See I always thought that the ships like Defiant are used perhaps in short durations, and have a base to come back to. The reason for this is because they are fairly small and are basically bare-bones in terms of recreation facilities/space. For example, yes the Defiant could go explore, as could the Yellowstone-class Runabouts, but they had a base (DS9, for example), to come back to and the people using them would have quarters on that base.
I think I could see the larger escorts exploring, but the Defiant and it's sister ships are a little too small, aren't they?
