Although called Shuttlebay 1, only one vessel docks here. The Aerowing-class survey craft. There is no traditional shuttlebay door, as the ventral hull of the Aerowing forms the floor of the shuttlebay. Shuttlebay 1 is located on Deck 9 of the primary hull.
The Aerowing carried aboard the Gladiator is named the Gettysburg II. Designed and constructed with many similarities to the Danube-class runabout, the Aerowing shares a bridge and aft compartment layout with the runabout. Differing are the interconnecting compartments. The Danube is designed to have its center compartments swappable, whereas the Aerowing has permanent compartments. Between the bridge and aft compartment are a science lab, small medical 'closet', and a berth.
