Shaft Miners start their shift here to get geared up and await the bridge crew to find a lava planet to begin their work. It contains a few equipment lockers, some crates, hardsuits, and a space pod.

Other than waiting for a lava planet, asteroids usually appear right outside after an FTL to busy the miners, provided the ship hasn't already left the system to do other stuff. The space pod can help expedite the mining process if the bridge staff is really wanting to jump but the ship is also without materials.

This neat (immobile) shuttle is (supposed to be) used to bring the miners to and from whatever planet the ship comes across. The idea behind this is that the ship itself doesn't have to land and put engine operations at risk, and instead sends this down by itself. The ship may freely jump to other sectors and the miners need not worry; this shuttle comes equipped with what could be described as an "FTL Tether" by exploiting some bluespace nonsense to warp the shuttle to wherever the ship is, albeit a little violently.
