Default What is contained in a Bridge?

What is contained in a Bridge?

This is what I use IMTU for bridge design.
Standard bridge tonnage is 20 Dtons minimum or .02 percent of ship tonnage.
Half of the tonnage would be Control room, the rest would be avionics, control thrusters, communication and power lines, landing gear, and basic sensors.
Bridge tonnage is .5% of total tonnage for each type included, Maneuver, Jump, Avionics, Streamlining, Detachable, and Command Bridge. Absolute minimum is Maneuver, Landing gear, Control Thrusters and Avionics. A backup bridge group can be placed adjacent to Engineering at the same size and cost as the prime bridge. A compact bridge is 25% smaller, same cost and cause a 1-point skill check deduction on all bridge skill checks due to its small size.
Landing gear is almost always depicted as flat pads. If those pads are actually strong gravatic plates with the capability to maintain a 6-inch gap, it would act as wheels allowing frictionless movement across most surfaces. The plates would not be useful for water landings.

The Control room area would contain most manned areas
control thrusters, Powered, .005% Tonnage, mandatory
communication, Powered, Manned in Control room
power lines, Powered, in conduits with all other plumbing.
landing gear, Powered, .005% Tonnage, mandatory
basic sensors, Powered, Manned in Control room, mandatory
Maneuver Bridge, Powered, Manned in Control room, .005% Tonnage, mandatory
Jump Bridge, Powered, Manned in Control room, .005% Tonnage, mandatory for jump drives
Avionics, Powered,
Streamlining, .05% Tonnage
Detachable Bridge, Powered, Manned separate Control room, 50% larger than regular bridge
Command Bridge, Powered, Manned separate Control room, 80 Dtons, +1 DM Tactics
Backup bridge, Powered, Manned in Control room, same size as primary bridge
Compact bridge, -25% of standard bridge for than size ship. -1DM all bridge skills

Microwave (oven).


All kidding aside, depends on edition, since the default bridge is capped at sixty tonnes in Mongoose, and if an astrogation station is required on a starship, is it required on a non starship?

Where's the head for the bridge/control room crew on duty?

This is from of my old house rules for Mongoose 1st Ed:

Control Room tonnage (minimum)

Ship size
100 tons – 1,000 tons = 7 tons
Cost = MCr. 0.5

Consists of:
2 tons = Default sensors
1 ton = One air lock
1 ton = Ship's Locker
1 ton = Default computers and electronics
1 ton = Two Work Stations (usually for the Pilot & Astrogator)

Ship size
Over 1,000 tons = 9 tons
Cost = MCr. 1

2 tons = Default sensors
1 ton = One air lock
1 ton = Ship's Locker
3 tons = Default computers and electronics
1 ton = Two Work Stations (usually for a Pilot & Astrogator)

Each additional Control Room position (Gunner, Sensor operator, Co-Pilot, etc.) requires 1/2 ton of additional Work Station space. Each Command position (Officers who supervise) in the Control Room also requires another 1/2 ton of added Control Room space.

The cost of the additional Control Room space/workstations is MCr. 0.05 per ton.

All the hard number crunching is on Jump Calcs.

Ship's locker is the only thing in that list I believe based on my reading of the rules. the other stuff goes into the commons which are not part of the bridge (and commons are part of stateroom tonnage as that tonnage is only partially for the actual stateroom but also for passageways and commons)

Urinals save space.

Or diapers.

With a twenty tonne Classic bridge, I make the assumption that a one tonne fresher, a two tonne airlock, and a one tonne ship's locker are included.
