This is a small, older model escort frigate made by Mindblip. It has the original, simple low res textures. It is fast, maunverable, and lightly armed and shielded. Most of it's weapons are designed for head on attachs, quick hit and runs. These are great in packs attacking larger, more powerfull ships or such battles with smaller raiders. Mindblip has indicated he is doing updated textures, so if you don't like them, the new ones will be released as an update pack as soon as they are done. This ship is low poly and low res, so it will run fine on any system, and blows up real nice. Uses these to defend convoys are bases or backup for larger ships.
Starforce Productions Ashton Credits: Model and texture: Mindblip Conversion-Decoy Additional texture: Pentserv22 (glow alterations) Weapons-Taken from the MIranda and Durandals torpedo Hardpoints-starforce2 Icon work-USSCarter Beta Testers: Blackrook and Pentserv22 The ashton is a ship slightly newer than the Miranda but a bit smaller, more of a light escort or armed trasnport/rescue ship that could fit between the Excelcior and Ambassador eras. It is fast with stronger phasers and a pair of Foreward facing canons that fire more TNG era beams. Each Saucer phaser cluster does 300 damage (150 each beam, except the fore beam which is a single 300) and each Phaser cannon does 300 damage. This Means it can do up to 900 Damage foreward. It has 1 large cargo bay for launching shuttles, but has not been scripted for this purpose. Known bugs: Overpowered glow-If the glow is too much, open the "original textures" folder, and place the files in their proper places. A separate readme there will give you instructions. This will also solve the problem of an extremely dim ship to an extent if your graphics card does not do enhanced glow.
