The Legendary Excelsior Miracle Worker Heavy Cruiser

By Ambassador Kael | Sun 31 Jan 2021 08:00:00 AM PST

Trumpeted as the ‘great experiment,’ the U.S.S. Excelsior was almost the first Federation starship to use Transwarp drive. While that experiment ultimately proved to be a failure, the Excelsior established itself as a capable platform for research and defense thanks to the legendary exploits of her second captain, Hikaru Sulu. Captain Sulu and the Excelsior would literally save the galaxy working with his old colleagues from another legendary starship.

New Visual Variant: U.S.S. Repulse

While the Excelsior will go down in history as an ambitious but failed experiment, it was actually the culmination of decades of advances in subspace physics and warp field research. The Excelsior launched in the 2280s, but Starfleet had been experimenting with the technologies it would use for decades. The U.S.S. Repulse, built primarily as a testbed for these technologies, saw limited service as a top-secret test vehicle in the 2250s and 2260s. Research and iteration made on the Repulse’ warp engines would inspire even more advanced systems on Excelsior.
