A bug that involved Romulan Liberated Borg captains and their skills once they chose an ally
Some characters were stuck in a loading screen with a "Server Not Responding" message
I picked Monitor due to some fan-fic I had worked on a few years back, and a WIP book. Monitor just sort of resonated with the character. Anyway, plenty to choose from that would fit well for a Defiant
Well, being an amateur historian, I enjoy using historical names for swards / weaponry. Since the Defiant is for all purposes a war ship, I find these to be the most fitting. I’d post mine, but I get annoyed when I see 3 – 4 D-R’s running a similar name during an instance.
My first D-R name was Gladius followed by second - Maniple. I started seeing both names a lot so I switched to a new name, which is a little more esoteric.
I recommend doing some research if you don’t like seeing a bunch of ships named the same as yours. However, that doesn’t stop anyone from seeing you fly by and liking your name; then taking it for their own.
Some names that come to mind with about the same feel as Defiant.
I would say Reliant, but I stay away from well know Star Trek ship names. Swords names are good and the names of famous war battles can sometimes work. If all else fails I start looking up the names of gods or mythological characters. There is a good variety of war god names from various cultures.
All of my escorts are named after bladed weapons. Although I was thinking about and all cannon Defiant-R build and renaming it after a howitzer, but the latest type of howitzer in use is the M777 and AFAIK there is no cool nickname for it.
edit to add:
