The Sakenyako gunships were a group of six attack spacecraft used by the Sakenyako tribe. Under the command of Sakenyako chief Ekwahektay, the gunships had a formidable albeit unseen arsenal, and used rapid ambush tactics in battle.
Although they planned to attack the boys from the Dwarf in Starbug, the attack was called off due to the presence of the mechanoid Butler, who had previously saved the Sakenyako from illness. The Dwarfers were left to go in peace, although the Sakenyako teleported Butler aboard their ships to help heal the chief's dying father Baknaknegath. ("Krysis", Series XI)
