You might want to start downloading this map before you read my review, due to the slightly above average file size - but don't worry, you won't be disappointed.
As seen in a POTD recently, this map uses textures mostly see in klingon maps - a nice change from the voy ones I have to say. There are multiple levels on this map, linked by stairs and lifts. Both sides meet outside in a section hovering above a lava pit, with an odd powerup or two. Above the walkways, are some nice lights, and scattered throughout are flame torches colour coded to the side of the map you are on. Near the top in this section is a spyglass style glass wall, perhaps you can do something fancy with the photon to get past that.
It would have been nice to see some weapons in this map other than the phaser, however as the readme states, the map is designed for disintegration and specialties modes only.
I couldn't find any overlaps or missing textures, so that's good, the lighting could do with a bit of work, but thats nitpicking.
The map is rather large, I would suggest at least 8 players at any one time to enjoy it to its potential.
The map also includes some nice music to listen to while you wait to respawn :)
Obviously a lot of hard work has gone into this map and I would like to see it on some servers very soon!
Go get it now (if you ignored my previous advice).
