The Wobbling Skies: An Aethership?

The title pretty much says it. There doesn't seem to be any difference between an aethership and the Wobbling Skies in Istan except that it's larger. According to the ambient dialogue, the pirates don't remember how they got it. It also belongs to pirates like aetherships.

An aethership looks like this:

    From what I know they were super drunk raiding and the next day they were back at the flotilla with an airship. Given how little end know about where the remains of scarlet'a forces have gone, it's possible the aetherblades have become involved with the regular pirates in dajkah

    I thought the Aetherblade airship was an intriguing addition and a nice callback to Season 1 lore, showing that they haven't been forgotten about even if the ambient dialogue's vagueness was such a tease. :)

    Although it seems unlikely at this point that we'd be returning to Scarlet era's unresolved plots anytime soon, there was that curious bit of plot in S1 where Scarlet freed Mai Trin (Aetherblade leader) from Lion's Arch and sent her to the Mists in search of something, which helped introduce us to the Edge of the Mists as a location (you can still see her ordering folks around via hologram in the center of Edge of the Mists). I often wondered why Mai was even needed for the mission instead of Scarlet just telling some other Aetherblade lieutenant to take her place. While the Aetherblades participated in the Battle for Lion's Arch, Mai Trin and her ship were suspiciously absent and have remained elusive for the past few years.

    The questions then become: What exactly was their mission in the Mists all about? Did Scarlet have another plan that's yet to come to fruition? Is Mai Trin still loyal to Scarlet or forging her own path?

    It would be fascinating to learn the answer to that and hopefully meet with Mai Trin again if an opportunity ever presents itself for that.
