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

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: Resolute Advanced Heavy Cruiser, 3,000 |
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.

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.

The Legendary Excelsior-class Miracle Worker Heavy Cruiser supports the following cruiser commands:
Cyclical Quantum Slipstream Drive
Cyclical Quantum Slipstream Drive is a built-in ability which allows improved Sector Space travel speed of 107.8 (approx Warp 23) for 90 seconds instead of normal 30 seconds. Re-initializing it takes 30 seconds instead of the normal 120 seconds.
The Legendary Excelsior-class Miracle Worker Heavy Cruiser features built-in Innovation mechanic which requires activation of three bridge officer abilities corresponding to colors on the Innovation display window. Successfully matching the colors will automatically trigger the available Innovation effect for 10 seconds. One of six possible Innovation effects will be randomly selected each time the Innovation mechanic refreshes.

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.
This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.
Equipment slots and seating
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, science console slots and available bridge officer (boff) abilities will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:
This starship's universal console slot is available immediately.
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 (1.45 for the Legendary Excelsior-class Miracle Worker Heavy Cruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
