The cargo hold could carry anything. I just used shipping containers to show scale (using something familiar). The entire cargo hold would be a sort of "pod" that you could fill with whatever you like. Different "pods" could be designed to carry anything. Just trying to come up with a docking system that would be universal to all "pods".

There's a freight elevator for other parts of the ship (non-cargo). Gasbags could be loaded that way if necessary. I was also wondering if you could flood the cargo hold with helium/hydrogen to displace any air in the cargo hold and provide extra lift. Though it would probably kill any live cargo in the cargo hold.

Which is another option... If your cargo needs life support, the cargo hold would have to be designed to provide it. The different designs of cargo holds are endless. I was just trying to figure out how they would all be lifted by the Precariat.
