the "ablative armor" that was added to the Defiant in season 4
Why should we think it was "added"?
I agree. My understanding is that the ablative armour was a standard feature that the Defiant had from the beginning.

Now you will, no doubt, find a way to disagree with me.

Re: Defiant - where is the airlock at the front?

Hey, disagreeing with myself is a favorite pastime of mine.

Let's see.. Ablative armor is news to Captain Benteen in "Paradise Lost". Doesn't mean it would be new, though. She (and Starfleet Operations) is just ill informed, is all.

Benteen also believes somebody "equipped" the hero ship with the armor. But since she and SF Ops are out of the loop, there's no way of telling when the equipping took place. And Benteen is being sarcastic anyway.

Ablative armor first explicitly saves the day in "Way of the Warrior". Doesn't mean it wasn't in place previously, though.

Naah, can't find a way to disagree. Sorry! In any case, I never disagree with me. See above.

I think ablative armor was first mentioned in the third season episode "Past Tense, Part I".
