This picture demonstrates my stance about the Sovereign very well; It is very tiny and would not have the power output of the 2 ships next to it. The Galaxy should just be better in almost every way.

It goes to mention, just *how* an Ambassador has less crew than an Excelsior??

My appologies for that. It should be corrected now.
The second picture is especially gorgeous... Well done!

Higher automation. Think about how big a Galaxy is and why it only has 250 more crew than an Excelsior.

The Galaxy is bigger, but the Sovereign is more advanced.

Everyone post your epic Ambassador screens here!!


PS: I'm in the wells I will have the Ambassador tonight =)


HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!
It's not epic unless it's HD

Nice work on this though (I'm assuming it's your work) it's a beautiful ship and a faithful model.

Newer galaxies would not be constructed with older technology. There IS a Galaxy retrofit.

Bigger doesn't necessarily mean better when it comes to technology, but also I wouldn't really look at STO as a "realistic" portrayal of what these ships would really be like in-universe in 2409.

But personally I think the STO version of the soverign is far too small. It just doesn't look right. If you look at something like this: http://www.st-minutiae.com/misc/comp...son_medium.png it looks heftier compared to the Galaxy there than it does in STO.

I guess I'll go ahead and post the screenshot of one of my character's Ambassador ships.

Assuming equivalent technology (which is a valid assumption in the case of refitting and retrofitting), the thing with more space for more equipment and more power generation is more powerful.

It isn't. Length is only one dimension. You must also consider height and width. The Sovereign is *small*.
