Not everything is reverse-engineered alien technology or some kind of evil super weapon.
In 2011, Boeing announced plans for a scaled-up variant of the X-37B, referring to it as the X-37C. The X-37C spacecraft would be between 165% and 180% of the size of the X-37B, allowing it to transport up to six astronauts inside a pressurized compartment housed in the cargo bay.
Its proposed launch vehicle is the Atlas V Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle.
The X-37C could compete with Boeing's CST-100 commercial space capsule.[
