The USS Yamaguchi was an Ambassador class Federation starship which served for some 60 years before being destroyed by the Borg at the Battle of Wolf 359.

There was only ever one studio model of Ambassador class. Originally constructed to depict the USS Enterprise C in TNG: 'Yesterday's Enterprise', the studio model then
went through an overhaul and a few facelifts to represent 3 other ships; the Zhukov, Excalibur and finally Yamaguchi. In the model's final role as the Yamaguchi, she bore
reg numbers and names of both the Excalibur and the Yamaguchi due to the rushed production of her final screen appearance in DS9: 'Emissary'.

My favourite of the Enterprises, shame it was only really in one episode :/ very good model but IMO I think it needs a good aztec pastern texture to make it epic win ;)

The production model never had aztec, due to the rushed nature of it's production, so technically it's correct without.
But yeah, lots of people have suggested that.

I always preferred the Enterprise C. Something about the Enterprise D... the saucer is just way too big. ;)

Nice model. It's better than the one they have for the Ambassador Class in Star Trek Bridge Commander. I can also see where Paramount got some of the inspiration for the new (2009) Enterprise from.
