The Ambuscade was an Intruder-class DropShip owned and operated until at least 3067 by the mercenary unit known as The Medusans. The Ambuscade and her sister ship, the Exeter, formed the Second Division of Hydra Assault Squadron, serving under the commanding officer of the Second Division, Captain Isabella Parry.
When the Medusans attempted to defend New Syrtis from a Capellan strike force in 3069, the Ambuscade was one of the ships involved in launching a deep space ambush against the Capellans. While the Medusans managed to destroy a Leopard and a Triumph and damaged a number of other Capellan DropShips, the mercenaries took damage in turn from the Capellan forces led by the Impavido class WarShip CCS Zhejiang, which was escorting the strike force. Unfortunately for the Medusans, the Ambuscade was torn apart by the Zhejiang.
