who thinks the defiant is one of the best classes of ship

Untill the refit Dadelus and Odessy hit Star Gate Atlantis now ship in Sci Fi destroyed ships faster than the Defiant.

It's some 10x more powerful than the Galaxy, highly manuverable well equiped and specificly designed to kill ships in record time. There is frankly no better combat vessel in Trek.

In fact I would put a Defiant class starship to win against just about any ship except a Voth Mother ship and a Borg Cube. It will go against Scimitar, The Dominion Ship-Killer, the Regents 4,000 meter Negh'var.

I admite I wasn't initially a fan of the design. It was a rapid depature from the Star Fleet norm but I had to start to reconsider after The Search Part one were this ship fire 6 volleys in 2 seconds missing three times and destroying the attack ship in three volleys. Nothing short of incredible can describe that preformance and ever since I've stayed glued to the screen anytime Defiant went into battle.

After looking over the model I appreciated Defiant in a whole new way. It had all the standard equipment, and including landing gear and three shuttle bays and a massive impulse engine. The features of the ship included the new sensor pallettes that would be later put on Voyager. It lacks some features but for this completely encapsulated warship it's forgivable.


All Hail Defiant.

Performence wise, it is one of, if not, the best starfleet vessel ever. But it looks like **** and not the typical beauty of starfleet vessels.

The ship has a certain beauty about it. It's definitely not a lady it's a killer

Originally it was an abandoned "Borg Fighter" so, that would explain some of it's lack of Starfleet styling. It wasn't made to explore, but to fight exclusively, probably a first we've seen in Trek.

I liked the change of style on it I loved it from day one.

Zardoz 05-23-2008 06:02 AM

Hmmm interesting there Jed!

The Defiant class rules! Not much else to say.

Jed Starkiller 05-23-2008 07:35 AM

I dunno I just thought they did a good job of making it look Treky but different from the Saucer section, Star Drive and Warp Pylon styles of the other ships. I guess that why visually I like Voyager its different.
