The Celestia Class Heavy Shuttle Orbiter is the heavier, bulkier variant of the Starling Class Shuttle. It carries thirty-two crew members and holds a large storage bay, excellent for carrying lab equipment, medical supplies, communication devices, small vehicles, autonomous rovers, and much else.

Blueprints were drawn out for this spacecraft when humans began exploring worlds too dangerous for the Starling to safely handle. The first operational model of the Celestia was built just before the year 2200 CE. Like the Starling, it has undergone many revisions to become as powerful, advanced, and reliable as its counterpart.

It is standard of any FTL craft to possess Starling shuttles for most worlds and Celestia orbiters for large, atmospherically dense, or otherwise hazardous worlds. This is why the only people permitted to fly the Celestia are pilots who have undergone rigorous training.
