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 Discovery class has been refitted with a basic shield, improved weapons but a weaker hull. The primative systems have limited any real major improvements to the ship and the Federation lacks the time and resources into properly refitting 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. One of the oldest, but most nimble ships in the game has been refitted with defiant pulse canons and quantum torpedo's making it effectively a cheaper defiant class.
No sooner do I log back into legacy than acid brings out his latest relic from the boneyard.
This refit sees the Discovery Class Scout called back into service, not as a scout, but more of a proverbial spear. The weapons upgrades have turned this for lack of a better word, "tin can", into a minor escort vessel capable of standing toe to toe with a klingon destroyer, a mini defiant?? I may have to agree....
Textures are once again very good, complimenting the scene that acid has provided for us.
Nice addition to the relic collection, this series of ships seems to give a bit more diversity to those who love there amada battles, and it is somewhat satisfying to destroy the odd enemy cruiser with something that is 200 years older.
<--------------- Discovery 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 Discovery The Discovery TNG Relic Refit has a long story. Since being decommissioned in the early years of the Federation, the Discovery 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 weapons have been improved slightly with the installation of the defiant pulse canons which were compatible with the banks onboard and quantum torpedo‘s. Its effectively an older version of the Defiant. The engines have been tweaked to go faster and they have better sensors. The hull however, due to years of sitting in space and museums, has become slightly weaker. The Discovery has been completely kitted out and a single ship has power comparable to the constitution class. 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. Installation: Copy files from folders to Legacy. Copy all *.dds in folder to: Legacy>Textures>DDS* Copy all *.m3d files in folder to: Legacy>m3d Copy all *.odf ships in folder to: Legacy>odf>ships The mod has been tested successfully on stock, trek battles and ultimate universe. demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hx3oq74inXg delete/rename the file db.pak in your game directory, unless you have Trek Battles/UUmod The retexture was done by myself (acidfluxxbass) using a stock Discovery class starship. The file can be used by all and is a free resource. Enjoy!
