Wow, might have to change the class of the USS Regel now. I've been in love with the constitution lately. This looks like a worthy decendant.

Interesting idea... and a sexy look as well. Assuming it is a class we can play in game (I still wanna hear about the availability of the Nebula and Galaxy classes) I wonder hoe easy it would be to upgrade it? My understanding is that Starfleet vessels come with a significant amount of unused space to begin with, so that labs or expansions can be installed by the crews. If thats so it would seem relativly easy to install more science labs and such as needed...

Any guesses as to what level players will have to be in order to access this vessel? Hopefully not too long.

You read my mind. Excelsior was the best design they ever came up with (the original one, not the one with that silly bulge in the bow from Generations).

Now lets see the Not-Excelsior but exactly like the Excelsior class....

Overall, still pretty disappointed in the seemingly total lack of originality in the starship classes in this game, they're all either copy and paste from Enterprise (Raptor, Romulan bird of prey seen in recent Gamespot screenshots) or one of the shows, or they're "current" versions of the exact same design that was deemed outdated (Constitution = Excalibur, Newbie ship = Miranda) or they're slightly altered from existing designs (NX-91001 = Sovereign, Oslo = Akira with a Norway Saucer section)

I like the look but it looks almost exactly like the Constitution class. I really hope they don't give us the ability to make these things look exactly like the old constitution class ships....if that's the case they might as well let me make the Defiant class look like an F-16...



Cryptic didn't design that :p Some guy designed that 40 years ago and Cryptic put nacelles and hull texture designed for more recent TNG movie ships on it :p

I have to admit, this doesn't bother me. I'm actually looking to zoom around in some known, traditional hulls. Just personal preference, though. You're certainly correct in that they're all recognizable.

It looks like a cross between the galaxy and sovereign class ships. For instance, take the basic outline and configuration of the Enterprise-D and up grade the nacelles, deflector dish and saucer with components from the Enterprise-E. Not a bad layout, but it does look like "starfleet" is looking back to his older roots to make better ships. (Like Ford did with the latest body of the mustang) I'm still a fan of the new Arika class ship, that NX they're comming out with.

love it!!!! we learned some interesitng mechanics to, being able to put your shields over enemy ships, trasporting repair crew to other ships and being able to hold down other ships. It sounds like a tank? or a tank/healer...anyway it looks great!!

yes, the energy beam weapon used was a phaser

Does this mean that Mackenzie Calhoun gets his Excalibur destroyed (again) by 2391 if they're commissioning a new Excalibur class of ships?

BTW, why does a ship commisioned in 2391 has a higer registry number than a ship comisioned in 2409? (the NX-91001)
