10 Type-IX Phaser Arrays
The Ambassador Class was developed during the 2320's as a replacement for the aging Excelsior Class as Starfleet's front-line explorer type vessel. Several innovative features were included in the design, most notably for diplomatic and scientific missions. The USS Ambassador included high quality guest quarters and was equipped with elaborate conference facilities. Many of these areas were capable of maintaining a wide range of environments, a vital prerequisite for a vessel which would spend a great deal of its life dealing with non-standard life forms. These facilities allowed her to host a much wider range of diplomatic functions than the more cramped Excelsior Class.
