The Excalibur Class was a design born from the vastly improving technologies since the launch of the Galaxy Class. With the improvements in computer system technologies, increasing accuracy, range and overall ability of sensor technologies, advancements in phaser arrays, and new forms of offensive weapon technologies the Galaxy Class was becoming out of date for the role of deep space, long range explorer. The Excalibur Class was originally a proposed design for the Sovereign Class, which was rejected in favor of a more tactical design. With the Galaxy Class still the only large scale dedicated explorer, the Excalibur design was reevaluated as a possible candidate to incorporate all of the newest technologies into a larger ship capable of deep space exploration, to serve along side the Galaxy Class. Although with the swaying tides of the battle against the Borg Collective, the development of the Excalibur was considerably slowed in favor of more combat-oriented designs.
