The Crawler was a typical, four engine air vessel of the Global Defense Initiative. When Gideon captured and sent the GST Methuselah against the city of Chicago, Captain Pierce, against the orders of Secretary Evelyn Rios, ordered the evacuation of both Kennedy and Methuselah, before triggering the self-destruct system of the Crawler and hurling it against the stratospheric transport. The combined strength of both the explosion and the impact were enough to knock the Methuselah off its course and have it crash in a safer location.
