The Excelsior-class is a type of Federation starship, currently employed by Starfleet.


The Excelsior-class Development Project began at the Antares III Shipyards in 2276.


The Federation sought to build an advanced, high-powered starship. Excelsior was planned to have transwarp engines, however, this experimental technology failed in field tests.

The U.S.S. Excelsior was launched in 2282.
