"The tugboat, for its size, is the most powerful craft afloat. And the Star Tugs are the power behind the docks and waterways that make up the Bigg City Port."

Captain Star
  • Affiliation: Star Fleet
  • Type: Human

Captain Star is the most prominent character in the whole series, due to the fact that he narrates it, doing so in past tense, and in a way that makes it clear that he is no longer at the helm of the fleet, and since the 1920s has retired.

It is unknown whether he is looking back from the actual time the programme was released, in the late 80s, or before, neither is it known who he is recounting his memories to. He narrates all thirteen episodes.

He is quite obviously a veteran sailor, and owns and cares for the Star Fleet. He always appears as a loudhailer in the window of The Star Dock building. He takes great pride in his fleet, but he knows that it is important to be hard on them in order to succeed. He is usually very strict if something does not go as shipshape as it is supposed to.

He has seven tugs and one unnumbered submarine (from Regatta onwards), within his fleet. They are as follows: Ten Cents (1) , Big Mac (2) , O.J. (3) , Top Hat (4) , Warrior (5) , Hercules (6) , Sunshine (7) and Grampus (submarine).

It is unknown if Captain Star is actually a human or just a megaphone sticking out of a building, for he is never seen in person. Like other characters such as Captain Zero, the Quarry Master, the Garbage Corporation, and The Fuel Depot, Captain Star was never even said to be a human and was never seen as one. It is however unknown that in the planned future series he and the other characters would be seen in person.
