The Type 2 Shuttle is the main personnel transport shuttle in use by Starfleet in in the 2250's. Type type 2 shuttle was first introduced in 2244 they quickly adopted by the commanding officers of ships and star bases in the fleet as replacements for a quickly ageing fleet of Class C Shuttles.
The interior of the Type 2 is divided into a forward and aft section with the froward section taking up the majority of the interior volume. At the front of the forward section are the pilot and copilot stations arranged so that the two crew members are facing the forward view port. the remainder of the forward section is the passenger area and is equipped with seats for up to ten passengers arranged along the port and starboard bulkheads so that the passengers are facing the opposite bulkhead while seated. There is a row of view ports along the port and starboard bulkheads just above the level of the back rest of the passengers seats. Emergency supplies are held in storage compartments housed behind the backrests of each seat. Each seat can be folded down allowing the shuttle to carry cargo or equipment if so required.
A bulkhead with a set of heavy bulk head doors separate the forward and aft sections. This allows the use of the aft section as an airlock allowing someone to exit the craft while in space with out having to expose the total volume of the shuttles interior. Just forward of this bulkhead there is an access hatch that allows personnel to enter and exit the craft through the dorsal surface of shuttles hull.
The aft section housed the entry hatch and primary environmental controls. The primary access hatch is circular in shape and is designed to allow the shuttle to dock with docking ports located in the outer hulls of various ships in the fleet.
