Keldon-class warships were a type of starship introduced by the Cardassian Union in the late 2340s decade. (DS9 episodes: "Defiant", "The Die is Cast")

History and specificationsEdit

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. Starfleet 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. (Decipher RPG module: Starships)

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. (CCG set: The Dominion, card: ".."[citation needed], DS9 episode: "Defiant")

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. (ST video game: Armada II)
