I almost forgot this one.

The expected Diplomatic capacity, standard quarters and science labs of the standard Intrepid-Class have been removed in favor of "assault transport" options such as an entire deck dedicated to The Starfleet Marines' requirements.
- 'Tactical' Holosuite (a.k.a. 'Mark 2' Stellar Cartography),
- Transporter Room
- Ordinance Locker,
- (Defiant-Class) bunk-style quarters, et al.

The Defiance has been permanently assigned to protecting The Guardian of Forever & "Gateway Station" in orbit.
Only 3 ships of this type have been converted from their original Intrepid-Class layout since their completion at Utopia Planetia (circa 2377).
The Defiance-Class has significantly fewer crew and no such options as Kes' "Horticultural Lab".
Instead, the Defiance-Class has a dormant / redundant secondary warp core (slightly higher rated type/class than a Danube-Class runabout,) set-up to draw power from the dorsal third nacelle.
Dedicated deuterium/anti-matter storage tanks that also draw their power from interacting directly with the third nacelle. A system designed to kick-in (as necessary) to power shields, life-support & other auxiliary / emergency back-up systems, (or the phaser lance when required) so they don't suck essential power from the main core, under normal circumstances.
Which, of course, all provides one HELL of an unforgettable wake-up call during "Self-Destruct".
She's a rottweiller on steroids, specifically designed to face-down anyone from The Klingons, Krenim, and The Romulans, straight through to The Borg.
