Lyrans and Hydrans and WYNs, oh my! New enemies, new allies, and new challenges for Star Fleet Battles. Newly revised for 2015!
Explore these new empires, read the descriptions of their ships, and find out the history of these empires in the scenarios that are included!
Lyrans are allied with the Klingons and are mortal enemies of the Kzintis. These Lynx-humanoids developed the powerful expanding sphere generator. Their catamaran hulls are easily converted into larger trimaran warships.
Hydrans are methane breathers who border the Lyrans and Klingons. Once conquered by both empires, they fought their way to freedom and now threaten those who once defeated them. They fight with deadly fusion beams or hellbores (command ships have both!). They are also known for their lethal Stinger fighters.
WYNs are a vibrant society built by Kzinti and Lyran refugees, supported by Orion Pirates. They are surrounded by dense radiation fields that allow their ragtag fleet to have a fighting chance against larger ships that have been damaged by that radiation.
The 54-page rulebook includes information about the weapons (fusion beams, hellbore cannons, expanding sphere generators) and WYN Radiation Zone, as well as the background information on the ships. It has four scenarios and one campaign. Annexes and the Master Ship Chart for the ships are also included.
You must have the Star Fleet Battles Basic Set (or the Master Rulebook) to use this material. Most of the material will also require Advanced Missions. Also useful are Modules J, K, M, R2, and R3. To fly the ships you will need the Module C1 SSD book.
