I recently saw on the internet there is a ship called the 'USS Excalibur' in the Stargate series but I can't find which movie or the season it appears in.

Can anyone tell me where this reference comes from?

    it doesn't appear in the show as far as i know. i saw an wiki about it being in service from 2020-2023, which puts it past the show, i dunno if its in a video game, or fan fic.

The show you're thinking of is Babylon 5 crusade. The ship was the Excalibur!

    I've downvoted for a few reasons; The ship isn't the USS Excalibur (it's the IAS Excalibur), it's not from Stargate and the OP has already confirmed that he was thinking of the Excalibur from Stargate: TNG. Also, did you need to use a screencap from a mobile phone?

The USS Excalibur isn't from the Stargate TV series (or films), it's from something called Stargate : The Next Generation; a "forum-based Stargate role-playing simulation group"

The game is set approximately 5 years beyond the end of the TV series in a universe where the Stargate program (and the existence of Earth's fleet of starships) have been made public.

The USS Excalibur is one of a variety of new ships introduced exclusively for the game. You can view a full rundown of the ship class and stats here and an artist's mockup is pictured below;

There is no ship called USS Excalibur in the series or movies.

It is however a ship called that in Stargate: The Next Generation (a forum-based Stargate role-playing game).

The other answers are right in that it's fan-made and used in the game Stargate: The Next Generation but that's not where it comes from. That isn't an artist's mockup of a ship from that forum game, the forum game took an artist's work and incorporated it into their thing.

The BB-307 page has a note at the bottom that the art is by "Mallacore." The links above are for the individual ship, not the class it belongs to - the difference between the Prometheus and the 303.

Mallacore/RJB's deviantArt page can be found here. He's got a whole load of work on there and was active on a range of forums and showed his workings out as he'd create stuff, much of which is also posted on there.

The design is also on the cards to be used by the makers of a mod called Stargate Invasion for Sins of a Solar Empire. A couple of their designs also seem to take cues from his work (compare the rear/sides of his Ares and their Claudius). This kind of cross-pollination happens sometime in fandoms with popular, well-done stuff.



You can see it in Stargate Atlantis Season 4 finale "the last man", when MCay is in the future, and asks some questions to General Lorne, behind him you can see the Excalibur.

    That's the USS George Hammond (formerly the USS Phoenix), not the Excalibur.
