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.

» Kicking off

Posted on Saturday May 28th, 2016 @ 10:07pm by Captain Peter Gardner in General News

Right everyone, we are kicking back off. Whilst we are going to be using the TF38 established canon of the Borg Attack at the Round Table and the destruction of the transwarp gateway, we are going to be focusing on the Excelsior and Diogara. As some of you may know, the Excelsior has a rich history, with many Captains before me and with that many stories that have already been told and some feel, left unfinished. I am being led by Robert on this particular area and I am excited to be allowing Robert to lead this story, Enemies Closer. So please watch out for more posts this week to kick us off!

If anyone has any ideas for missions let me know!

The Excelsior is now at Diogara Station whilst the other ships undergo repairs. Robert, aka Major Novacek, is currently working on our next mission, which I am quite excited about. As soon as it is ready, I'll let everyone know!

If anyone else has any mission ideas, or even side missions within our missions, please just Private Message me.

For those that don't know and as a reminder for those that do, Diogara Station is an Immense Class Station. This station houses the Diogara Defence Force Training Academy, the conversion school from DDF to Starfleet, Markets, shops and bars just like on DS9, including massive holodecks and other game rooms, whilst the shops and other areas haven't been detailed yet, I am more than willing to be open ideas to add to that list, as I am open to your creativity.

Hi everyone,

I've noticed there is a few back posts to get posted. That isn't a problem. Once you've completed them just post but ensure in the timeline section it says backpost X days before The Darkness Returns.

I'll be posting again in 2-3 days to move us on again. We will be starting a new mission in the next week or so.

Welcome back Craig,

Tripartite Lounge was one of the smaller and less lively of recreational facilities aboard Diogara Station made available to the crews of Task Force 38’s decimated fleet.

The lounge’s large exterior viewports overlooked open space outside the station and offered glimpses of the surviving broken and batter task force starships…

Peter looked up from his PADD in disgust at the First Minster. The First Minister had suggested that the attack on the Round Table was a result of Starfleets actions and exploration further into Borg territory. Which couldn’t of been further from the truth. Starlet had actively avoided any exploration…

“Why are bodies always discovered so early in the morning?” Crewman Andrew Capen croaked through his parched throat. This morning he suffered from severe bed-head and wore a disheveled half-zipped uniform.

“Don’t tell me you slept in your uniform again.” Crewman Eliza Barnes ribbed her Security Investigations partner as she…

Private First Class Renata de Leon in a daze drifted through the makeshift triage equipment lining the otherwise empty corridors around and through the medical quarters of Excelsior. Gurneys lined the hallway, along with scattered first aid kits, discarded power cells for equipment, and spent vials from hyposprays: the aftermath…
