The Excelsior isn't over 200 years old, she's over 100 years old. She was built and launched around 2283/2285, around that time. And the game year is 2409, the original Excelsior went on her first five year mission around 2287/2288.
That would make the Excelsior spaceframe around 124/125 years old and still a reliable spaceframe.
Wish construction in real life was that reliable after over a century, let alone a decade.
As for the Galaxy and Galaxy X, it depends on what you fancy. The Beam Overload skill is almost as fully effective as the phaser lance and Beam Overload 3 can be learned.
Though the Galaxy X is pretty tempting.
