This mod adds some addition backgrounds to Armada II that were included with the origonal game but not used, because they didn't look quite right. These have been modified to work correctly with the original game, and also includes some original backgrounds.
Redux Backgrounds mod for Star Trek Armada II by Slider17
You may have noticed Armada II came with some additional backgrounds, but they are not used because they are rough in-game. I have reformatted 7 of them to work with the Armada II Background field, accessed via ctrl+r in the map editor. I think they are from Armada I, but I have never had the pleasure...
