The Defiant-class was one of many new Starfleet classes developed in response to the Borg threat following Starfleet's tragic losses in the Battle of Wolf 359. The class was the first Starfleet ever developed purely as a warship but following the Borg's early incursions the expected Borg Invasion never materialised and the prototype USS Defiant spent much of its time in space dock in the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards. Rising hostilities with the Dominion spurred the Defiant into full service and was assigned to Deep Space 9 in 2371 and fitted with a Romulan Cloaking Device to defend the station from Dominion attack and conduct undercover operations in the Gamma Quadrant.
