It lends some weight to your theory. However, I could conclude also that the ship uses modular construction. This would allow even entire sections to be swapped out and easily replaced.

So say a ship does get a huge chunk torn out of it. Ok, remove the damaged section blocks, put in new section blocks. Easy. :-)

So I say it's still up in the air as to whether or not that Excelsior you see is a brand new ship or a previously produced ship that is just getting repaired.

And we'll probably never know until some insider at Paramount actually confirms the Excelsior's production life.
