Nothing in that article precludes the possibility that elements of the final Defiant design were not inspired either consciously or subconsciously from the Leif Ericson or its concept art, or a dozen other sources for that matter.
But you can see in the preliminary designs how the shapes started to evolve. The design didn't start as a stripped down form of the Leif. Each piece evolved independently and only came together as the Defiant.
