Here are my current thoughts on how Melody is configured:
Before Mitchell "acquired" it, Melody was a rich man's pleasure-yacht, and it still shows many signs of this. The port cargo bay isn't really a cargo bay; it's configured as a comfort area/common room, with entertainment facilities, a galley, and even bathrooms for the passengers who bunk in the port-side bunks, which are divided off from the rest of the ship by an air-tight bulkhead door, giving passengers some privacy from the crew. The centrepiece of the passenger area is the grand piano kept there, which the Captain is very protective of - it's one of his prize possessions.
There are three crew quarters along the starboard side of the cockpit capsule; the first quarter, behind the cockpit's bulkhead, is reserved for the pilot (who also enjoys a private-ish toilet across the hall on the port side). The cockpit has stations for a pilot and co-pilot, along with a navigator/gunner (not that Melody has any armaments) position. The other two crew quarters, outside the cockpit's bulkhead, are reserved for the captain and the first mate.
The starboard bunks are reserved for the crew; currently divided (by necessity) between men and women, which means Twitch is currently enjoying a private bunk (or possibly shared with only Yun), while Cheong, Bruce and Saker all share the other bunk. There's easy access to the cargo bay from the crew bunks.
Engineering is belowdecks; all the nuts and bolts and engines and turbines and what have you are there. The crew galley doesn't have a ladder in the middle of it, giving the crew a bit more room, as well as two bathrooms (and showers) to share; by tradition, the Captain has private use of one bathroom for an hour a day. The crew area also includes a medical bay (on the starboard side), while there is a storage room - the Captain holds the only key - on the port side used to secure cargo that must be kept secure, or as a holding place for anything which the passengers wish to insure kept safe. The Captain usually insists that passengers store their weapons in the secure storage.
Passengers are usually confined to the port common area and kept out of crew areas; most passengers are happy with this arrangement.
Note: each cargo bay has its own loading ramp, so passengers can be kept completely isolated from any cargo the ship may be carrying.
Any thoughts on this?
