This is a conversion of Pneumonic81's Nebula Class Explorer for Starfleet Command 2.  I scaled the model to 452 meters and converted it along with it's textures to Bridge Commander format.  The textures were modified by myself to match the other models I've converted.  The hardpoint file was written by me based on DamoclesX Venture harpoint file.  With extensive modifications :-)   The ship's icon display was created via a render in 3D Studio Max.  Credit for the tactical weapons icons goes to EremiticWolf.  He came up with the ingenious idea of using the same icon in the same location to represent the "in arc" indicator.  The effect is a "lit up" indicator when a weapon is in arc.  This helps considerably to prevent a cluttered display.

The followin information is included just for fun.  It is copyrighted by  Grahm Kennedy 1998 from http://www.ditl.org.  The Daystrom Institute Technical Library.


The Nebula class was fielded in the 2350's to provide a smaller, more numerous counterpart to the Galaxy class then under construction. The design was intended to parallel that of the Galaxy class as closely as possible in order to allow for many identical systems to be installed in both classes; this has resulted in significant improvements in the design and construction processes for the Nebula class and thus allowed comparatively high numbers to be fielded. Compared to the Galaxy class the Nebula has a more compact shape - the engineering hull is mounted directly to the underside of the saucer section, a measure which saves some 200 metres in length. 

The major difference in capability is the addition of a prominent housing aft of the saucer section of the Nebula class. This enables the vessel to carry any one of a variety of special equipment pods - current models include a high capacity sensor pod, an enhanced weapons pod, a colony transport pod, an emergency field hospital unit, or a science laboratory pod. Although the basic Nebula design has approximately 80% of the capability of a Galaxy class vessel in most areas, the addition of the mission pod brings that figure up to 95% or more in that specific area. This flexibility actually allows the Nebula design to accomplish almost identical missions despite its smaller size. 

In service the Nebula class has proved highly satisfactory, and in many ways these ships form the backbone of Starfleets exploratory and scientific programmes. Like the Galaxy class they have received regular upgrades to their systems, most notably a new Warp Core design. With the advent of the threats from the Romulan, Dominion and Borg, Starfleet invested in sixty seven new enhanced weapon pods for the Nebula class; most of the vessels now carry this as a standard item. the pod carries eight standard torpedo tubes and a stock of 300 casings, approximately doubling the ships overall rate of fire.
