         The S-7A bus performs many of the same duties as the ST-46 shuttle, although its non-aerodynamic shape prevents it from operating in atmosphere. The bus is found on many space stations and JumpShips, and even some DropShips carry S-7As. Because the S-7A operates in space only, it can transport slightly more cargo than the aerodyne ST-46 even though it uses a less powerful drive.
         The S-7A class bus is divided into three distinct modules. The passenger/crew module forms the front section of the craft. Up to ten passengers and the pilot can occupy this module. A large airlock at the rear end of the module provides access to the outside and the cargo module.
         The cargo module comprises two self-contained bays connected by a large cargo door. The main bay holds up to 40 tons of cargo and has doors leading into the passenger airlock and the secondary hold. The secondary hold also has a door that opens to the outside and a second, smaller door that leads into the engineering module. This secondary bay has an independent pressurization system and acts as a cargo airlock for the main bay.
         The small engineering module contains the S-7Aís small fusion reactor and drive system. In emergencies the engineering module can be accessed via a small maintenance hatch in the cargo module. However, in normal operation no need exists for personnel to enter this area, and it is rarely pressurized.
         Explosive bolts link the three modules, which enable an S-7A crew to detach any of the sections should the need arise. Framework situated around the cargo module allows any two of the vesselís modules to remain intact and operational if a single module is jettisoned. Rejoining any jettisoned modules is a major operation and requires a well-equipped repair team.
