Logan no longer works at Cryptic.

The Ambassador has a strange history since it was suggested that it was going to be made. But now that water is once again muddied by the likes of DStahl.

Ah well.

Why? The Ambassador was created by starting with the Galaxy and working backwards. Besides, with the graphics, a smaller ship CAN be made to fit into a larger space. There are several cases in this game where such changes to size are made. Between the up and down swept plyons of the Star Cruiser, the various parts for the Akira/Oslo/Zepher/Thunderchild and the Nova/Quasar/Aurora. The last one the parts can make the ship either very short and squat to long and streamlined to twice the lenght of the short version.

How about as an Excelcisor Variant? I've had an idea about this this week. Ever since the Heavy Escort refit came out I've felt that Tier 3 has been unbalanced. While Refits and Advanced vessels are both +1 in terms of effect, the flavor seamed off to me. The lack of additional parts for the Tier 3 cruiser and science vessel felt off as well.

Now, If we go with the thought that a Refit is not the same as an Advanced ship, it opens the possibility of an Advanced Crusier Refit, especially since the Tier 4 ships have been Refited and Retrofited.

This would be the Ambassador. In terms of appearnce, I think the Ambassador can be broken down into the same pieces as the Excelcisor and with different materials kit bashing would provide more design options.

As a Tier 3 +1 +1, this could push it to a base Tier 4 with a different configuration than the Exploration Cruiser. In terms of ship evolution, it would be better than an Excelcisor and about on par with the Galaxy while still inferior to the modernized Galaxy.

As a costume, it would also be available for the Tier 5 Excelcisor and a player can now reasonably stay in the same ship from Tier 3 onward without much loss.

Yeah, but Excelsior is the tier below Galaxy, which is the tier below Galaxy and Excelsior. There's kind of a uh... a bit of a problem.
