As standard, the Narcissus was designed to carry a crew of three, including a pilot, co-pilot and science officer, although the interior could be easily modified to seat more crew members if necessary.
For long duration travel, the shuttle contains two hypersleep capsules, although long-range interstellar transit is not the vessel's primary purpose.
.::Energy and propulsion::.
The Narcissus is powered by a 9gW microfusion reactor that drives two Newington A-24 rocket motors. These engines employ water as the reaction mass. Engine thrust can be variably vectored through two forward or four rearward thrust tunnels, allowing the shuttle to move with equal speed in either direction; indeed, the Narcissus was designed to evacuate the Nostromo in reverse when used as an emergency escape vehicle.
For interstellar travel, a Romberg 100C tachyon shunt can propel the Narcissus at low faster-than-light speeds. Fully fuelled, the vessel has a range of 13 parsecs.
