Overview[edit | edit source]

Starfleet upgraded this vessel with the latest standard equipment used in the early 25th century.

Class variants

Class Information

Excelsior class
SKIN UNLOCK: Free
The Excelsior class was a popular and reliable Starfleet ship used for almost a century. The first ship, the namesake U.S.S. Excelsior, was constructed in the 2280s and designed originally for a prototype of a Transwarp Drive (as seen in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock). Despite the failure of the drive, Starfleet recommissioned the Excelsior with a standard warp drive, and began producing more Excelsior-class ships to replace the aging Constitution class. The Excelsior class proved to be a reliable and versatile design, having participated in the Battle of Wolf 359 and the Dominion War, and is still in active service alongside much newer ships as of the 25th century.

You may also choose to have the nacelles permanently lit by selecting the "Excelsior Alpha" nacelles type in the ship tailor.

Similar to the Constitution class, the Excelsior class underwent a major refit program in 2290, adding additional impulse engines, modifications to the warp nacelles, and an expansion of the engineering hull. The Excelsior refit was made popular by vessels such as the USS Enterprise-B as seen in Star Trek: Generations, and the USS Lakota as seen in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

The Refit pieces are known as "Excelsior Retrofit" in the ship tailor. You may also choose to have the nacelles permanently lit by selecting the "Excelsior Retrofit Alpha" nacelles type.

The original configuration of the Excelsior class, as it appeared in The Search for Spock, was a little different from its subsequent appearances. This Excelsior NX variant represents the original NX-2000 transwarp experiment version of the starship.

These saucer and hull ship pieces are named "Excelsior NX" in the ship tailor.

The Resolute class was inspired by the classic design of the Excelsior class. This modified Advanced Heavy Cruiser has been completely updated to the latest standards of Starfleet Engineering Corps.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike the tier 3 Advanced Heavy Cruiser, this vessel's transwarp ability is innate and not provided by a console.
  • The fleet version of this ship was released with a patch released on the 30th of November 2012.
  • The Excelsior-class models were revamped on 18 July, 2018, to be more faithful to the ships appearances in the various Star Trek movies and television shows.
  • The ability to transwarp to some of the additional was previously part of the [Console - Universal - Advanced Transwarp Drive Coil], an item the Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit used to come with, but this item is no longer available. The transwarp abilities were integrated into the ship itself, as well as its Fleet and Tier 6 versions, and the other attributes moved to the [Console - Universal - Transwarp Computer] on the Tier 3 Advanced Heavy Cruiser.
