File Description

This vessel has very smooth and sleek lines. It fits in the timeline post intrepid, obviously inspired by the design as well as dominion technology as apparent with the nacelles. The textures are large and well detailed, with fine details such as hull lines, markings, thrusters, life pods, and other essentials in crystal clear quality only 2048 maps and 10000+ poly can give. I'm sure you will enjoy this ship.

Title		: Vivace Class
Filename	:
Version		: 1.0
Date		: 10/29/06
Author		: DJ Curtis
Contact		: PM at Bridge Commander Universe or Bridge Commander Central
Requirements	: NanoFX 2.0B, Elminster's Common Weapons Pack v.3, BC 1.1 patch
Additional	: Blank Registry Textures are Included

This mod includes three ships...

USS Vivace---> Prototype ship.  Slightly more slugish and slower to accelerate.  Weaker shields.  Has only photon torpedoes.
NX-91809       She is also somewhat underpowered as "not all the bugs have been worked out."  Phasers also recharge a bit

USS Schumann-> First production ship of the Vivace Class.  Very manueverable for a ship of its size.  In combat, Schumann
NCC-91810      is a bit more than a match for a Galaxy Class starship, and can even give Supremus a bloody nose, though
	       ultimately it lacks the overall firepower to be considered one of Starfleet's top contenders in a fight.

USS Chopin---> Second production ship of the Vivace Class.  it's capabilities are comparable to the Schumann, though it is
NCC-91815      just slightly more manueverable, and can fire it's phasers 10km further in range.

*****Commissioned in 2387, the first three Vivace Class starships represent a return to the 
explorative roots of Starfleet.  At a size of roughly 400 meters, they are multi-mission starships that fill the roles once 
served by Excelsior and Constellation Class ships.  The Vivace Class's exploration mandate
is visually evident from the ship's large sensor panels.

The Vivace Class has a respectable compliment of weapons and other defensive systems.  With
phasers on par with its more powerful cousin, Supremus, as well quantum torpedo launchers
fitted on producion run versions of the ship, Vivace Class is a product of the lessons
learned in the Dominion War.*****

I worked hard on this mod and I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I do.
I decided that by now, many people will have graphics cards capable of efficiently running 2048 textures, so I have
set them as the default, however if you have trouble with these, 1024 and 512 textures are also included.
Alternatively you can use a photo editor like Paint Shop or Photoshop to resize the "High" folder textures
to 1024 x 1024. Though I have to say that playing at at 2048 will really bring out the details on the ship.
