Personally, I have mixed feelings about this. Yes, it's a well done ship. The textures are flawless and the design is good, but, I can't help but think it's essentially the recently uploaded Starfinder class. The nacelle configuration is different, yes, but not really significantly. It even has similar weaponry.
However, it's not my place to detract from a fine looking ship. If anything, this version is closer to the "Pathfiner" design seen on USSMiranda than the Starfinder (if that was the intention) and I think she generally looks a little better than the Starfinder. She sports mesh and textures from SSA's recent Akira mesh upload, which gives it a real kick and is nice to see they're being made use of. In addition, she comes with the new "Quantum Chain Reaction Pulsar", though unfortunately, this comes without a button. All in all, she's a decent download, but perhaps next time, it would be nice to see a slightly different design with seemingly more than just a nacelle change.
