Two-and-half decks

Upper deck

The Cockpit is located at the extreme forward of the ship. It's a blend of brass, wood, and ultra-modern with holograms. It's adjoining room acts as the main meeting room/holo table plotting room. The ship's main living space is located just beyond the ladder to reach the Half-deck above. What would have been the troop deck on canon Tau Manta dropship. It's been completely redesigned for the bunkage of quite a few people. While retaining almost a RV feel with a small workshop. A airlock system is located at the extreme stern where a upper ramp/door system would have been on the canon ship design.


The space on a canon Tau Manta where the 'command deck' would have been, it's been completely given over to a upper airlock system. Allowing the Lunar Fox to dock to other ships/stations with it's 'roof'.

Lower Deck

Only internal part of the ship to retain it's original function has a vehicle deck. With slight modifications to allow shipping containers and other a sorted cargo to be stored. The whole deck while accessible from the upper one is a giant airlock system. The whole floor can be lowered to allow on and off loading without the whole ship landing. Via the stern ramp system.

The Lunar Fox was a project started early 2018 by Dakota While it started as a "secret" build others where quickly pulled into it as he called in favors to figure out different engineering challenges. Also the first construction project to include the use of Tau Builder drones based off Tau drones build by Dakota.

Class Quirks

Swoosh! - The Lunar Fox's doors was designed with help from some Trekkie friends of his.

Always on Holiday - Oddly the ship doesn't seem to like being crewed by people in uniform.

Arrr! - Helm only responds if the pilot is wearing a pirate bandana.

The Ethereal Ghost - People swear they see a Tau Ethereal Sitting in a command chair out of the corner of their eyes every so often in the upper airlock.

This is your pilot - Anyone using the intercom will sound male. Any attempts to correct this results in everything sounding like it is being yelled at full volume until the fix is undone.


Fenspace's Best-armed Houseboat at the current time.


  1. "Park a Warthog in the bay of a Tau Vessel? For some this be rage inducing. For Dakota it doesn't even make him bat an eye."
