Welcome to the USS Excelsior!


The USS Excelsior holds a proud place throughout history. Originally dubbed the Great Experiment and commanded by one Hikaru Sulu. In Latin, Excelsior means ‘Ever Upward‘. and the crews of all Excelsior’s have always striven to go ‘Ever Upward’.

Throughout its time, each Excelsior has been a Ship of the Line, starting with the Original Excelsior Class vessel all the way through to the Excelsior-D, now an Excalibur Class Starship.

In recent history, the Excelsior-C held a proud place in the history of The Federation. The Excelsior-C served in 2384 during the Battle of Union. Subsequently, the Excelsior was the first Federation Starship to discover The Round Table. Some months after, the Excelsior completed the first of many successful exploration missions throughout that sector.

The Excelsior participated in the Battle for Starbase 900. At the start of the battle, Starfleet Command ordered the destruction of the Federation Transwarp Gateway. The Excelsior carried out their orders much to the dismay of the survivors. The Excelsior-C was too badly damaged to be repaired. An Excalibur Class in dock at Diogara Station, having been recovered and is rechristened, USS Excelsior-D.

Whilst the new Excalibur Class, Excelsior isn't brand new, it had underwent a complete refit and overhaul prior to being rechristened, it is filled with the latest technologies and the formidable reputation that the name Excelsior carries, the Excelsior is going to renew and confirm her reputation and ensure that the presence of Starfleet is felt in Task Force 36's new and old area's of operations.
