General Overview

The Defiant-class starship is a heavily armed, limited-role Starfleet vessel, developed in response to the Borg threat and the shocking results of Wolf 359. The U.S.S. Defiant (NX-74205) prototype was originally assigned to station Deep Space Nine in order to defend the Federation and Bajoran sector against the increasing Jem'Hadar and Dominion threat.

The USS Defiant (NX-74205) was the class's prototype. It was Starfleet's first dedicated combat vessel, and therefore did not house much in the way of science labs or recreational facilities, or provide for families or diplomatic missions.

The Defiant-class is a considerably smaller, stripped-down, heavily-armored starship and incorporates the latest in Starfleet weaponry and defensive technology. Defiant Class ships are equipped with a class-7 warp drive (DS9: "The Search, Part I"). They are also equipped with a Romulan D'Deridex-class Warbird cloaking device.

Weapons Systems

The Defiant weapons systems make it the one of the most powerful warships in Starfleet. It is outfitted with:
  • Twin Pulse phaser cannons
  • Mark VIII and Mark IX photon torpedoes
  • Mark X quantum torpedoes
  • Dual-layer ablative armor hull
  • Rotating shield modulation.
