These areas are held in reserve to allow the Galaxy to absorb large numbers of mission specialists or other guest and attached personnel (in various short-term mission configurations, use of the quarters can increase the ship’s compliment to as many as 6,500 individuals). These accommodations are in addition to normal guest and VIP accommodations.
