Shuttle bay

NotesImages
Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Shuttle bay1

Facility on board a space vessel which is dedicated to storing, launching and landing shuttlecraft.1 Most Federation shuttle bays are equipped with a forcefield which allows shuttles to pass through whilst holding the atmosphere inside, thus allowing the bay to operate without having to depressurise.2 Standard practice is to bring shuttles aboard via a tractor beam rather than under their own power, although this can be done in an emergency.3
