Akira class separation Akira class separation

Interesting concept. While there's no evidence to suggest that the Akira class starship could separate, either from the model or from the scenes and episodes which show one of these majestic Starfleet cruisers, there's a school of thought in Trek fandom that says that every ship can separate its saucer section. How a Sabre or Steamrunner would be able to pull this off is beyond me, and the Norway would be at a particular disadvantage, well, this just might be the mod for you.

As mentioned above, you need to use the "replaceweapon" ability conferred by the 1.2.5 patch, and without it, you'll have a hard time getting this to work. Saucer separation is notoriously impossible to get to work due to the Galaxy class being hardcoded, but the 1.2.5 patch is thankfully capable of working around that little issue. It's not for everyone, of course, but it makes neat mods like this one possible.

Worth a look.

Okay so an interesting idea, but I think it could benefit from a specially made akira model rather than the default one.

The sauce looks great, I can see a similarity to a nacelle-less Saber Class. On the other hand, the Stardrive looks like a Weapon pod with Nacelles.

why? akira should never separate, it was intended to be a combination of gunship and carrier. Hence the front shuttle bay and rear shuttle bay.

I agree with Major Payne, this would really be something if the ship itself was an Akira-like vessel designed for seperation.

Just because you can do something........
#6 InterstellarMachine 2008-12-17 08:56
Ooo, that looks like it would hurt.
#7 Loskene 2008-12-22 15:11
...doesn't mean that you should.
#8 SiKkSiXx 2009-03-01 23:29
give da guy a break. atleast he tryd =]
#9 Oxygen_Thief 2009-06-30 16:57
All I did was put the files where they belong and to add the seperation part to the Akira-class ship. but once seperated, the two section don't move and don't even reintergrate into a full Akira-class starship. HELP.
#10 rikkardnovacat 2010-02-03 11:35
i think the seperation point should have been at the tip of the arms connecting to the saucer, so you have the nacells, weapon pod/ (now) secondary command center and the arms that connect the saucer to the rear... in the rear, so all you have is the saucer as one peice
