While she's "at rest", as Miss Martian says, she resembles a giant red and black egg. When she "wakes it", she becomes a large aerodynamic ship. This shape-shifting also allows her to morph into other forms, including that of an SUV and a Recreational Vehicle.
Powers and abilities
The Bio-Ship is capable of going into space, withstand the friction of a rapid descent, and endure the shockwave of a nuclear explosion. It can also function as a submarine. Bio-Ship takes approximately 26 days and 12 hours to make the trip from Earth to Mars.
She can turn near-invisible in camouflage mode. As stated above she has shape-shifting ability, allowing her to adapt to the user's needs, such as move from her at-rest form to flight mode, to create or remove seats as required, to open hatches in her outer hull, and to generate a clamp capable of holding a large aircraft. She can also adopt the form of other vehicles, such as flawlessly recreating a limousine both externally and internally. She is also theoretically capable of assimilating alien technology.
Though initially unarmed like most Bio-Ships, over her time on Earth the Bio-Ship has developed offensive capabilities, such as a ray gun in the gap between the nose and laser cannons on her sides. She is also able to generate weapons inside her hull to deal with internal threats. She can also incorporate mechanical weaponry, but her innate weapon systems need to be off-line during the process. She is also equipped with a Darkwear interface.
She is not invulnerable to damage, and afterwards it may need a short period of recovery. She can psychically shield her passengers, but this can be overwhelmed.
During the Team's disastrous telepathic training exercise they flew to Superman's Fortress of Solitude to take out an alien ship. Miss Martian upgraded the weapons systems with alien technology, but the ship was lost during the destruction of Washington, D.C..
Miss Martian and Superboy had used the ship to travel to Qurac to visit the Logans. The planned to use it for a trip to Dhabar later; in the meantime, it hovered, cloaked, over the sanctuary grounds.
Qurac December 1, 10:31UTC+2
M'gann and Conner left the sanctuary in the Bio-Ship.
The Bio-Ship continued on towards the Moon. Miss Martian was concerned they wouldn't make it in time.
The Moon December 1, post-19:36UST
The Bio-Ship picked up the missing heroes' signals on a ship moving away from the Moon. They pursued the ship, though M'gann noted the alien vessel had a head start and the Bio-Ship could not follow if it went to light speed.
Before M'gann and La'gaan could share a kiss, the Bio-Ship alerted an object at close proximity of their ship.
Kylstar's Vessel December 1, 23:17UTC
The Bio-Ship moored underneath Kylstar's Vessel. As there was no airlock, Lagoon Boy remained at the helm.
Kylstar's Vessel December 1, 23:58UTC
Having decided to release his prisoners, Kylstar had all those who wished to leave teleported home, including Lagoon Boy and the Bio-Ship.
The Collector's Ship December 1, 19:01EST
Those taken from Earth were teleported inside the Collector of Worlds's ship, where other members of the League and the Team were battling the vessel's commander. After Nightwing ordered them to join the fight, La'gaan destroyed the Collector with the Bio-Ship's weapons.
Metropolis December 1, 19:03EST
La'gaan landed the Bio-Ship and exited, as dozens more coludroids appeared. However, the Collector having detected that someone on the surface was about to shut down his probe, and surprised by the survival of a Kryptonian, agrees not to preserve Metropolis.
The Team and the League used the Bio-Ship to travel to Malina Island, with Nightwing at the helm. They dropped off Aquaman and Lagoon Boy first, and then Batman and his protégé's disembarked. Martian Manhunter and Miss Martian, who had been on the island undercover, escaped the Krolotean base and picked up the others. As a powerful bomb had been planted and primed on the island, they had to retreat quickly. The Bio-Ship couldn't outrun the blast, but could withstand its outer edges, though barely.
Miss Martian summoned the Bio-Ship to save a falling plane that was heading off a ravine. The plane, with Batgirl and several kidnapped children aboard, had its wings clipped off, and was too heavy for Wonder Girl and Miss Martian. The Bio-Ship produced a large clamp from its hull, and carried the fuselage to safety.
Miss Martian and Superboy used the Bio-Ship to patrol the skies to protect the launch of Ferris Aircraft's Earth-Mars communication satellite. After Lagoon Boy found their enemy under water, Miss Martian left and Superboy used the Bio-Ship to destroy several missiles Kaldur'ahm fired at the rocket.
With the Bio-Ship in camouflage mode, Nightwing, Miss Martian and Wonder Girl followed the Manta-Flyer carrying Alpha squad from Star City docks to a Reach vessel in the Pacific Ocean. Miss Martian left to infiltrate the ship.
After Superboy secured the Reach ship's docking bay, the Bio-Ship docked with the alien vessel. Numerous captives on the Reach ship were evacuated to the Bio-Ship, but Black Beetle sealed the docking bay doors, trapping Nightwing in the Bio-Ship and keeping the rest of the Team out. Blue Beetle later arrived to open the doors, and everyone but him was able to get aboard before the Reach ship's hull was breached. Both the docking bay and the Bio-Ship began to flood, forcing Nightwing to seal the Bio-Ship's hatch. The Bio-Ship undocked and, dodging the Reach ship's weapons fire, deployed Lagoon Boy to rescue Blue Beetle, who had been blown into the ocean during his battle with Black Beetle. The Bio-Ship picked the pair up and sped away from the scene.
Camouflaged, the Bio-Ship deposited most of the Team aboard the Warworld. Afterwards, Batgirl and Robin used the Bio-Ship to provide cover fire for the League members attacking the Warworld's surface.
The Warworld May 26 post-12:35, UTCTime Zone
As Mongul launched a saturation missile attack on Earth, the Bio-Ship and the Leaguers attempted to destroy as many missiles as possible. Batgirl reported to the Watchtower that the Bio-Ship estimated their efforts would take out 64% of the missiles.
The Warworld May 26, post-12:40UTC
After the Team members infiltrating the Warworld succeeded in shutting it down, the Bio-Ship docked at the entry point, and the Team reunited.
Nightwing and Miss Martian used the Bio-Ship to search for the Team. The Warworld's size meant they could not effectively scan the entire ship from outside, so they decided to return to the docking bay.
There, they were reunited with Sphere and went on to successfully locate the already liberated Team, at which point they all retreated to the Bio-Ship.
Bio-Ship carried Miss Martian, Superboy, Aqualad, Nightwing, Artemis and Blue Beetle to the site of a belatedly detected MFD. They landed and disembarked to watch as Flash, Kid Flash and Impulse successfully shut it down, but were dismayed to find their victory was at the cost of Kid Flash's life.
Alongside Wolf and Sphere, Bio-Ship moved with M'gann and Conner into their home in Happy Harbor. In order not to draw attention, Bio-Ship usually takes on the form of an SUV parked outside their home.
Later, Miss Martian, Nightwing, Tigress, Superboy and Black Lightning took the Bio-Ship in pursuit. After rescuing the wayward group, everyone returned to Happy Harbor on Bio-Ship. Forager and Bio-Ship had quickly forged a close relationship.
Nightwing's team took the Bio-Ship from Happy Harbor to Greater Bialya to shut down meta-human trafficking site and rescue Tara Markov, with Forager taking piloting duties from Superboy. Nightwing briefed his team en route.
Members of the team infiltrated the auction and bought Tara. They used the Bio-Ship in the form of a limousine as transport. Once Tara was out, they went back in to rescue everyone else. Forager provided back-up on the camouflaged Bio-Ship, shooting the generators to create a distraction, and later shooting Mammoth's knees as part of the West Maneuver. Everyone escaped on the Bio-Ship.
The Team took the Bio-Ship to scout a suspected meta-trafficking site in Russia. Forager provided back-up for the infiltration squad on the camouflaged Bio-Ship. He kept the Bio-Ship out of the fighting when the Team first engaged Task Force X, but de-camouflaged and fired on the enemy to provide the squad with cover after the Task Force regrouped and attacked again.
As Beast Boy gave everyone a tour of the Premiere Building, Bio-Ship sat camouflaged on its helipad. The residents of the Bio-RV would now be moving into the building, to the pleasure of all concerned, except Forager, who went outside to hug Bio-Ship goodbye.
Bio-Ship went to the Bio-Cavern and set down in her rest form. She flashed to signal her desire to procreate to the rest fo her tribe, and they all melted into a reproductive pool. Bio-Ship emerged and budded off Baby, and the two flew off together.
Outside the M'orzz house, M'gann introduced her family and friends to Baby. Since the group needed to travel to multiple destinations, they took both ships, with M'gann, her mother, her sister and S'yraa S'mitt taking Bio-Ship to the Crystal Cave. En route, Bio-Ship informed M'gann of her intention to retire and stay on Mars. M'gann reminisced on how she first bonded with Bio-Ship.
Later, outside the M'orzz home, Gar welcomed Baby, and told Bio-Ship he would miss her.
When Saturn Girl and Chameleon Boy met with Superman to ask his help, Bio-Ship de-camouflaged after he asked how they got back to Earth from Mars. Superman admitted Bio-Ship made a great character reference.
Bart assembled a time travel device on the Bio-Ship for Saturn Girl and Chameleon Boy, but refused to complete the job until they told him exactly what they were up to. Reluctantly, the duo explained the story of what brought them to the 21st century. Satisfied, Bart completed his work, and invited them onto the Bio-Ship to see the completed Cosmic Treadmill.
As Kid Flash powered their flight through subspace to New Genesis on the Cosmic Treadmill, Saturn Girl and Chameleon Boy discussed the plan for finding and destroying the Phantom Zone Projector, or rather their lack of one.
The Bio-Ship arrived at New Genesis to find the Projector already in use. The Bio-Ship opened fire on the Projector, destroying it before anyone could come through. Lor-Zod saw the Bio-Ship and tore his way aboard, shortly joined by Ma'alefa'ak. Zod took Saturn Girl hostage and threatened to kill her if they did not get out of there.
Kid Flash tried to use inhibitor collars but Lor was able to track him even at super speed and destroyed them with his heat vision. Chameleon Boy was overpowered by Ma'alefa'ak. The Bio-Ship generated a pair of internal weapons, but with her crew held hostage she was forced to fly away from Boiling Lake.
Lor held Kid Flash and the Legionnaires captive with inhibitor collars on the Bio-Ship, while Ma'alefa'ak gathered intel in Supertown. Ma'alefa'ak returned having learned the Kaizer-Thrall had been taken to Oa. Bio-Ship immediately shut down her controls, but Lor renewed his threat against her crew and she restored them. Lor had Bart take his place on the Cosmic Treadmill, and the Bio-Ship left for Oa.
After flying to Oa, the Bio-Ship was piloted to Earth in pursuit of the Kaizer-Thrall. Ma'alefa'ak impersonated the captives to get information from Phantom Girl and learned of an attempt to rescue Superboy from the Phantom Zone on Trombus.
The Bio-Ship arrived, and the group quickly detected boom tube activity at the Fortress of Solitude. Superman worried that the Fortress's sensors would detect their approach, but the Bio-Ship interfaced with the Kryptonian systems hide their presence. Ursa Zod, now empowered by the Eye of Ekron, detected them and blasted them out of the sky as they approached. The Bio-Ship crashed to the ground with her whole forward section blown open. Miss Martian and Saturn Girl created a psychic illusion to make it appear that the damage was worse than it was and that all the crew bar Superman were dead.
After Dru-Zod's group left the scene, Nightwing approached the wreck from the Fortress of Solitude. M'gann dropped the illusion. As the heroes recovered, Bio-Ship reverted to her rest form to heal, spitting out the damaged Cosmic Treadmill. Baby arrived soon after, having heard her mother's psychic scream of pain.
A healed Bio-Ship attended M'gann and Conner's wedding, where she took the form of a black limousine and drove Conner and Clark Kent in. Once the ceremony began, she reverted to her normal flight form and watched alongside Baby.
