    Post [SF] Mercury X-9 Commercial Shuttle

    The WIP thread can be found here. I added the lower level and tweaked the middle level (which is now called the upper level since there are only two levels ).

    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).

    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.
