Shuttles / Shuttlebay rules question

posted Jul 05, 2018 20:23:05 by Nizaster
p233 says a ship can support Scale-1 shuttles at one time. Is this the same as the number of shuttles a ship can carry or just the number that can operate at one time?

On a large starship this probably doesn't matter as much because a Galaxy class probably has a plethora of shuttles, but on a smaller vessel on an extended mission it could matter. so is this number the total number the ship carries, or just how many can "operate" at one time? So far what I have been doing is allowing the ship to carry 2x's that number which seems reasonable. I like to give the crew a diverse set of shuttles to choose from, probably doesn't matter 99% of the time, but I like to give them the option.

That is how manny shuttle can be operates simultaneously during a single Mission. You can carry as many shuttles as you think fit in the cargo bays of your starship. Remember, in Star Trek technology is awesome. Damages shuttles can be repaired and destroyed shuttles replaced or new ones build from scratch. If you wanna select the craft before hand, do it freely. Enterprise NX and Voyager both had Shuttles explode, and in the next episode a new shuttle would appear as new. NX could probably fit only 2 whole shuttles at any time, Intrepid probably 4-6 at any time.

Ah, well, it appears the Galaxy can hold quite a plethora of shuttles. p245 it says 10 type 6 or 7, 10 type 9a and 12 shuttlepods. Wish they had done this for all the ships, but based on that I'll just use a ratio to the scale, so 5x the ships scale. That will probably work for most 24th century ships.

haha, nevermind, the description of 4 shuttles for the intrepid blows that theory out of the water...I guess I'll just make something up myself that seems reasonable.

The Intrepid CARRIES a bunch of shuttles, my reasearh indicates that there are 4 type 7, 13 type 9, 1 type 11, and 3 workbees. Four of which can be deployed at a time. She also has an aeroshuttle which doesn't count towards the total deployed shuttles.

It would appear that the replicaters in the shuttle bay are capable of creating parts and sub assemblies allowing the construction of more shuttles. The Voyager went through more shuttles than she was listed as carrying.

agree. Replacement shuttles for a deep space mission can be fabricated, but that does take time and resources.

Considering that the replicators recycle the trash and other refuse, both organic and not, not so much resources other than power. A thing that I found odd when I first noticed it...there are no laundry facilities on a starship. They recycle dirty clothes.

Steve, they do have some kind of "Cleaning processor/Garment reprocessor" in TNG
