U.S.S Defiant NX-74205

This prototype Defiant Class Battleship, the United Star Ship Defiant, Registration Number NX-74205, was
originally developed as a secretweapon by the Federation against the Borg threat of the late 2360's. When
the Borg threat became less urgent Starfleet decided to discontinue the program as the ship was no longer
needed, not to mention it was riddled with design flaws.

With the threat posed by the Dominion and its Jem'Hadar troops, and by the onset of conflict with the Klingons,
the U.S.S. Defiant was brought to space station Deep Space Nine on Stardate 48212.4, and was "officially" clas-
sified as an escort. She is armed with standard phasers, as well as a new type of pulse-phasers, and quantum
torpedoes. The U.S.S. Defiant is also equipped with a Cloaking Device from a Romulan D'Deridex Class Warbird,
as a result of an agreement with the Romulan Star Empire, and thus making her the first Federation vessel to
"officially" carry such a device. She has a maximum Impulse Velocity of 0.25c (1/4 light speed), and a maximum
sustainable warp velocity of 9.6. Her hull ablative armor matrix material is made of axially granulated polymer on
tritanium foam.

When the Defiant first came to the station, she was full of laws, where one of them was the overpowering for the
ship of her size - she hasenough generators to run a ship many times bigger than herself. Also during her initial
test, she nearly tore herself to pieces at full impulse speed. Chief OPS Officer Miles O'Brien has had his hands
full trying to fix all the flaws included in their new ship, and it seem he has been successful. No major flaw has
turned up for quite some time now.Unlike the comfort of most of the ships in Starfleet whose primary purpose is
exploration and discovery, the wasp-like U.S.S. Defiant was built for one purpose ... War.
