The firefly was a derivative of Swift from Benulobiweed Inc.

To quote "The Firefly was an attempt by Benulobiweed to add extra cargo capacity to the Swift by the simple expedient of adding a detachable cargo pod within the open framework of the hull. After a rethink of the Swift design, Benulobiweed Inc.'s Chief Developer 'A' managed to rectify the handling difficulties as well as add cargo and crew accommodation and named it the Tepui and a short while after, the Tepui's variant the Lampyris."

Notable Features

Very small, fast and agile, but a little fragile. Beam laser to the fore with Twin Plasma Cannon to the aft.


The design is very antiquated and is similar to an old starship, utilising nacelles.
