I sure hope we'll see the Excelsior refit variant. Best would be both variants with exchangable parts, that would make everyone happy.

My expectations are that we'll have the "Sutherland" Nebula (the one that was leaked) and the NCC-2000 version of the Excelsior.

That said, I think it'd be really great if we got the options, at least for the Excelsior - I really like the idea of a "vanilla" Excelsior at T3 and the refit at T5.

As long as they can fullfill any role (Tac/Sci/Eng) then I think everyone would be happy and it would be canon.

Either version of the Excelsior would be good for me, as they are both simply beautiful. It would be nice if we can somehow choose which variant we want, or even customize our own Excelsiors in such a way that we can, say have the original Excelsior in terms of the saucer but have the hull of the Enterprise-B / Lakota.

But whatever the decision is for the variants, as long as the ship is in the game, especially as a Tier 3 with an option to refit to Tier 5 later, I will be one happy camper.

Agreed!

agreed ESPECIALLY with the Nebula since it was designed with quick adaptations to anyrole in an extremely short amount of time.

I am hoping to see variants of the excelsior as well. But judging from the way things look so far in this pictures it is not going to be the NCC-2000 type of the NCC-1701-B type. Even though on the nacelles it states the serial number as NCC-2000 the extra impulse engines on the saucer contradict that. Since the NCC-2000 only had to impulse engines and not four. But this could possibly be a hint that there will be an NCC-2000 variant included with the refit ship model as well.

The registry number on the Excelsior show is actually NCC-2000 D, like the NCC-1701 D, this would indicate a future generation model, tying in with the refit model. I'm not sure that Starfleet would produce the unrefit model any more, as the ones in the Dominion War were likely in service since Kirk's time and the Excelsior wings took heavy losses in the Dominon War. It would make sense for there to be only the refit model in-game. That said, from a non-canon standpoint it would be nice to have the original variant.
