There is a lot of on screen evidence to show that the defiant was actualy meant to be an 8 deck ship. The map in the turbolifts shows 8 decks. The window configuration hinted at something much larger than 4 or 5 decks and flying along side a Miranda class, the defiant certainly looked big enough for 8 decks.
So, here is what an 8 deck defiant MSD might look like. Extra large as a christmas treat to anyone watching.
This is a very popular ship. It’s the ultimate in badassery. A Starfleet borg buster that defies starfleets design conventions in its design. The official MSD took the shape of the ships side profile, and not its centerline, which others MSDs had. So, I have decided to take the ships center line, but remain true to the established interior of the official MSD. As you will see, there is a big difference. There are 5 easter eggs included. 3 graphical and 2 spelling easter eggs (in homage to an old friend who always left out one particular letter in his spelling)
