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 GameIt 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.
Excelsior's current mission is 'Enemies Closer.' This mission will involve the Vaadwaur and provide the crew with many subjects to explore.

Bobby and I have run into an issue with the website allowing us to log in to the control panel. The website is still viewable, this issue seems restricted to the control panel (and hence posting and messaging). I have tried with Chrome and Firefox to no avail. I've managed to get partial access to features using MS edge browser (enough to post this news update anyway). This is likely a server issue with our hosting provider, hopefully it will clear up soon, but may not until we can get ahold of our hosting admin.
And if you're NOT having trouble logging in, feel free to post in the meantime.

Ramall stood outside Magnus Sterling's office clutching a bronze-colored Cardassian PADD at his side. He tapped it quietly against thigh as he stared at the door chime. He had to be careful with this new crew. Unlike the Deadalus, Greset hadn't been presented with the opportunity to bond with the…
Magnus Sterling stepped across the threshold from the turbolift onto deck 25, colloquially called Marine Country by the ship’s crew. For Sterling starfleet marines were a curious bunch. By tradition and training marines always considered themselves at-war while deployed aboard starships. Indeed, Sterling would be hardpressed to find a more…
Commander Magnus Alastair Sterling rounded a corridor junction and halted before a heavy secured door, flanked by an armed security crewman.

For four years, she had studied on foreign worlds, conducting research for the benefit of the Alpha Quadrant's most vulnerable species. Her first ship assignment, the Excelsior, would now take her to possibilities she could not imagine, at least that is what she hopes.
