We are pleased to announce that concurrent with the launch of the Valiant Class Tactical Escort (T6), we will be releasing an update to Star Trek Online’s Defiant-class model as well. This new model has been completely rebuilt to faithfully replicate the heroic filming miniature used on the television show Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
To faithfully create the unique color scheme seen on the hull of the Defiant, we have added a new paint pattern for tactical escorts named “Defiant”. It is the default option for the Defiant preset but can also be combined with other patterns by using the Advanced menu in the Starship Customization screen.
This update will be automatic and free for all versions of the Tactical Escort, including, of course the new Valiant class. Players already using the Defiant-class model on an existing ship may need to visit the tailor and select the “Defiant” preset in order for some of the new details to appear.
The Defiant is a “tough little ship” that helped win the Dominion War in the 2370s and Tactical Escorts have proved just as vital to the Iconian War of 2410. Now we hope you enjoy another remastered Star Trek favorite as you and your crew embark into the New Dawn!
