"Cadets, how did the Lyrans produce their Lion dreadnought? Anyone beside Cadet Granger? Yes, Cadet Granger."
"Sir, it involved cutting a Tiger-class heavy cruiser in half and installing a new center section."
"As usual, Cadet Granger is correct. The rest of you, study your Lyran Master Starship Book. It isn't a paperweight, you know."
The fifth volume in the long-anticipated Master Starship Book series is now available. It includes every Lyran ship in Star Fleet Battles, including X-ships, Y-ships, and R1 units that are specific to the Lyran Star Empire. Lyrans are interesting because some ships were assigned to particular duchies. (This book does not focus on ships from the Lyran Democratic Republic; those will be in their own book.)
Every ship is illustrated. All updates, corrections, and errata have been added. The ships are in order (regardless of the product they came from) with the enhanced format listing detailed information in a consistent manner.
This book contains the descriptions of the ships, but no SSDs.
