The Ambassador class marked a transition within Starfleet from the somewhat blocky Excelsior-class, back toward streamlined vessels. The vessel is shaped much like the Constitution-class, but enlarged in dimensions. It is a precursor to the Galaxy-class which would follow it a few decades later.

History

The Ambassador included many new technological advances. Warp propulsion systems were redesigned which would eventually lead to a re-calibration of the TOS-era warp scale, after the first series of refits a newly developed Isolinear Computer system was installed making a huge increase in storage capacity and overall computer ability. Wide use of Replicator systems rather than standard food slots located only in specific areas. The Ambassador also featured the first use of Phaser Strips. In all eleven strips were installed on the vessel allowing a 360 degree field of fire.

The class was the largest ever constructed up to that date, and set new standards for luxury and crew accommodation. Crew members with family were allowed to have them aboard after serving 6 months (depending on ship's role/mission), and cabins were modularized to allow modifications in size.
