The Work Bee is a small, microfusion-powered utility craft that has been in continuous service with Starfleet
since 2268. The basic pressure shell design has changed very little, though the interior systems have been
periodically updated. The craft is capable of stand-alone operations dealing with inspection of spaceborne
hardware, repairs, assembly, and other activities requiring remote manipulators. The Work Bee carries a single
crew member, usually garbed in at least an emergency pressure suit to protect against accidental depressurization.
In certain applications, a full SEWG (Starfleet standard Extravechicular Work Garment)
is wore to allow the operator to be able to exit the craft, perform any work not possible with the manipulator
system, and return for repressurization.
