11 years since Voyager had returned to Sector 001 and the federation have been developing the new armourment technology. They decided to test an early version on an old Nova class starship and the tests were successful so they decided to try it on a Steamrunner. With drastically improved hull and stronger weapons the refit is a must have in any federation fleet. This is not so much a god ship but a representation of prototype armor.
On the back of his last amoured refit acid brings us the Amoured Steamrunner. I always worry about armoured ships because there is always a nagging suceptability once your shields are removed. Nevertheless acid has balanced the hull to compensate.
Pairing it up with a decent sized battle cruiser from the terran empire, the destruction of the oposing ship was to say the least, swift. This is by no means a god vessel, so dont get deluded that you can do an what Voyager did in the episode "End Game" and take on a cube...
But it must be said you better be facing aft of this little hellian before it blows you to smitherines.
The refits textures by acid are somewhat muted, but this is not much of a worry once you engage impulse engines. The glows and bump mapping compliment the ship nicely. Besides, with the firepower that is packed into this great little ship i doubt you will be spending much time looking at it, rather at the bright explosions that your enemies are turning into.
Keep them coming acid
