This one is going to be sold at the Romulan embassy.
There were hints from the devs that they got away with the Enterprise-C and/or other ships at Narendra that the Klingons missed. I betcha there are also D5s leftover from when the Klingons controlled the area in Archer's day too.
The FEs aren't coming in S7 but the ships are. Which means they should be tied to something we already know about.
I bet the Romulans took the stolen Ambassadors and D5s and started rebuilding them with 25th century tech... and that as negotiations open up, they'll offer the upgraded ships back to us for dilithium at a high tier embassy.
4 Fleet Modules, 20k dilithium. Outfitted with Romulan upgrades.
Ships? Did I miss something? If there are supposed to be ships I hope for a D'deridex!
This would seem like an ideal opportunity to finally release it, given that the Ambassador Class was first introduced in an episode that involved it defending the Klingon outpost on Khitomer (which I believe is included in the new sector block) against the Romulans. Also, they're pushing the Fleet Embassy (bit of a long shot, but come on, Embassy, Ambassador... ) and we know the Enterprise C was salvaged by the Romulans and put on display, so it wouldn't be entirely impossible to encounter a replica (the original I believe was on Romulus, and so vaporised).
Fleet Embassies will be here in S7, projects are already live for it on tribble.
With Season 7 arriving in pieces on Tribble (first group missions/"Into the Hive" ground STF, then Vesta-ship testing, now Reputation system, then the mention of a space STF companion to "Into the Hive" that even BranFlakes didn't know about), there is still a chance the Ambassador could be part of Season 7.
I seem to recall it being mentioned that the Ambassador was going to be tied into the Romulan storyline (I'm still scanning the old Ambassador/Romulan threads for this). If so, then we should get hints of the Ambassador when the sector block is finally up for testing along with the new Obisek content (Kestrel on her twitter mentioned recording sessions with Obisek's voice actor about a month ago).
So hang tight there my fellow cruiser captains!

It will be attached to a Featured Mission which there will not be any new ones until season 8. So probably Feb or March 2013.
Was my previous posting read?....I'll re-post it below, which answers this question from the actual Stahl interview.
Priority One Episode # 97 at 40:12into the interview addresses this (in great detail).
Stahl actually said the Ambassador could arrive as early as the holidays/game anniversary (Dec/Jan/Feb) time frame at 41:50 into the interview, but he's trying to maneuver employees to the tasks of working on different projects.
So Ambassador Class anytime from December 2012 to the gap between Season 7, but before Season 8.
It would probably make a nice Christmas gift to the players who have patiently waited year(s) for it.
It is possible, that the Ambassador will show up on the Tribble server at some point, as a teaser, or perhaps as a cameo appearance in a mission, before it is actually offered to players.
