The travel pod's most striking feature was its large bow view port which took up approximately one-quarter of the craft. It stretched from the deck, curving over to meet the roof and around to the side bulkheads. This afforded passengers an unimpeded view out. An airlock and rectangular hatch at the rear provided access to the spacious viewing cabin. Propulsion was provided by two sub-light engine nacelles which doubled as landing pontoons. Unlike the Federation travel pod, the Romulan version didn't have a docking ring which meant it had to enter a shuttle bay to allow passengers to disembark.
Around the turn of the 2270s decade, Gaius, Praetor of the Romulan Star Empire, was transported from Romulus to an orbiting shipyard in a travel pod to view a huge new Bird-of-prey, the ChR Keras, named in honour of his father. (TOS comic: "Schism, Issue 2")
