What's better than 1 ship? Well, it's actually 3! This is exactly what this is. Any guesses to the ships?

That's right, the infamous Wolf359-3 are in here, namely the New Orleans (lots of torpedo tubes and the original test bed for quantum torpedoes) the Cheyenne (a four nacelled cruiser) and the Springfield (with a big...thing...on it...holds torpedoes?). Anyhow, I'm sure most of you have already seen these before, but for those who haven't, they were prototype designs pumped out by Starfleet in an effort to produce 'Anti-Borg' ships. Of course, considering all ships were destroyed at Wolf 359, they all failed. The ships are all cruisers based off the larger Galaxy design. They play more of a supporting role in the fleet, so don't expect them to be punching any holes in battleships, or at least not by themselves.

The Cheyenne you'll want to use as a reconnaissance vessel. Its speed allows it to dart in and out with the info. before it's reacted too, but its armament will achieve little in terms of offensive punch. The Springfield, having a bit more of a punch, can support a larger class while it engages. Again, this won't be doing any one-on-one, but, it has enough power to fight and then cheese it when the enemy re-enforcements come. The New Orleans, the only ship likely to survive in a one-on-one has a large torpedo load and is small, but can be ripped apart fairly easily. She's essentially an artillery ship, so you'll want her behind the bulk of your forces, but still in range of the enemy. No doubt, she's the strongest of the lot.

Graphically, they all look very nice. We do have multiple versions of each on the site, so they provide a little bit more choice to which one you get. In-game, they'll do a straight replacement of the Akira, Intrepid and Steamrunner though when you have the hp's, there is of course nothing stopping you from changing the odf's to your heart's content.

All in all, it's a nice and well done pack. While technically not adding anything new to the scene, you can't fault its quality.

Zero Hour, Wolf 359 Package: Springfield, Cheyenne & New Orleans

==================================================
==================================================

Oncemore, I release ships that are no longer going to appear within the Zero Hour project. 
These three were going to feature as frigates within Zero Hour, and a lot of effort was put into them, poly reducing them, sorting out their textures, and other modifications. 
I eventually ruled them out due to already having too many Federation starships in game.

These three ships replace the stock Akira, Steamrunner and Intrepid.

Springfield > Akira
Cheyenne > Intrepid
New Orleans > Steamrunner

##################################################

Springfield:
------------------------------
The Springfield Class was issued to replace the Miranda & Constitution roles, as a backbone for exploration alongside the Ambassador. Few of these ships were ever made; most missions to be covered by them were undertaken by the Excelsior Class.

==================================================

Cheyenne:
------------------------------
The Cheyenne Class was constructed to replace the aging Constellation Class, and for deep space assignments. Again with the Constellation, these vessels are equipped with four warp nacelles, sharing the weight of warp.

==================================================

New Orleans:
------------------------------
The New Orleans Class was constructed for deep space reconnaissance missions, along with the Springfield & Cheyenne. Unlike the other two however, the New Orleans has Quantum Torpedoes, and was designated to act as a testing ship for these new weapons.
