The Lyrans are human-sized cats that bore a distinct similarity to Terran lynxes in both appearance and temperament. Bitter enemies of the Kzintis (tigermen eight feet tall), the Lyrans were staunch allies of the Klingons and enemies of the Hydrans as well. Like Kzintis, Lyrans were carnivores known to eat their captives on rare occasions. The Federation assigned each Lyran ship-type a "reporting name" to keep them separate. Lyrans were organized as a feudal society. Twenty-one counties each had a squadron of ships lead by a heavy cruiser; four dukes had dreadnoughts to lead the four fleets, while the king-emperor commanded from the capital.
The Lyrans hold all of the “firsts” in fast patrol ship design (with the understandable exception of the questionable Fi-Con design). They were the first to build Interceptors, the first to build fast patrol ships (also known as gunboats), and the first to deploy them into combat. This gunboat/PF tender is converted from the Jaguar war cruiser, but the modifications are extensive as you can see here. Stub wings are added to each side to carry enough mech-links for a total of six Bobcat gunboats. This PF/gunboat tender was more successful than the destroyer-sized PF/gunboat tender due to the larger hull and more power.
The ship is available in a variety of materials. Ships are unpainted, use standard flight stands available from many sources, and, while designed for gaming, make fine display pieces.
