I think the Ambassador as an Enterprise was a Scientific cruiser in a war time setting. since we don't know to much of what happaend after the B was launched the entire timeframe of the C is only speculation and a few facts. Like fact the Romulans were being *******s to the Klingons after Khitomer Accords were signed. thus. this is my idea for the Ambassador in STO.
Heritage Heavy Cruiser
It should have the Basic Enterprise-C skin as well as the Yamaguchi Design.
4 Fore Weapons
4 Aft Weapons
Bridge Officer Layout.
Lieutenant Commander Science
4 Engineering Console Slots
3 Science Console Slots
2 Tactical Console Slots
I expect it's special console to be something like a big blue tachyon beam that can rip shields for 12 seconds.
When this comes out I expect the Alternate TNG uniform's from the episode "Yesterday's Enterprise" to come out in the Z-Store.
I think secretly Captain Gecko agree's with me.
Well, pretty darned close. Nailed the Boff slots, but sci and tac consoles are the other way around.
They should of given it a Turn rate close to that of the Defiant with Photon Torpedo Bonuses.
Just to make it a unique ship that can go with the ships canon.
I mean Romulan ships were smaller than the Enterprise - C at the time so should of had higher turn rate, but they didnt, the Enterprise did so clearly its a Light Cruiser with Evasives and Phaser arcs in design sight.
ATTENTION:UNDINE SPACE & TKON GROUND SETS ALL THE WAY DEVS!.. Q-TRIBBLE, MAYBE!?.. EJECT WARP CORE ABILITY LIKE LAYING A SUPER-MINE, HELL YES!!!.. SPACE HIPPIES FROM TOS PLAYING MUSIC IN OUR FLEET STARBASE, NO, JUST, NO... CAIT & RA'KHOLN ADVENTURE ZONE, YES
My big confusion on the announces spec's is why does the ship only have two science consoles for a ship that has a Lt. Cmdr. Boff?
Also, why is it that Cryptic doesn't see fit to publish the inertial values with any of the ship specs? Is it 30-35-40? That makes a big difference on telling how the ship will really turn.
Maybe because a lot of people are unhappy with the low DPS of most beam boats right now. Personally, I think it strikes a pretty good balance; you can have a decent fire power, but have to make do with low level abilities, and have a high level sci power, but can't spec into it too hard.
