Shuttle design

Basic Imperial shuttle

-Interior for human interaction is divided to cockpit, passenger hold, nutrient dispenser, sanitation closet, airlock and engine sanctum.

-Tactical targets for critical hits at space combat: Cockpit, passenger hold, life support, sensors, installed component/s, drive.

-Following components included (may be damaged by critical hits) to basic shuttle template:


  • Flight radar and control, reveals size and movement of objects within Astronomical Unit.
  • Vox communications, channel for open communication, basic range to own orbit  and far range to neighboring orbits within the system.
  • Pilot seat

Life support

  • Life stabilizer, 18 weeks life support, filters for recycled air and water, stores waste.
  • Standard nutrient puddy dispenser, (color choices of the puddy during the flight are brown or red), 18 weeks of nutrition, large pressurized canister of raw puddy (grey).
  • Sanitation closet for disposing bio-waste and sanitation.

Passenger hold

  • Passenger seats for 12 persons
  • Imperial air lock


  • Communication/Navigation laser, For secured communication and targeting landings to star fortress docking or land bound spaceport. Can be used as a range sensor.

Additional components
