Our chief medical officer reports that although he will be able to keep us alive for 5 weeks, we will need treatment for respiratory ailments and massive de-tox treatments very soon. This means we need a clinic.
All required equipment is on hand: A surgical table, a dialysis machine, and a bio bronchial-purge tank. But we canít waste any time building a clinic and then building a Sic Bay for the ship later.
I have directed that the clinic be built as a modular Sic Bay, so it can be inserted into the ship later.
Build Sick Bay
About this creation
This is my first attempt at something like this. I hope it's good enough to get us off of this rock. Meet Dr. Joseph A. Whom, the fine doctor that is keeping us all alive.
Just a note: the guns are not guns, it is a light fixture positioned over the operating table.
When not in use, the operating table folds up to give some more room in this cramped space. Make note of the storage containers in the back-left corner. There is a first aid kit and a ventilated cold storage on top, while the bottom has a regular storage area and a smaller container for vaccines and such.
This is a good shot of the operating table. When in use, the screen fills with information about the patient, including the patient's vitals. The red light activates when the patient reaches critical status. The blue light activates in the case of a biohazard. It even has armrests for the patient.
This is the moblie dialysis machine. It hovers centimeters above the ground and lands when in use. It works by removing impurities from the bloodstream by running it through a filter.
The room uses bunk beds to optimize room space. White beds, or top bunks, are reserved for patients that don't need as much attention, while black beds, or bottom bunks, are taken up by severe cases that need constant monitoring.
This is the bio bronchial-purge tank. Dr. Whom monitors the patient via the console next to it. The red light turns on until the patient is healed, in which case the green light turns on. Note the drain in the back for flooding/emptying the tank and the gurney in case someone needs transport.
I think the bunk bead format would be a huge space saver, if they were smaller bunk beads. It's a good concept. That massive overhead light is the bomb. It dominates the whole bay. I also like that screen you used for the purge tank. Well done! Your a life saver (literally).
Great use of space! The overhead lights on the operating table is a nice touch!

Great entry for the challenge Lucas, best of luck. You really made nice use of the limited space alotted with some clever details. A black bed seems a little depressing, but then again it probably hides the blood stains better. "Stuff it!", the ship must launch!
