True, although it's worth noting the Excelsior itself was still in service as late as TNG's seventh season, 2370 giving it over eighty years of service.
Just out of curiousity, what is this based on?
It isn't the same Excelsior. There's references to an Excelsior but apparently it's this one:
Ron Moore was once questioned about the Excelsior mentioned in Interface and he claimed the intent was that it was meant to be the same ship Sulu commanded. I guess he didn't know about the computer display in The Measure of a Man. Hell, this is the first I learned about it, and that's saying something.
