Class Information

Purchasing the Legendary Ambassador Intel Support Cruiser for 25,000   unlocks all existing ship variants.
 
Ambassador class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free

Developed at the San Francisco Fleet Yards, the most iconic Ambassador-class starship to be commissioned by Starfleet was the U.S.S. Enterprise-C, destroyed in battle in 2344 while protecting the Klingon colony on Narendra III from a Romulan attack. All hands were presumed to be killed in action, the valorous sacrifice bringing the Federation several decades of peace with the Klingon Empire.

 
Yamaguchi class
SKIN UNLOCK: T5 Fleet Yamaguchi Support Cruiser Retrofit, 20,000  , 4  
OR T6 Fleet Yamaguchi Support Cruiser, 20,000  , 5  

The Yamaguchi variant of the Ambassador-class cruiser saw service in the Battle of Wolf 359 and was utilized throughout the Dominion War. Visual differences include lower, differently shaped warp nacelle pylons, "capped" Bussard collectors on its warp nacelles, as well as alterations to the vessels' neck and saucer section.
 
Narendra class
SKIN UNLOCK: Narendra Support Cruiser, 3,000  
This pathfinding design, overseen by Captain A. Probert in 2319, was revolutionary but deemed “ahead of its time.” Its fluid hull forms pioneered spaceframe advancements later implemented in the Galaxy-class starship, but material, power and logistical problems all manifested simultaneously, requiring a massive redesign to subsequent vessels of the class.

This variant faithfully represents the look of the original Andrew Probert-created concept for the Ambassador-class.

 
Narendra class
Beta
SKIN UNLOCK: Narendra Support Cruiser, 3,000  
Despite being labelled "Beta" this is the default look for the Narendra-class, in 25th century livery. These Beta parts are the original release parts for the Narendra, which "interact with existing materials differently" and have been preserved for use.
 
Horatio class
SKIN UNLOCK: Legendary Ambassador Intel Support Cruiser, 25,000  
Recent efforts to revitalize an old set of plans for the Ambassador class yielded the Narendra-class Support cruiser. While the Narendra performed well during its initial deployment, the Advanced Starship Development Board felt the design’s use of early-24th Century assumptions put it at a bit of a disadvantage compared to newer cruisers. Starfleet still desperately needed more medium-sized units to backfill its long-range exploration and support needs, and a medium-tonnage cruiser meant more ships could be built and crewed faster.

Starfleet engineers took the lessons learned from the Narendra and iterated on them in a new cruiser design, the U.S.S. Horatio. The Horatio is a very flexible long-range exploration and support platform meant to fill the gap of mid-size units that Starfleet needs to fulfill its various mandates inside Federation territory and beyond.
