Defiant Class Heavy Escort

on Sun Jul 21, 2013 4:16 pm
~ Entry Start ~

The iconic Defiant Class Starship introduced in Star Trek: Deep Space 9.  While it may be passed off as tiny, this ship is not to be underestimated.

The Defiant is a highly maneuverable and fast starship developed in AD 2367 and put into use in AD 2371.  It is still greatly used by Starfleet.  Johnnyred in particular favors the Defiant and uses a squadron of usually six of them to fly escort for larger ships, in particular Andromeda classes and Argo classes.

Since its commission, it has received several upgrades, primarily to its weapon systems.  All Photon Torpedoes have been upgraded to Quantum Torpedoes and the Phaser Cannons have been upgraded to Locked Position Shock Cannons and the Phaser Emitters have been upgraded to Quantum Phaser Emitters.  There have also been two Pulse Phaser Turrets added to the top and bottom of the ship.

The Warp Nacelles have been upgraded to Lower Gamma Class Warp Nacelles allowing the Defiant class to maintain Warp 9.9 indefinitely.

It has also been outfitted with a Zeta Class Deflector Dish developed specifically for smaller ships like the Defiant and Rhode Island.

The Defiant Class has also been equipped with a cloaking device that has since been upgraded to completely remove any signature of the ship and any outline of it.  The cloaking device is only able to completely remove any trace of ships that are close to the size of the Defiant.

I don't like many canon ships (dont' shoot me yet, you still need me), but the Defiant is one that I absolutely LOVE! My only one request is that it be made in grey. Razz And maybe geeble it a liiiitle bit more so it looks a little less flat. I know that's hard to do with it's size, but it doesn't look quite like a real defiant, since you can't fit in those ridges quite as well as are on the defiant.

The only reason it isn't grey is because it's got the colorations for my fleet. Razz

Bah! I still demand a grey one! (I'll just download it and recolor it myself. Razz )

I actually checked the height and beam just to make sure, I do that with all my starships to make sure that they are truly in Perfect Grade scale. Wink

THAT'S what it is! The forward hull, the part that rounds down and then has the bridge/shield/nose/thingy extend from it, appears to be too wide compared to the rest of the ship. The actual width of the ship is correct, but that part is what doesn't quite match... that WOULD offer more room for weapons though... Razz

*drools uncontrollably*

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! Although my opinion may not be the most accurate (I've always been outta touch with ST stuff), I personally think this is perfect. You are the best SNOT builder I've encountered yet. Superb job!
