I agree, they do LOOK like Ambassador nacelles from that angle. but unfortunately there is no cgi Ambassador.

Actually, lets hear what you have to say about why Prometheus is an Intrepid variant...

I'm 100% sure that is an Excelsior. Look in the Encyclopedia, for God's sake!
As for the Prometheus, you could argue it, but it wouldn't be right. So there.

That is in no way an Ambassador-class starship. It may look like one to Jack Crusher, but it is NOT one.

I'm actually going for it being a Galaxy. About the height of the nacelles, you're assuming they are the front of Excelsior nacelles. What about if they're the back of Galaxy nacelles, just peaking out from beneath the saucer due to the angle of the shot?

Yes, you're despicable, and... and picable... and... and you're definitely, definitely despicable. How a person can get so despicable in one lifetime is beyond me. It isn't as though I haven't met a lot of people. Goodness knows it isn't that. It isn't just that... it isn't... it's... it's despicable.

THAT STARSHIP IS AN EXCELSIOR CLASS VESSEL! NOT A GALAXY, AMBASSADOR, OR ANY OTHER SHIP! CAN'T YOU SEE?

Are you guys talking about #3? If you are, then you're all delusional. How can there even be a debate about this? The thing's in PROFILE for God's sake! I thought Jack_Crusher was just joking.

LOOK at the thing for God's sake!

Yes, that's an Excelsior. I (and Jack, I think), was talking about "Excelsior 4" on Reverend's pic.

BTW, in this day and age of CGI ships, doesn't the Galaxy trio (1, 2 and 3) look suspiciously cut and pasted? Lazy monkeys.

Maybe Jack can clarify for us. He's already said that "Excelsior three is definately an Ambassador class," and he's also sworn to God that it is one.
Now, unless Jack doesn't know what the numbers "3" and "4" look like, I'd say he was talking about the ship Mim enlarged.

Jack obviously suffers either from number blindness, or starship design blindness. Which is more dangerous in todays fast-paced consumer society?

well my (so not professional) opinion is that is an Excelsior, i believe its being seen from a frontal angle. Well there's also some kind of raised bubble at the front of the nacelle near the bussard collectors are (if they have them on the excelsior) kinda like the ones on the Ent-B/Lakota nacelles. Of course i probably have no idea what i'm talking about as well.
Or maybe *Sh ck H rr r* its a background 'actor' who also appeard in some DS9 fleet scene, and is a Excelsior/Ambassador hybrid. (i'll probly get smacked for even thinking of such herecy )
