The Keldon-class cruiser was a class of Cardassian warship utilized by the Cardassian military during the 2370s. The Keldon hull was similar to the Galor-class spaceframe, with additions to the aft end and main body.
History and specifications Edit
The Keldon series enlarged and improved upon the successful Galor-class design to better counter a new generation of designs by the Federation's Starfleet and other antagonistic states. The Allies first encountered these vessels in the year 2371, by which time the Cardassians had built a considerable number of these ships. The Keldons were the top Cardassian ships of the Dominion War.
The Keldon advanced was a faster variant of the Galor-class. These improved ships were under the command of the Obsidian Order who based them in the Orias system. Some variants of the Keldon class starships possessed cloaking devices. They were also capable of overloading their own plasma banks to create more powerful weapon discharges.
