Is that why the Defiant always looked factory fresh and never had any battle scars?
First of all the Defiant was such a turd that it was mothballed for sucking for at least 3 years. Sisko was building that ship before he checked out and asked to be given a bullshit go nowhere assignment like Bajor.
If Sisko wasn't their God, forcing these people to admit into the UFP would have been impossible for him or anyone else because it was like a planet of nothing but frightened rescues scared of loud noises.
