Cambot, gimme rocket number nine!
Give me rocket 11 minus two!
  — Joel and Mike


Rocket Number 9 is the all-purpose external rocket-camera that orbits or is deployed around the Satellite of Love. The camera's main purpose is to provide exterior shots of the SOL in order to view approaching alien craft or view anomalies taking place outside the ship. Despite what the name suggests, there is only one such rocket orbiting the SOL, though it does show any place on the outside of the ship on demand, without describing what to look at. The rocket itself is never seen in external shots or from inside the satellite.

Joel named the rocket in reference to Sun Ra's Rocket Number Nine.
