The DGP interpretation is that a low berth is in two parts, the base and the pod. Ships install bases, while pods have enough battery to be transferred from ship to ship. This version is supported by a K'kree fiction piece in JTAS (where a ship gets a consignment lone K'kree in a transferable pod) and in Marc's novel, in which we see long run low berth transfers.

It would just make sense that colonization would work this way, if not sending along the egg bank.
