Designer Notes: By far, the Defiant is one of the HARDEST ships to design - and designing it in the FASA universe doesn't make it any easier. The only real hard source for data is the DS9 Tech book - a manual that is fraut with inaccuracy, errors and even self-contradictions. I've used several other sources to try and flesh this vessel out - but in the end, I don't think anyone will sure exactuly what the stats SHOULD be.

Game Mechanics Stats: Torpedo launches can use either FWT-6 or the FP-30. The FQT-6 has a significantly limited torpedo availability. Referee's should establish the total number of FQT-6 torpedoes usable by the Federation player. the FP-30 should have no such restriction. For game balance, only Quantor Torpedoes or Photon Torpedoes may be used during any one turn. Federation players may switch between the two at the beginning of any turn, but may not switch during that turn.
