Under the guise of an escort vessel, the USS Defiant is Starfleet's first warship and it was made to fight and defeat the Borg. The ship was so powerful and so compact that it almost broke apart during testing. So the project was scraped and shelved. Flash forward a few months, DS9 is now under a new threat: the Dominion. Captain Sisko who was part of the design team for the Defiant, asked to have the ship pulled from storage and assigned to the station. It's first shown in the season three premiere of Star Trek: Deep Space 9 and continues to appear in subsequent episodes.
The USS Defiant is part of the Starships Collection of Star Trek vehicles by Eaglemoss. This incredible collection includes all the most significant ships from the five Star Trek television series. Imported from the U.K. with limited distribution in the U.S., these ships are not easy to find for sale in the United States.
The collection features a full range of Federation and alien vessels including seven incarnations of the Enterprise; all the major Klingon vessels including the Bird-of-Prey; Dominion; Borg; and Romulan ships and is slated to include about 80 ships in total.
