In science fiction, this type of military operation is scaled up to the planetary level, with [[starship]]s inserting troops into battle against ground forces defending a [[planet]].  In most science fiction, attackers use [[shuttle]]s, [[dropship]]s, or even [[starship]]s capable of landing to deploy troops and equipment. ''[[Star Trek]]'' factions usually make use of [[transporter]]s to insert troops during planetary assault operations, unless they are somehow [[Technobabble|blocked]].
