The CK-01 Henterprise in its full appearance.
Final boss in Cluck of the Dark Side.
It's a large battleship made out of metal, and it's also the biggest boss to date, though it's only 1.5 times as big as The Egg Cannon. It consists of the flat saucer-shaped hull, measuring ~50,000 kilometers in diameter, and of the two engines attached to its back, with huge metallic chicken legs protruding below them. A yolk is placed on top of the hull, as it's likely its power source.
The Christmas edition has it receive a huge make over. The metal it is made out of is now brighter. The lights on the hull now display a message - ⋆ Merry Xmas! ⋆. The yolk is now green, and the main satellite dish and the laser cannons are coated with gold. The hull is now also decorated with mistletoes, and the yolk has a green bow attached to it. The Halloween edition, meanwhile, doesn't change it as much. It only attaches cobwebs to the main satellite dish and the parts near it.
The Henterprise's entrance attack. It fires a huge laser from its main satellite dish. The sides of the beam are safe.
The Henterprise's second attack in the first encounter, and the last one in the final phase. Eight purple lasers are fired out of the mini laser cannons, either straight down (in Chapter 1) or in different directions (final phase).
The Henterprise's attack following up the Red Beam in most phases, and Purple Lasers in the first Chapter. It shoots 20 Feathers at you.

Every 25% of its health depleted, a blue mini-explosion will appear, and the Henterprise will drop two Gifts and two Atomic Powerups. Once 50% of its health is depleted, it will retreat and arrive from the right side of the screen. It will use Red Beam again, after which it will come back to its regular pattern.
Let There be Light
The Henterprise is encountered for the last time at the end of the Let There be Light chapter, the final one in the game. It has 1000000 health, matching the Egg Cannon. It arrives from the top of the screen, starting Phase 1. Phase 1 starts with Red Beam. After that, its regular pattern will kick in. It starts with Black Feathers. After that, it might either use Egg Launch or Sun Fireballs. Its last attack in a pattern is Chicken Wobble.
Once 20% of its health is depleted, it goes into Phase 2. It retreats, arrives from the left side of the screen, and uses Red Beam. After that, it'll start its pattern in this phase. It consists of Black Feathers, then either Sun Fireballs or Blue Ions, and then Chicken Wobble.
Once 40% of its health is depleted, Phase 3 kicks in. It's identical to Phase 1, except the Henterprise arrives from the bottom of the screen.
Once 60% of its health is depleted, Phase 4 kicks in. It's identical to Phase 2, except the Henterprise arrives from the right side of the screen.
Phase 5 is finally reached once 80% of its health is depleted. It arrives from the top of the screen, and uses Red Beam. From now on, it will keep using Purple Lasers until it's defeated.
For every 20% of its health depleted, except for the final 100%, it will drop two Gifts and two Atomic Powerups, and a blue mini-explosion will appear. Once all of its health is depleted, it will give you 1000000 points, and start its destruction animation. Once it explodes, you will receive additional points for lives (50000 for every one remaining) and Missiles (10000 for every one remaining).
The Barbequer is recommended in case you have a hard time avoiding the projectiles. It can even remove Sun Fireballs! In the Black Feathers attack, clear out enoguh feathers to get through it alive. It's better to avoid the Chicks/Metal-suit Chickens from the Chick/Chicken Wobble attack. If you lost a lot of firepower, you can try to kill them to get some Powerups. Once the Egg Launch attack happens, position yourself under the dish. Missiles aren't necessary in its encounters, especially the final encounter, as there, the Missiles will at most chip away 1% of its health. In the final phase, it's recommended to hide as close to the side of the screen and the Henterprise as possible. The Purple Lasers don't get fired here as often.
- The yolk powering the Henterprise is roughly twice as big as the Yolk from Revenge of the Yolk.
- It's heavily based on the Enterprise from Star Trek.
- The Henterprise was once supposed to be a boss in Ultimate Omelette but was cut and repurposed as a final boss in Cluck of the Dark Side.
