The U.S.S. Defiant NX-74205 is the Borg-fighting starship introduced in Deep Space Nine’s 3rd season to take on the threat of the Dominion (and to provide the show with more stories set off the space station).
Released in 1997, today’s Ornament-a-Day entry features string-powered lights but no sound. The ship’s deflector array glows blue, while it’s warp nacelles feature the familiar Federation red. Size-wise, she’s larger than her Star Trek sister ships and stands out more on the Geek Tree as a result. Her low profile allows her to nestle in among the tree boughs, but her bright lights cause her to stand out no matter where she is in the tree.
