    They dealt with the damaged shuttle in "faith'.
    They repaired the window, repaired it enough to land it on the planet, however it was too busted up to leave orbit. I do not recall if they ever directly addressed the Senators body, however I think we are left to assume they are disposed up just the same as any other casualty, out an airlock?

    Nope. It's just been awhile since I saw Faith. I do recall Young talking about the damaged shuttle but I don't think they ever specified if it was the same one the senator was in or not. At the time, I wasn't counting shuttles.

    If that was the senator's shuttle, it was venting atmosphere; being as such, I would assume that Destiny's passage through the sun in Light would have burnt up everything inside.

    The shuttle still had Destiny's shield protecting it.

Also having an extra spot means that in combat, if someone gets in a lucky shot and damages your docking pad you still have a place to land.
    I don't think it was only a guest spot for who ever wanna visit, i think there is more to it....
