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 borrowed or purchased large numbers of fighters from the Klingons for local defense and produced this design as their fleet carrier. The cheaper Yaguarundi-class light carrier was more numerous but less useful. The Siberian Tiger carrier was a modified Tiger-class heavy cruiser, which operated 12 fighters, one multi-role shuttle, and three admin shuttles. The Siberian Tiger carrier was not considered a particularly successful conversion, but more because of the way it was used than any flaw in the design. The incident in when the Red Claw Glory’s entire fighter group was destroyed by a nervous admiral activating the expanding sphere generators in response to a wave of approaching Kzinti drones is certainly a case in point.
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.
