Funny thing is the Excelsior was ment to be a replacement scrappy for the constitution class, but damned did you love that ship from the moment you saw it on Star Trek III

Indeed!

Did you know that in the original script of TVH, Kirk and co. got the Excelsior as their ship, instead of the Ent-A?

Really? Had no idea, on one hand that would have being totally awesome. One the other hand, who didn't get all misty eyed when you saw the refitted Enterprise?;-)

Nice, nice, NICE shot here! In my imagining of things, the USS Kirishima, NCC-2008, first command of Captain Sesshomaru Touken. He commanded her from 2295 to 2315 and exploring the unknown was a welcome change to him from battling oppressors of all sorts of forms he had been doing over his long life up to this point.

Well, he'd been doing that for over a millennium and needed a break. Not that long of one, but at least a few years of doing something rather peaceful for a change, 'vacation work' if you wanna call it that.

Have to read up on what's known on the Cardassian War to further decide more on his timeline periods, but I envision he got back to kicking arse during the Cardassian War and showing the Cardassians why you better know damn well what you're getting into when you pick fights with Youkai. That sets up in my mind Capt. Sesshomaru becoming much like the a 'General Patton' of the Federation during the Dominion War. xD

I wanna know how in the series, we first see the Excelsior as registered as "NX-2000", and later in the movies, we see it as "NCC-2000". I wonder why that changed?
Reply
:iconthefirstfleet:
thefirstfleet Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013
NX denotes experimantral vessel. After the successful trial runs, the ship was given a standard registry, denoting her service status.
