Firstly, the story behind this class of ship:
In 2335, five of the remaining Constitution Class ships were pulled from mothballs while a second major refit of the class was designed. The refit would upgrade the class to the same standards as modern ships, Ambassador, Rigel, and Renaissance classes. This refit not only addressed the ship's systems, but the ships outer appearance as well.
The USS Shaandra is an exquisite piece of engineering; its design features elements of the Ambassador class but still retains its Constitution legacy. The design is well balanced with a weapons array which complements the design - phasers are mounted in perfect positions allowing the player to target the enemy in frontal, flyby and aft tactical scenarios. The torpedo system is a little strange, although in the read-me it is clearly stated where the quantum and photon torpedoes are, it's very much pot luck as to which type comes out when you fire. The phaser range is quite extensive, allowing you to take pot-shots before engaging in the heat of close battle, this allows you to perhaps lower their shields to a point where you can fire your photons and deal some hull damage.
The download is a port of Wicked Zombie, ModelsPlease, 9thDaihak and Zambie Zan's Bridge commander version of the Shaandra refit.
This download is worthy of my 9/10 rating, it comes to us in a splendid fashion, with excellent documentation accompanying it.
USS Shaandra by wilv Nickname: wilv Email: funkidseventynineataoldotcom Description: This is mearly a port of Wicked Zombie, ModelsPlease, 9thDaihak and Zambie Zan's BC version of the Shaandra refit. All I did was port it and give it and odf. The ship has damage meshes and lights thanks to nEw-GEN team and coolguyli27 from UUM for their advice and walk throughs in this. After a few weeks of talking I finally obtained permission to port this baby and here she is. The version released for BC included two ships but since this was my second port I wanted to keep things simple and not get too overwhelmed so I only made one.
