The USS Defender was a Defender-class bomber operated by the Federation Starfleet in the 2250s of the Kelvin timeline. The Defender was part of the Starfleet force that battled starships of the Romulan Star Empire in the 2250s. (TOS video game: D-A-C)
- D-A-C gives no date, but as it features the USS Enterprise it is presumably set after the events of Star Trek, which featured the launch of the Enterprise in 2258.
- In D-A-C starship names are selected and allocated at random. The game features eleven Federation starship names which are assigned randomly to all classes of ships in the game. The Defender is therefore also known as the name of vessels of the four other Starfleet classes in the game.
