BW1
BW2

  • The contents of this weapons cell were obliterated during the Naksa; the multi-stage One Chinese missile that penetrated BCX and destroyed the centripetal drive and killed the ship’s captain passed through here.
    BW3
  • Contains an electromagnetic field generator once used to launch and retrieve attack craft from the adjacent hangar.
    BW4
  • An oddity—this cell is an IDR exclave named Taprobana (or Cooch Behar?), accessible only by a fragile maintenance tunnel strung along the skin of the Rann of Kutch. Like BW3, it contains an electromagnetic field generator.
    BX1
  • The gend.
    BCX
  • The only cell which crosses the gravity plane. Containing the functioning gravity centrifuge and once containing the centripetal drive, BCX occupies two full levels of the ship and reaches 160 meters from ceiling to floor.

Level C
CC1

  • This cell includes one of the three “border crossings” between nations.
    CC2
    CC3
  • Once serving as the ship’s bridge and nerve center, cell CC3 is now a shared demilitarized zone through which quarterly trade passes when all other border crossings are sealed. This cell includes one of the three “border crossings” between nations.
    CC4
    CC5
  • This cell includes one of the three “border crossings” between nations.
