History[edit | edit source]

The Ambassador experienced its first test-bed trials at Helaspont Station near Tzenkethi space in 2319[2], supervised by Starfleet Admirals Los Tirasol Mentir and John Harriman, ostensibly as an intimidation-tactic against the volatile Tzenkethi Coalition. (ST - The Lost Era novel: One Constant Star, ST video game: Starship Creator) During its field trials, the Ambassador visited an unidentified planetary system. (ST calendar: Ships of the Line 2012)

In 2333, the Ambassador carried the registry NX-10521 and was a testbed for new technologies while it was operating out of Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. (STA novel: Enigma; TNG reference: Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual) The Ambassador was later given operational status with the NCC registry number. (ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia)

As part of Federation Starfleet operations in the Trexelian Expanse around stardate 73XX.6, the USS Ambassador participated in the war games conducted by Starfleet and allied vessels from the 23rd and 24th centuries. (ST video game: Trexels mission: "Skirmish")

The Ambassador also saw action in conflicts with the Klingon Empire, Cardassian Union and Breen Confederacy. (ST video game: Trexels missions: "Events", "Breen Barrier")
