Wouldn't a better name be "Antlion Drone?" Drone is commonly applied to insect species, such as bees or ants, which the Antlions share many characteristics with. "Soldier" is usually used for intelligent infantry. Just my two cents. --FiremanV2 21:03, July 30, 2010 (UTC)

I mean, as long as the name is conjectural, we might as well pick one that makes sense in context. Even if that context is giant bugs. --FiremanV2 21:14, July 30, 2010 (UTC)
I personally chose that name so I'll defend it. Since "Worker" reminds of ants and that they work with protecting grubs within a nest, with some king / queen above, I just thought one of the main missing ant "class" was the soldier, which is IMHO very convenient for that "class" of Antlion.

I can see your logic behind that, and you did choose a good name, but it still seems kinda funny to me. --FiremanV2 15:08, July 31, 2010 (UTC)
Of course, we also have to choose the most applicable name if me have to make one up. So this one will do. --FiremanV2 15:38, July 31, 2010 (UTC)
