It is steel gray with a green laser and a little window with a stick behind it. On bonus version the rocket color is pink with flame near a jet with pink color. One part of the rocket including panic button.
The first owner of the rocket was not Starfishman, but his arch-enemy, Dreaded Patrick. In the game, Dreaded Patrick ties Starfishman to his rocket after Starfishman tries to save a civilian who is also tied to the rocket, and blasts Starfishman into space in an attempt to destroy him. The sea star unties himself and saves the world by rocketing through space rock, making a perfect circle right through it and having the rock fall down to Earth and get in stuck on the Dreaded Patrick.
While in space, Starfishman had to defend a space station from asteroids and destroy the patty U.F.O.
After that, he flies the rocket back to Earth, falling asleep along the way, but manages to press the panic button before crashing into a building.
In the different versions of the game, the rocket looks slightly different.
