The USS Excalibur (NCC-1664) was a Federation Constitution-class heavy cruiser in service to Starfleet in the 23rd century. The vessel took on the name of a previous vessel, Rollin Bannock's USS Excalibur, of several years earlier. Excalibur was commanded by Captain Harris in the 2260s, and was a participant in the M-5 wargames simulation of 2268. (TOS episode: "The Ultimate Computer")

The Star Fleet Technical Manual gave the Excalibur a registry number of NCC-1705, however all other subsequent mentions have used the NCC-1664 registry used by the FASA RPG, originally devised by Greg Jein.

Service historyEdit

Excalibur was constructed and commissioned at Tranquility Base, Luna. (ST reference: Ships of the Line)

In the early 2250s the Excalibur was part of a squadron composed of the USS Enterprise and USS Hood sent to the Borderlands to investigate the destruction of Starbase 18 , which was believed to have been attacked by the Klingons. (TOS novel: The Children of Kings)

Prior to 2265, the Excalibur was the second Federation starship to encounter the N'shaii and their satellites in orbit of Velarrh VII. Thanks to data gathered during the USS Constitution's encounter with them in 2257, the Excalibur was well equipped to deal with the threat. Some time later, the Excalibur encountered the N'shaii for a second time, this time operating in orbit of Linyar II. (TOS - My Brother's Keeper novel: Constitution)

At a unspecified point prior to the M-5 war games, Daniel Paris served on the Excaliburand distinguished himself on the ship. (STA novel: Progenitor).

In 2266, the ship was assigned a seven-month patrol of the Romulan Neutral Zone. After this patrol, the Excalibur was allowed a two-week shore leave at Argelius II. (TOS - Who's Who in Star Trek comics: "Who's Who in Star Trek, Issue 1", "Who's Who in Star Trek, Issue 2")

In 2267, the Excalibur was one of the starships assigned to assist the USS Enterprise at the inauguration ceremonies on Altair VI. (TOS - Star Trek 3 novelization: Amok Time)

While not actually mentioned by name in the episode, an earlier draft of the script that was later turned into a novelization by James Blish included this data.

A few months later, the Excalibur, under the command of Captain Anton Harris, along with the USS Lexington, responded to a distress call from the Enterprise after it became trapped in a black hole, TNC 65813, following a battle with Colonel Adrik Thorsen and his followers. The Excalibur and the Lexington towed the powerless Enterprise to the nearest Federation starbase on Neural III. (ST novel: Federation)

Also in 2267 the Excalibur was assigned to Sector 221-G and surveyed the planet Priatia. At this point, the commanding officer was Anton Harris. (NF novel: After the Fall)

Constitutions formation

In early 2268, Excalibur relieved the USS Enterprise at the Beta Cabrini mining colony. Excalibur brought a security contingent and equipment to rig defense systems for the colony. (TOS novel: Legacy)

In 2268 the Excalibur took part in the disastrous M-5 multitronic computer tests. The Excalibur, along with the Lexington, Hood, and Potemkin, participated in war games to test the computer's reflexes while it was installed aboard the Enterprise. The computer went insane, however, and fired full weapons on the Excalibur, reducing the ship to a powerless hulk and killing her entire 400-odd crew. (TOS episode & Star Trek 9 novelization: The Ultimate Computer)

A second Constitution-class USS Excalibur II was commissioned, named in honor of this vessel's sacrifice.
