Galor-class cruisers were the primary class of warship used by the Cardassian military during the latter half of the 24th century. The Galor-class shared the same basic superstructure as their Keldon-class counterparts, but were used far more frequently by the Cardassian military.
Commonly referred to as “warships” or “war vessels”, this class was also designated by the Cardassians and the Maquis as “cruisers”. The Federation Alliance was also known to classify them as “destroyers.”
The arsenals of Galor-class warships vary, though typically they are armed with numerous phaser arrays. Although the Galor-class vessels were decidedly inferior to the Federation’s Galaxy-class starships, they proved to be very effective against Miranda-class and other older Federation starships. These ships were often seen operating in squadrons of three, possibly to make up for their tactical weaknesses compared to contemporary warships of other interstellar powers.
