Here is an interesting mod from Starforce Productions and Outalance Shipyards. The Ingram Class ship pack. This mod comes in three versions. The NX Ingram (Prototype) U.S.S. Ingram (TMP) & U.S.S. Ingram (TNG). Each ship has been balanced for it's era. And comes with a interesting feature, extra mega phasers on her warp pylons. The ship pack comes with an interesting lineage in the readme. For those who want to know such things. This will make an excellent addition to your starfleet inventory.

INGRAM IS THE CULMINATION OF TWO SEPERATE YET CONCURRENT PROJECTS BEGUN ROUGHLY 16 EARTH YEARS AGO IN 2274. THE CONCEPT OF A 'SPACE CONTROL SHIP' WAS PRESENTED TO AND SERIOUSLY CONSIDERED BY SENIOR OFFICERS OF STARFLEET COMMAND. IT'S PURPOSE WAS TO FILL A GAP PERCEIVED BY MANY TO EXIST IN LARGE CRAFT AVAILABILITY, CAUSED PARTIALLY BY DISPARITY IN SIZE BETWEEN THE CORONADO AND ARIEL CLASS STARSHIPS. HOWEVER IT WAS NOT UNTIL 2277 THAT A PROGRAM TO DEVELOPE SUCH A VESSEL WAS IMPLEMENTED. ORIGINALLY, 'SPACE CONTROL' CALLED FOR VESSEL WITH THE ABILITY TO TAKE CONTROL OF A HOSTILE AREA WITH A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF EFFORT. AND HOLD SAID AREA FOR AN UNSPECIFIED LENGTH OF TIME, OR UNTIL REINFORCEMENTS COULD ARRIVE TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE. SUCH SHIP WOULD FREE THE LARGER ARIEL CLASS SHUTTLECARRIERS FOR LARGE-SCALE COLONIZATION AND POSSIBLY MASS RELOCATION PROJECTS. SINCE THEY MIGHT ALSO FIND THEMSELVES IN SMALLER-SCALE HOSTILE SITUATIONS, A LARGE HANGAR CAPACITY WAS REQUIRED FOR THE EMBARKATION OF TACTICAL COMBAT CRAFT. THE FINAL HULL DESIGN WHICH MEET THE AFOREMENTIONED REQUIREMENTS IS THAT OF THE U.S.S. INGRAM, DELIVERED IN 2289. ORIGINALLY PRESENTED TO STAR FLEET IN THE FORM OF THE U.S.S. EXCELSIOR. IT WAS DECIDED AFTER A BRIEF SHAKEDOWN, THAT HER PRIMARY AND HER SECONDARY HULL NEEDED MAJOR REWORKING. THE INGRAM WAS ALTERED TO MEET THE NEW SPECIFICATIONS WHILE STILL IN INITIAL DRYDOCK, AND THE EXCELSIOR IS CURRENTLY BEING RETROFITTED. IN EARLY 2275, A NEW TYPE OF STAR DRIVE WAS SOUGHT TO PROVIDE HIGH-OUTPUT, LOW CONSUMPTION PROPULSION FOR THE EXTRA-LONG RANGE OF THE SUPERSCOUT CLASSES. A DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM WAS AUTHORIZED IN 2276, AND THE EVENTUAL RESULT WAS THE TRANSWARP DRIVE PROPULSION SYSTEM UTILIZING SELECTIVE (AND CLASSIFED) MANIPULATION OF THE ANTIMATTER FLOW AS IT PASSES THROUGH THE NACELLE HOUSING. TRANSWARP DRIVE (OFFICIAL NAME- KOELLER UIT K2 PROPULSION SYSTEM) FAILED TO ACHIVE THE POWER CURVE ENVISIONED BY IT'S DESIGNERS. ALSO, IT'S COMPLEXITY AND SUSCEPTILITY TO EXTRANEOUS FACTORS RESULTED IN ENORMOUS ENGINE NACELLES. WHICH IN TURN REQUIRED A HULL THAT WAS LARGER THAN NECESSARY FOR RESEARCH PURPOSES. CONSEQUENTLY, THE TRANSWARP SYSTEM PROVED INADEQUATE FOR THE SUPERSCOUT PROGRAM. IN 2283, AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO SALVAGE THE CONCEPT BY PAIRING IT WITH THE SPACE CONTROL DESIGN, WHICH IN TURN RESULTED IN THE ORIGINAL CONFIGURATION OF THE U.S.S. EXCELSIOR HOWEVER, TRANSWARP'S PROMISE OF ATTAINING UNPRECIDENTED SPEEDS WHILE MANTAINING REQUIRE SAFTEY FACTORS NEVER MATERIALIZED. IT HAS UNOFFICIALLY BEEN PLACED BACK ON RESEARCH AND DEVELOPEMENT STATUS. AND A SOPHISTICATED FORM OF STANDARD WARP DRIVE WITH THE PROBLEM THAT AROSE AS A RESULT OF THE INSTALLATION OF THE TRANSWARP SYSTEM, AND IT'S SUBSEQUENT REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT. THE TWO EXSISTING EXCELSIOR CLASS SHIPS HAVE PROVED DIFFICULT AND TIME-CONSUMING TO PROCURE, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE COSTS HAVE INCREASED DRAMATICALLY. TWO OTHER SHIPS ORIGINALLY PLANNED FOR THE CLASS, SIMONOV AND RICHMOND HAVE BEEN CANCELLED. THE EXCELSIOR IS EXPECTED TO BE DELIVERED IN EARLY 2291, AN ALONG WITH INGRAM WILL BE PLACED UNDER THE JURISDICTION OF TACFLEET THEIR PEFORMANCE AD EFFECTIVEESS IN THE NEAR FUTURE MAY ULTIMAELY DETERMINE THE VIABLITY OF THE SPACE CONTROL CONCEPT. =============================================================== =======SFP Disclaimer======== This BC Conversion contains work created by or under copyright jurisdiction of Outalance mod team.
