The U.S.S. Defiant (formerly U.S.S. Sao Paulo) is a Defiant-class escort and the successor to the prototype that was originally launched in 2370 under the command of Commander Benjamin Sisko, then-commanding officer of Deep Space 9. The prototype fought in the Dominion War and was eventually destroyed at the Second Battle of Chin'toka, after which the U.S.S. Sao Paulo was renamed and redeployed at DS9 shortly after its creation in 2375 in honor of the Defiant.

In 2409, James Kurland is in command of DS9 and the Defiant.


  • Following the destruction of the original U.S.S. Defiant in 2375, the U.S.S. Sao Paulo (NCC-75633) is launched from Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards and renamed U.S.S. Defiant. It participates in the Battle of Cardassia, the final battle of the war.
  • 2403: James Kurland is assigned to DS9, and takes command of the Defiant as well.
  • By 2409 the Defiant is still in service, and still assigned to DS9.
