Overview[edit | edit source]

The Tier 6 Fleet Advanced Heavy Cruiser is an advanced version of the Excelsior class Advanced Heavy Cruiser. The Fleet Advanced Heavy Cruiser (T6) has been specifically designed to support your Fleet. Fleet Starships are built to the highest standard and have increased Hull Hit Points, Shield Strength, and an additional Console slot.

The Advanced Heavy Cruiser (T6) bridges the gap from Battle Cruisers into Cruisers, offering good maneuverability and small ship profile in a more survivable package. Its extensive engineering department allows for excellent armor and shield hardening potential when drawing-in and absorbing enemy fire, but the decent tactical and small science departments drops this ship to more of a fire-support role when attacking.

The Advanced Heavy Cruiser (T6) finds an easy place in a team as a fast-responding tank, being able to maneuver quickly to cover a damaged teammate, while providing good supporting-fire to clear the area of "smaller" threats, so the team can focus their primary striking-power and debuffs on a "larger" threat.

Class Information
Federation Advanced Heavy Cruiser Retrofit (Excelsior class).png
Excelsior-class
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, and is still in active service alongside much newer ships. The Excelsior-class participated in the Dominion War and the Battle of Wolf 359.

The Excelsior-class, similar to the Constitution-class, underwent a major refit program, adding additional impulse engines, modifications to the warp nacelles, and the expansion of the engineering hull. These modifications are available in Ship Customization.

Excelsior-class (refit)
The Excelsior class was refitted in 2290 with larger engines and an extended engineering section. 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 Tier 6 Resolute Class Advanced Heavy Cruiser was inspired by the classic design of the Excelsior Class Advanced Heavy Cruiser. This modified Advanced Heavy Cruiser has been completely updated to the latest standards of Starfleet Engineering Corps.
