Is the Fleet Defiant worth getting?

Got the fleet Defiant myself about a week ago, I am not disappointed. Just like my Defiant-R but just a hair more tanky and a good chunk more DPS. If you can afford the $25, its a nice ship to have. Depending on your playstyle, though, quite a few people seem to recommend the fleet patrol escort instead. If you enjoy flying the Defiant class, I don't think you will be disappointed.
I'd agree that it's probably more worth it to get the account unlock from the C-Store ship and then get the fleet as needed if you intend to fly it on multiple toons.
And of course, even though a lot of people consider the cloak a wasted console slot, you won't get the console on the fleet Defiant, only on the C-Store version, so if the cloak is important, thats the only way to go.
And no, the Sao Paolo does not count for a module discount. You do get the quad phasers I think, but unless you're building an RP ship you probably don't need them.
