The Sartan class was a 24th century Cardassian starship type, a destroyer class in Cardassian High Command, Cardassian Defense Force and Kentar's Rebellion service in the 2370s decade. These fast-attack ships were designed for speed and offensive firepower but could not take heavy punishment in battle due to their light shielding. (ST video game: Armada II)

Service history and disposition[]

The Cardassian High Command deployed ships of this class in the 24th century, by the 2370s decade. (ST video game: Armada II)

During the Klingon-Cardassian War of 2372, Sartan-class destroyers were part of the Screaming Furies battalion. The Screaming Furies were one of the few battalions that repelled the attacking Klingons, and the only one to remain unscathed. Captain Bel Roklan attributed that the skill of the female Cardassian pilots flying the Sartans.

When rumors about retiring the Sartan class emerged, Captain Roklan addressed a legate in personal correspondence to request leaving the Sartans to the Screaming Furies, due to their prowess in wartime. (Star Trek Adventures module: Alpha Quadrant Sourcebook)

In the aftermath of the Dominion War, the Cardassian Defense Force kept Sartan-class destroyers in service. In 2377, they were manufactured on Cardassian shipyards alongside other small and medium ship classes. Gul Kentar, who led uprising against the Klingon Defense Force occupying the Cardassian Union, used ships of this class until his defeat by Chancellor Martok, son of Urthog.
