Bulkhead

A bulkhead is an upright wall within a ship:

A bulkhead serves the following purposes:

  • It increases the structural rigidity of the vessel in support of the spaceframe.
  • It creates airtight compartments that can contain air in the case of a secondary hull breach to minimise damage to life support.
  • It can contain explosions to minimise damage to other locations on the same deck, especially by penetrator missiles.
  • It provides shielding to hinder communication by hostile boarders without access to the shipnet.
  • It provides additional radiation shielding in the event of a secondary hull breach ensuring that an entire deck is not compromised.
