The Gem-Canister is the starting ship in KEST. The only real purpose it serves is to give the player the option to start as either a Gnat or a Fly. It doesn't fire lasers or dash, meaning it has no method of fighting. It is recommended to get the Gnat or Fly as soon as the player joins the game, as this can be done with on-screen buttons. Note: you do not see this when playing ACW with this tree.
