Dear Fellow Gamers:

I was wondering how the Ambassador-Class Starship was going to fit into the game. I've heard it is going to be in the game, and it is one of my all time favorite Federation ships. However I don't have a whole lot of money to spend, and I've all ready bought the NCC-1701 Enterprise (Constitution TOS) from the Cryptic Points store. I'm only able to buy one or two more ships from there and so my question is this: Is the Ambassador-Class going to be a C Store ship or Dilithium ship, and what rank/level/type of ship will it be? I realize I'm probably asking questions that have no answers, but I tried the search and didn't find what I was looking for. Any and all info would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Sincerely Yours,
Rear Admiral Ronald Slutz

It was on the plans to be released, but it kept getting pushed back more and more. Now, it's come down to..when it shows up..it shows up.

All we can do is wait for it.

I honestly believe that it will be a C-Store ship. It may also be a dilithium ship at the T3 level. However, I do think that PW/Cryptic will have to release it as a T5 C-Store ship for it to sell well and be worth their investment.

Personally, other than the Miranda Class Light Cruiser, the Ambassador Class is by far one of my favorite hull designs. It is a must on my shopping list for C-Store Federation Ships! I only hope is that it has a versatile Bridge Officer setup.

Probably one every few days until it actually gets released. For good reason too -- the design is associated with one of the best episodes of all Trek.

I'm going to make some guesses here.

It will cost roughly 1600 C-Points.
Most ships at Tier 5 cost this much although there are exception and of these exceptions they all have two Features. The Gal X has a Cloak and a Spinal Lance. The MVAE has a Hybrid BOFF layout and Seperation. The Atrox, it's a Carrier and it's a Carrier (OK Unique Fighters). 1600 Point ships have one Feature. Saucer Seperation, New BOFF layouts, and other such things.

It will be a Tier 5 Ship
While it may or may not fit, there's little point to releasing it as a lower tier ship I am willing to bet more Tier 5 ships have been sold than any other Tier. If it's Tier 5 you can use it at end game and compete. If it's a lower Tier (one would argue it would have made a better Tier 3 than what we got) it would be used for a week or two and than replaced by a bigger better ship.

When? Yeah I'm not that Brave, Season six? But do we expect to see another ship Season five?

All we really know about Ambassador at this point is, Al said it "will" eventually be put in-game. (There's probably 9-12 ships due out before Ambassador), and we know it will be a multi-tiered ship 3,5 (like Excelsior, as mentioned by Al in his recent post). At this point, that's all we know about Ambassador.

Well, if you really want it while waiting you can, to an extent, make one. The size is all wacked out but it comes close. Celestial Saucer and Hull, with Galaxy everything else. Type 4 Material and type 2 windows. About as close as I have gotten to making one.
