# 1 Shuttlebay on Defiant?
03-09-2012, 03:29 PM
I recently checked out the Defiant-class on Memory Alpha, and noticed it said it had some shuttlebays. My question is: Where is it? I know it's there. My eyes are probably just playing tricks on me and I can actually see it, but I just wanted to ask.

Thanks,

Dimitar

I see, it's on the bottom, but dimensions are not just right. It's fine, I can pretend, lol.

The shuttlebay in the defiant was a last minute addition when one of the producers told Doug Drexler that they wanted one. Doug said there was no where to put it (he'd already planned out the whole interior) but managed to find a spot. As such, inconsistencies abound.

Thank you, Mr. Taco! See, now I just gotta get that Chafee so I can use it on a Defiant.

I remember reading that, however it never made any sense that the shuttle bay was a last minute addition during season 6. The reason being is that the story that introduced us to the Defiant, and her class, at the start of season 3 also had some of the crew using shuttles when forced to abandon ship.

For reference it was these ones: http://drexfiles.wordpress.com/2009/...ugly-duckling/ So they must have at least made provisions for there to be a shuttle bay to begin with.

Thank you all, it makes much more sense now. Instead of a few shuttles, there is just one. Makes more sense.
