Just the resurrect an old thread but I agree. The Excelsior is long overdue to be touched up with greater detail and also as seen in Star Trek VI TUC we saw that the torpedo tubes are located on the side on the engineering hull and not the neck piece between saucer and secondary hull.

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.

It be nice if they atleast provide a skin alternative to make it look like a ship for the 25th century or atleast the 24th lol. But yeah it would be great to get a update to the excelsior design. Something like the picks shown that make you know where the design Idea came from and closely following what the excesior looks like but more modern.

I agree with it needing a new look. Im a Tac and when I do get in a cruiser for fun, its the Excelsior due to it having the best turn rate.

I would probably play with it more if it had a more modern ship skin. They made the newer Connie, why not do the same for an END GAME ship of the same Era?

I got in mine yesterday and maybe seen one other. I know they are "supposedly" working on it, but this game really needs more variety in ships in the END game. All you see are the same Oddy's(seriously every where), Sovi's, Fleet escorts, and Promi. Sometimes the occasional Intrepid and Defiant.

HEY JAM JAMZ, maybe looking into this if you haven't After all the guy seems to be hinting at givin us the long awaited Akira Retro
