Without trying to sound like a broken record, I am still boggled by the institutional pushback on the part of cryptic for deploying an Ambassador starship model. I understand that they wanted to deploy distinct models first, but this forced them to become slaves to their already limiting starship tier-model.
It's no secret that their current lead designer, Jam Jamz has little love for the Amby. I'm sure he'd
do a Bret job with it ( even though the Galor phaser array is STILL inaccurate graphically...)

Ian doesn't decide what ships get built for the game. The order comes down from the bosses. Ian is just told when to have it done and what changes to make along the way. The decision is made somewhere between DStahl and Gecko - and that's where the holdup is. If DStahl said "go" an Ambassador would be in the game in a month.
