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.
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.
With the uncertinity of the situations arising from the Hobus Incident, the Excelsior has been pulled back from the Delta Quadrant. If you think you would like to be part of the history of this amazing Ship, then please join us.
The Excelsior is based in Bravo Fleet's Task Force 38, the Delta Exploratory Initiative although we won't be spending all our time in the Delta Quadrant.
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.

The people that have contacted me are not included in this.
I know we have seen a recent hit in activity, but I'm not ready to give up on this game. I harped on about it before, but this name has a long history and I won't go down without a fight :) Now this mission is drawing to close. I am seeing perhaps another 14 days spent on this mission and I am already in the process of working on our next mission, that will be carefully mapped out to include everyone. As of now, I would like everyone (excluding Lieutenant Commander Shakaar Laren, Lieutenant Sakar, Major Jomar, Captain Novacek, Lieutenant Elbrun, Lieutenant Thrall and Lieutenant Maraco) letting me know they are still here and weather they wish to continue as members of the Excelsior.
Thursday 16th May is your cut off point for this, otherwise I will unfortunately, be removing people, which I do not want to do, because have written so well together :)
Also, let me know your ideas for new missions, I'd love to hear them!

I'd like to welcome Cory to the simm, he will be joining us as our Master-At-Arms.
Also, I'd like to encourage everybody to get back on track with our posting. We are at the half way point and should be wrapped up with this mission in the next week or two :)

I'd like to let everyone know, Mina has brought an old character of hers aboard from Outpost 93, Lieutenant Melifa Thrall our new Chief Counselor. This character has quite an interesting history, namely killing the Romulan Empress during a mission on Outpost 93, but that will be explained when Mina and I release our current JP which is in the works. But this is OOC knowledge, none of it is available OOC.
Happy writing :)

I want to apologise for my last 2 days of inactivity. Had a family emergency and work was getting really busy, so real life attacked and I fought it off haha. As of tomorrow I'll reply to all joint posts and move the plot along

Please all welcome Mina! Mina will be playing the Yeoman, Petty Officer 3rd Class Amelié DuBois. This brings our total number up to 14 Players. A very exciting number, considering we all active members :)
I am pushing the posting of Mission Day 3 back a couple of days to allow us to finish some JP's. Please feel free to hit me up for a JP or any of the crew, lets get writing and absolutely smash this mission :)

Rhyssa's whiskers twitched as she and her team conducted triage on the various injured personal.

If Sovok were human, he would've smiled. It felt refreshing to be back on Earth, portraying himself and not someone else. During his debrief, he was assessed by a human Counselor, whom quickly gave up, passing over to Betazoid, who wasn't so easily intimidated by Sovok. Sovok had finished his…

It feels a bit weird to have my own quarters. So used to having my parents around, and at the Academy I was in a shared dorm room, so I wasn't really alone then either. Speaking of mom and dad, they sent me some family holos. Still I miss them.…

Everything seems so new; I'm not just talking about the ship, but the joining as well.
I thought after my second host that it would get easier, but it never seems to. I'm sure I'll adjust easily, but I don't know how well others will adjust.
Settling in nicely on…
