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.


The Firefly is part of the Swift OXP, it could be downloaded here: Swift OXP
