So, now that I am still sobbering over the loss of the Chel Grett, I got the ambassador thanks to a friend! :3 How should I equip the ship? o: Currently, I am running all Polaron. Five beams, two of which are in the back along with one turret, and a chroniton mine launcher. Three beams forward, 1 quantum forward. I have three Polaron damage enhancers (forgot what they're called!!!), and something that gives my torpedo +11 damage. ! What can help make the Ambassador Class turn better, btw? My engine gives +7 to turn, yet it does little.
On a side note, since I was 8yrs old, watching TNG with my dad, I always wanted an ambassador class. Finally, years after watching the USS Enterprise C kill herself, I finally have it! (Too bad all those super enhanced weapons on the Enterprise C during the mission, didn't come with us. Q_Q!)
I'm using 6 beams the breen cluster torp and the bio warhead
In no way is it optimal but it's fun for pve(I have serious builds)
I too am a massive fan of the ship along with the galaxy class however I find this ship to be really good it can tank it can lay down damage and it moves a shade load better too( than the galaxy)
Would be interesting to see some optimal builds in preparation for the fleet version as I'm a little rusty with cruiser ways

I'm also using conn officers to take TT1 down to global, and have doffs for the torp attacks so it fires more often. It's a strong enough healer, but will be better once I've gotten some other bits of kit on there. I may ditch the photons, but as a healer I'm not doing much damage anyhow, and it's good to have kinetic on hand for stuff like unshielded STF borg lumps, or aceton assimilators in PVP. Having no torp powers, photons give me the best DPS, especially with the doffs I have.
Anyone else wondering how the heck a ship closer in size to the Galaxy class than the Excelsior class it replaced has 50 FEWER crew than the old Excelsior?
Either they're packed in like sardines in the old Excelsior, or Ambassadors must feel like ghost ships outside of the Bridge and engineering.
