The S.S. Drake, simply referred to by the Koppaites as the Drake, is a ship designed by and named after Alph's grandfather. Used by Alph, Brittany, and Charlie, the S.S. Drake serves as their base, transports them between places, and stores all the gathered objects found by them. Charlie is its captain and Alph is its engineer. Uniquely, the S.S. Drake is not designed like a traditional rocket, instead more closely resembling a lander vehicle, particularly with its much rounder and stouter body providing a living space and the four extending landing struts it rests on while on the ground. One of the most valuable components of the S.S. Drake is its cosmic-drive key, which is necessary for the spacecraft to achieve warp speed and travel between distant celestial bodies.

The S.S. Drake has a minor appearance in the opening cutscene of Pikmin: Wide World, and is never seen after that. It is used by Alph, Brittany, and Captain Charlie to return Captain Olimar and Louie to Hocotate before they themselves return to Koppai to resolve the famine plaguing their planet.
