Here's the reason the Ambassador has a great "feeling" turn rate. it has a turn of 7 with an inertia of 40. By comparison the Oddy has a 6/20, the galaxy a 6/25, the regent a 7/30 and the excel an 8/40

That's why the ambassador feels nimble... it's the inertia. I think the problems with the turn on the oddy and galaxy would be best served by raised their inertia by at least 10 while keeping the turn they already have. And raising the regent by 5.
Formerly known as Protector from June 2008 to June 20, 2012

If the KDF can get a Fleet D7 (That can be upgraded to a T5-U), the Feds should have a Fleet Exeter.
