YE 30

The thirtieth year of the Yamataian Calendar. YE 30 lasted from summer 2007, until December 31, 2008.


Notable Events


  • Kakutama Heavy Industries was founded, owned, and operated by the Shichou Clan.
  • The Guild of Cyberempathy usurps crime lords on Halna and other worlds in order to finance their operations. Drug and slave trading operations are systematically shut down in these sectors. Automata begin to police in force, in turn leading to a sharp decline in the number of violent crimes. Attempts are made to infiltrate Nepleslian criminal infrastructure, but are only successful in small, limited increments.
  • Freespacer survivors exodus to Port Hope in Nepleslian space, and north into the Blue Rift Expanse. The Ley Lines network established to this end.
  • Lorath Starship Storage Depot is established.

  • Motoyoshi Kiyoko becomes heavily influenced by the Tange, who have begun to voice treasonous opinions towards the Empire.

Building A New Nation

Angelica and the SMX

  • Angelica and her Shlarvasseroth-class Flagship are spotted in the Yugumo Cluster several times presumably meeting with Tange officials in secret. No investigation was ever made into this matter. It was dismissed as the activity of the Hanabusa Traitors.

Piracy Issues

  • After the UOC was forced to send its Star Army of Yamatai military ships and equipment, the UOC's ability to protect itself is severely diminished. This causes an explosion of piracy, as vengeful Yamataian loyalists and opportunistic Nepleslians prey on UOC shipping.

Other Events

  • The United Manufacturing Cooperative is formed through the cooperation of several corporate conglomerates in the region.
  • Citizens of the Colonies gain a cultural identity defining themselves as Jiyuuian
