I know you're not interested but the Excelsior has 30 phaser banks, had the Lakota used more than 3 of those the Defiant would have been toast with little to no damage to the Lakota, add the 4 quantum launchers she had (2 per end) then the Defiant would have been spacedust.

if you're going to use the Defiant vs Lakota argument then please do your research at least.
