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 currently based out of the Diogara Sector, 1 day at warp 9 from The Round Table. The Diogara Sector is home to the Immense Class Starbase, Diogara Station, under the Command of Captain Lanniefelysa Merefica, a member of the Diogaran Species. The Excelsior, having completed a 3 month tour of in that sector, is about to embark on a missions of exploration.

The Excelsior now has its own chatroom. There is a link on the Nova entitled Chat, which uses the KiwiIRC webclient to take you straight there. However, if you join through another client once you're in the Bravo Fleet, type in /join #Excelsior
I look forward to seeing you all in there. I'll be there all the time, through my own client, but I might be AFK, but I'll get all the messages when I come back. I hope we can fully utilize this tool.

It is with great regret that I announce that Robert tendered his resignation to me from his position as Marine Commanding Officer, Major Zeleny Novacek. Robert was the Last Man Standing under the previous CO of the Excelsior and became the first member to join the Gardner-Era Excelsior.
Robert, there will always be a place for you on the Excelsior if you ever find the time to return. I wish you every success in work and school!
