The Botany Bay class starships have a particularly specialized mission statement. To provide a mobile spaceborne platform for scientific research of all sorts. The best known feature of the Botany Bay Class Research Vessel is the variable configuration capability. The ship is a framework on which modules of different sizes, weights and shapes can be attached. This provides the ability for the ship to be on station doing their research while the next missions modules are being prepared and makes the turn around time minimal. The static portion of the ship features a Command Center, a Central Framework with two Atmospheric Research Ships/Probe Bays, The central Framework houses the support, crew and staff quarters and living spaces. The Power and Engineering Section houses 4 Vortex I Engines as well as a sub-Vortex navigating propulsion system. The ship does have the two permanent Bays, though if needed additional Ship Bays can be attached. The ship has the capability for extended missions depending on configuration, however the average mission is 20 to 50 months long.
