I'm going to make a bet that they are going to skip the C-store and make a fleet version and it will have a skin based off the original concept design.

A HUGE thank you to Cryptic for the Mogh-class battle cruiser!

I'd be VERY surprised if they weren't, considering some of the god-awful kitbash ships (often referred to as the Frankenstein fleet) that we saw, numerous times, during various Dominion war DS9 episodes!

If Starfleet were so desperate for ships that they were fielding junk like the Frankenstein fleet I really can't see how they could NOT use proven designs, regardless of their age(s). So far as I am concerned, this was one of those 'suspension of disbelief' moments, and not seeing the likes of the Ambassador class, Constellation class etc didn't mean that they weren't there.

Heck, we didn't see any Sovereign class ships either......

Finally found a thread about the Ambassador.
Let me say this from the beginning, i hate it's BOFF layout. It's just as lame as the Galaxy Class BO layout. If Cryptic really hates TNG ships that much, then they should just stop introducing them. Flying such a ship is just a pain and plain boring.

Good day.

considering that Connie, Excel, Oberth, and Miranda are older and still in service the Ambassador is not dated in comparison

I guess we just have to hope against hope that there are 3 versions in the C-store so there would be a difference in BOFF layout. I agree, the BOFF layout leaves much to be desired.

I am just wondering why the ship has a LTC science station but only has two science consoles. The Boff seating says its a Sci cruiser but the console setup says its a tac cruiser.

Thank You Cryptic! Awarding the new ships as both Tier 3 and 5 versions in one event is perhaps the most Briliant move to make! I sorely miss the T3 Excelsior (once puchaseable by energy credits) so a new ship for Commanders is a most welcome addition to the fleet! I'm gonna be busy, grabbing these for all my characters but it is clearly worth it! Thank You again Cryptic team!

I think the visual design is excellent. I saw a small model of Enterprise-C with blue trim. So I used the veteran hull and add blue Orion style pattern. Most of my ships have red patterns. It is not the best ship obviously but I love it. Usually in PvE matches I charge head first at Borg ships and take damage. Which being a tax officer and not tanking can be aggravating and costly. I thought owning enterprise a through e would be great. And it is. I was very careful with my attack on my first mission with the ambassador. I used the Borg space set an r s accelerator and spiral wave disrupters. It did great. Almost got caught up by orions in fed fleet alert but the ship took a pounding and repairs were quick. I was cautious with this ship and it paid off. Can't wait to get home and do some more stf and fleet mark runs.
