P.S.S. Steadfast

on Wed Aug 13, 2014 4:50 pm
Okay, due to my love of the Excelsior Class, and due to the good reviews I got on my latest Excelsior Class, I decided to make the Excelsior Class starship Steadfast my personal flagship. Although I still like my former flagship, the P.S.S. Liberty, I am more fond of the Excelsior Class.

The P.S.S. Steadfast is virtually identical to my Excelsior Class Starship already posted, but it has a different color scheme.

The Steadfast is dedicated to God, Whose steadfast love sustains me always. It is also dedicated to the Christians in Iraq who are being mercilessly persecuted by the Muslim militant group ISIL. May God grant those Christians grace to remain steadfast in this grave persecution, and may we keep them in our prayers and thoughts!

Statistics and form are the same as the Excelsior, save that I might add that the weaponry and shielding have been updated to contemporary PCG standards for a ship this size. (Yes, I am too lazy to be more specific. Razz )

Interesting color scheme... Razz I'm not big on ST canon, but based on what I know, that Excelsior is epic! I love the Federation sleekness! Just one thing...isn't the Excelsior a bit on the weak side when it comes to firepower? Razz

On a sidenote, I thought it was ISIS not ISIL. Could be wrong though.

Well, the Excelsior isn't the biggest, baddest ship in the Federation, but in its day it was a formidable foe. However, as I lazily pointed out in the description, I have updated the weaponry to contemporary PCG standards for a ship this size. Razz

It originally was ISIS, but last I read, they've changed to ISIL.

Anyway, if you really wanted to make it up to date with PCG firepower standards, add a good-old-fashioned missile! Razz And now that I'm "re-looking" at the image, those warp nacelles are epic. Very Happy

Guess it's an either or. Haven't exactly been up-to-date with the news, which I ought to be.

Very nice Excelsior, and I agree that the Excelsior is definitely fitting for a flagship. Very Happy Ships of the class has held up well, though I don't think a PCG starship would run on only stock equipment. Razz

I'm pretty sure they use both ISIS and ISIL; regaurdless, I think everyone needs a little prayer over there. Pretty much anyone who isn't a fanatical Sunni is feeling the heat, and hard (even then, you're not safe). Sad

But enough on global politics; on to the ship! You know my feelings on the original Excelsior, so I really don't have much to say, except that the Excelsior (being, what, 300 years old now?) would be more than a little out-of-date. It probably needs a whole new arsenal. Razz

More like 400 years old actually Razz So it's going to need some INCREDIBLE refitting. Razz

I love it Scare! Add the name is a good one. And yes, we must pray for those being persecuted around the world.

Again, I really love that saucer design!

I'm in an oddly quiet mode, so I'll stop there. Razz

I KNOW THE EXCELSIOR IS OLD, THAT'S WHY I LAZILY MADE THE GENERALIZATION THAT IT HAD BEEN UPDATED TO CONTEMPORARY PCG STANDARDS!!!

*breaks down and sobs*

LOL, JK.

@Mirage:
Yeah, everyone over there needs prayer...even the terrorists themselves.  Neutral 

@Talmid:
I've been waiting for your stamp of approval, you orthodox-lover, you. Razz

@Dino:
You ARE quiet, aren't you? Razz

BEAUTIFUL!!!

I absolutely adore this! The Excelsior has always been one of my favorites, and your refit may be the best I've seen yet!

*Pats on back* It's ok, Scare, I understand. I hate coming up with weapons and tech and deflector and such details for my canon starships. Maybe unless we just have some kind of outstanding new tech we added to them we should just make it assumed that it's been update to save ourselves some time. XD

@J-red: Thanks! Glad you like it! LOL, yeah, I think we ought to make that generalization. After all, it would take some research--and some unnecessary time--to find out all the ways that the Old School ships need to be technologically updated in order to fit in with our current time period. Razz


@All:
The new .lxf file--complete with true SNOT saucer--is up!

I am now pretty much satisfied with my work...

...that won't last too long...

...because it's always EVER UPWARD, EVER BETTER with Excelsior...

...but for right now I'm satisfied. Wink
