Hello AF Ronin: First of, I would like to say that you have done a fantastic job on the ships. You have a hard core Trekor here. Was a boy watching the very first show of the orginal series. As a avid gamer, I began with the very basic Zocchi game and models. Moved to Star Fleet Battles and the miniature gaming, untill the rule book got to be about 10 pounds. Still love to set up and play Federation and Empire. Even had FASA's Combat Simulator and miniatures. Untill they ran into copyright problems. I got to thinking on how it would be nice to see Star Trek items in this game. And here you show up. Been having a ball playing with your ships. And you have provided me with the insperation to make a few of my own. Would like to share them with you. I have made some Gorn and Klingon ships. The Gorn are based off of your Light Cruiser design. I made a Freighter/Tug and a Medium Weight Troop Carrier. It can hold either 1,000 Legions or 4,000. Depending which pods you are using In SFB, the Gorn Tugs were suppost to be based off the CA class, but looked more like a CL in the setup. Added two hook/claws on each wing and a center one that would be on a extending boom. The center one would pull a saucer shaped pod. The design could also be used as a FPS Tender, when added as part of a FPS Fleet. Just leave the side hooks bare. My Klingon ships are based off the Reconition Manual. Made the T-5 Assault Ship. Was not intended, but it does look a lot like your D-7. D-16 Destroyer,and K-4 Gunboat. I am still trying to figure out how to double stack the engine units like you have. Mine are always offset, no matter what I do. Perhaps you can show me the "trade secret". Let me know if you are interested in seeing the ships. Can't wait to see what you will have for the Tholians.

I have not checked out your Gorn ships yet but as for your Klingons the only one I found that was working was your D-2. But I did like it. So I'm tweeking it a bit and will include it in the update. In fact I'm making a medium hull version of it and it will be the starting "flagship" for the Klingons.
Nice job Atlas. As for the other ships I couldn't get working. If you could provide screenshots and post them here that would be great.
