The Ben Casey (ベン・ケーシー, Ben Kēshī) is a military hospital ship where the Bentenmaru crew were quarantined following infection with a virus.

DesignEdit

ExteriorEdit

There are two circular segments on either side of the ship with connecting sections between them at either end and a central block in the middle. A tower is located in the centre of the vessel. There are several sections extruding from the outer segments.

InteriorEdit

The ship has various facilities and rooms that would be expected of a hospital ship, such as isolation wards [1]. The canteen is located in a large hall [2].

Colour SchemeEdit

The Ben Casey is primarily white with a blue-green band around the tower and on the borders of the outer segments. There is an emblem painted on the tower, with a pink heart and a blue planet with a ring around it, in front of the bottom of the heart.

HistoryEdit

Hakuoh Pirates ArcEdit

While the Bentenmaru was transporting a cargo of cat-monkeys, a timer set on the bio-container opened it up and released its occupants, one of which was infected with a virus that spread through the ship's ventilation system. The Bentenmaru's crew were taken to the Ben Casey and placed in quarantine while the ship was disinfected [1]. As they weren't likely to be let out of quarantine before the Letter of Marque expired, Marika had to find a substitute crew. The Bentenmaru crew remained on the Ben Casey while the subsequent events unfolded, aiding Marika in what way they could from within quarantine.

TriviaEdit

  • The ship is named after the protagonist of a medical drama on the same name which aired in the 1960s.
