In 2764 SLS Shikohime was the flagship of Vice Admiral Napolita Daitokuji, the commanding officer of the 174th Line Squadron within the Star League Defense Force Seventeenth Fleet. Vice Admiral Daitokuji and her squadron - nicknamed the Alpha Cygni Squadron - had a successful history for several years as effective pirate hunters, but the transfer of the 174th into the Free Worlds League to provide security for SLDF supply lines had resulted in a decline in Vice Admiral Daitokuji's performance, with rumours circulating that having to face ships from one of the member states had led to a personal descent into alcoholism.[1]
