Defiant Development Patch.jpg
The Defiant-class was one of many new Starfleet classes developed in response to the Borg threat following Starfleet's tragic losses in the Battle of Wolf 359. The class was the first that Starfleet ever developed purely as a warship however for years following the Borg's early incursions, the expected invasion never materialized so the prototype USS Defiant spent much of its time in space dock in the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. The Defiant prototype was pulled out of storage in 2371 when the Dominion threat emerged. After several upgrades by Deep Space 9 Operations Chief Miles O'Brien, the ship was deemed worthy of use and more were constructed.

Equipped with a compact class-7 warp core, spanning three decks in the aft section, that produces enough energy to power a vessel four times larger than the class. This meant that Defiant-class vessels put out a warp signature equivalent to much larger starships. When energy was diverted from the weapons' ready reserves, a Defiant-class ship could even achieve the speed of warp 9.5 for a limited period of time.

The Treaty of Algeron, a peace treaty signed between the United Federation of Planets and the Romulan Star Empire in 2311, expressly prohibits the development or use of cloaking device technology by the Federation. Aside from one incident in 2358, where then-Captain Pressman attempted to circumvent this clause with the test of a phasing cloaking device developed covertly aboard the USS Pegasus, the treaty was only ever altered once; in 2371 an exception was granted which allowed for the limited supervised use of at least one cloaking device on loan from the Romulans. Operation of the cloaking device was to be limited to the Gamma Quadrant (aboard the USS Defiant). In return, the Romulans would receive all information the Federation obtained on the ship's voyages into the Gamma Quadrant, most importantly any information concerning the Dominion.

Main Bridge acted as the nerve center of the vessel, and the entire module was sunken into a much larger deck 1 than on most Federation starships to provide added protection during combat situations. Access to the bridge was provided by two doorways at the back, located on both port and starboard sides. Just forward of the starboard entryway was the location of the ship's dedication plaque, as well as an auxiliary computer access panel.

Sickbay was located on Deck 2 between the mess hall and science labs. Containing four biobeds, this room served as the primary crew support facility during emergency situations. The room was equipped with limited surgical facilities and was primarily intended to stabilize patients until they could be delivered to a nearby friendly starbase medical facility. In its limited role as a reconnaissance starship, the Defiant-class was equipped with two dedicated science and medical labs for field testing and investigations. These rooms mirrored their counterparts on larger Federation starships by making use of scaled down devices that could commonly be found on those ships.

Main Engineering was situated on Deck 1 with the lower section on deck 2. The Master Situation Monitor was located in the starboard wall bulkhead. The warp core was placed on an elevated platform in the center of the room opposite the control consoles. Ships of the Defiant-class were equipped with a class-7 warp drive.

Crew Quarters or 'cabins' were equipped with one replicator port and one standard computer terminal. Overall, crew quarters aboard Defiant-class vessels were the most spartan when compared to other ships in the fleet. With emphasis towards the tactical systems being the foremost priority in the vessel designers' minds, crewmembers had to share their quarters with at least one other crewmate during normal times of operation. Only the ship's commanding officer was given his own room on Deck 1, which doubled as an informal ready room.

Mess Hall due to a lack of any sort of recreational facilities, the only place for informal gathering were the two mess hall areas located on the port side of Deck 2. Like all the equipment and materials aboard the ship, the mess hall was spartan and compact. At the head of the room were three open slots that served as dispensers for the replicators. A counter extended from the underside and was used for the placement of trays, mugs and eating utensils. Seating inside the mess hall was provided by four metallic tables arranged in a semicircle at the wider end of the room. These tables were approximately one meter square, and each had four stools connected to its legs. In addition, the mess hall doubled as a makeshift meeting area that could be used to conduct crew briefings and mission profiles. A tall screen panel located on one of the walls could be used as a visual aid to display tactical graphics.
