There are many features on the Nella 342 that should be explained. First is the power core, it's located at the ship's center. Slightly larger cores can be installed but will cause problems due to the tight fit (+1D added to repair difficulty). Behind the power core is the hyperdrive, and behind the hyperdrive are the ion engines. Entering the Nella 342 is done through the underbelly elevator, the starboard aft docking ring, the forward cargo door or the upper hatch which lowers passengers to the main deck. The ship's shield projectors are located on the extreme ends of the port and starboard hull projections. The sensors are all located along the port edge of the ship.
The Nella has maintenance crawlspaces above and below the main deck. These crawlspaces were designed with droids in mind and are tight, hot, and very uncomfortable for humans to use. The lower crawlspace contains the ship's repulsor lifts, consumables storage tanks, artificial gravity generators, shield generators, and landing gear assemblies. The upper crawlspace contains life support systems, the upper hatch airlock equipment, escape pod ejection systems, and the ion drive exhaust system. Crawlspaces can be accessed through the various floor and ceiling gratings. The escape pod are one-man models which launch up and exit the ship via blow-away hatches on the ship's dorsal hull (see PES-550 for more information).
