For transit from their enormous Trade Federation battleships to the surface of their economically or militarily conquered worlds, Neimoidian officials travel in a distinctively shaped Neimoidian escort shuttle. Curved insect-like landing gears lower from the ship's belly, giving the craft's legs a pincer-like appearance as it settles on a landing pad.
Trade Federation officials such as Nute Gunray and Rune Haako used a Neimoidian shuttle to land on Naboo following their successful occupation of the planet. Viceroy Gunray used the same model of shuttle to escape besieged Geonosis at the start of the Clone Wars.
Doctor Nuvo Vindi attempted to escape his laboratory on Naboo aboard a Neimoidian shuttle, in order to spread the deadly Blue Shadow Virus, but he was thwarted by the Jedi and the Gungan shaak wrangler, Peppi Bow.
