As I understand it, {HIj} is for transporting cargo and {lup} appears to be for transporting passengers.

Thus, I think you either want: {nuq HIj Dujvetlh} for "What does that ship transport?" or {'Iv lup Dujvetlh} for "Who does that ship transport?"

Agreed. We may not know this distinction with absolute certainty, so hahless62003's suggestion would avoid the problem.

Good point. I've created the two sentences you suggested and "removed" this one.
