But the Enterprise-C crews' uniforms didn't change. Only the Ent-D crews' did.
And how could we tell?
And the Enterprise-C has Okudagram displays which state the vessel as Ambassador class.
Yet she is the only ship of that design to feature such displays - and comes from the parallel timeline...
It's an unlikely thing that the Ambassador
classes in the two timelines would look different - Probert in "ours", Sternbach in "theirs" - but not an utterly impossible one. There's flip-flopping of class names there anyway: in this very episode, the big Klingon BoP is the K'Vort
class, yet in "Rascals" it is the B'Rel
class and the name K'Vort
is Okudagram-associated with a smaller design from DS9.
Personally, I'm all against Probert's design being the one for the E-C, but I have nothing against it being the definite Ambassador
of which the Horatio
would be the only known onscreen (if posthumous) representative...
...Except that it's a bit too complicated even to my tastes!
