Columbia Class



This is the second of three TLE (The Lost Era) designs, submitted by Shadow (from AFC). As with the other two, this is suppose to be a canon design, though again, I do not recognise it myself.

The ship itself is a fairly nice one, good textures are used, and the model appears to be fairly smooth. This one would probably serve as the 'middle' of the three ships, being the medium strength. Again, I may be wrong, that is just my take on it. :)

here is the USS Columbia , Foundation Class, my version of the Excelsior study with 2 nacelles.

It is a HQ-Model with 5475 polys. Since it runs perfectly on my computer I think that’s no problem. The SOD is scaled to fit an Excelsior in size. 

I made the model following the few photos that you can find on the net. If you want to see some reference go to  http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/  . 

Since this ship has no official class name since decades, I came up with one. Change it if you do not like it. It is just for gaming purposes.
