  • Temporal Defense Initiative Regenerative Shield Array visuals now display the proper rainbow reflection.
  • The ship pack that contains the D9 Dreadnought Battlecruiser [T6], Prototype Dreadnought Cruiser [T6], or Thrai Dreadnought Warbird [T6] has been renamed to "23rd Century Tier 6 Undiscovered Dreadnought" to be more visually distinct from the "Special Requisition Pack - 26th Century Heavy Dreadnought Tier 6 Ship" pack.
