|Captain||Hesho (formerly), Kauri|
|Featured In||Skyward (series)|
Kitsen Unity Ship Swims Against the Current in a Stream Reflecting the Sun, often referred to as the Swims Upstream, is a Superiority starfighter, used by a crew of kitsen training to fight delvers. It is captained by Hesho until his death, after which Kauri assumes command. The starfighter is 50% larger than the average Superiority starfighter due to the large crew of kitsen it accommodates, and is built like a battleship.
The ship has multiple gun emplacements, a captain's chair, an instruments department, and multiple other departments needed to run a battleship.
