Hi everyone, Just wanted to see how something like this might go down in the community. This is not exactly a 'refit' so to speak, rather the crew would have been able to re-configure the Enterprise's systems to emit a High Energy Beam out the deflector dish without any assistance...apparently :) This was done in the TNG two part Episode we all remember well, The Best of Both Worlds. As of this moment I am labelling the class as a Galaxy class refit: HE Beam due to the fact that re-configuration just takes too much space up in the ship selector in-game. The HE Beam simply fires as a main phaser would and there are a few things left to do such as disable certain systems on the Enterprise to reflect this re-configuration according to the data from the TNG episode. But you sorta get the point, and to put it mildly it totally wastes Borg ships! If you think it would make a good one and want it as a mod, I will finish it ASAP. There is also a little amusing gameplay/audio overlay video of this ship here. Credit to DareGore's Sol system which is depicted in one of these screens.
Fine work but one thing. Just remember to make sure that the beam is locked to fire forward only.
Yeah its firing arc is pretty well limited to forward only. I will lock it down further once the testing is over. I'd love to see if I can enable the firing of this weapon to when the ship is at full stop only.
