    Sure, here it is.  A few notes, though...

1) There is already another ship, a variety of the wasp, I believe, called
the Firefly.  But the elves don't care.

2) The ship was designed using my own variation of the ship construction
rules.  So, comparing it to the War Captains Companion system will show
anomalies.

3)  In mys system, for those who haven't seen it, maneuverability is
determined by size and design, not materials, and better MC's provide AR
bonuses.  This, is part of the reason this ship has such a low AR.

	The Firelfy is a light attack craft, designed to attack in
numbers, not singley.  Its primary attack strategy is to loop to and from
the target ship.  As it approaches, it uses its heavy stone ballista.  It
then passes, making a shearing attempt.  It then loops back, readying its
weapon for another run.
	The Firelfy is sometimes used to drop Spirit Warriors on ships.
On rare occasions they are used for boarding.  They also see regular use
as landing craft and shuttles.
