2009-0124 - Storage Space . A selection of storage rooms found on the Ember Rayne. Includes the Janatorial Closet, the Ship's Store, and a regular closet. . Aside from the actual cargo holds, the Ember Rayne has several smaller storage areas, used more in day to day operations than the larger cargo areas. These stores contain consumable supplies, small parts, maintainable equipment, cleaning supplies, and foodstuffs.
Pictured above is the Janitorial Closet, which is typical of storage areas on the ship. It contains several shelves of supplies, a small sink, a rack of cleaning tools (like a broom), a vacuum cleaner and a floor buffer. The Janitor has placed a chair in there for when he rests his eyes during those 6 hour breaks.
From the outside, the Janitorial Closet looks much like other rooms of the ship. It has a standard door, marked black as a semi-restricted work area, and sports a typical computer console. The console ties into ship wide systems such as communications, and can also be used by the janitor to check work orders and supply inventories.
This picture is a mini-figure's eye view inside the janitorial closet, with the vacuum, buffer, and sink removed.
Some close ups of the shelves. The side shelf image also shows the equipment rack. You really don't want to know why the janitor might need an axe or shovel.
This image shows more detail of the shelves, but also you can see the little overhead light that (poorly) illuminates the room.
Demonstrated by a manikin, these pictures show the floor buffer and very futuristic looking vacuum cleaner – essentials for janitorial work. The space fleet apparently didn't want to spring for an army of Roombas.
The Ship's Store, which is located just behind the galley, stores foodstuffs, kitchen utensils, and other cooking and dining supplies. It is built on a similar model as the Janitorial Closet, which is why I didn't give it its own page, but it is wider and has a few extra details.
On the outside of the ship's store is this freezer chest. Some frozen goods can be kept in here.
The large cargo crate inside the store is used for refrigerated goods, and is a standard mini-module. Here is the mini-module bay with the crate removed. Behind it, there is another shelf with larger items stored on and in front of it. The ship's store also has better lighting than the janitorial closet.
Rounding out the storage areas of the ship are the regular storage closets. They are built on the same model as the mini-module shop kiosks, but the store counter and computer are replaced with a small table, a sink, and some additional storage space. The Ember Rayne has two mini-module bays ready to be reconfigured to meet mission demands, but when not in use they are used as closets like these. The last picture here shows the closet inserted into one of the bays.
