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.

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.

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.

I think (and that could be wrong) most of you have now hit January 1st 2016. In accordance with tradition, I'd love to wish you all the most happiest and healthiest of years yet. May it bring all that you wish and more! I am very proud to be part of this writing community we call Excelsior with each and every one of you. Some of us, haven't been together very long, but that doesn't make you any less part of this community and I look forward to sharing our passion of writing Star Trek in 2016 and beyond.
The Excelsior is due to a reach quite a big milestone in just under 10 months. We will hit 3 years old. The Excelsior is in fact much older than that, but for us, she is still in her infancy, still prone to mistakes and learning curves, but I am excited to see this new iteration unfold!
I look forward to what 2016 can bring for us as individuals, for us as a writing community and for Bravo Fleet as a whole!
Happy New Year, one and all!

The hulking bulk of the Excelsior veered violently to the right and dropping suddenly to avoid an oncoming volley from the second to last Borg cube that the ship was engaging. If it wasn't for the inertial dampeners, the crew would've been flung and violently. But that wasn't to say…

For four years, she had studied on foreign worlds, conducting research for the benefit of the Alpha Quadrant's most vulnerable species. Her first ship assignment, the Excelsior, would now take her to possibilities she could not imagine, at least that is what she hopes.
