The Defiant class is Starfleet’s first true warship, though officially designated as an escort class. The Defiant design project was started after the initial Borg invasion, which left the Federation feeling vulnerable to future attack, on an extremely accelerated schedule. Designed from the ground up as an extremely manoeuvrable weapons platform featuring quantum torpedoes and rapid fire pulse Phasers, the Defiant class is Starfleet’s premier class. As thoughts of the Borg diminished, the Defiant program was scraped after the ship proved to have excessive power and weapons problems. With the coming of the Dominion threat the USS Defiant was stationed at DS9 to hold the Dominion at bay until reinforcement could arrive
