The USS Defiant, a Constitution-Class Heavy Command Cruiser, has been purpose built to explore the stars. Filled with many of the technological advantages of the USS Vengeance, the Defiant puts science and exploration first, boasting impressive databases, laboratories, and sensor facilities. The Constitution class’s versatility helps it fit most classes of mission and the Defiant has been outfitted for a lengthy trip away from the rest of the Federation. Its a good thing too. The Defiant’s mission is set to take her far outside of the support network and she’s going to face some significant threats.
The USS Defiant is assigned to explore the mysterious Volan Expanse, a largely untouched region which rests beyond the Federation-Klingon border region. The only significant Federation support is the new Starbase Arcadia. Similar in design to Starbase Yorktown, but smaller and nowhere near complete, the Starbase’s efforts will mostly be focused on construction, and will be able to lend little aid to the Defiant other than resupplying and shore leave.

The year is 2263. War looms on the Horizon.
The United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire have been rivals since the founding, resorting to military conflict on numerous occasions. Now the fires of war are burning again.
A border dispute has quickly spiraled out of controlling, leading to both sides of the border becoming militarized. Starfleet has had to pull its resources together to fortify the region.
Having survived their harrowing confrontation with the Volan Expanse entity, the newly refitted USS Defiant must balance their primary mission of exploration with the needs of the Federation.
The USS Defiant was been purpose built to explore the stars. Filled with all of the technological advantages of its time, the Defiant puts science and exploration first, boasting impressive databases, laboratories, and sensor facilities. However, she is also one of the most heavily armed ships in the fleet. The Constitution class’s versatility helps it fit most classes of mission. Its a good thing too. The Defiant’s mission is set to take her far outside of the Federation support network and she’s going to face some significant threats.
Starfleet’s attempt to focus on peaceful exploration is being put to the ultimate test. In this time of war, is there still room for peace?
