The year is 2390, the dominion have regrouped and have made a another lunge for the alpha quadrant. The federation this time are losing and with few ships, they have decided to call up some derelict golden-oldies! The Daedalus class has been refitted with a basic shield and slightly improved weapons but a weaker hull. The primative systems have limited any real major improvements to the ship. The hull has rusted and decayed slightly weaking it. However, the federation are desperate and are willing to call up any ship possible in a desperate attempt to fight off the dominion. The Daedalus makes a fitting medical ship.
Today sees Acidfluxxbass provide us with another relic. It seems the federation are getting mighty desperate for ships,and so acid has revived the Daedalus class. I rarely use this ship in combat because of its defensive cababilities. However acid's refit prompted me to take another look at it.
This ship once again has acids great textures applied to it, giving the ship that even more feeble look. However, looks in this case can be deceptive, while not refited to single handedly take down the dominion fleet the Daedalus can take a bit of a beating before dropping off the front lines like a fly. Its shields give it that much needed few seconds to escape from a barrage of disruptors. Ideal for a hospital ship in any century.
Being a smaller manouverable ship, any of its opponents should really come into that category. I wouldnt recommend trying to take on a Jem Hadar Fighter in this of course. But if you are in the mood to cheat death a TOS/TMP ship might fill your needs sufficiently.
Another pleasing addon from acid.
<--------------- Daedalus Class TNG Relic Refit ---------------> This mod will not overwrite any files. It is a series of files that when put in their respective folders, will make the ship playable as well as the stock daedalus. The Daedalus TNG Relic Refit has a long story. Since being decommissioned in the early years of the Federation, the Daedalus class ships have simply rusted up and decayed. However, due to the federations ship numbers being low in the second dominion war (non-canon), the federation have made a desperate attempt at replenishing some of the ships and giving them a quick refit before throwing them back into action. Due to the primitive systems on the old ships, the shields are very basic. The hull however, due to years of sitting in space and museums, has become slightly weaker. The Daedalus acts a vital medical ship to the federation with the ability to emergency transport crew off of destroyed ships. The shields and hull are strong for the ships safety but the federation didn’t see fit to replace the weapons but to tune them to optimum power. The ship has a nice bump map with new textures which give a detailed 'decayed' look. The ship has been tested on Aftermath and UU and should work on TB and the stock game. to see some demos: http://www.youtube.com/user/acidfb Installation: Copy files from folders to Legacy.
