Re: How powerful is a Galaxy class starship?

I don't think the Defiant-class had better weapons, per se, but it did have a lot of weapons crammed into a relatively small spaceframe. Its really only unique weapon were the forward phaser cannons, which had a very high yield of fire, but had a drawback in that they could only fire in one direction unlike TNG-style phaser arrays and even TOS-style phaser banks.
