The Scarab represents an ominous new development for humanity. While the Industrial Trust's platform is no weapon of war - it is as fragile and easily squashed as the bug from which it takes its name - the Scarab represents a technology previously unknown: a mechanism allowing a massive Nian platform to leave the ground. Although it is unknown what other Nians possess this ability, the Scarab represents an alarming message: "Humanity is not the only force capable of innovation on Nia."
