Section VI: Other (Modules)

Standard Workbee cabs can have up to 4 of the following attachments without additional power sources.
Clamper: Magnetic lock forward
Cutter: Type 2 Phaser
Drone: Unmanned automated cockpit (transport between locations)
Floodlight: 7000 candela flood or tight beam
Grabber: Forward manipulator arm

Tow: Magnetic lock aft

Additional power comes through two optional power packs:
Booster: Class 1/E Impulse Engine for propulsion or power use.
Heavy Booster: Class 2/E Impulse Engine for propulsion or power use.

Attachments may be combined above 4 with by including a booster.
Composite 1: Multi-attachment (Booster and up to 4 attachments)
Composite 2: Multi-attachment (Heavy Booster and up to 6 attachments)

  • A Workbee 'train' differs from the 'Tow' attachment by the load it can move. There are three modules (or pods) that can be attached in any order.
  • Modules include Cargo pods, Passenger pods or Tanker pods.
  • If more than 2 pods are attached a 'booster' or 'heavy booster' is needed for additional power and propulsion.

Section VII: Editors Notes

Found in every shipyard and base, and many ships, workbees are light utility craft slightly smaller than shuttlepods. They are used primarily for construction and repair work. Using the 'tow' attachment they may be used as 'trains' to haul cargo or passengers a short distance (between orbital sites / ships in dock).

They are not to be confused with the Sphinx-class Workpod.
