If we don't get a Sovereign refit - or even if we do - I'd like to see a Sovereign skin for the Excel-R myself. Give us an option between a "classic" and "modern design." IMO the Sovereign is in line to become the Excelsior of the fleet for the next century, anyway, and in a lot of ways is a direct successor to the Excelsior sub-branch of the saucer-hull-nacelles Constitution-based design. It'd also make me feel a LOT less weird about flying an Excel-R around - in fact, although I try to tell myself it's a Sovereign's insides stuffed into an old hull that's optimized for transwarp, it still feels like I'm flying a museum piece, so I don't do it often, even though I paid for it.
