The Fleet Excelsior-class Advanced Heavy Cruiser is a Tier 6 Cruiser which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. This starship can be used from any level upon completion of the tutorial experience. As you level up, this ship gains additional hull, weapon slots, and console slots.

Players can obtain this starship from any Ship and Shuttle Requisitions officer for 20,000 Fleet Credits and 5 Fleet Ship Module icon.png, so long as the player's Fleet has a Tier III Shipyard and one Starbase Military Fleet Ship Provision. If the player already owns the Resolute Advanced Heavy Cruiser from the Zen Store, the Fleet Ship Module cost is reduced to 1.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Fleet Excelsior-class Advanced Heavy Cruiser 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 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.

The Fleet Excelsior-class Advanced Heavy Cruiser 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.

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.

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

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 Advanced Heavy Cruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
