Qwark's tour shuttle is a vehicle appearing in Ratchet & Clank and Up Your Arsenal. It is a luxury craft[1] used by Captain Qwark on tours, and was stolen by Ratchet and Clank from Qwark's headquarters on Umbris. Ratchet and Clank used the vessel for their adventure until reaching the Gemlik Base, at which point they used a blarg fighter to catch Chairman Drek.

History

The tour shuttle appeared in the Qwark vid-comic Issue 5: The Shaming of the Q at the end. Qwark was seen flying it while touring the galaxy after coming out of hiding following his battles with Dr. Nefarious.

Ratchet and Clank acquired the tour shuttle on Umbris. After Captain Qwark had sent them to his gauntlet, he lured them into a trap in which they fell into a blargian snagglebeast lair. After "Destroy the Snagglebeast", they were unable to escape the lair, and had to find a new ship. Ratchet at this point vowed revenge on Qwark for his trap, furious at Clank for naively walking into it, while Clank pleaded with Ratchet to help the Commando on Batalia, after an infobot showed the planet in danger. Ratchet attempted to start the ship on his own, but required a robotic ignition system which only Clank could provide. Clank started the ship only on the condition that Ratchet help.

Eventually, Ratchet and Clank fought Captain Qwark in the Gemlik Base, fighting his starfighter. After "Shoot down Captain Qwark", an infobot showing Chairman Drek's forces ravaging planet Oltanis gave Ratchet a change of heart, with him agreeing with Clank that it was time to defeat Drek. The two needed a faster ship, and found the much faster blarg fighter.
