Ships I wish they'd release
 
I would love to get a little more love out there for the starter ships (Oberth, NX, TOS Constitution, and Miranda), and I wish that they'd make fleet versions of them to use. I love the NX-class, and despite its size, because of its larger crew compared to the Tactical Escort, I think it would make a decent fleet ship. Almost all of the normal ships (and most of their refits and retrofits) have been given fleet variants, and i would love to see these ones join the fleets.

in addition, I would like to personally point out that the Ambassador-class should be introduced. I'm not sure what class it could be (cruiser comes to mind), or how it would be scaled, but it's been said that the refit Ambassadors in the Dominion War "came close to rivaling their Galaxy Class cousins in ability" after being upgraded, and come on-the Excelsior, Miranda and Constitution are still in service, and those are over a century old. I see little reason why the Ambassador would be retired, since it's been said to be even stronger than those ones. I don't care if its an Exploration skin or what-I'd just love to see it put in.

I believe Cryptic isn't going to allow the C-Store T1s to be added as Fleet Ships. The last anyone heard was that CBS didn't want too much continuity contamination - it breaks the IP wall to have a TOS Connie fighting as powerfully as a Sovereign.

As far as the Ambassador, it's coming. Dstahl has stated it's coming on the forum and in a podcast. It might be tied-in with Season 7 and whatever's going on there, though.

I wouldn't mind having the Dauntless class from VOY's "Hope and Fear" and ENT's "Azati Prime".

I'd also like the Tellarite cruiser from ENT, just for some more ships from Federation member species. And, of course, the Andorian Kumari class.

Actually regarding the Ambassador class I believe they were discontinued when the Galaxy was commissioned as it was more of a design step from the excelsior to the galaxy and very few were ever built, however I'm not sure about refits, as we saw with the excelsior when low on ships starfleet has a tendency to refit old ships and bring them back into service temporarily

No, we saw Ambassador class ships in TNG and DS9.

Im with you all the way op, CBS is practically saying, "no we dont want your money, and we dont care how the ip has changed in this hypothetical future."

The Dauntless was NOT a Fed ship. It was an alien ship made over to look Fed so some nut could have what he perceived as revenge and get the Voyager crew assimilated.

Indeed-towards the end of DS9, some of the ships most people thought were galaxy classes were, in fact, Ambassadors. at certain angles the ships look nearly identical, and it was said that at one point the Ambassador numbers were quite substantial.

I've managed to make a "passible" (as in KINDA looks like it) rendition on the Exploration, but as an RPer, sometimes it really just needs an actual ship.

Regarding the CBS part, if the Centaur and Miranda, as well as the Oberth, were introduced so long ago but are still in active service, and the Constitution refit is still in service, I fail to see why the NX-class replica (which states that it is the old design with modern equipment) and the TOS Constitution (which at the very least could be included as an exclusive skin for the Fleet Cruiser) can't be put in.

Speaking of skin packs for ships, does anyone know why the Skin Packs (like the Imperial class) are no longer available on the C-Store, or if they will be returning anytime soon? If they are returning, perhaps the TOS Constitution skin could be put in for Cruisers and Fleet Cruisers who want to try and keep with the continuity.
