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.
Replacing Tiger heavy cruisers and Bengal Tiger Command Cruisers in production starting in the middle of the General War, the Java Tiger Heavy Command Cruiser had an enlarged center section with additional power systems and a pair of added phasers. Java Tiger is the Federation “reporting name” for this class. Known names and the county they were assigned to include: Bloodsucker (Enemy’s Blood), Nightstalker (Night Star), and Wild Claw (Black Claw).
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.
