A cargo bay is a general purpose storage area on a starship or starbase.

Cargo bays often have external hatches so that crago can be deposited directly into the area from another starship and many are also fitted with large transporter platforms for the same purpose.

It is not uncommon for the large space a cargo bay provides to be utilised for other purposes, such as; medical treatment areas in large scale crisis', brigs, stasis unit facilities, hydroponics bays, temporary housing for large scale personal transportation and even on the USS Voyager, as quarters for the former Borg drone Seven of Nine.
