#OnThisDay (2003): papercraft Star Trek Deep Space Nine U.S.S. Defiant NX-74205

Although the Federation's Starfleet is a peaceful organization, they often encounter hostile alien species, so their starships are all equipped with the best defensive technology and weapons for protection.

But when in The Next Generation episode Q Who? the U.S.S. Enterprise encounters the Borg for the first time, it is clear that a new, more heavily armed starship is needed to counter this new threat.

This new class of starships would be the Defiant-class, but when new Borg attacks stayed out, the project was mothballed by Starfleet Command.

And so the U.S.S. Defiant would have remained at the Utopia Planetia shipyards, if not a few years later commander Benjamin Sisko who helped develop the experimental warship, would have taken it to the frontline in Deep Space Nine's Dominion War...

Like most of my Star Trek papercraft models, my papercraft U.S.S. Defiant is hand drawn and coloured in aquarel, but there are also 2 digital redraws (by Bill Perry and Bones McCoy) available.
