The USS Defiant (NX-74205) was a 24th century Federation starship, a Vigilant-class tactical escort in Starfleet service in the 2390s and 2400s decades. It was the third ship to bear the USS Defiant name with the NX registry number.

Service history and disposition[edit | edit source]

The Vigilant class was developed in the 2390s decade.

The Defiant was launched alongside the Vigilant-class prototype USS Vigilant (NCC-94794) in the year 2394.

It performed maneuvers in planetary orbit somewhere in the Sirius sector block in 2409. (STO mission: "Ships of the Line")

In that year, it was replaced by the third Defiant successor, the USS Defiant-C,[1] while its predecessor USS Defiant[2]remained attached to Deep Space 9. (STO - Cardassian Struggle missions: "The Tribble with Klingons", "Jabberwocky")
