Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

The party discovers Queen Karnak.

Cid realized the crystal amplifier is straining the Crystal, and was imprisoned when he attempted to shut the ship down. Bartz and his friends board the ship after the chancellor releases Cid, and try to save the Fire Crystal from the possessed Queen Karnak. The party reaches the engine room where the queen transforms into Liquid Flame. After defeating her, the party enters Karnak Castle through a conduct used to deliver the Fire Crystal's power to the ship, but the crystal shatters regardless of all efforts.

After the party returns from the Library of the Ancients with Mid, they find Cid in Karnak. Along with Mid, his grandson, they remodel the Fire-Powered Ship to sail without needing the power of the Fire Crystal. Inside the ship, while waiting for the pair to finish remodeling it, Galuf recovers from his amnesia, and tells the other Warriors of Light about Exdeath and the Warriors of Dawn. Afterwards, Bartz uses the ship to travel to Crescent, but it gets sucked into the Catapult during an earthquake. The ship remains in the vault under the sea, but can still be visited by the party.
