About the concept



We thought it was interesting to explore the concept of parasites, as humans create their own ecosystems you could still consider them parasites, with the Earth being inhospitable they're forced to move to a smaller environment, one where they can live on. Much like parasites they hop between hosts as they see fit, although our unlucky survivors of the apocalypse have yet to find their second home.

The aircraft isn't really the living creature itself. The living creature get's carried by the aircraft which consists of mechanical parts based on insect wings.

So for example, if we remove the mechanical parts, the insect is not able to fly anymore.

Definition of an aircraft: "An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the air." (Wikipedia)

It is, actually. An aircraft can be said to be any sort of flying machine, including one that's unpowered. If we were talking about an airplane, it would be a different matter.

Oh so if it's not perfectly 100% pulled from real life it's not an aircraft? no creativity allowed, got it.

Merriam-Webster defines an aircraft as:

"a vehicle (such as an airplane or balloon) for traveling through the air"

since we've established this thing is part machine and part giant bug it is a machine,

also, merriam-Webster defines a vehicle as:
"a means of carrying or transporting something"
which also applies to our little build because if you actually read the lore, then you'd know that this thing carries people, so by those definitions, yes, it is an aircraft
