She may look small, but she’s got teeth. In our latest video, Lead 3D Artist Allen White and Lead Game Designer Tim Crosby reveal and discuss the USS Defiant.

It’ll be interesting to see how they balance such a combat focused ship. I expect you’ll get some sort of penalty to missions involving science or diplomatic based solutions, perhaps?

I would guess the same.  Small crew, no cargo capacity, shorter range, no science labs, no VIP quarters, limited engineering spaces, small sick bay(no solving planetary plagues).

The Defiant class has pulse cannons and phaser emitters.

Fun to get a little look at “Alpha Gameplay” battle. Really nice graphics. My personal preference is more toward a balanced build, but the battle-specialists will have fun with this little tiger!

This looks awesome. Every ship and every character revealed so far looks fantastic. I hope to get it all in the game when its play time finally. Definitely could see quite a bit of folks using this in fleet alliance play a lot.

Great reveal!  Great looking Defiant model and the cloaking ability will be a fun added tactical bonus.
