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!
