The Fleet Excelsior-class Advanced Heavy Cruiser is a Vice Admiral (Tier 6) level Heavy Cruiser. Players can obtain the vessel through the Shipyard for 20,000 Fleet Credits and 5 Fleet Ship Module icon.png, as long as the player's Fleet has a Tier III shipyard. Purchasing the Advanced Heavy Cruiser (T6) in the C-Store discounts the price to 20,000 Fleet Credits and only 1 Fleet Ship Module icon.png.

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
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.

Standard Configuration[edit | edit source]

Federation starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.

Scaling starship[edit source]

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment slots[edit source]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, and science console slots will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Level Console tac icon.png Console eng icon.png Console sci icon.png Fore weapons Aft weapons
0-9 2 3 0 2 2
10-19 2 3 1 3 2
20-29 3 4 1 3 3
30-39 3 4 2 4 4
40+ 4 5 2

Hull strength[edit source]

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.43 for the Fleet Excelsior-class Advanced Heavy Cruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
