Compartment A1

The bridge of a Javelin-type spacecraft, Compartment A1 contains four modular command stations for crew and two folding jump seats for crew or passengers. Aboard the Daedalus, the stations are configured for engineering, co-pilot, pilot, and communications. Pilot and co-pilot stations have access to the Jumpnet and weapons, while the engineering station features a module that allows for manual positioning of the secondary engines. The communications console is a “base” command module, capable of most of the functions of the other stations but lacking specialized hardware.

The bridge is a very long, narrow space, more akin to a tractor trailer cab or an attic crawlspace than the command spaces of larger spacecraft such as the Cheops or the Sabrosa. It is the only spacecraft interior to feature ashtrays – two, on the center console.
