The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Good choices - but never could take to Wagner!
I don't have one - will have to think on it.

Any of the following tracks from The Wrath of Khan would do nicely:

10. Surprise Attack - 23:09
11. Kirk's Explosive Reply - 28:17
17. Battle in the Mutara Nebula - 39:36
18. Enterprise Attacks Reliant - 47:46

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan [Complete Motion Picture Sountrack]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOFHi7SRMoU

So, too, would these tracks from The Undiscovered Country:

6. Assassination - 10:13
12. Alien Fight - 23:53
19a. The Battle for Peace - 39:18
19b. The Final Chance for Peace - 42:30
19c. The Final Count - 44:58

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country [Complete Motion Picture Soundtrack]

we'd form an interesting airship armada, I think. does the music reflect a fighting style?

For my selections, these are more the mood of the battle rather than a fighting style:  the maneuvers, the attack, the counter-attack, the strategy, the uncertainty, the losses, the wins... Additionally, the Star Trek selections (especially some of the sections from The Wrath of Khan), seem very evocative of vessels battling each other in a three-dimensional space (where you may not be fully aware of where your adversary is, how closely you might be passing each other, and so forth), such as submersibles confronting one another beneath the waves or dirigibles stalking each other through cloud banks.

Also, you might have music that gives you the mood of the approach to battle, the combat, and the victory, such as the "O Fortuna" movement from Orff's Carmina Burana:

Carmina Burana ~ O Fortuna | Carl Orff ~ André Rieu

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GD3VsesSBsw

So to answer your question, when asked what I think of when I think of musical themes to my air battles, I go for pieces that make me feel the battle.

fair enough. it's logical, and thinking of it, that's what I did too.
but I still think it'd make an interesting fleet.

Is the theme of the ride Villa Volta from the theme park Efteling.

I do recommend a trip to the efteling if you ever visit the Netherlands. The Villa Volta always scares me, though.

Indeed.

Music notwithstanding, I'll be in the Redneck Flotilla... Grin

Okay, got it; I just thought it was unnamed music superimposed over a "real" house. Didn't realize it was a dark ride/haunted attraction.

the Villa Volta focusses on the story of the Goat Riders that are said to have roamed the fields of Limburg. they were satanic and long story short. this guy had his house cursed. and the Villa Volta is his house. you take a seat on the couch, and look around the room. then suddenly things start to move. the whole house is moving around you. you're upside down, then straight back....and it goes on for a good few minutes...

Nice effect; I hadn't heard of that being used for a whole room/house.

Ah, yes, the battle song of the 42nd Royal Highland Air Flotilla ("The Royal Highland Squadron" since 1881), known by their more familiar name, The Black Sky Watch...

Excellent piece; I'd not heard it before.

from the same composer, a different piece you might also like

Epic viking battle music - To Valhalla!


(I just discovered this same composer has one song called 'the revenge of the steampunk pirates' )

But of course, this is the air march of Oskar II's Hans Majestet Egen 2dre Oppland Luft Flotiljen (His Majesty's Own 2nd Oppland Air Flotilla)...

Nice piece; alternately pulse-pounding and subtle.

(I just discovered this same composer has one song called 'the revenge of the steampunk pirates' )

Pirate music - Revenge of the Steampunk Pirates


Ah, you found the title theme from Whizknee's Pirates of the Airibbean:  In Stranger Clouds...
