These specially designed tugs are designed to transport cargo containers. Capable of transferring power to cargo containers via attachment plates, Transport Tugs can manipulate their warp fields to incorporate a long train of cargo containers. Most Transport Tugs can maintain a viable speed when hauling one to two cargo containers, but very quickly loose their speed and manoeuvrability when hauling more than two.
Transport Tugs, like Transports, do have the ability to transport passengers, with military transport tugs having the ability to conduct combat operations and exploration procedures under certain conditions. But their primary mission is moving cargo containers to and from various ports, housing special Work Bee’s and Cargo Shuttles.
