Claw-shaped shuttles were among the atmospheric shuttles carried aboard the Nostalgia for Infinity during its exodus from Resurgam to Ararat (carrying the Demarchist refugees from the former).

Aside from their original role, they were also used in and around First Camp and other settled parts of Ararat, often as auxilliary aircraft for governmental or search & rescue operations.

Notes Edit

  • Based on the description of their external hulls, they seem to be a Demarchist design. They share the design features of their prow/front - a claw-like shape - with some larger Demarchist military vessels that patrol the vicinity of Yellowstone and in the Epsilon Eridani system. It is entirely conjectural whether this points to a "Demarchist design esthetic" for some ships, regardless of their size, or whether it might be a design feature shared by ship types built by a certain manufacturer.
