The Laser Drill is a drill ship built by the Tivan Group and then stolen by Yondu Udonta to break into the Bank of A'askavariia. It was used by Yondu Udonta, Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon to drill a hole on Ego's core.
Yondu crashed the ship into Ego's palace, saving Peter Quill from being drained by Ego by crushing his human form. The Guardians boarded the ship, with Quill and Rocket fixing the damaged thrusters. The team quickly exited the palace and began using the vehicle to burrow into Ego's core. As they entered the central cavern, Rocket used the lasers to drill straight into the core, only to be forced to turn away when the Sovereign fleet attacked the ship. With the ship under heavy fire, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer and Mantis fell out of a hole that was torn out on the ship's descent. Furthermore, with the Laser Drill's generator knocked out of commission, making it impossible to fire back, Quill, Rocket and Groot debark via Aero-Rigs to plant an improvised bomb with Anulax Batteries on the core while Nebula joined Yondu in the cockpit.
The Sovereign soon surround the Laser Drill after taking out its rear thrusters, forcing Quill to take cover back inside the ship. As Ayesha began monologuing, Yondu rearranged the laser drills on the starboard side while Nebula plugged her cybernetics into the battery to power them, resulting in the entire Sovereign fleet being destroyed. The Laser Drill then was destroyed after flaming debris struck the fuel line, forcing Nebula, Quill and Yondu to bail out.
