She will serve you well. Provided you can stand her appearance.
And it is true, if you own the VA excel, the fleet version only costs 1 FSM.
110% agree, especially the "hate" part.
I think cryptic made excel too good compared to other non STO era ships, especially the Galaxy. In STO the Excel is superior in almost any way, while it should be the other way round. I don't get what Cryptics devs where thinking.
Personally i never liked it's appearance, i hated it in 1984 and i still hate it today.
