Cargo Shuttle not showing in Space Centre (Little Upsilon)

Three questions:

1) On Aug 02, 2801 (LU calendar) I finally completed my Space Programme and received my first cargo shuttle (it shows up in my country contracts via the 'recent purchases').

What I don't understand is that it doesn't appear in my country stock, nor in the 'Space Program' section.

However, it DOES appear in the 'space program' section of the portal page (Space program > List Shuttles).

Has anyone else experienced this and is it an error?

2) Can somebody clear up the requirements for launching/relaunching cargo shuttles for me? I have stockpiled sufficient numbers of Spacecraft Maintenance Units in my Space Centre and I assume that I need one on board the shuttle for the return leg of any mission (2 if it's a mission to another planet rather than a space station).

Does the first launch use the Boosters that came with the Shuttle (shuttle corps using 2 boosters per month) or do I need 20 boosters in stock before I can launch? Just wondering if this is why the shuttle doesn't appear in my Space Centre.

Do I also need to send Shuttle Boosters and Solid Missile Fuel with my shuttle if it's going to another planet? I read in the documentation that you need 20 Shuttle Boosters to relaunch a shuttle (as they are not reusable) but all flight between space stations and between space stations and planets is handled by Shuttle Engines. If I am reading this correctly, I'll either need to send spare boosters & Solid Fuel with the shuttle or negotiate with the President at the other end to ensure supply.

3) I'm having trouble shifting Nuclear Submarines into my Space Centre for launching. They're being purchased on contract and automatically added to my fleet. I can't move them to the Space Centre from the fleet, nor can I move them if I deactivate them first. How can I do this?

Question one answered - shuttles take a while to be assembled on-site. The first one seemed to take ages, but has now appeared.

Still puzzled on #3, though.

All I want to do is lift my ship from LU (where it was bought)to FB, but I can't do so without going thru a dock, which I don't have at the monent. Can anything be done to allow travel without trading to bypass the dock requirement?

Pretty sure subs are one of the things you cant move/trade in space.
