A long but well thought out and written post. The Excelsior Retrofit is one of the best Cruisers in the game and I am glad that you took the time to go point by point why you do certain things and choose others.
Reading this reminded me of a few things I'd forgotten and pointed me at some other things to look into, mainly with consoles and devices and such. My Excelsior's got a bit more bite to it than yours but that's because I go for 'damage then tanking' where you do the reverse.
Also an addendum for those who would say that this is a lot of effort to put into a Cruiser to give it good damage: I find escorts boring. I did time in a Defiant Retrofit and flying my Excelsior Retrofit is a full hundred times more fun. I would rather put the effort in to make my Cruiser of choice good than laze about in my Defiant making things 'easy.'
