Becarl Command Center Module Layout
The Command Center for the Becarl is circular with consoles along the circumference of the wall. Facing towards the fore sections of the vessel is a large screen that spans from floor to ceiling. The room's ceiling is 5 meters off the floor, to allow room for the Captain of the vessel to stand on the elevated level of the "command deck." The Command Deck (CD) is a circular platform 3 meters in diameter, raised 1 meter off the deck of the ship. There are rails all around this command deck, with only one staircase on and off it. Attached to the rails are sensor monitors and smaller consoles so if necessary, the Captain can do all the basic functions of the vessel. Each Captain has his own preference towards seating. Some prefer sitting, others prefer to stand. So when a new Captain boards his vessel, he can either get rid of or bring in a chair for him to sit on. This chair would be fixed in front of the fore most consoles of the railing, facing the screen and can swivel around the rails. All of the consoles in the Becarl's Command Center can be pushed in to the wall if greater space is needed. For instance, the science console, which does not serve as much purpose on this vessel, can quite easily be put away to create room for officers to move around.
Becarl Engine Room Module Layout
The Engine Room is located above the main Vortex drive area, but there are stairs and lifts down to the Vortex Maintenance rooms. The Engine Room is called so because they regulate the Vortex drive from it and the rest of the systems on the ship. The Main Engine Room is a large, square room with a big circular table in the middle. From either side of the room, four corridors lead off. One to the lifts, which will take you to the rest of the ship and one for the stairs, and lifts from which you can access the Vortex Drive. A third to access a medium sized room, which deals with power distribution, and the fourth will take you to the rest of the deck. As is always necessary in any Engine Section, space is essential because there are lots of Engineers. The corridors on this deck are twice the size to accommodate lots of people during a crisis. Consoles line all of the walls and the large table is covered with them too.
Becarl Fighter Bay Module Layout
The fighter bays stretch most of the aft section of the Becarl. Lined up in a row, their noses pointed towards the large doors that control their entry and exit (2 fighters sit side by side in front of every door.) This is done so there is no time wasted in launching the vessels; they can all leave at once. This long stretched Fighter Bay requires several doors. There are 3 located along the back wall. An observation level is located 10 meters above the floor, so people are able to watch and monitor the fighter craft launch.
