The Excalibur II-class was a large Federation battleship that entered service in the late 25th century.

History

The Excalibur-class was submitted at the same time as the Sovereign-class. Both ships were roughly equal in proposed specs. The Sovereign was approved while the Excalibur was put on hold. But the excalibur project was returned in 2401, eight years after the Borg attack in 2373, and the first ship built was delayed in 2410, being the largest ship class to be built by starfleet standards.

Following the Borg attack of 2373, Starfleet re-opened the Excalibur files. They altered the ship from Explorer/Battleship specs to include rapid response abilities, increasing the size of the vessel by nearly 50%. Weapons were increase with fire power, though as was crew needed for those systems. In their place was put facilities for Covert Ops Teams, Marines, and even Diplomatic and Medical personnel. In the event of a medical emergency, these spaces could be configured for emergency medical care, and thus the ship is equipped with no less then 4 separate EMH programs. Only the Hope-class Medical Ship and Starbases carry as many independent EMH programs. The Excalibur Mark II is also capable of MVAM (multi vector assault mode).

After the destruction of USS ENTERPRISE NCC 1701-F, the starfleet promised to put the Excalibur class to be the next Enterprise with the NCC 1701-G annex.
