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 constructed 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 ft.) 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)

Big 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.

Fighters

Though the Sooloo was not originally equipped with a fighter, one was givenThe Endou to them by the Draconians, or more specifically,  Meagear Endou. The Draconians made two new fighters and gave one to the Sooloo, mainly for Danny Harper, but any officer with pilot training could fly her. Meagear Endou named his new fighter 'The Harper" so Danny named his 'The Endou.'

The Fighter can carry the Pilot, Co-Pilot and a Gunner. While the Pilot has the ability to fly alone, there are times when all three may be needed in extreme battles.

The Sooloo has one Draconian Fighter and only four SF-Fighters.
