This package is fixing some bugs, upgrades to features from later versions of Oolite and, inspired by Shipbuilders original
message "Whilst you are free (and encouraged) to re-use any of the scripting, models or texturing in this OXP", includes some
new features, all of them to be removed if Shipbuilder disagrees.
changed "rear_weapon_type" to "aft_weapon_type" (shipdata.plist)
included the missing "exhaust", following the Star Trek design (shipdata.plist)
included "explosive_shrapnel" which is used in "death_actions" but not part of the OXP (shipdata.plist)
relocated some flashers and used "colors = " instead of "color = " (shipdata.plist)
added shiplibrary.pist to replace the obsolete demoships.plist
some small modifications at the model
changed fore lasers to "multiply" to be similar to the Star Trek concept (shipdata.plist)
changed "death_actions" to a ship-script:
The scrip is handling messages, death actions (including escape pods), and some new features
included a normal map and modified the diffuse map slightly to work better with the normal map (and to fix some problems)
As mentioned above this are not part of the original OXP and will be removed if Shipbuilder disagrees:
added 2x port and 2x starboard weapons (same as in the Star Trek movies NPC's hardly use them)

assigned GalTech escape pods to the ships (a bit redesigned to fit Starfleet)
