Ship is a dog-like Galvanic Mechamorph owned by Julie Yamamoto. He is a Galvanic Mechamorph that was born on Earth.

Being a young Galvanic Mechamorph, he resembles Upgrade, although he is smaller and has a dog-like body. He has no visible mouth but has a tongue.

In Omniverse, Ship's 'paws' are pointy instead of curved, and his patterns are re-aligned.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

File:Merge with ship.jpg
Ship possesses most of the abilities other Galvanic Mechamorphs possess, merging with technology, but lacks the laser. However, Ship does not actually upgrade whatever he merges with, only up to the point where he can use it as a body. Ship also has the ability to transform himself into fully operational technology he's once touched. This includes Earth tech, but more especially an alien spaceship created by the Forever Knights.

Ship also has the ability to "merge" with Julie and transform into a heavily armed suit of armor, which she can wield (first demonstrated in Vreedle, Vreedle). Ship also has technopathy as all Galvanic Mechamorphs possess.

In The Ultimate Enemy: Part 1, Ship was able to sense Diagon's mind controlling wave before it hit despite it not being technology. He then put Julie in the battle suit which protected her from the wave that enveloped every other human in the tennis stadium she was performing in.


Alien ForceEdit

Ship first appears in Pier Pressure as a spawn to find help for Baz-El. When his ship crashes in the forest, Baz-El was unable to leave and needed to go get help so he severed his right arm which became Ship. He instinctively senses an energy signal from the Omnitrix and encounters Ben and battles him in an amusement park on a pier, using several large rides in order to overwhelm him before kidnapping Julie and leads him to the crash site where his 'father' is. Unable to communicate using English, he uses literal body language to warn Ben of the real problem, Julie is the first to understand. After Ben saves the Baz-El and he explains why Ship followed Ben, Ben's Omnitrix can act as a Plumber's Badge so Ship sent a distress signal which made the Omnitrix beep while Ben was at the pier. Afterwards, he entrusts Ship in their care as he takes off. Ship follows them before leaving to chase a truck.


Ship reappears in Pet Project, having developed an attachment to Julie. It is discovered that he is also a target of the Forever Knights as its alien biology has sparked the interest of Dr. Joseph Chadwick, a scientist working for the organization. After a failed attempt to escape from them, Chadwick implants a control chip on his body, transforming his green lines red and placing him under his control. Julie, Ben, Gwen and Kevin attempt to rescue him from the stronghold, but the chip implanted on Ship has transformed him into a powerful weapon battery. As Ship corners the four, Julie steps forward and attempts to reason with him. Their friendship is enough to disrupt the chip and break free of Chadwick's control. Happily jumping into Julie's arms, Ship turns on the Forever Knights and prepares to shoot them down with the very deadly form he was given. As the stronghold collapses, Ship transforms into a new form of the original ship: a spaceship that gets Ben, Julie, Kevin and Gwen out of the stronghold. Because Julie has a better attachment to Ship, she claims ownership of Ship, much to the chagrin of Ben, who previously mentioned that he didn't want to be involved with Ship.

Ship plays a big role in War of the Worlds, in which he takes on the form of the weapon formerly seen in Pet Project to help defend Earth and also transport Ben, Gwen and Kevin in the subsequent infiltration of the Highbreed home world. Julie allows Ben, Gwen and Kevin the use of Ship for trips into outer space.

Ship appeared in Simple where the group used him to travel to an alien planet that was currently in a brutal civil war to try and end it, and later again when the group fled the planet.


In Vreedle, Vreedle, Ship is attacked by the Vreedle Brothers while playing with Julie. They are saved by Ben, who defeats the brothers only to discover they have Court Order to "repossess" Ship. Kevin reveals the order is legit and tells Ben that   they need to go to the High Court on Coda Coda to convince a Judge to revoke the order. Ship, Julie, and Gwen stay on Earth while Ben and Kevin travel to planet Coda Coda. Ship accompanies Gwen and Julie while they have some "girl-talk" at Mr. Smoothy's. When the Vreedle Brothers return to take Ship, Gwen fights the brothers, but they manage to subdue her. In order to protect itself and Julie, Ship merges with Julie, covering her in powerful battlesuit. With Ship as her Battle-Armor, Julie proves to be more than a match for the Vreedle's until Octagon uses a device that immobilizes Ship (still merged with Julie). Ben and Kevin arrive with Ship's creator/original owner Baz-El to call off the repossession. Baz-El tells the brothers to stop only to be shot by them. Ben and Kevin manage to free Ship and Julie (along with Gwen) and defeat the Vreedles. Baz-El regenerates a few minutes later, and seeing how happy Ship is with Julie, he allows Julie to keep him as her pet.

In If All Else Fails, Ship flew Ben and Reinrassic III to Earth to try and stop the Highbreed Failsafe weapon.

In Ghost Town, Ship flew the team to Vilgaxia to try and stop Zs'Skayr. Ship apparently spent most of the episode disguised as a toaster to hide from the Ectonurites.

In The Final Battle: Part 1, Ship flew Kevin and Gwen to save Ben from Kraab and escape his spaceship before it crashed into an asteroid.

Ultimate AlienEdit

Ship had been Julie's vehicle while saving Gwen in Absolute Power: Part 2. They travel to Los Soledad. The battle suit mode had also made a return appearance.


In Eye of the Beholder, Ship left to save Baz-El. In the end, he clearly says Julie's name for the first time, choosing to go with Julie instead of Baz-El, who would sell him.

File:Ship 002.png

In The Perfect Girlfriend, it is shown that Ship can sense there is something different about Julie, causing him to growl and hiss at her. It turns out that the Julie that Ship saw is actually made of nanochips, while the real Julie is away at a tennis match. It is unknown whether this means Ship has a way to sense present nanochips.

In Night of the Living Nightmare, in the dream, Ship and Julie attacked Ben.

In The Ultimate Enemy: Part 1, during Julie's tennis tournament, when Diagon turns the entire world into Esoterica, Ship senses something weird, then merges with Julie to form a Battle-Suit then blast off. Therefore, Julie didn't become an Esoterica.
