Deck Plans



The development of artificial grav generators during the Second Sathar War has changed the way ships are laid out. As opposed to the perpindicular to long axis arrangements of older ships, modern ship's decks are laid out parallel to the ship's long axis and generally employ a three-deck design, as follows:

Crew Deck: The topmost deck of most starships, containing crew quarters and other amenities for crew use.

Middeck: The working area of the ship, holding the hangar bay, bridge, galley, sickbay and much of the ship's engineering spaces.

Gunnery Deck: The bottomost deck of a ship, this area holds the controls(and ordinance bays) to most of the ship's weapons and defensive systems.


Cargo Bay: Generally, the cargo bay is situated directly behind the three main decks and accessible by cargo doors either in the dorsal or ventral sections of the spaceframe, as well as by hatches on any of the three main decks.


Void Engine Placement


On most starships, the Void engine(s) is integrated into the spaceframe, as opposed to being placed on struts. The engine(s) is sealed off from the rest of the ship, bathed in supercoolant(to aid in power generation, containment and overall efficency) and are tended to almost exclusively by robots. Void engine(s) are remotely controlled and monitored from the engineering spaces on the middeck.




Military starships tend to place their bridges at the center of their middeck areas, for greater security and safety. As opposed to being glassed in(having windows), starship bridges are equipped with holoprojectors showing the view of space as rendered by the ship's sensors, cameras and subspace radar systems.
