Welcome to the USS Excelsior!

The USS Excelsior holds a proud place throughout history. Originally dubbed the Great Experiment and commanded by one Hikaru Sulu. In Latin, Excelsior means 'Ever Upward'. Throughout its time, each Excelsior has been a Ship of the Line, starting with the Original Excelsior Class vessel.

More recently, the Excelsior-C holds a proud place in the history of The Federation. The Excelsior served in 2384 during the Battle of Union. Subsequently, the Excelsior was the first Federation Starship to discover The Round Table. Some months after, the Excelsior completed the first of many successful exploration missions throughout that sector. The Excelsior completed many first contact missions making the discovery of the Round Table extremely important.

The Excelsior participated in the Battle for Starbase 900. At the start of the battle, Starfleet Command ordered the destruction of the Federation Transwarp Gateway. The Excelsior carried out their orders. Now, the Excelsior with the Task Force must now seek a way back to Federation or face the same danger that Voyager faced.


About the Game

It is our aim to create an enjoyable and stimulating environment to write and be creative. The Excelsior has a rich and diverse history, spanning many years and many Commanding Officer's.

Many people have come to love the Excelsior. I myself was told when I first took over the Excelsior that she is a special ship and I have learned that. It is special. Its a special place to write and I have made some great friends along the way, which is the ethos of the Excelsior. Have fun, in our special place with friends.

If you would like become part of the history that is Excelsior, please submit an application. We are only as a strong as the players who write. The aim is for us to be a community of collaborative writers, creating a story together.

I received word yesterday that, after I completed the Pegasus Fleet Command Academy, the Excelsior is now officially part of Pegasus Fleet. The fleet has its own chatroom on AceIRC (if you join the Excelsior's room and then put in the text field /join #PegasusFleet it will get there) and of course there are the forums.

If anyone has any issues, please don't hesitate to contact me!

But we are back up.

Thanks again team for your patience!

I received an last night confirming the Excelsior's acceptance into Pegasus Fleet with one condition prior to officially joining. I have to complete the Pegasus fleet CO course. I have already submitted the first assignment and I'm hoping to have this done in a few days.

I'll keep you updated as this progresses.

Posted on Tuesday July 26th, 2016 @ 10:37pm by Captain Peter Gardner in Website Update

Hi everyone,

There have been some changes to do with the website, but I want to share with you the reasons for all this upheaval for those that don't know.

Basically, we have been hosted with James Heaney, who owns the ussexcelsior.com domain. James was a former CO of our Excelsior and he bought the domain back then. Whilst James has been hosting us, I've been unable to get to the backend to sort out the database issues that we have been suffering with, as that would give me the access to all his other stuff. James runs a highly successfully audio drama around his Excelsior and there are some resources (which has expressed not being able to explain why) which sit on our domain ussexcelsior.com that his audio drama heavily relies on and has done for a long time. As such, he is unable to simply transfer the domain to a new host.

He has tried several solutions to resolve this, but he is unable to. A while ago, I purchased a new domain, which is ussexcelsior.net. The new site, now resides here http://www.ussexcelsior.net. The old domain ussexcelsior.com will, when James gets online he will be doing a redirection for anyone going to the .com domain.

For some of us, me included, this is going to be a big change, something I really didn't want to happen, but it has and its the only solution that is presenting itself to us.

The old sub-domain, will also automatically redirect to our new site.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me regarding me this.

-Bobby
