The Gladiator has 4 large cargo bays, two each in the primary and secondary hulls. These expansive spaces have multistage space doors under the decking for rapid loading of large amounts of cargo, though loading cargo in this manner is almost always carried out at a starbase. Each cargo bay is also outfitted with a high volume, low resolution transporter for rapid loading and unloading of cargo.
Typically, two of the cargo bays are reserved for standard ship stores, such as spare parts, tools, and consumables not handled by the replicators. The remaining cargo bays are kept relatively empty for ferrying cargo.
Additionally, it is in the cargo bays that the ship's industrial replicators are. These large capacity replicators are used to replicate custom parts, or parts simply too large or dangerous to be kept on hand.
