For Cataclysm 2nd.
I was never satisfied with the Frigate selection in the Cataclysm game. Lacking at best, insulting at worst, the frigates for the Somtaaw side were made of pure gimmick and no substance. I absolutely hated the voice acting for the multibeam frigate, also.
Replacing them would be these frigates. Not all the conceptual designs are shown.
