I personally prefer the patrol escort (I have both). It has a lot more survivability -- 4x the crew (which helps all Team abilities), the ensign slot is Engineering (a third tac slot is kind of wasted), more hull.

It doesn't LOOK so much more, but I find in STFs my defiant dies a lot when I can't manage aggro (and, of course, none of the cruisers are equipped to attract it), patrol escort does much better.


In PvP, I suppose cloak and a little more maneuverability is nice, but... eh.
