Ambassador

See also: Ambassador on Memory Alpha, Ambassador on Wikipedia.

An Ambassador holds a title more than a mere billet. Recognized by the United Federation of Planets Council as someone with the credential to act as its representative in the face of other cultures, s/he is sanctioned with the task of carrying out the interests of the Federation through the act of Diplomacy. Ambassadors are often stationed on foreign/alien worlds or facilities, to be closely in contact with that particular Government. However, they can be assigned, usually temporary, aboard a Starfleet vessel/base.

Ambassadors are usually retired and highly experienced Starfleet personnel, and therefore very rarely hold any active rank in Starfleet, even though there is no specific restriction against this case. Due to the nature of the role, the title can be assigned temporarily by the Federation Council to any chosen high ranking officer, if the need for an official sanctioning of a political act or a form of treaty should arise where no other Diplomatic envoy is present.
