Shuttle Crafts

The ship is incapable of landing on planets due to its size. With no other means of getting down to the planet, shuttle crafts were incorporated into the ship's design. There are four different types of shuttles. 

Maintenance Shuttle

Maintenance ShuttleThe Maintenance Shuttle is used for repairing the outside of the ship. Claws come out of the protrusions at the front of the shuttle to be used like hands. They are controlled by a pair of gloves worn by the pilot.

This shuttle only carries the pilot; therefore, all Engineering Personnel are required to learn how to fly this type.

The Explorer Class carries two Maintenance Shuttles but can house up to eight. They are easily created and broken down as the need arises.

 Type A – Short Range Shuttles

Type AThe Type A – Short range Shuttle has many uses. Should a team require to don EVA suits and work on the hull, they could use a Type A Shuttle. This shuttle is also used for transport from one ship to another, or for transporting down to planet surfaces.

This shuttle can carry six crew members, including the pilot.

The Explorer Class carries four Type A – Short Range Shuttles.

 Type B – Long Range Shuttles

Type BThe Type B – Long Range Shuttle is mainly used for long distances, but can be used like the Type A, if necessary. There are bunks for two personnel to be able to sleep, should the need arise. It also has food storage for the distant trips.

While the Type B is 2m (6.56 in) longer than the Type A, it still only carries six crew members, including the pilot.

The Explorer Class carries two Type B – Long Range Shuttles.

 Type C Cargo Shuttle (Bubba)

BubbaThe fourth type of shuttle is the Cargo Shuttle, nicknamed Bubba. This is the biggest shuttle carried by the Explorer Class Ship. Bubbas are big enough to carry just over half the crew each, but not in comfort. With no cargo, seating for forty is capable, but not recommended… except in an emergency.

The Explorer Class carries two Type C – Cargo Shuttles.
