This is the area at the far end of the Aft Primary Hallway where the Escape Shuttle docks. It is usually filled with hull breaches, plasma, fire, rogue borgs, lube, xenos, blockades, shocked doors and/or the singularity in the final minutes before the shuttle arrives. This area has one of the highest death rates in the game, so watch yourself. The external airlocks are all-access, so be careful not to space yourself accidentally. Chances are the doors will be welded shut and/or the doors will be hacked and bolted shut, forcing your resident engineer to create a fresh hole in the hull to get to the shuttle. You may get acquainted with this area before you have a chance to use it properly as the clown throws you out the external airlock.
