Too lazy to quote multiple posts.
The warp field is generated by the nacelles not the core, the core just creates the power.
The defiant is the most advanced combat ship built by the federation (excluding the new classes introduced by criptic, I don't think even the sovereign class has ablative armor.
Every other class is useful in peace time the defiant is not (despite DS9's atempts other wise :p). The Akira is a peace time ship designed to be easily put in to a wartime role
The defiant took on and won a battle against a supped up excelsior class (ablative armor, enhanced phasers, quantum torpedoes) easily tier5
Final result is.... ITS A GAME !
