Artwork of the Gunship from Metroid: Zero Mission.

The Gunship (スターシップ) is Samus Aran's spacecraft that appears throughout the Metroid series, first appearing in Metroid II: Return of Samus.


Samus trusty starship is there when she needs to ride around the galaxy. She uses it as a resting place to regain health and ammunition; it also functions as a save point for players to save game data. The front of it also appears to be based on the design of the front of her helmet.
