The Ambassador's BO is good if you have a Sci toon, with his extra Sci/Universal slot, but beyond that, I advise go with the Excelsior. It's a better ship, and in a PvP you'll likely win (b/c Excelsior is simply superior).
The Ambassador is a "disruption" cruiser. It can roll in and act like most cruisers of the line but can also disrupt enemies well enough with the sci lt.cmdr with stuff like photonic shockwave, jam sensors, GW2 et al to throw enough of a wrench in the enemy to help the other guys out.
Its basically a half step from using a Tac Uni'd Nebula
In that role , its certainly better than the Star Cruiser. Just don't try to make it a heal or dps boat, there are other cruisers better for that.
