Defiant, USS - Federation starship on the science fiction series STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE/SYN/1993-99.


The USS Defiant was originally designed to fight a ruthless race of cybernetic beings called The Borg (from the Delta Quadrant), but was later given to Star Fleet Commander Captain Sisko (Avery Brooks) as a defense against another Federation threat, The Dominion, (from the Gamma Quadrant). Officially the USS Defiant was classed as an escort ship; unofficially it was a warship.

Stationed at space station Deep Space Nine, the USS Defiant protected the surrounding space including the planet Bajor and a nearby wormhole, a strategic shortcut in space to other unexplored parts of the galaxy.

To further protect the USS Defiant from straying enemy eyes, it was secretly equipped with Romulan invisibility cloaking devices that screened the ship from the scans of hostile ships.
