The Perseus is a ship created by the Kingdom of Science. Constructed over the course of a year, the Kingdom aims to use it to sail to South America in order to identify the origins of the Petrification.

The construction of the Perseus is a major focus of the Age of Exploration Arc.

History

Age of Exploration Arc

The Perseus sails off.

After defeating Tsukasa and the his empire, Senku and the Kingdom of Science set their sights on discovering the cause of the Petrification. Believing that the answer to this mystery lies in South America, they begin to develop a ship capable of crossing the Pacific Ocean.

Treasure Island Arc

Senku develops the schematics for the Perseus. (Several other members of the Kingdom of Science develop alternative concepts, including Yo and Magma.) Ryusui leads the construction of the project, ultimately becoming its captain upon completion. The construction of the ship takes approximately a year to complete. On the year 5741, it is finally complete and sets sail to Treasure Island.

During its time on Treasure Island, it is attacked by Kirisame, resulting in most of them being petrified. It is subsequently ransacked by Ibara and his forces, while left ashore by them.

New America City Arc

Following the defeat of Ibara, the Kingdom of Science regain their ship and fix the damage done by Ibara. They receive a transmission from the Whyman and deduce he's on the moon, with Senku deciding to sail the Perseus across the world to gather materials and travel to space.[1] The crew gain two new members Kirisame and Matsukaze, while Soyuz stays and becomes the leader of Treasure Island. The Perseus leaves the island after making Treasure Island a part of the Kingdom of Science.[2]

They sail back to Ishigami Village where they revive Tsukasa, before they set off for America

After forty days of sailing, the Perseus arrives in San Francisco, where they divide into two groups with the warrior team following the exploration crew and the rest stay with the ship. [3]

After salvaging a plane from a recently revealed American Colony, the crew began to work on making a runway on the ship to battle the enemy. Several days, the crew worked while a spy came aboard.

The crew were distressed when an attempt on Senku's life was made by Stanley Snyder. Fortunately the young scientist manage to survive by creating a bullet proof vest but he was a wounded from an after shock. The crew to send it to him while he was on bed rest well continuing to create the runway more determined than ever to pay the enemy back. Soon the runway was completed and the new plane was able to launch.[4]

With Stanley approaching, the crew had the plane take flight, causing an aerial battle to take place.[5] While the crew were distracted by the battle taking place, they were left unaware of that the American Colony had a submarine laying in wait. The submarine attacked, causing much damage to the ship before they were attacked by the members of Stanley's unit and rounded up.[6]

South America Arc

Stanley and his unit commandeer the Perseus, which the proceed modify it to pursue Senku and save the captured Dr. Xeno. Matsukaze is taken aboard after sustaining injuries during the attack. Determined to find Ginro, Matsukaze ignores his injuries by leaving the sick bay and finds Ginro cowering away behind the prison cage. Matsukaze takes this to mean that Ginro was spying on the enemy, which he brushes off as that being the case. As Matsukaze collapses, Ginro hides once again. Much later, Stanley and his men interrogated Matsukaze but the samurai does not speak. Seeing his friend in danger, Ginro gives away his position and reveals where Senku is heading. With this, Stanley sets a course for South America.[7]
