File Description

"Hey, look," you're probably saying, "another new file from Dan1025. Must be more Cardassians." Well, you're wrong. SURPRISE!

Dan1025 brings us an early Christmas present-- the Dauntless class, seen in "Hope and Fear" (VOY). Technically not a Federation starship, but rather an elaborate ruse perpetrated by the alien named Arturis, the Dauntless design apparently so impressed Starfleet that they rushed a non-slipstreaming version into immediate production.

Whether or not you believe the story, you won't believe the quality of this mesh. Dan poly-reduced this one considerably, but it still sits at well over 4000 poly. That's less than half of the original mesh, and it makes this little ship look fantastic. As always, the included details --build button, wireframe, Admirals Log pic, even new torpedoes based on stock-- are exemplary.

You won't be disappointed with this one. Download it today.

:cool:

Readme
This is a new Federation Dauntless Class Starship, made by poly reducing Jb06's Dauntless from BCFiles. The model has 2 textures (512x512) and a poly count of 4300 (reduced from 10500). The poly count may seem a little high but I've had dozens of them onscreen at once during the course of testing them and there's little to no lag.

Included in this mod are:

SOD file
Ship textures
Borg textures
Ship ODF
Weapon ODFs
AdmiralsLog picture
Buildbutton
Wireframe
