Excelsior has TW to all sectors, which is innate and not a console ability. If it was a console ability, it would be 4 modules, but as it's innate it's 5.

Got it?
It's pretty much strictly better (despite being an older ship, due to having a higher turn rate and the innate transwarp) and gets knocked down to the same price if you purchase the C-Store Excelsior (which you should, since it'll be the same price either way unless you get all your fleet modules via the Exchange).

And it's available two tiers earlier, and the correlating C-Store ship is 500 Zen cheaper. As a Sovereign fan, I want to know how that's fair.
