Question about Ambassador alternate custome
 
Can we get the original concept design as an alternate ship custome for the Ambassador-class pretty pretty please?

Is the one seen here

Also do you think you guys could get the rights to put Planck-class (the one in the big image at the top and next to the Ambassador concept) as well?

Interesting variant. I'm all for anything that brings more options and diversity to the game. Getting the rights shouldn't be that onerous, and it looks like the wireframes and textures would come with them.

Oh well. Sadly, not bloody likely.

Well it would be nice to see the orginal design(s) for the Ambassador in game, but that 'Shipsof the Line' varient/update is knida sweet.

Guess I am buying that calendar next year!

I would be happier with a decent setup first, then some newer skins for it later.

Just found out the Ships of the Line varient Ambassador class is based on Andrew Proberts orginal Ambassador class painting:

Some details of that 3D model: http://www.trekplace.com/l1d_probertambassador.html
And fully realised here: http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=28446

And finally in battle here: http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=28527

Only encourages my desire for the Ambassador Class in game!

Does this mean that the Ambassador will be an alternate skin for the Exploration Crusier, or that it will be a new type all its own? I am all for those Ambassador variants also being added as skins to the Exploration Crusier in addition to the Ambassador class. Having five or more variations of both the Tier 4 and Tier 5.1 ships(and the Drednaught Crusier if they can manage it) would be awsome!

From what we are told the Ambassdor will bit its own ship and not another skin.


As for the Probert Ambassador, I would love to see it in game. I think Mr. Probert owns the rights to it, but not sure if Cryptic will be allowed to use it. Why? Well lets just say its a private matter.

Thats not only the best Ambassador Variant, but also one of the best Starfleet themed ships i have ever seen.
But i'm afraid the devs would make it a Star Cruiser 2.0.:(

Live long and prosper.
