The Odyssey is an aerodynamically streamlined vessel capable of atmospheric flight as well as travel in space. It is equally capable of a water as well as a ground landing. The external hull is painted with matte dark gray paint .The ship's fins contain the main landing gear and its machinery. The nose comes to point 10' beyond the front hatch. The ship's small shuttle sits in forward of the crew deck under the ships solar sails.

Cargo Deck:
The Odyssey may be accessed through the forward cargo ramp, which also contains a personnel hatch for use when the larger cargo hatch is not required. Machinery to raise/lower the ramp is located below removable deck grid deck plates in the main hold and in engineering.
The ramps lead directly onto the hold on the lower deck, which is 20' in height and 40' long and sloping from 30' wide to 45' wide. The cargo bay will accommodate up to 60 tons of cargo. The cargo hold deck plates may be raised to allow access to ship's systems and the auxillary fuel pods located between the outer hull and the deck. On the Starboard end of the cargo bay one of the personnel/cargo lifts. This one can be lowered down to the ground beneath the ship, or raised up to the secondary hold on mid-deck.
The mid-ship section of the lower level contains 2 arms/munitions lockers, 8 recoilless, mini-cannons in their own concealed airlocks, and the main hydrogen fuel pod.
The aft third of the lower deck is the engineering section, containing the fusion and pulse drives, grav-spinner, life support, waste disposal, and the ship's computer core and stairs up to the crew deck.

Crew Deck:
The mid-level, or crew deck, contains the Captain and XO's quarters and the 12 crew/passenger cabins. Each of the quarters contain its own fresher and toilet facility.
The forward section has a secondary cargo bay and contains the EVA locker and can contain the ship's mule. Stairs and an elevator lead down to the primary cargo bay.
At the aft of this level is an elevator, and stairs leading down to engineering (starboard) and up to the bridge level (port).
The deck is 10' in height but has 8' head clearance.

Bridge Deck:
The upper deck contains the bridge (pilot, tactical/sensors, nav/comm. & captains stations), the messhall/dayroom, the galley, the pantry, the freezer, the doctor/medics office, the pharmacy and the infirmary. The lift and stairs at the aft end of this deck lead back down to the mid-level.
The deck is 10' in height but has 8' head clearance.

NOTE: All access to the ship via external hatches and ramps, and all internal and external hatches, may be controlled and locked/unlocked from the bridge. All bridge operations can be controlled by one person from the pilot's station.
