stahl has hinted that they might release the chafee for one. Being a defiant flyer I am starting to get excited about the next featured series. Dstahl's posts and the ask cryptic has just given me more of that "kid in the candy store giddy" feeling.
Yeah, it's the clunky little shuttle with Defiant style nacelles. He hinted at some point that it may be a package deal with the Defiant variant the way D'kyr owners get the Tal'kyr. At this point it's really the only thing we "know" about the ship - we don't know if it's a skin (we do know a lot of new skins have been and are being made, Tribble and Foundry bugs have leaked a few for both factions), a different Boff layout, a different special power, or what.
I'd prefer they fix the decloaking bug, fix the "hitting the invisible ceiling / floor in space" and give us a real cloak - not a half crippled pseudo-cloak. Would also be great if they gave us the weapon loadouts of the actual ST canon Defiant class starship.
Well, the canon Defiant had two quantum torpedoes and four phaser cannons (i.e. two dual cannons) forward, and two visible but never used torpedo launchers and one or two beam arrays aft (and since the beam arrays only had dorsal/ventral firing ranges, a single beam array accurately recreates them in game).
The only thing about the Defiant that can't be matched pretty much strict canon in game is firing both torpedo launchers at once.
