It is revealed in Episode 3 that CT-1 has a form of nano-technology. This is technology that is able to build devices or complete repairs on a nano-scale (between 1-100 nanometres). Presumably other Transport Ships have this type of technology.

Wikipedia has a more detailed and comprehensive article on Nano-technology
