size and stuff, we already have (mostly). and FYI, the length of the defiant is still rather debatable. major kira stated it was 180, whereas a behind the scenes on the defiant, as well as math related to the model, states 120 (or i may have these two numbers backwards, i forget now.) it all depends what makes a source canon to you. in the show, or behind the scenes?
the warp core and all that is a bit old news, seeing as how we have MK12 now, which is alot better then MK7, though if you really want a MK7 warp core on your defiant, go right ahead.
no way in hell is the defiant getting a shuttle. no. way. in. hell. EVER.
the only thing i can think of as an upgrade is the cloak. yeah, the first defiant had a cloak. woopie. the C-store variant has a cloak not because the romulans keep loaning ones to the federation, but because select federation ships are designed to equip them (ie. galaxy X, avenger, defiant.) and therefore, the federation designed a basic cloak for use on these ships. this cloak cannot compete with the experience and skill the romulans have with cloak, and since the original defiant was destroyed, starfleet no longer has a cloak to study. since they were allies with the romulans when the first defiant was around, i doubt starfleet tried to really study it do to their agreements with the romulans over not only that cloak, but also federation cloaking at all.
therefore, no battlecloak for feddies. sorry, no upgrade.
some of the old stuff just iignore but the cloaking device and the 2 danubes would be awesome
these are the acctuall specs for the defiant I would like these upgrades ASAP please
some of those details are incorrect, the defiant couldnt store 2 danubes even if it wanted to, its got enough for a small 2 man shuttlecraft and thats it. the defiant doesnt have photon launchers and the cloaking device like the ablative generator are additionals that were clearly after the design as a number of times in ds9 there were references to the defiant having technology others didnt know about or just suspected. the cloak is also an enhanced version at the least, its shown one time that right after the defiant threw a few volleys of phaser fire out it cloaked moments after, the cloak on sto couldnt do that until red alert ended. i also seem to remember the defiant has enough capacity to take 80 crewmen however tech books put that at 40 crewmen. so whatever the case pointing from details like that is about as accurate at the star trek galaxy maps, which are not that accurate either.
