Interesting. The Defiant did have a small shuttle bay bottom center, but I thought the front end was where the mess hall was. There was an episode when an unexploded Dominion torpedo penetrated the hull there, but I never thought that whole structure in the front was a "warhead" of any kind.
Yeah, me too. Apparently, one of the novelisations has the warhead nose as a plot point. However, as it contains the main deflector array, it effectively screws the ship from travelling at warp. Bit of a design flaw I'd say.
