Kira tells him it raises the warp drive efficientcy 30%. I can't wait for the new cannons, but if this is going to be a final and super accurate version of the defiant, 1 of 2 things should occur.
1. Give the ship 4 engineering consoles, 0 science consoles, 4 tactical consoles. The special quad cannons, and allow the ship to equip the special small vessle 360 degree firing arc phaser banks.
2. keep the current console set up with the quads, add a 5th foreward weapon slot, and a 4th rear weapon slot.
That would completely destroy balance between the other Escorts.

OMG I LOVE THAT INTERIOR! So psyched for it!

I hate having a huge ship interior on a tiny Defiant.

it's only listed as an escort. its a warship plain and simple. The lack of science consoles, and at most a single lt. science slot would make a differance. at that point a commander and lt. commander tac slot along with a lt. commander eng. slot and the ship is ready to roll!

IMHO all of the "escorts" are "warships", there's very few other purposes for the escorts than use in war.

What I said has to do with johnnymo0829 saying the Defiant is listed as an escort, but is really a warship.
