There is a Star Trek CCG card called the USS Excelsior. From another source this is not the Excelsior but a Excelsior-class ship that was seen in The Next Generation, episode "The Offspring".

Can someone tell me what the name of that ship was?

Thanks! --Vuurvosje (talk) 17:05, December 8, 2012 (UTC)

I don't think the ship seen in "The Offspring" was given a specific name, as it was just stock footage. I can't find it on the episode article. Been awhile since I played it but I seem to recall the "USS Excelsior" card being a generic ship card and not meant to represent a particular ship. 31dot (talk) 18:13, December 8, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, the "U.S.S. Excelsior" card was a generic one, like most or all class-ships (it had the four-square icon in front of its name, meaning it could be in play multiple times). If I recall correctly, the company only had rights to TNG imagery at the time, so the screenshot used must have been from some TNG episode. Since stock footage was in fact used throughout TNG, it might still have been a shot that was created to show the "original" Excelsior, though. :) -- Cid Highwind (talk) 12:51, December 9, 2012 (UTC)
