The Kiiro no Hoshi 5467 stellar system has two asteroid belts, the Naiba Showakusei-tai and the Sotugawa Showakusei-tai with millions of rocky bodies rich in metal and mineral resources, several trojan asteroid clusters, a kuiper belt with thousands of planetoids and dwarf planets - of which several dozen are claimed as Nejiroan Crown Lands in reserve for future resource needs, and an oort cloud which originates several Nejiroan meteor showers and comets. 
There are a plethora of mining outposts, and science stations based on asteroids, moons, planets, habitats, and space stations throughout the system each with a few dozen to a few thousand personnel. Each may contain command, emergency response, security, law enforcement, military, resident quarters, markets, armoury, recreation, banking, assaying, weapons,  processesing, laboratories, research projects, shops, inns, repair facilities, medical, guildhalls, pubs and saloons, joy houses and baths, mines, farms, and/or other resources. They, as well as the stellar ports and parks, are governed under the aegis of Nejiro's Parliament - Stellar Affairs Ministry (Minister Ram Santosh) as special wards and function similarly to free cities or chartered villages depending on scale. Some of the more well known mining outposts [mostly located on asteroids of which there are more than six million in system] that mine a variety of resources including basalt, helium, platinum, lead, barium, silicates, magnesium, nickel, iron, carbon, chondrites, gold, silver, quicksilver, tungsten, cobalt, osmium, iridium, zirconium, yttrium, strontium, rhodium, tin, gemstones, crystals, salts, gases, aluminum, organic materials, titanium, water etc., are Rockhound, Pitmans Rest, Blossom Rock, Hanging Wall, Country Rock, Greenstone, Rockbolt, Calico, Tuatara, Harmony, Ace High, Daisy, Brave Depths, Centurion, The Dark, Grouter, The Laughing Dogs, and Kedge.  
Some of the more well known science stations are Shen Kuo, Varahamira, Acme Research Collective, the Cyclops Space Telescope, the Hydra Space Telescope, Starlight Labs, Alhazen, Seishu, Pingala, Menaechmus, Freese, Sau Lan Wa, Lonsdale, Hutchins, Galileo, Thales, and Beagle where there are a variety of studies, experiments, and development taking place in astronomy, agriculture, astrophysics, weapon development, vacuum energy, crystal growth (for computing, electronics, and power storage), medical instruments (handheld and portable imaging and diagnostics), pharmacology (multiaction antibodies, pain blocks, anasthesia, paralytics, sexual function, neuro-divergent therapies, biochemical processing), enhancing photosynthesis, solar liquid fuel, non-petroleum plastics development, robots, nanotechnology, cybernetics, bionics, neural interfaces, repulsar technology, hard light research, artificial gills, development of biomaterials for tissue engineering, development of natural language processing in real time, super elastic alloy development, electrochemical energy storage, engineered protein films foradhesion, lubrication, and sensing applications, microRNA treatments, drawn on skin bioelectroics in development for medical diagnostics, fitness tracking, and athlete performance tracking.

“So it is set we will get to work on the vehicles.”
“Great, it will be good to see that they will help protect our new home with our help.”
“I am glad they are letting us work on them …. It is almost like it was.”
“I was also informed that when some of the others are of age they will get shots at crewing them.”
“That is great, even more reason to get them back in to tip top shape.”





Kono will be shown into Meiyo’s office “Sho-sho thank you for seeing me so quickly.”
“It is nothing at all, my friend. So what can I do for you?”
“I have been talking with Tai-sa Westfield and Precentor Wiles about filling in some gaps our ground units need.”
“You do not need to speak to me about this.”
“I do as we are looking to setup long term ways to provide some of the items. The Precentor and I are looking to setup a production line for Delta Dart 15 racks, Lord’s Light P.P. C.’s and Dragons Breath vehicle flamers. We have secured the proper license agreements but we need space to setup shop.” She looks at Meiyo to judge how she is taking this news. “Tai-sa Westfield and I have worked out import agreements from Diverse Optics for extended and pulse lasers, Lord’s Light for E. R. P. P.C.s and Imperator for the Code Red LB-X cannon.” Kono hands a pad with all the plans on it. “We would need storage space at the space port for this plus the need customs forms.”
“So far all of this is nothing over what I would call the top. I would say talk with the different Ichizoku leaders to see if they would offer you land for the production plant.” Meiyo looks over the plan Kono handed her. “I am sure any one of them would be happy to rent you space for this venture. They will ask for some of the production and or employment for local workers.”
“Something that is in the plan. We would have taken Stark up on the offer they made but we have a lot of money invested in these projects. We do have one other ask for the imports and that is would Phoenix be up to helping with shipping. We have spoken with Mr. Corado and he will work with on this but with moving here and a smaller fleet he can only offer some help.”
“I am sure that something can be worked with Phoenix.”
“Thank you so much.”

“Hay we all know that.”
“Just a reminder, do not forget that they also were part of the rescue as well.”
“Hay we know and look some of the others are working here as well.”
“Well we were told that all of us would become part of the different groups we wanted to be part of.”
“It is wild that they have helped us so much.”
“Well then we need to repair these tanks the best we can.”

Minerva is Nejiro's first space habitat; there are now several in system - Luna, Arcadia, Ukiyo {floating world} (the Nejiro stellar system's premier 'Red Light' community), Plutus (mining resource and geology habitat), Saxe (agricultural habitat) - and more under construction. The hab was built in system and sits at the stellar system L4. It is a modified O'Neill Cylinder with over sixty thousand residents. The double cylindrical colony is six point four kilometers in diameter and thirty six kilometers in length. Each cylinder rotates, to maintain 1G, along its axis once per minute in a radius of five hundred meters in opposite directions, connected at each end by a rod via a bearing system. Each interior is divided into six lengthwise strips, three window sections which let in sunlight, alternating with three land sections where people live and work (in Minerva's case mostly science and technology). Outside each window section is a huge mirror system that reflects sunlight to illuminate the land section on the opposite side, by adjusting the angle of the mirrors the level of sunlight can be controlled to create a sense of passing time and different seasons. Since the main source of energy is sunlight the mirrors are controlled so they always face the star. As a result, the bases of the mirrors are placed on the opposite end of the cylinder from the star where many dome shaped agricultural plants are arranged in a ring fourteen point thirty five kilometers in diameter, These plants are seperated into three blocks which are positioned so they are not hidden in the shadows and produce more than enough food for the inhabitants. The industrial block is located in the middle to allow for minimized gravity for some manufacturing processes. The central axis is a zero-gravity region with recreational and experimental facilities. Opposite the base of the mirror system are the solar furnace, energy storage, and small craft bays.

I'm in the beginning phase of a cold.  I got the flu vaccine Wednesday afternoon and the symptoms began Friday morning, so it could be my immune system being paranoid.  I'm considering calling in sick for tomorrow's game.  If I come, it will be with a mask.  I won't be able to make it to tomorrow's game.  It would be unwise.

“Looks like the bandits are going to that DropShip.”
“Let them go, they have taken a lot of damage and that Marauder is not going to be happy looking for stealth armor out this way.”
“We did not get off lightly for that matter.”
“We do need to get word out to all other friendly units about the Flak rounds they used on us.”
“YA that was not good. It is a good thing the ComGuard pilots are good.”



69/03
Okuizome Saganami Yasha will be at Saganami Castle and only the Saganami Ichizoku.
Meiyo will inquire of Crash the availability of the restaurant for catering some of the dishes at this event - she will be interested in both the cuisine the restaurant regularly serves and traditional FWL dishes





“So how are the Pegasus people doing?”
“Good for what they had to deal with. In some ways it is a good thing that most are so young, they will bounce back better. With the help they are getting and time they should do fine.”
“That is good news. When they are better settled in we will start to find them better places to stay, real homes.”
“We have people working on that. The only problem they see so far is that we will need to keep them together. Spreading them out will not be a good thing. We will need to find someplace safe and sound for them. If they are in an attack the Docs think that will set them back a lot.”
“For now they will be safe were they are. We will find them a better place to call home once things settle down a bit more.”

“Sir we have a problem.”
“What is the problem?”
“We have just picked up a DropShip over Vulcan Arms.”
“How did it get over Vulcan and it was not picked up before?”
“The techs thing it way keeping low and we spotted it because of the station at Samar.”
“OK, get the GSF moving.”


OK people this is your new mission. Yes short notice but it goes with the mission  >:D

Standard force setup so pick 'em .... pick 'em good  :thumbsup:


And I did forget to say that any units that were part of the Fune missions are still in the field during this mission so they can not be used.

“I think that with Adept Wood’s unit, the Militia armored unit and what forces at my command Fune will be safe. We will stay and make repairs to our equipment.” Sho-ko Yang offers to Captain Jemma.
“That sounds like a good idea. All of you will make a good force to protect Fune until you can repir the battle damage.” Jemma offers back. “Inform you commanders that you will do your repairs here so they can arrange for supplies and repair crews to come here.”
“Hai Captain.”
“To all other commanders make one more pass in the area you are now in and then return to your respective Camps.” Jemma has the units with her move out.





“So from the reports so far the raid on Silverbridge makes no sense. The raiders did not swoop in fast to destroy the section that they did, they walked in giving the people time to get out. They attacked buildings that had tunnels so that anyone in said buildings had a good chance to get out. Then they destroyed the three factories. That is when the last of the local cameras went down. When the drone got on site they were attacking the same buildings. As the GSF closed in they did not make to get away and shot up the buildings more. When they did move off the Battlemechs moved off in three different directions, the Maxims all headed off to the east. The most troubling is why have the Battle Armor stay behind? They did not attack the forces that the GSF sent after them. They did not try to attack the civilians. They made sure not to trip sensors. I know that NPO is going over the tunnels to make sure that are still not in them to make for later problems but for now it looks like they just moved off.”
“Well that Battle Armor is forcing us to keep a large number of NPO and GSF people in Silverbridge. That just may be what they are looking for. WoB will know that we can’t walk away and that having the people of Silverbridge on edge work in their advantage.”
“I will have the site team go over everything once more just to make sure they did not overlook something.”
“It may be better to have a fresh team do that, the team on site just may not see something because they have been looking at it for so long.”
“True a fresh set of eyes just may find something. I will see that a new group is swapped in.”

“All security staff report to your stations. All other staff report to the shelters. We have incoming raiders.”
“Sir all the defense stations are online!”
“Good anything entering the area without the proper IFF is to be fired on.”
“Roger that sir!”





“Command group move to LZ Beta, attack group move to LZ Gamma.”





“OK we talked with Delm Franks and she spoke with the others and it looks like the project is a go.”
“Good. Do you think we will have any problems?”
“No sir. She was interested in what we had to say and made a few counter offers that are well in spec. She did see how this works for all.”
“We I have good news from the other fronts as well. We will get support from both the lady and her friend on this as well. We may even get support from the other local sources. They are checking funding levels.”
“How did you swing this?”
“With all that is going on many now have new requirements and our new products well be of great use to them.”
“How many others? We are looking to keep the small after all.”
“Just the two I just spoke of and three others.”
‘Can they be trusted?”
“Very much so.” Turning the screen so the others can see. “We will not have problems with them as investors. As you can see our number one investor will bring in one other group as well.”
“Well this is working better than we had hoped.”
“True and if we over produce we have an outlet for that as well.”
“How is that?”
“Keep in mind of who is now local.”
“You are right, I did not even think of him.”
“This is why I’m in the big chair and you work for me.”
“I will start to look into getting the equipment we need.”
“Please do and make sure you spread out what you get. We do not want someone finding out what we are doing because the see the machinery shipping here.”
“No problem sir we have already done some early work on this.”
“Good just stay on point with this.”





 “Well WoB may not be on point with security at that relay post but they have the best scramble codes I have seen. We have been tapped in for how long now and we still have not broken the codes. Now with all the white noise in the HPG grid it just made things even harder.”
“Well we will keep at what we have and hope it give us some clues of what they are doing.”
“What, all this old junk? How?”
“We may get some ideas of what their orders were and maybe unit lists.”
“Wow you have high hopes.”
“Gives me reasons to keep plugging away.”





“Sir we have the startup funds.”
“Good, start to get the machinery on the move.”
“Yes sir. What about the other parts?”
“I’m sure they will get that in time. But we need that machinery or none of this is going to work.”

Silverbridge is a chartered city founded about sixty years ago by the Sugai Dai Ichizoku, to more efficiently access their deposits of iron, carbon, clay, and silver in the area. The city claims about four hundred square kilometers of the badlands at the edges of the Eastern Desert, the Eastern Kiso Mountains, the Tiger Leap Canyons, and the Eastern Sea in the Argent Chiku. The end of the last geologic age saw the retreat of glaciers and the redirection of several rivers and the sea in the area, which left behind currently dormant volcanoes (Soren-san, Sparta Yama, Timber Mountain, and Mount Nonda), active fault zones (the Elsinore Rift, the Nankai Trench, and the Honey Lake Fault), and major deposits of iron, clay, dimension stones, kaolinite, feldspar, flint, fossils, salts, petrified wood, jadeite, obsidian, blue opal, beryl, quartzes, garnet, lead, zinc, lithium, uranium, nickel, azurite, copper, tungsten, mercury, silica, chromium, turquoise, tin, carbon, industrial diamonds, gold (mines 'produce' under one hundred tonnes per year), and silver. There are several steel mills (aogami, shirogami, tamahagane, gingami, stainless, molybdenum, damascus, and industrial), porcelain works, ferrocrete works, ceramic factories, glass factories, and military grade armor producers located in the slowly growing settlement. Even now decades after its founding, the city is still somewhat remote and secluded - at present there are no tollways through the chiku, and the population remains under twenty thousand residents. Until recently the city remained unnoticed by pirates and outside aggressors and was only occaisionally harassed by local bandits, due mostly to the bulk nature of its products. It is popular with artists and crafters in metal, clay, and stone. Bladesmiths and jewelry smiths are the fastest growing population due to the exemplary quality of the local resources. The newest addition to Silverbridge is Gossamer (publicly traded 38.7 Ryu per share), a textile company that combines fibers from the ironwoods of the Sequoia Rainforest, spider silks, and other natural fibers to produce fabrics used in personnel armor, sports equipment, athletic apparel, intimate apparel, space apparel and equipment, hazardous environment and materials handling apparel, storage and equipment, personal protective safety gear, compression wear, and support wear. Due to climate and geography supercells are common in this area producing torrential rains, flash floods, macrobursts, dust storms, tornadoes, and lightning clusters - therefore most of the still growing city is built underground in the Hebi Tani {snake valley}, or within Flower Peak (1472 meters) part of the Hebi Han'i {snake range} with tunnels connecting various areas of the city and mines, some as far as sixty kilometers away from the city center. Local travel around the city (outside of rail, water, and air) utilizes off road and all terrain vehicles as there are no paved roads above ground, and travel through the tunnel systems are restricted to electric or hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, some are large enough to accomodate fuel cell powered industrial mechs. Agriculture is mostly confined to 'ponic and vertical farms and greenhouses, with the exception of several herds of free-range domesticated deer, sheep, and goats which utilize specially trained guardian dogs and storm shelters within their grazing zones in the hills and mountains. The city center (mostly public buildings such as City Hall, the Guildhall Collegium, the hospital emergency entrance and landing pads, solar and wind farms, the Chiku offices {Rafe Vilkas MP}, and Hebi Station - a showstopper of marbled peach and green polished marble) is constructed of dimension stones, mostly basalt and granite, and military grade ballistic glass to withstand earthquakes and storms, with no building allowed over ten stories high - including the newly constructing NPO Tower and the Sugai Yoroi Zensho-chi {outpost}. Summer highs regularly reach forty degrees celsius which makes the city underground more comfortable to live and work, and so reaches as deep as thirty stories in places with spaces large enough for factories, sports fields, and concert halls. The landscape is dotted with sensor equipped camouflaged and secured cisterns, skylights, garage, and ventilation architecture. The north end of the valley hosts a small regional airport (Argent Aerodrome) and the inland Argent Canal waterway (suitable for narrowboats, river junks, and barges supplied by waysides and road stations at the locks) fed by a small offshoot of the Chikugo-gawa, the Gin-gawa {silver river}, that links to Silverbridge Port (currently only reachable by rail, air, and water) on the coast of the Eastern Sea at the outermost border of the city, approximately one hundred kilometers from the city center. Currently the biggest corporate entities in the city are Stark Heavy Industries - metal refineries and armor factories (publicly traded 1,810 Ryu per share), Light Au Naturale - manufactures solar tube lights, skylights, and natural daylight fixtures and bulbs (private), and Cypriot - manufactures organic ultra filtered and strained goat milk greek yogurt in plain and a dozen or so revolving seasonal flavors like berry smooth, lemon curd, pumpkin pie, and chocolate truffle (public 47.3 Ryu per share). Visitors are advised to be cautious and aware as most of the human habitation and activity is underground the wildlife has prerogative above and roams throughout the area with absolute freedom, including migrating herds (bighorn sheep, antlered rabbits, boar, goats, horses) and predators (cougar, eagle owl, coywolves, adder,
harpy eagle, landsharks {constrictor snake - six to eight meters}, novosaurs) willing and able to take down adult humans.

Pluoton is one of Jovian's largest moons with a rocky body that is mountainous and cratered, with no atmosphere, and a similar gravity to Nejiro (slightly less at 8.9m/s2 vs Nejiro's 10.8 m/s2). It has had mines operating for centuries (it was first established as a classified resource of the Terran Alliance Navy in 2219 during the Third Alliance Grand Survey) and is rich in metals and minerals, and is projected to be for millennia. The Free (domed) City of Pluoton has seven large domes (mines - entrances and offices, agriculture, industry - refining and processing, administration and commerce, recreation, residences, and port) and several dozen smaller domes plus several underground and orbital habitats. These are managed, operated, and governed cooperatively by the local Koichizoku Elders (Corvae, Yamana, Teck, Barrick, Sugano, Rokuda, Kase, Yap, Erdeli, Tsaplin, Xu, Wen, Durchenko, Ciar, Moon, Zhang, Seagha) and the Pluoton City Council led by elected Mayor Iskander Endika Moon. The mines (which produce carbons, platinum, iron, iridium, nickel, cobalt, hydrogen, ammonia, gold, copper, rare earths, silicates, iridium, palladium, magnesium, basalt and other elements) have created a labyrinth of numerous maze-like structures under the surface of the moon. There is a local resident population of approximately two million, which swells occaisionally with prospectors, students, and tourists. The Pluoton Militia, the Hadesu no Ryoken {hounds of hades} commanded by Ivan Subutai, is a large cooperative combined armed self-defense force (with a very aggressive space defense of small craft, armed drones and satellites, and aerospace fighters that are very prone to shoot down unauthorized vehicles and ships entering their space) that is operated by the collaborative resources of the Pluoton Koichizoku instead of small individual militias. It operates out of Sokutsu Fort, the original base of the Devil Dogs PMC (who still maintain facilities here). The NPO Celestial Patrol also maintains several towers and other facilities here on the moon. The Treasure Box maintains museum quality archives, histories, artifacts, and other educational materials from the geological and cultural past of Pluoton from its founding to its future.

Also on Pluoton:

Technora, headquartered on Pluoton, is a publicly traded multi-division corporation (1,653 Ryu per share) (its majority of shares held by the Pluoton Koichizoku - Yukari Corvae holds the Chairmans seat on the Board and Eryk Kase is the CEO) that includes mining, security, heavy industrial fabrication, manufacture of dropships (one to three civilian class to custom spec every five to seven years),manufacture of small craft and aerospace combat vehicles, refining and processing minerals, metals, and chemicals, the maintenance, storage, refit, resupply, and repair of small craft and dropships, manufacture of sealed combat and civilian vehicles, offers technical and engineering support services, operates stellar dockyards and marinas, operates stellar cargo and passenger services, operates stellar sightseeing and cruising tours, manufacture of heavy space capable mining equipment, manufacture of industrial and mining mechs, manufacture of  remote operated vehicles, manufacture of EXO and EVA suits, manufacture of space and other hazardous environment suits. Most well known of the divisions is the Debris Section - that prevents damage and destruction of satellites, stations, orbital paths, and spacecraft from debris using a number of methods including collection and pushing it through the gas giant atmospheres, and also recycling salvage accomplished through the use of personnel in EVA suits and modified space capable mining and industrial mechs deployed from small craft and Leopard class dropships, also collection by small remote operated vehicles, and small preprogrammed vehicles similar to Roomba that follow orbital paths and space lanes. Also well known is the Traders Section which handles much of the exportation of the raw and processed Pluoton Mines production.

Anjou Military Academy - 'character matters here' - a coed military boarding school that teaches cadets from middle school through college level classes and has optional summer classes, sports camps, and pilot learner programs (small craft and other aerospace ships).

There is rigorous academic instruction which focuses on the foundations of knowledge needed for critical thinking, learning skills, and leadership development, with an additional emphasis on physical activity and sports that promotes self confidence and instills an appreciation for fitness and teamwork. This focus on the whole person builds leaders of character prepared for life long success in the military or otherwise. Many of these graduates go on to honorable and respected careers in the Nejiro Militias and Merchant Fleets and also the DCA Fleet.

DaVinci University - academic programs that not only build students expertise in core areas of study and research but requires a considerable depth and exposure to basic science, humanities, math, and social sciences overall as the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary research, business, and society require the ability to make connections across disciplines. Our undergraduate programs include mechanical engineering, agricultural systems, applied physics, applied math, architectural science, biomechanical engineering, geomatics, mechatronic engineering, nutritional and food, built environments, civil engineering, applied arts, forensics, astrophysics, systems engineering, integrated engineering, information systems and technology, audio engineer, electronic engineer, geoengineering, surveying, languages and linguistics, civil responsibilities and government, literature and creative writing, civilizations and government, history and theories of art and architecture, folklore and mythology, theology, psychology, archeology, anthropology, visual and creative arts, fine and decorative arts, performance arts, film and media, etiquette, ethics and law. The university also keeps the largest print and digital library in system, with more than fifty million works.   

Skylark Communications - the oldest civilian telecomm in the stellar system, established shortly after the first mining operations on Pluoton and Naiba Showakusei-tai were producing significant results in the twenty third century, currently they provide secure consumer, commercial, and industrial communications through proprietary satellite technology, that is available throughout the stellar system. They offer wireless smartphone services on terrestrial bodies, satellites, stations, and habitats. They manufacture the Jiyuna {free, unfettered} line of foldable smartphones, smartwatches, and tablets (sizes from five to nine hundred centimeters available). They have their own chip foundry, and manufacture a wide array of communication technology from microphones, to fiber optic cable to satellites. They have the most cutting edge research and development division in the system and are a leading developer of low orbit man-portable satellites. A publicly traded company recently valued at 1,779 Ryu per share. Their logo is a murmuration that resembles a bird in flight.   

Anvil - occupies their own dome on Pluoton with labs, farms, factories, and residences. They make handcrafted tools, transparent metals, metal alloys, ceramic compounds, industrial and commercial textiles. They own major stakes in several stellar mines and quarries. (publicly traded at 68.3 Ryu per share)   

Stratos - stellar charter offering scheduled and private passenger and cargo services to all ports in system (public company currently valued at 35.61 Ryu per share)     

Pluoton Community Garden - 'ponic farms that raise oxygenating and filtering plants, butterflies, ladybugs, bees, grains, shellfish, fish, sea greens, coral, beans, garden vegetables, fruits, nuts, tubers, herbs, chicken, pheasant, and operates relaxation gardens and aquariums
