Commenting on the Defiant: I forget where it was said, but the Defiant's hull shape and integrated nacelles were supposed to have caused instabilities in the warp field and put a fairly large amount of strain on the ship's structure when flying at higher warp speeds which was one of the reasons that it was assigned directly to a starbase like DS9 and spent a significant amount of its time docked instead of being constantly out and about in the Gamma quadrant like a Galaxy or Excelsior would have.
