Federation personnel assigned to the Embassy on Duronis II have a number of transport options available to them. Short trips within the area of Lokesh take advantage of Laudean ground transports. Vehicles resembling Hovercrafts have also been used on occasion to cross small bodies of water. For longer voyages, Starfleet craft assigned to the Embassy are available.

Runabouts

There are three Starfleet Runabouts stationed on Duronis II:

Location & Usage

The USS Martin Luther King Jr. is stored in the bunker located under the main Embassy building, able to launch from the bay door located to the south of the Embassy. It is used primarily as a transport option for the Ambassador and senior staff when engagements require travel. It can also, however, be used as an emergency escape vehicle for the Embassy staff, and can evacuate up to forty people in one launch. Any remaining crew can utilize the Hopper, transporters to access the nearby launch facility, or an orbiting vessel.

The other Runabouts and one Hopper are stored at a secure launching facility within Lokesh's small makeshift spaceport. Located approximately thirty kilometers from the main Embassy building but accessible by ground transportation or transporter.

Hoppers

There are two Hoppers assigned to Duronis II:

Hoppers were designed for a variety of different assignments ranging from zero-g troop deployment to mobile ground ops and heavy ordinance deployment. They were created through necessity in late 2347 as a direct response to the Setlik III massacre and the following outbreak of hostilities with the Cardassian Union.

Location & Usage

One of Starfleet's two Hoppers on Duronis II is always stored next to the Runabout Martin Luther King Jr in the Embassy's subterranean hanger bay. The second hopper is stored with the other Runabouts at a secured launching facility approximately thirty kilometers from the main Embassy building.

Both Hoppers are configured as colonial transport vehicles, rated to move people short-range interstellar. The Hopper's were assigned to Duronis II given the planet's unstable post-revolutionary political state. Their purpose is primarily as an emergency escape vehicle for the Embassy staff, and can evacuate up to forty-eight people in one launch. Any remaining crew can utilize the runabout, transporters to access the nearby launch facility, or an orbiting vessel.
