i like a good solid idea, any chance of some info about your Excelsior class refit ship, crew compliment and such.
In my research I have seen debates on the size of an Excelsior-class ship. I am going with the details in the Star Trek Deep Space Nice Technical Manual. The Deep Space Nine episode "Paradise Lost" didn't give a lot of details on the Lakota-type refit, so I feel free to be creative and decide what kind of upgrades were done.
I have enough talk about engineering. I need to work on bringing my characters to life.
