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'. Throughout its time, each Excelsior has been a Ship of the Line, starting with the Original Excelsior Class vessel.

More recently, the Excelsior-C holds a proud place in the history of Task Force 38. The Excelsior 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 The Round Table.

With its long history, the Excelsior has a special place in the hearts and minds of many.The current Excelsior is a Sovereign Class Crusier, one of the more advanced ship's in the Fleet.

It is our aim to create an enjoyable and stimulating environment to write and be creative. If you would like become part of the history that is Excelsior, please submit an application. We are only as a strong as the players who write.

I am pleased to welcome Jake to the Excelsior. He comes from another game in Task Force 38 that was well known for its quality. Jake is going to write for a female Gorn, our new Assistant Chief Engineer and a very unique character, a Cardassian, acting as an Observer sent from the Cardassian Defence Force to represent Cardassian interests in the Delta Quadrant. This will be quite an interesting concept, one I am looking forward to see unfold.

Welcome again Jake! I look forward to writing with you.

Also further to the above, I do not mind people taking secondary positions in other departments as Jake has done. Hit me up and we can discuss it.

Posted on Monday November 16th, 2015 @ 11:00pm by Captain Peter Gardner in General News

Just a quick note regarding the Timeline. At the minute, we are on Mission Day 1. I'd like to see the majority of us stick to around that time, but I understand some people will be making Backposts and of course posts in the future, IE our XO and COO.. Around Day 3-4 we will engage the Borg and rescue our XO and COO. I have no issue with people making posts for MD2 but don't post them until the next few posts have been posted. Or just PM me and ask me when it is okay.



» The Return of Bahrat

Posted on Thursday November 12th, 2015 @ 10:51pm by Captain Peter Gardner in General News

I'd like to officially welcome Kurtis, aka Bahrat back to the Excelsior in his old position. Kurtis is known by a lot of you but for those that don't he is an extremely good writer and he is good, I mean extremely good at poking and nagging me.

In truth I am very relived to have him back on the Excelsior!

Invidious’ cargobay was huge relative to the ship’s size, by Starfleet standards anyway. But Invidious was designed and built by the Qanalli during wartime. The cargobay could easily accommodate a battalion of soldiers and mechanized armor. However, in her present role as a pirate ship, the largely empty and cavernous…
