Flight has always fascinated humanity. First came legends of {{Winged Humanoid}}s and {{Floating Continent}}s, then eventually [[UsefulNotes/{{Airships}} airships]] and actual airplanes. When the aircraft carrier was invented, its [[RuleOfCool sheer awesome]] (and force projection) made the battleship a military relic[[note]]Although the potential weakness of the carrier vessel itself, should its air arm ever be somehow neutralized, has more than once induced the theorization of a [[Franchise/BattlestarGalactica carrier-battleship hybrid]][[/note]]. Considering this, is it any surprise that people have wanted to combine the awesome of the airplane, aircraft carrier, zeppelin and floating continent into one?

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' fics of Creator/AAPessimal, the [[WrenchWench research witches]] Olga Romanoff and Irena Politek, the nearest thing Ankh-Morpork has to a combat air force in the event of elven incursions or Klatchian invasions, speculate on getting round the Lancre Problem[[note]] As described in ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'', the practical limitation on the amount of magic a single broomstick can carry, this limiting its range[[/note]] by having a ''really large'' flying carpet up there that can act as a flying platform for broomsticks and conventional smaller carpets. The satellite flyers could leave the mother ship on missions then fly back and refuel on fresh magic...

* The ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' spin-off show ''Series/{{Caprica}}'' features these in a virtual manner. In the show there is a "VirtualReality" video game called ''New Cap City'' that is ''Videogame/GrandTheftAuto'' meets ''SinCity'' in a historical sim. One of the more persistent threats in the game world are giant Zepplins that launch everything from early-model Vipers to Gyrocopters, all raining DeathFromAbove. One might even go so far as to call them an Airship Galactica.
