Passenger Haulage

Post by Elkhorn »

Hybrid Alien/Human pod.

This pod, due to the necessity of extra habitat controls, would be slightly smaller in capacity allowing 3 of each class (human (9), Alien (9).

Allow a slow increase in Alien presence in the "human" worlds.

Elk, doesn't this already exist?

The series of cabins starting with the Nostromo Cryo Cabin carries both Human and Alien passengers.

Or did you mean something else?

"Nostromo Cyro Cabin, Alien cargo expander, yada, yada, yada. ...multirole system allowing transport of Aliens and humans. Hmm."
Yells at his A.I. Richardson! Why didn't you tell me about this when I was talking to you about how to best leverage the new systems?"
"I know I didn't specifically ask! I shouldn't have to! You are an A.I. for frack sake! Figure it out!"
Err, thanks MrOpsO!

All passenger hybrid systems are on my book to be 'expanded' and created anew in some instances. Fret not, I just have to get to it. Currently, my attention is focused on the Battleship creation phase. I can wander off-topic once that's complete whilst you all scramble to shake and bake your ideal Battleship.

Don't berate yourself Elkhorn !!

Any other passenger pod or Hybrid Passenger Pod - such as the Shadowsword allow for Passengers and Cargo to be carried. This is true for all Galaxies with the exception of the Expanse.
In there, one needs a specific Cargo Expander to carry Alien Cargo and a specific Passenger Pod or Expander to carry Alien passengers.

What I think is needed is this: A Hybrid Javoran Expander/Passenger module along the lines of the Shadowsword or regular Expander which would allow both Alien and Human passengers and also allow Alien and human Cargo to be carried.
