I don't even really care about this ship, but I will probably get it since it's practically free.

That's ok, no one else did either. It was in, what?, one episode of TNG? It is a pretty slick design though, IMO.

Lets speculate

It (at least the VA version) will be a fed light battlecruiser.

4x weapons fore & aft
4 device
35k hull
Shild: x1.0
9 or 10 Turn
3 or 4 eng
3 or 2 sci
4 tac

Special Console: Jump a few decades forward in time for repair and upgrades

Have no interest in this ship as it will probably br more a tactical or eng ship and mu character is primarilly science however if the KDF have the alt ship then possibly will use that

It will be interesting to see what its layout will in fact become. I have never liked the Enterprise-C's design, so I am hoping, if it's VA level, the officer layout isn't to my liking. But I also won't be surprised if a "better" version pops up in the store.

Klingson side it's like the love-child / missing link between a Vor'cha and D7, so that's kind of neat.

This will require the sacrifice of one of your other ship's bridge officers.

I am hoping that it will be. As a primary Sci user, Eng and Tact layouts are of no use to me and the Ambassador is my favorite Canon design.

It's still the C-Store. </pedant>


I'm not fussed either way. If it's a T3 ship then fair enough - I'll maybe bring it out when I want to play VA content at a higher difficulty. If it's T5 then I'll have a think about whether any of my characters would be more effective with it.

Even if I don't use it, it'll still be something I didn't pay for so no loss there, right?



I just hope we get it added to the list of ships usable in Fed mob groups for KDF players. Same with the Klingon ship.

I don't care about another cruiser. Free or not. There is already plenty of them and I play none. However, I'll play the mission, and I hope I'll enjoy it, you know, for the mission by itself and not the reward.
That would be the exact opposite of the winterland, where I found the event to be a endless and annoying grind, but wanted the rewards.

Ambassador...schmambassador. All the cool kids will be flying the Kamarag, singing as they fly through sector space:

I know you like mine (I know you like mine)
I know you do (I know you do)
That's why whenever I come around you run away
And I know you want it (I know you want it)
It's easy to see (it's easy to see)
And in the back of your mind
I know you want the Kamarag

Don't cha wish your starship was hot like mine
Don't cha wish your starship was a freak like mine
Don't cha, don't cha
Don't cha wish your starship was raw like mine
Don't cha wish your starship was fun like mine
Don't cha, don't cha

Give into the feeling (give into the feeling)
Cause you're not alone (cause you're not alone)
And you know it's love
More than enough to leave the Federation
So join us friend (so join us friend)
You don't have to play fair (you don't have to play fair)
Still, we don't care
Cause you can't get a Kamarag over there

Don't cha wish your starship was hot like mine
Don't cha wish your starship was a freak like mine
Don't cha, don't cha
Don't cha wish your starship was raw like mine
Don't cha wish your starship was fun like mine
Don't cha, don't cha

I know it's on your mind
I know you'd have a good time
I'm your friend
It's fun
And it's fine
I ain't lying
Look at it, you ain't blind

I know it's on your mind
I know you'd have a good time
I'm your friend
It's fun
And it's fine
I ain't lying
Look at it, you ain't blind

The Ambassador, I know you love it (I know you love it)
I understand (I understand)
I'd probably be just as crazy about it
If I were in Starfleet
Maybe next reroll (maybe next reroll)
Until then, oh friend your secret is safe with me

Don't cha wish your starship was hot like mine
Don't cha wish your starship was a freak like mine
Don't cha, don't cha
Don't cha wish your starship was raw like mine
Don't cha wish your starship was fun like mine
Don't cha, don't cha

Don't forget, there have been talks about Tier 3 and Tier 5 variants. We'll probably get some kind of Tier 5 variant for free, while Tier 3 (with a special console) is going to hit the C-Store for 1000 Zen (similar to Nebula and Excelsior), with a Fleet Refit following soon after.

Also, don't get your hopes up. The free ship is surely going to be a generic cruiser with 9 console slots and uninteresting stats. I also bet it's going to be science focused (with Galaxy being eng-focused and Excelsior/Sovereign being tac-focused, there's a gap to be filled).

Same goes for the KDF equivalent.
