Four episodes of TNG (two of which were only debris), and one of DS9. Interestingly, of the ones seen on screen, nearly all were doomed.

Enterprise-C was damaged and going into battle where it would be destroyed.
The one in Conspiracy was already destroyed.
The one in Best of Both Worlds and Emissary was destroyed at Wolf 359.

Only the one in Data's Day escaped unscathed, giving the ship an overall worse survival record than the Oberth.



My one hope for it is that they do something different. The veteran destroyers stretched the distinctions between ship classes, and the Breen and Jem'hadar ships broke them entirely. That opens up a lot of new niches that would have been assumed impossible before, and with traditional cruiser ranks are pretty cluttered, the Ambassador's best place to find use is to take one.

#1: @virusdancer. - you should not have stopped taking your meds without checking with your doc first.

#2: S5:E1 "Redemption Part II". The U.S.S. Excalibur NCC-26517 was also an Ambassador Class. Temporarily commanded by Riker during the blokade of the Duras sisters.

That was also Mackenzie Calhoun's ship, as I recall.

Yup, an Ambassador class is the star of her own novel series.
*looks at the Vesta* and people say the Ambassador class doesn't appear in stuff often enough

I would also like to make the point that many Ambassador Class ships were never confirmed as destroyed, (or seen on-screen as destroyed), as they are it simply "text" on some websites as *destroyed*, (often with no explanation)...which leaves the door open to "conjecture".

On the contrary, the Enterprise flies through the debris field of the Horatio (which they show). Kind of hard to go from ship to cloud of wrecked parts without being destroyed, no?

Very true. Although, I meant the U.S.S. Excalibur NCC-26517 specifically.
