With the eventual C-store release being more closer to what Cryptic (and hopefully the playerbase) images the Ambassador being. Like they did with the Odyssey-class.
I agree. The "free" version will probably be comparable to the Tier 5 Dilithium ships (i.e. lacking the 10th console, special ability, and with slightly weaker stats all around), while the C-store version will be the premium one.
How many Starfleet Engineers does it take to exchange an Anti-positronic Photon Emitter?

I'm perfectly fine with the Ambassador coming as default without the torpedo launcher being more obvious. As long as both the free and C-store variant come with more that one material type from which to choose. If a type can offer variant deflector dishes than why not offer one which includes the aft and forward torpedo launchers in the spirit in which the original designer intended. Even if the canon model was finished without them.

I felt similarly with regard to the Nebula-class science ship. Despite the default design offering shielded impulse engines, I still want a material type to offer red illumination anyway.

I hope that we'll be able to access the Yamaguchi style parts as well. It's that later refit that really says "Ambassador Class" to me.

Brandon =/\=
i was thinking too that it looked a bit plain and checked pictures of it for escape pods, could not find any

//edit: and now i see this:

but they were not on the 1701-C


a torp launcher should be there, that is a detail that just wasn't needed for the TV episode (the ship was never firing), but they said they had torpedo launchers! And in STO of course we need weapon hard points, i think even CBS told you so. (just no more "pimples" plz)

The ugliest of all Enterprise ships...

...but a welcome addition. Finally the family is complete. If only we could get the Probert version as well.

I love the detail on the skin. It looks amazing, can't wait to fly her. Also can't wait to here the voice over work that Denice Crosby is doing.

Thanks for the clarification. Props to Adam Gibson then. What a cool looking ship. Makes the Whaleaxy Class look like a barge (No offense to Enterprise-D lovers but, I prefer the ambassador class).

Truly the Enterprise C (Ambassador class) is a ship of beauty. I am very excited by this screenshot. Great work to all those involved in bringing it to life in Star Trek Online. I look forward to its launch.

The ambo is one of my favourite boats fed side, but there is something that I find bizarre. There are a number of amazing models of ships made for other star trek games such as bridge commander which I'm sure could have been used.

People on BC-Central spend a lot of time researching so that they might build accurate ship models. More than a few people of that forum are players of STO and I'm sure many of them wouldn't mind seeing their models in this game. To be quite honest, many of the cryptic designed barges are rather...ugly to say the least.

I'm really looking forward to flying this ambassador, one way or another!
There was a sig here, but I gave up. Thanks {REDACTED}
