The concept of Starfleet is of a deep space exploratory and the defence service for the United Federation of Planets; a union based on equality, the sharing of knowledge, science, technology, resources and a mutual defence of the borders making up the Federation presence in the Alpha and Beta quadrants. During times of peace, Starfleet's principal function is advancing the wealth of knowledge this partnership influences, making new discoveries, seeking out new life, and extending the hand of diplomacy wherever it can.

However, the Dominion War and the invasion of the Borg brought Starfleet technology into a new realm — the heavy-hitting warships to defend and protect. 

In our group, we have several of these powerful starships; some relics of the war that's been and gone, others designed for the region of space they operate in, each with their reasons for existing in the galaxy in the run up to 2400. Designed for warfare and combat, these vessels are the last line of defence against those who would invade the Federation and threaten the inherent peace cultivated within the territory. With a selection of ships ranging from battleships to cruisers, escorts to destroyers, when a hostile alien force comes knocking on the door, Starfleet is ready to execute that defence policy. 

So, with that in mind, this week we want to know which of these ships under the warship classification packs the most punch for you. Which of these ships is winging in to defend your Federation from the terrors of the deep?

There's just something so beautiful about the Akira class.

Defiant. The first purpose built warship, and the best.

Although I don’t really like the looks of the Defiant it’s got to win this. It’s the first purpose built combat ship and with its small size (in comparison) it is relatively easy to build in large amounts. It’s got a big punch!

I just have this feeling that if a Galaxy come to save the day, day WOULD be saved so... :P

I know there are tougher ships, but it has to be the Galaxy for me. The way they were shown to be the backbone in the Dominion War, oof. *chef's kiss*

Intrepid class.

Because then I could look out the porthole and go "it's Janeway! - get the coffee ready".

Specs wise, we'd probably toast haha

I gotta go with the Sovereign Class. They can take a licking and keep on ticking while pounding on the bad guys.

I always liked the Akira, but when it comes to ships in it for the fight, Defiant all day for me!

its built to kick you in the teeth and get out of the way if retaliation, fast, and packs a huge punch for its size. The first to mount a whole host of new Starfleet weapons.

I went with the Odyssey Class. I remember when they first introduced that into the STO universe. It was spine chilling. With eighteen type-14 phaser emitters; six quantum torpedo launchers it is perhaps the most equipped ship in the Fleet.
