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.
With the end of the General War and cutbacks in production as the economy tried to recover from the strains of the conflict, the Lyran Star Empire continued to produce Panther light cruiser hulls. This choice was an economic measure since building Hellcat heavy battlecruisers was more expensive. However, the Panther light cruisers could be quickly converted into more powerful types in the event of renewed conflict. While the heavier Hellcat could not contain X-technology, the lighter Wildcat could. Known names include Bloodraker, Deathraker, Fleshraker, Moonraker, Novaraker, and Sunraker.
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.
