Notes: The Ambassador could be considered Starfleet's first modern class design. Designed to replace the aging Excelsior
class, and to fulfill an expanded mission role, the Ambassadors were equipped with upgraded scientific and diplomatic resources.
The new role reflected a mission of exploration for Starfleet after the Kithomer accords created peace with the Klingon Empire.
Though no longer needed to defend the frontiers, the Ambassador class was also equipped with upgraded weapons systems to relieve
the outmatched Excelsior class in battle situations. History records that an Ambassador Class starship, the Enterprise-C,
finally cemented relations between the Klingon Empire and the Federation while defending a Klingon outpost against a Romulan
attack, at the cost of the destruction of the Enterprise-C. Today the Ambassador class is limited to service in Starfleet's
military wing surpassed by more advance classes.

U.S.S. Enterprise-C commissioned in the first half of the 24th century at Earth Station McKinley
2344 - U.S.S. Enterprise-C was lost defending a Klingon outpost from a Romulan attack. The loss of the Enterprise eventually lead to a lasting peace between the Klingons and the Federation
2366 - U.S.S. Enterprise-C appeared 22 years in the future after traveling through a time anomaly, creating an alternative time line where the Federation is at war with the Klingons
Early 2370's - The Ambassador class phased out of commission although some ships still remain in serviceInformation
The Ambassador class is outfitted with Type IX phasers, advance for her day, and duranium hull plating over key areas of
the ship. The Ambassador class is also extremely maneuverable for a ship of its size and should always be considered a
threat during combat.
