The USS Defiant (NX-74205) was the second Federation starship to bear the name, and the prototype of the Defiant class of starships.

The Defiant had been first designed in 2366 as a new ship to fight the threat of the Borg, although it was officially designated as an escort vessel. The ship had been built but the receding Borg threat, numerous flaws and the fact that it almost tore itself apart during test cruises, convinced Starfleet to put the project on hold. Benjamin Sisko became involved in the project after transferring to the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards after the destruction of the Saratoga at Wolf 359.

Soon after its arrival at DS9, the Defiant entered the Gamma Quadrant on a mission to open negotiations with the Founders of the Dominion. The starship came under attack by several Jem'Hadar ships and was boarded. The senior officers were taken to the Founders' homeworld and placed in a simulation by the Vorta Borath. Once Odo and Kira Nerys found them, the Founders allowed them to return home.
