You might only have just enough time to recognize the shape of the ship.
This is the possibly best view of all; it means the pilot has not considered you an enemy target and is leaving.
Image received via long range tachyon transmission. This is a representative Lyssul vessel. They all follow the same basic design with differences only in size and proportional aspects of weaponry. all have four engines and can maneuver with a speed that's quite literally unbelievable until you see it. This particular craft is about 10 meters in length and carries four phase beam cannons. It's a one "man" ship with the pilot occupying the forward quarter of the central fuselage.
I am back and on my way to you page. I am also happy to report that the place passed inspection (which was just a formality) and that I will be moving in gradually over the weekend. (Break out the grape Nehi, Radar; I feel like celebrating!)
It's piloted by avian creatures about the size of parrots! So far I've got aliens who look like they're made out of rock, fox-headed bipeds, snake-like beings - and now I'm working on some kind of bug thing. But a friendly bug thing, something like a ladybug or a wooly worm.

Ah, wicked design on this bad boy!
Thanks. I wanna get away from ships designed for and by humans. The Lyssul, by the way, are a serpentine species, averaging about 3 three meters in length. They're a constructed species, using the tech left behind by their designers when those vanished away over 50,000 years ago.
Thank you. I've been trying to figure out where I came up with the name. It was supposed to be for another group, but I'm working now on establishing a backstory for the Lyssul. Anyway, glad you like it.
it is my intention to make one, though I can't guarantee it will look exactly the same. I also see that i goofed on the length. If the minifig pilot can sit inside that forward center fuselage, then the ship must be actually larger than 10 meters in length since I don't want to change the proportions all that much. Well, I'll "divide that bear's hide when I've killed it." to paraphrase a recent quote. Anyway, I'm glad you like it.

It is possessed of a very sinister aspect, would be quite interesting in mini-fig scale. Nice.
I have a confession to make. I was half asleep when I uploaded it and I'd intended it to be a new design for the Rim Worlders. But, somehow, as I discovered when I viewed the page, that I had typed in "Lyssul" instead. Where that name came from I have no idea. anyway, it's in mini fig scale, yes, and I'm going to have difficulties when I make the plastic version. I don't think Lego makes curved sections of the right color that are large enough and I've never seen any on the other sites, so I'll probably have to square it off a bit here and there. Anyway, it's a Lyssul ship now and Lyssul it shall remain. Now if I could just figure out WHO the Lyssul are.....
