The WIP thread can be found here (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=5757). I added the lower level and tweaked the middle level (which is now called the upper level since there are only two levels :P).

MERCURY X-9 COMMERCIAL SHUTTLE

Production Information
Manufacturer: Dynastra Industries
Class: Shuttle

Technical Specifications
Length: 68.58 meters (225 feet)
Hyperdrive System: None
Crew: Pilots (5), Stewards (4)
Passengers: 60
Cargo Capacity: 792.87 cubic metres (28,000 cubic feet)
Other Systems: Two days

Usage
Role(s): Short-range commercial shuttle, courier
Affiliation: Various corporations and/or civilian governments

13800

13797

I picture the pilots and/or stewards will double as the "engineering" crew with any major repairs done by qualified personal at a spaceport. The storage area would be for the customer's luggage and for anything else a customer or company might want to ship (as long as they can afford it).

So in essence...a space plane?

Great job...

You got it, SG. If you were stuck earthside and wanted to go to one of the orbiting casinos or to one of the moonbases, you would book a flight on one of these babies. ;)
