The other Defiant by thefirstfleet The other Defiant by thefirstfleet
I was browsing through some Trek material, and I found a single top view of the original Defiant concept. I fell in love with the design, for it is much more like a Starfleet ship. So I built her, it took most of the day. Due to the single view, I based the rest upon the FC flat ships.

Before you ask, she does look a bit like the Nova, given that this design was dusted off for the VOY episode.

And being the crazy man I am, I decided to set this ship as the official Polarisverse Defiant. So, this was the approved design of the Borg buster escort-warship, and a certain Commander Jared Colson probably had a hand in the design.

She will be released during my next release spree...





Model by me

In my personal opinion, I like the main defiant better. It has more of a warship type look to it while this one looks like a sort of science vessel (like a nova). Still I do like the angle of the shot, and that this one has a nice look to it.

I know that, but if this could be refined to look more warlike...

That's interesting.

I wonder why they went with the grungier style.

I guess the real one matched the space-station itself more... come to think of the station itself never looked particularly starfleety

But remember, DS9 was originally a Cardassian station named Terok Nor!

OK, that makes sense. I had a feeling I had my facts screwy!
