Ambassador class

Does anyone know what the MSD looks like? Or do they have a cutaway? There is so little information about this ship, I want to find out more...

Re: Ambassador class

I kinda dig how Jackill's forward torpedo tube is in the primary hull superstructure and sorta then gels with FJ's TOS weapons placements somewhat.

Re: Ambassador class

Wow, Joe, that's spiffy. I thought I had seen all of yours now but that's a new one to me.

Re: Ambassador class

24 decks from Joe's MSD seems like too few for a 526m long ship; likewise the 40-odd decks from the Jackill link seems too many. Per Ex Astris Scientia, there are 30-some countable window rows.

Re: Ambassador class

I didn't even blink at Jackill or Joe's deck count but now that you mention it they're both seeming rather odd.

LCARS, the fantail is right for the C, but they modified that fantail and other details for subsequent appearances of the model as other ships. I remember reading comments to indicate that those were refits in the Trekverse and the 'C' represented more or less the original Ambassador design.

Re: Ambassador class

You're right, Praetor. Sorry. I did some more research and came back and deleted my post. I knew that a year ago but had forgotten.

And SicOne sold me on the idea of updating the deck count, which I did. And Jackill's version, with more decks than the Galaxy class, was a bit surprising to me the first time I saw it.

For now, I've got it like this, which seems reasonable, although I noticed my saucer rims are slightly off, even though I reversed and pasted the aft one after drawing the forward one (but probably later modified it when trying different ways of showing the Bussard collector while clarifying how the impulse engines fit in there).

Re: Ambassador class

From a design point of view, I would be more then happy to have my msd go against any other MSD. But If I could do it again, with the correct information...I would go 30-31 decks.

Re: Ambassador class

Joe, how would you figure the deck count if you could do the MSD all over again now?
