So, the Anniversary ship is going to be the Ambassador Class and it's free for doing a mission. What do you guys think it will be? Will it be a RA, VA or Fleet level ship? Will it be will it be more tactical slant like the Excelsior or engineer slant like the Galaxy?

Let the speculations begin.

It's definitely not Fleet-level. Hard to say if it's RALH or VA.

The "tactical slant" you mentioned applies to the Regent, not the Excelsior. The Excelsior has good turn rate and tanking abilities, whereas teh Regent has a more Tactical slant due to the consoles and boff seating.

I don't really care whether the Ambassador has a slant either way. As long as I get the Andrew Probert variant, I'm happy.

What's the Andrew Probert variant? I'm assuming you are referring to the design of the ship. Are there pics?

I'm going to guess/hope (delete as appropriate) that both designs will be available and their parts selectable in the ship customisation screen, so you can create a hybrid.

Well, it SHOULD be an obsolete, relic, representative of a crossover design from the Excelsior class, to the Galaxy class. Useless in every regard save as a museum piece at StarFleet Academy, where cadets could marvel at it's simplicity, and think "Wow, people used to explore, strange, new, worlds, in this thing?" Especially, now that we have timeships from the future in the game.

The true slap was making the Fleet Failcelsior stronger than the Tactical Odyssey and Regent in damage output. However I will laugh my rear off if this ship is better than the FExcel at damage output. Then I will probably quit STO and go back to playing League of Legends.

But I am also seeing a lot of interesting posts that suggest this ship might be a science heavy cruiser. Which I would be intrigued by, even if not interested in ever using it. But if it turns out to be a hybrid destroyer/ escort-cruiser, then I will just laugh and go back to playing League.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder. <--- DR proved me wrong!

My god, that's a sexy beast.

So it'll be on the C-Store, jah?
What is more frightening: to know that the path is infinite, or to walk that path alone?

I don't think Gecko likes the Ambassador either, so I don't expect much from it.
