A cargo bay aboard a Galaxy-class.

A cargo bay or cargo hold is a general purpose storage facility aboard shuttles, starships and starbases. Cargo bays are often equipped with large transporters to assist in the moving of cargo containers. When a cargo bay did not have a transporter, cargo is directed into the bay by a transporter chief operating in a transporter room.

Cargo bays can be used in a variety of ways other than typical storage, including triage centers, brigs, and stasis unit facilities.
