from his stateroom, without even having to cross the corridor to the office. The wall between the office alcove and the soaking tub is mostly a large aquarium. Across from the desk, a multifunction all-in-one exercise unit is cleverly out of the way in another alcove. For covert communications, any mirrored surface in the stateroom functions as a Lying Mirror. On the bed is the coveted Hyper-Tempri-Sama Goldwater Exclusive blanket.

Cargo Bays

Each cargo bay has been fitted with a Scalable Graviton Beam Projector in the center of the rear wall, and one in the center of the ceiling, for handling cargo. A pair of Basic Grapplers are located on a gantry above in each one, along with traditional cranes and lifts.

Computer Room

In addition to the supplemental computing hardware and the upgrade to KAIMON, the computer room has one Anthroform Drone Berth, Type 42 for use by the ship's avatar's KAIMON Ascendant Consort for when Miko wishes to have a “real” body instead of a volumetric one (solid or otherwise).

Crew Cabin

Twelve Anthroform Drone Berth, Type 42, with storage units between each pair, are clustered along the far wall for the androids, and there are two more, one to the either side of the entrance, for a total of eight. Four pairs of Type 40 Bunk Beds in the Deluxe Three Bunks, Desk, and Drawer/Wheels configuration face each other from across the narrower dimension of the room. Each desk is connected to a Ge-T8-E3103 - Computer Array as well as the ship's systems, and below each one is a footlocker.

The Crew Cabin takes up a little more room than the single default stateroom and features a shower and head. There is a table with four chairs in the central common area, along with an all-in-one exercise machine. Volumetric Windows provide display for entertainment, environmental, and informational purposes.

Damage Control Lockers

In key areas around the ship are damage control lockers containing vital supplies and equipment in case of damage to the ship. They are hidden behind locking, sliding bulkhead panels, that, like the locker itself, may only be opened by authorized personnel. Each contains:

Drone Launch

Drone Storage

Cargo One also features 24 Anthroform Drone Berth, Type 42. Currently, most are occupied by the original android bodies of the crew: 9 EM-J2-3a Douryo Android (Deluxe), 2 Mimic Computer, and 4 EM-J6-1 "Rayleigh", along with storage units for their originally issued gear. Most of the rest are occupied by a half-dozen spare Consort bodies still in their factory defaults, though there are a few empty spaces left. Additional EM-J5 Flying Assistant Robot Series (FARS) are kept on shelves and the accessories to specialize them are kept here, and there are a few EM-J4-M3503 Docking Station along with some spare EM-J4-M3502 Basic Tool Kit.

Emergency Bunks

Cargo One and Cargo Two both feature racks of Star Army Bunk Bed, Type 40 bunked three high, kept in collapsed mode, just in case the ship needs to take on additional people in an emergency. There are 16 sets of bunks in Cargo One, and 24 in Cargo Two. In addition, there are simple emergency shower-heads and drains, along with sink/fountain/toilet combos, one for each four sets of bunks, behind removable panels in the bulkheads of both cargo bays. Similarly concealed are a washer, dryer, and utility sink for every eight sets of bunks. These systems raise the emergency capacity of the vessel to nearly five times the base, with more comfort and less crowding due to the temporary increase in berthing space and sanitation extending the livable area to the cargo areas.

Engineering

First Aid Lockers

In strategic places throughout the ship, several on each deck, are lockers containing first aid supplies. They are clearly marked and a high-visibility orange.

Guest Cabin

The Guest Cabin is, unlike the rest of the cabins, unchanged from the standard suites found on the stock Misha-Class Explorer. The Guest Cabin is a spacious bedroom, featuring a king-sized bed, a corner “L” seat, a desk, a closet, and a shower and head bathroom attached.

Gymnasium and Dojo

Opposite the Onsen, part of Cargo One has been separated into a Gymnasium and Dojo. It features not only a full complement of state-of-the-art workout machinery, but also a large, open area for practicing various martial arts and dance. The floor of the dojo is a smooth, slightly slick surface, but there are mats in storage to cover the entire area. Three sides of the Dojo area are mirrored, offering viewpoints to ensure correct form. The gym's locker room features a communal shower and head, a sauna, a steam roomb, massage tables, a whirlpool hot tub, and a therapeutic soaking tub.

A set of Forcefield-Nested Isolation Doors leads to the Volumetric Room, but they are hidden behind sliding panels covered by the mirrors.

Housekeeping Closets

Spaced efficiently around the ship, with easy access to anywhere on the ship, from anywhere on the ship, are humble janitorial closets featuring a utility sink and a place to fill and drain mop buckets, and ample shelving, racks, and cabinet space for Cleaning Supplies, towels, and linens, pillows, and blankets.

Lab

The lab is set up as an infirmary and basic medical bay as well as a science laboratory. In addition to essential science equipment such as microscopes, centrifuges, and a fume hood, the medical equipment includes an ATMC Ke-J1-E3301 - Autonomous Configurable Medical Unit unit and Treatment and Examination Bed. An EM-J5-6a - FARS GP with appropriate medical accessories attached is on duty in the lab at all times. The officer on duty has a well-appointed desk with a Ge-T8-E3103 - Computer Array and a comfortable office chair. The lab has its own shower and head.

A pair of EM-J5 Flying Assistant Robot Series (FARS) specialized for first aid duty assist the officer and respond to medical emergencies on the ship.

Magazines

Secure storage, containing Kinetic Penetrator Ammunition for the "Taihou" Medium Starship Cannons and Light Autocannons, the Magazines are heavily armored, static-free vaults with independent environmental systems. Located in the wing pylons, to either side, they are connected to an automated feed system. Like the Armory, they are secured behind Forcefield-Nested Isolation Doors and access-controlled. Other than during resupply or repair, it should not be necessary to enter either magazine.

Each magazine has its own dedicated "Mobile Spanner" Drone and EM-J4-2a MARI (Space) with EM-J4-M3502 Basic Tool Kit operating autonomously inside, with a EM-J4-M3503 Docking Station for the latter.

Office

Kage Yaichiro's innumerable business, charitable, and governmental responsibilities require that he be able to perform his functions in any of his organizations from anywhere, at any time. A semicircular desk, featuring every technological convenience and advantage available dominates the end of the room farthest from the door. Its luxurious arm chair faces off against a trio of lesser chairs across the desk's surface, for face to face meetings. There are secret, constantly-active, high-performance, highly-encrypted, dedicated lines directly to Office 8412. Another desk is off to one side, not quite as impressive, but equally as comfortable and perhaps more well-appointed from a technology and control systems standpoint. This one is reserved specifically for members of Kage Yaichiro's Research and Development Team, typically Grapefruit.

Closer to the door a pair of smaller desks with less ostentatious chairs face each other, requiring anyone entering the office to walk between them. Every desk is outfitted with a Ge-T8-E3103 - Computer Array terminal. To one side of the office is a kitchenette, and on the other, a conference chamber with an oval table, eight chairs, and a state of the art telepresence and teleconferencing suite. One wall is dominated by a great aquarium stocked with native Jiyuuan species.

A EM-J5 Flying Assistant Robot Series (FARS) specialized for office duty assists the administrators.

Officer Quarters

Twelve Anthroform Drone Berth, Type 42, with storage units between each pair, are lined up along the far wall for the Androids. The Officer Quarters takes up a little less than space of two of the default crew cabins.

Two rooms, two to either side of the common area each feature a pair of Type 40 Bunk Beds in the Deluxe Three Bunks, Desk, and Drawer/Wheels configuration that face each other from across the narrower dimension of the room. Each desk is connected to a Ge-T8-E3103 - Computer Array as well as the ship's systems, and below each one is a footlocker.

Each room in the Officer Quarters has a shower and head, and there are a pair of tables with each with four chairs, a workout area featuring several multifunction exercise machines, and a pair of desks with chairs and their own Ge-T8-E3103 - Computer Array in the central common area. Volumetric Windows provide display for entertainment, environmental, and informational purposes.

Onsen and Pool

The Bathhouse has been extended into some of the area of Cargo One to include a bathing and swimming area patterned after a natural hot springs. The facilities are patterned after a Traditional Yamataian Onsen, featuring multiple waterfalls. The pool has adjustable temperature and salinity, and is deep enough for full submersion and large enough for light swimming. Adjacent to it are a fully stocked bar, a jet whirlpool, and a traditional wooden hot tub. The main entrance to the area is through the communal shower, as etiquette demands one be clean before entering, but there is a service and maintenance entrance through Cargo One. Separate from the soaking pool is a small Koi pond, fed by its own waterfall, and a basalt and white gravel Zen Garden. There is a communal shower and head for ensuring cleanliness before entering. The water from the Koi pond is filtered aquaponically, providing fertilizer to the plants growing in the greenhouse.

Power Armor Storage

Cargo One has been modified to include a small civilian power armor storage bay that uses the already in place airlock structure. When Kage Yaichiro is aboard, his custom blue and white Kirie Thought Armor is stored here.

Survival Lockers

At key strategic points around the ship are lockers containing vital survival supplies. They are clearly marked and painted a high-visibility green. Each contains:

Volumetrics Room

Similar to the volumetrics room on a Plumeria-class (2E) Medium Gunship, this room's walls, ceiling, and floor are all Volumetric Windows coated with anti-scuff coatings, and the Volumetric Displays in the room are capable of projecting Solid Volumetrics, as well as Hard Light (Technology) thanks to an array of IRI-Type Hard light Apparatus. The Volumetrics Room is intended for recreation, training, and briefings.Force fields have been added to provide tactile feedback to simulations as well as to slide people back imperceptibly when they try to walk too close to a wall or change elevation. In this way, simulations larger than the room would normally permit are possible and can be safely employed. Simulations can also make people appear and sound further away than they are and nudge them away from collisions with each other if necessary to further add to the illusion.

This force field sliding can be disabled easily if desired; but small markers will appear to show the walls, floor, and ceiling boundaries while the door to the room becomes visible as a safety measure. All people will be shown in their actual locations as well.

Uses of the Volumetric Room include consuming media en masse, holding briefings with visual aids, relaying briefings from alternate locations, training, running combat simulations, showing simulations of home or other relaxing venues, large scale communications, as a pre-mission staging area, or even for making crew members run laps as punishment.

The Volumetric Room was modified in late YE 43 to be sealed with Forcefield-Nested Isolation Doors. The pipes, vents, and drains allow for the sealed room to be partially or completely flooded with water, or the atmospheric pressure changed, made heavy or vacuum. The temperature, humidity, atmospheric composition, and gravity are adjustable to extremes not available on the rest of the ship.

There is a second set of Forcefield-Nested Isolation Doors that lead to the Gym/Dojo, but they are hidden behind sliding panels.

Weapons Lockers

In key areas around the ship such as on the bridge are secure lockers containing emergency weaponry in case of an emergency on the ship such as a boarding action. They are hidden behind locking, sliding bulkhead panels, that, like the locker itself, may only be opened by authorized personnel.

Workshop

The workshop has had a Star Army Fabrication Chamber, Type 39 installed as its centerpiece. It includes a Civilian Synthesis Reactor Module and a backup Aether generator for emergency use.

In addition to a "Mobile Spanner" Drone, there is a repair-spec EM-J5 Flying Assistant Robot Series (FARS) to assist in the workshop.

Internal Security

Internally, there are enough pop-out automated weapons turrets positioned as to cover the entire interior with at least three of them able to aim at any one spot, with no blind spots or effective cover. These weapons are equivalent to a Yugumo E2 Energy Pistol each, but draw power directly from the ship's power systems5). They are capable of firing in lethal and nonlethal modes, independently of each other. They are not capable of firing at targets outside of the ship. Additionally, hidden, armored vaults in strategic places around the ship contain actual Yugumo E2 Energy Pistols, ready to open at the mental command of an authorized person6).

Hidden Drone Berths

Eight Anthroform Drone Berth, Type 42 are at the corners of each deck's corridor, fore and aft, port and starboard, in pairs with a storage unit between each pair. There are four in the captain's stateroom, two in the armory, and eight on the bridge. These, designed to house EM-J6-1 "Rayleigh" security drones with Medical and Commander packages, are masterfully concealed behind panels in such a way that their deployment cannot be obstructed. They carry Personal Defense Shield "Svalinn" Tower shields with the Solid Volumetrics and Electric Stun System options, and are “armed” with an OI-W32-1a Magic Handin addition to their wakizashi, as well as a TC Type 33/C Nekovalkyrja Service Pistol with a YB-28A Triple-Power Magazine, EM-W4 Stun Baton, a EM-G16-2a First Aid Kit, and a set of Emrys Industries Electromagnetic Manacles on a Star Army Utility Belt, Type 327).

Security Drone

Modified Systems

Many of the systems of the ISS Mitsu have been modified or upgraded from the original design of the ship.

Computer Upgrades

Several racks of Ge-T8-E3103 - Computer Array, 12 in all, and 16 full Nodes (10) of X-type Quantum Computers have been added to the system room to augment the KAIMON and MIKO Electronics Suite for additional computing power. The hardware for the MIKO Electronics Suite and all its modules was retained, and upgrades to the newly-installed KAIMON allow the ISS Mitsu to run the KAIMON-Prime Gate intended for larger ships, rather than the class-standard KAIMON-Gate model used by the Misha-Class Explorer, and keep its MIKO Electronics Suite, while running a Destiny King Suite with all its sensors and components as well. In addition to hosting KAIMON, MIKO, and Destiny, the server hosts several instances of the RICE system, including the Lazarus' "Laplace" La+ Operating System distribution.

KAIMON

In YE 43 the MIKO Electronics Suite was upgraded to the KAIMON-Prime Gate IES. The MIKO was retained as a subordinate, secondary system.

MIKO Modules

In addition to the Science and Explorer package for the MIKO Electronics Suite standard on the Misha-Class Explorer, the ISS Mitsu's MIKO has been fully upgraded with all of the available packages, from the Patrol, Tactical, and Scout to increase the vessel's combat and reconnaissance capabilities, to the Diplomatic and Support packages to assist Kage Yaichiro with his business and other endeavors.

'Destiny' AI

With the addition of an array of Origin X-Type Quantum Computer Nodes, a 'Destiny' AI King Suite was installed, along with the sensors and emitters for it to function, and it was connected to the other two AI modules and the rest of the computing resources.

Backup Communications System

The Mitsu retains its full suite of MIKO Communications and additionally has the 'Destiny' AI System ones.

Emergency Communications System

An Yggdrasill Emergency Pulser Communications System has been installed for emergency, backup, and covert communications.

Backup Power Systems

The Mitsu has several backup power systems installed to ensure it can remain powered through any emergency.

Secondary Power System

A Tsuyosa Series Matter-Antimatter Reactor has been added for secondary power. This system also includes a Matter Collection System.

Tertiary Power System

For a backup to the backup, alternative source, or for auxiliary power in case of high demand, a Class 3 Hyperspace Fuel Tap has been installed.

Quaternary Power System

Should all else before it fail or simply require more power, a Phoenix Fusion Generator is available.

Quinary Power System

As a final fallback power generation system, HONEY SLAM fusion generator with quadruple power supply has been installed.

Propulsion

The Mitsu has numerous upgrades to its propulsion systems.

Turbo Plasma Drives

The Hoshi II Series Turbo Plasma Drives, Type 42 have been upgraded and tuned along with the installation of the plasma weaponry and vernier system. Can be used for VTOL.

  • Stat Modification: Maximum Sublight Speed is 0.36c (2.6AU/Hr).
Backup Sublight Propulsion

As a contingency backup a Cirrostratus Ion-Grid Propulsion Drive has been installed, in case of the failure of the main sublight drives, or their inefficacy due to anomalous local conditions.

  • Cruising Thrust (safe): 0.225c
  • Max Thrust (unsafe): 0.300c
Falcon Tunnel Drive

As a backup or alternate FTL drive solution, the ship has been fitted with a Falcon Tunnel Drive, which may perform better in certain astrophysical or stellographical situations than Continuum Distortion or Hyperspace fold.

  • Range: 15LY
  • Speed: 0.2ly/m
  • Charge time: 5m/ly
Supplementary Environmental Shielding

The primary CFS-based variable-geometry barrier shielding is supplemented by an Environmental Starship Shield to protect the ship, crew, passengers, and cargo from environmental hazards should the main shields fail.

Weapon Add-Ons

The ISS Mitsu is not a warship, but it has been equipped with enough weapons to defend itself in an emergency.

Ten multi-purpose mounts are built into the hull of the vessel: two on each wing, two each dorsal and ventral and one each port and starboard. The ship is armed with a Plasma Projection System array feeding various sizes of the "Taihō" Scalable Mass Driver and the retrofitted "Tachikaze" Point Defense Cannons Type 43 as of late YE 43 . The Plasma Projection System also serves as secondary engines and maneuvering verniers, increasing the acceleration profile, maximum speed, and maneuverability of the ship. Also in YE 43, a pair of "Yakaze" Series Anti-Starship Turrets Type 43 were added to the Mitsu's armaments.

Other Add-Ons

Some additional add-ons to the ship. The Mineral Scanner and SachiTech Tech-Scanner were added towards the end of YE 43

Shuttles and Vehicles

Shuttles and vehicles on the ISS Mitsu are listed below.

Shuttle Bay

Besides the ISS Mitsu's shuttles, Kage Yaichiro often keeps his prototypes and other personal craft here.

Vehicle Storage

The ISS Mitsu has a complement of planetary vehicles, as well as any personal vehicles Kage Yaichiro stores here:

Ship's Inventory

The Mitsu and its crew are well stocked and supplied with equipment and consumables:

Engineering Inventory

Most items stored in Engineering are personal protective equipment, along with some basic tools:

Lab Inventory

Avatar

Mitsu Miko (蜜実子) is the volumetrically projected avatar of the ship's KAIMON AI. She appears as a lithe, waifish human girl in her late teens or early twenties with hime-cut black hair and purple eyes. Her apparent outfit is a variant of a traditional Yamataian Miko costume, but in the Yugumo Corporation/Takeda Fleet colors of Motoyoshi purple and charcoal grey, rather than the traditional red and white. She is often seen appearing to silently sweep the corridors and decks of the ship with a volumetric broom in a traditional bamboo-and-straw style. It's almost as if she were a ghost haunting the ship, rather than a manifestation of its AI. Her effective rank is Buchō (部長). Originally running on the MIKO Electronics Suite, she retained all of that hardware, software, and capability, in addition to the added 'Destiny' AI System. Access to all of these resources has made her a particularly robust, and she has actually gained complete sentience, though she hides this fact from everyone. She may also project up to five avatars, having access to so many computing resources.

Only officers and security personnel are on watch rotation. There are four watches and four stations: Bridge, Infirmary, Security (Armory and Brig), and Engineering. The Galley is only crewed during mealtime, and the Quartermaster does not stand watch as they must be available for one meal per watch. Bridge, Engineering, and Security change every watch, and Infirmary changes every other watch. Attendants are on shift two at a time, each on for two shifts and off for two. The Chief of Staff also does not stand watch. Administrators, including the Chief of Staff work during the business day (Ship's time, synced with Yamatai (Planet) time).
