"Good morning, and welcome to yet another day of space adventure!"
Hat Kid's Spaceship, otherwise known as Spaceship (Mk. 14 Custom), is a custom spaceship made by Hat Kid, and serves as the main hub of A Hat In Time. The ship uses Time Pieces as fuel, and requires them to power the doors, and to move the spaceship. The spaceship is halfway to Hat Kid's home when a Mafia Goon tries to collect a toll from her after thinking it is a "Flying boat". Hat Kid refuses to pay, and the Mafia member trashes the place, spilling Hat Kid's time pieces out into space.
Some of the characters Hat Kid meets on her adventures will visit the ship. Hat Kid can bring back relics as souvenirs from her travels.
The ship has Space resistant wood, reinforcements, a full range satellite, comet proof glass that has a weakness of fists. The ship also has 4 boosters at the back of the ship.
When Hat Kid loses her collection of Time Pieces at the beginning of the game, the ship goes offline and the doors to the rooms on her spaceship are shut. The rooms can only be entered when a certain number of Time Pieces have been retrieved. Each room allows entry to a different chapter by a telescope.Later Hat Kid has the Ice Hat, she will be able to enter the mail room from the slide. Inside is a Time Rift.
