The Vorlon transport was a class of ship in use by the Vorlon Empire, sometimes to transport diplomats to various locations. The transport has organic qualities, indicating the use of organic technology.

CharacteristicsEdit

Each transport possesses a layer of Vorlon bio-armor in addition to four sail-like folds which can extend outward during flight. In addition to these features vessels of this design are implied to have an intelligence and will of their own.[2]. The ships are described on more than one occasion as "singing" to their occupants.[3][4]

History Edit

Ambassador Kosh's Vorlon transport arrived at Babylon 5 in 2257, and docked in Bay 9. [5] Two years later it was primarily docked in Bay 13. [6] The Ambassador used this transport to travel to and from the Vorlon homeworld. Kosh and the ship also seemed to have a partially symbiotic bond.

In 2260, the vessel docked with Babylon 5 with Lyta Alexander as a passenger.[7] When Kosh died, the transport set course for the nearest Epsilon Eridani sun, where it supposedly met its end. [8]

Replacement Ambassador Ulkesh also made use of a Vorlon transport. [9] The ship appeared to have been destroyed when Kosh and Ulkesh's battle ended, but it eventually rebuilt itself and was used by Sheridan and Ivanova as a safeguard against Shadowtech taking over Ivanova's new Warlock class destroyer, the EAS Titans.[10][11]
