To get the Ambassador? I'd do it.

The Ambassador is here at last, for free! All you need to do is play a new featured episode. Which probably means stat-wise, its going to be a crappy ship for end-game but I don't care. My "Ships bearing the name Enterprise" set is going to be complete!
Is the Ambassador going to be VADM only, or can lower-ranking toons get this ship too?

There is a new devblog, that explains this a bit.
You get 2 versions of the ship for doing one FE mission.
One will be T3 and once will be Admiral level.
If you are below Admiral you get a box that can only be opened once leveled up.

Same goes for the new Klingon cruiser.

According to the latest dev blog, we'll get 2 Ambassador ships, a tier 3 Ambassador and a tier 5 Ambassador Retrofit.

Looks like we get both a T3 and a T5 ship. In addition, from the dev blog it looks like the T3 version is a permanent mission - it only says the T5 version is anniversary-only.

Too bad the klink ship is a new design. I was really looking forward to getting a giant BoP.

EDIT: Were we all stalking the STO website waiting for the dev blog?

Ah, thank you. Let's hope, Cryptic sorts out the launcher client problem or many players will be pissed to miss this Chance.

Edit: Mine seems to work again already.
They reported that the problem is fixed earlier today. So there shouldn't be any further launcher issues.
I'll take a look. The launcher on both my desktop and laptop were non-functional the last time I checked.

Thanks.

Yep, I'd like to have the BoP also.

Finally! I can have my Ambassador!

Then... around the corner... A new playable faction perhaps?

The Romulans have always been my favorite aliens in Trek. I'd be all over the chance to fly a Warbird.

If the Romulans get added as a playable faction, that might just push me to play Star Trek Online. Yes!

I could recreate my Romulan Ambassador S'otori and play her as an ally and a villain depending on situation!

The Ambassadors stats areup. Doesn't look like much of a science ship to me.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

It was never going to be a science ship. it is a cruiser. But the LC science station will give it much needed support capabilities.
I am surprised how tactical oriented it still is though. 2 low level tac stations plus 3 tac consoles to boost damage.

I would have preferred if they went full support and switched tac and sci consoles and made the ensign station universal.

The C-Store version will probably come with a universal ensign and a 4,3,3 console setup + special ability console.

The turn rate is a joke compared to the Klingon cruiser.
Does it turn as well as the Excelsior with a base turn of 7?
