The Lyran Democratic Republic (LDR) began as the Dark Star County of the Enemy's Blood Duchy of the Lyran Empire. The ruling family was corrupt, and a revolution slaughtered the family and declared a democracy, but still loyal to Enemy's Blood. The Duke decided to remove the democrats and install his second son as the new count, which would strengthen his rule as he would be able to count on his son's support. The adjacent Foremost Duchy thought it better if the Dark Star County became independent as this would weaken their rivals at Enemy's Blood. Dark Star County eventually became fully independent, albeit only because Foremost protected it from Enemy's Blood. The LDR then made a deal with the Hydrans, gaining Gatling phaser technology in exchange for a promise to never rejoin the Lyran Empire. Their "smooth hull" ships reflect the cleaner lines of thought and lower maintenance support of the republic.
This ship was designed (by the Lyrans) as a carrier escort, giving up the heavy weapons for increased defensive firepower. Like all escorts, it had aegis fire control (allowing “shoot-look-shoot-again” target tracking). The LDR converted one of their few war cruisers to provide protection for their largest fighter-carrier, which was also built on a war cruiser hull. This ship has two ready racks and deck crews to support the fighters from the carrier it is escorting. The Federation codenameis Jaguar-DE Known names include Democratic Majority.
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.
