Above is the M3GOBS observatory module, a popular choice where civilian traffic is considerable.

M3 modules are used to transport a variety of passengers and cargo. These modules can be fitted to satisfy demanding transport conditions from alternative life support sections to radioactive substances.
 

Modules are simple, yet functional, and can be assembled into a wide variety of configurations, virtually limited only by imposed stresses of configuration.

 

Each end of the module employs an airlock fitted with the standard J456 docking system for use with likewise fitted modules, ships, stations and drive sections. All M3 modules have a standard 40LU body length and 10LU body width excluding special equipment appendages.

 

Standard M3 control I/O supports the following inter-module communications protocols: Joshua (default), L78, SAM9, and XOP. Optional additional protocols such as OMCP, IMCL, and 3Mutt are also available.

Above is a typical non-bulk dry cargo module. Cargo module configurations include:

acid   > is available in bulk and non-bulk configurations
base   > can be fitted with climate control
dry   > can be atmospherically pressurized
fragile   > can be fitted with illumination units
liquid   > can be fitted with gravity generators
ordnance

N3 node shown without walls. Units are available from 0 to 5 walls in any arrangement. For easy adaptation, walls may be added/removed from the inside by qualified personnel.

N3 nodes are used to add multilevel support to stations and outposts. Using the J456 docking standard, each node supports up to six nodes horizontally and vertically; or a maximum of four M3 modules in the horizontal plane, and two nodes in the vertical.
 

Nodes may be fitted with illumination and gravitational generators and temperature control, but do not regenerate atmosphere.

 

All N3 nodes:

> have multiple re-entry durability
> can be interconnected in forming outposts and/or stations where necessary
> contain intermodule communications lines
> contain conduits for optional intermodule substance transferral
> contain conduits for optional intermodule power distribution
> are available in double width configuration subdesignated as N3/DW modules
 

Above a D7 command ship approaches Outpost 41.

M3 modules also make excellent stations and outposts. When combined with N3 nodes multilevel arrays can be built which can add integrity to the overall structure.
