Is it canon or fanon that the Caspar drones are based on the Lola III? --Neufeld 12:33, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

There currently no Canon information on them, other then mentions here and there from what I've found. I know Lola has been mentioned as basis of the Casper. However, its best not to list it until something detail comes out in a canon source. I suspect when Historical: Liberation of Terra does come out finally, the Caspers will be included in it with details we need. Anything else is here say. -- Wrangler 13:31, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! --Neufeld 14:45, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
Ugh...I wanta say I've seen someplace where they were based on existing ship frames, but I can't be sure it was the Lola. Knowing me, however, it was a supposition from someone on CBT's forums. --Revanche (talk|contribs) 18:54, 26 March 2010 (UTC)
Actually, there is a canon source: The Star League page 61:
The SDS was a series of free-roving system defenders called M-5 Drones. The drones were automated warships that packed the punch of a battlecrusier in the frame of a Lola destroyer. These drone ships, dubbed Caspars, were designed to defend a planet against enemy vessels.
Found it while I was doing research for the SDS article.--Mbear 19:21, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
