The Legendary Excelsior-class Miracle Worker Heavy Cruiser is a Tier 6 Cruiser which may be flown by Starfleet characters, including Federation-aligned Romulan Republic and Dominion characters. The faction restrictions of this starship can be removed by having a level 65 KDF character or by purchasing the Cross Faction Flying unlock from the Zen Store. 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 the Zen Store as part of the 2021 Anniversary Legendary Bundle for 25,000 Zen small icon.png.

Overview[]

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.

Class Information

Purchasing the Legendary Excelsior Miracle Worker Heavy Cruiser for 25,000 Zen small icon.png unlocks all existing ship variants.

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.

SKIN UNLOCK: Free with this starship
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’s warp engines would inspire even more advanced systems on Excelsior.
