Request -- New Excelsior skin
 
I would like to make a request for another skin that we can select at T5 that would give the Excelsior a more modern look.

I love the traditional look, but would be thrilled with more design options for her.

I have been begging for this since the introduction of the Excelsior, there was no reaction whatsoever.
Good luck with it. :)

Live long and prosper.

I think it'd be good too, although I think KDF skins are more urgent. Starfleet still has three skins for most ships, and many can have a fourth purchased for them. KDF ships on the other hand have one skin for the most part, with some of them having two.

Sorry to jack your thread though, a new 'celsior skin would be cool. I've always thought a skin that is to the Excelsior what Magellan and Majestic are to the Nebula and Galaxy would be awesome.:D

As a man with several Klingon characters at max rank ... I agree.

I just want to make sure this hits the Dev radar. ;)

I'd like a better excelsior design all I can think of when I look at it is 80ís cadillac.

I like the Excelsior, but then again I don't think 80's Caddies look that bad, although I'd probably not enjoy driving one. The fins on the back of the nacelles and some of the sweeping curves put me in the mind of 50s cars as well.

I love the Excelsior Design to death, but new skins for ships that don't have many are always welcome. Maybe something a bit bulkier, or rounder I don't know. Anything's good really if it gives us more pieces to mix and match.

It should be a fairly simple task to design a larger and more updated version of the Vesper class for this. The vesper isnt similar enough to actually just enlarge, the parts wouldnt fit right. But it can be used as a design base and modified to work for a T5 size ship.


It could have the TNG movie necells or TNG show necells. Or for pure awesomeness the option of either. Then its just a matter of giving it a texture on the hull that gives the look and feel of both old and new design.

I like this idea, and I would like more skins on all tier 5 ships.
