I believe they said some c-store ships would not be getting the fleet version if they did not have a console. The excelsior had its transwarp abilities reintegrated and the console removed. The Connie also only has weapons and not a console so it would not get a version either.
1) We arent talking about C-store ships. They are giving plenty of *non* C-store ships T5 versions in the fleet store.
2) The Exeter is a C-store ship and *does* come with a console.
Therefore if they did make a T5 Excalibur it could have the Exeter skin as an unlockable variant and have a console with it.
