New space monster -- the Crystal entity. Fixed bug of SpaceX05.bmp, which caused space28.mod & space31.mod incorrectly textured. Increase the power & weapon mass space of Federation, Klingon, and Romulan ships. Increase the strength of Federation, Klingon, and Romulan shields. Decrease the hull, weapon, and power mass space of Borg ships. Increase the cost of Borg items, the mass of Borg armor, and the energy drain of Borg weapons. Decrease the energy output of Borg warpcore. Add one more aft primary hardpoint for Intrepid, Excelsior, and Nebula. Add two aft heavy hardpoints for Defiant. Reconfigured the firing arc of Intrepid, Excelsior, Akira, Nebula, Galaxy, Sovereign, Vor'cha, and Scimitar. Borg W359 Cube uses base cutting beams.
