What the **** is that supposed to mean? Can we adde the Miranda, or even make the Nebula Class the new scout. That ship doesn't deserve to have all the treats.

The possibly was to the upgrading of the ships to make them look more modern... Additionally, making a ship "act" like a scout should be easy. just make it faster, slightly weaker weaponary and hull points and give it increased sensor range, voila!

I wish I knew how to create a ship from scratch but I don't even know the proper program to use. Joelteon, do you think we should go for the Oberth, or the Nebula? I'm kind of tied because you are right about the Oberth being timeless, but the Nebula is the one in the proper generation we are going to... By this much...

If you use some sort of carrier or any ship the size of a destroyer or larger, I think the probe_torpedo class label (used with a special weapon of some sort) could be used to launch a 2D ship as a scout, but it wouldn't be able to return. I haven't gotten it to work, but you might. I don't feel like messing with it anymore.

I don't think the Nebula would make a good scout since its pretty big for a scout. Maybe think of making the Intrepid a scout/explorer since thats what it is anyway.

Good point, the Intrepid was meant to be an advanced scout, yet at the same time, numerous ships are dedicated to eploration, the Galaxy class at first, the Nebula AWACS, Oberth, infact, the Venture is the only ship out of the list that we know DOESN'T scout... Personally, I woulg go for the Oberth, without changing much, they fill in the role of scouter extremely easily, maybe if we can get some modernies textures, than it'll be more feasable, simply becuase I couldn't see a Runabout doing a scout mission for a long time...
