There seems to be a passing resemblance between our ballista,  and this fine old lady from out of the deep.

…….. And so, we give our ballista a name.  Firefly.   Lampyridae,  for those that prefer a Latin twist.   It doesn’t sound particularly warlike or terrifying, I know.   But there you have it.   Her highest calling is as a research vessel, intended to put some small illumination on artifacts salvaged from the shadows of a long dead world.

You are welcome, Kate.
