The real reason was actually stated a while back. Basically, Cryptic thought the profile of the Ambassador was too similar to the Galaxy without belonging on the same Tier.

But players want it, so they're tossing it in. I honestly agree with Cryptic on this, though... the Ambassador was kind of an ugly ship. It wasn't really designed to do anything except look like a less-advanced ship than the Galaxy. It did that job really well in Yesterday's Enterprise, but you never actually saw it on the show as much as other ships, like the Miranda or the Excelsior.

I don't understand why people want it, aside from the "Collect 'em all" mentality, which is a poor reason in my opinion.

People want it because it's canon ship and they like it. They can't to fly it. Just like the player who want a T5 Connie. It may not be the biggest nor the best, but they will fly it anyway.

I would say either a Norway-class (to finish off the FC ships) or a New Orleans-class. For the KDF, I would say Birok-class or the Karas-class (from the books).

could also be that the ambassador class are popular for 20 to 40 years with starfleet crews and even in 2409starfleet and people because the ambassador class are the great grandfathe to all starfleet capial starships.

the first ambassador class starships look a little too much like the old consitution class star ships from the first federation klingon cold war'so there was no ambassador class but with early galaxy style necells.

as the 25th century cold starfleet/klingon war keeps going on that the klinongs are starting to want to rebuild outposts at nurenda 3 and camp khitomer. this time new romulus refused for the klinongs to build outposts in both nurenda 3 and camp khitomer and ask for federation's and starfleets aid to keep the klingons out?

mean time the tal sh'yar wanted the klinongs to build outpost at nurenda 3 and camp khitomer but because the strain to both the tal sh'?ar and the klingons that both forces had to wait for resorces tobuild the 2 new outpost. it was til november 2412 invade and build new outpost

all that the romulans and strarfleet could muster up for the first waves of defence of nurenda 3 and camp khitomer was 7 earth starfleet replica early starfleet nx enterprise and 20 romluan 22nd century birds of prey. being out class in fire power and sheilds it was decided that camp khitomer was the priortity to defend.

this is where the retrofited and new ambassador fleet come in to save the day at bothnurenda 3 and camp khitomer in february atarfleet also made a few ambassador class starships with akira saucer though with 2 fighter wings

Everybody knows that it's going to be the Ambassador and the K'vort. We even know what the innate ability for the Ambassador will be - we just don't know for the K'vort.

For the Ambassador, it will have a random chance whenever you do anything of opening a rift and having a group of Romulans appear to blow you up.

So about the K'vort....

When they said free Third Year Anniversary, I was thinking Ambassador as well. But they also said that they wanted it as a free ship during a special Featured Event reward. So if it is the Ambassador, I would really be surprised.

The Andorian ship was said to be still a work-in-progress, so I wouldn't think it could be that.

Out of the Canonical ships (aside from the Ambassador), I don't think there really was any on a high damand list. But could expect something like the Dauntless-class.



But IMHO, the most likely candidate for the Third Anniversary ship could be another DTNE ship. After all, the Odyssey, Regent, Bellephron, and the Chimera were all DTNE or DTNE-inspired ships. And the likely candidate could be Maddon's Entry (which was by far the most popular, and the closest thing to a T5 Consitution).

The FE that rewards the Ambassador could also be part of the 3rd Year Anniversary. In fact, it's very likely what the 3rd Year Anniversary will be centered around.
