Description:

The Pro'met Battlecruiser is an expensive hull that was only put into production due to the conflict with the Federation. A major alteration to the basic Galor design, the addition of a second command hull facing aft with a pair of light compressors makes the hull more able to face Federation starships on a ship to ship basis.

After the Federation conflict ended, this ship often served as a command ship in Cardassian fleets until the production of larger ships in the 2360's and 70's. When the Keldon and other hulls appeared this ship was relegated to providing little more than extra firepower to Galor Cruiser squadrons. However, during the war with the Klingons, Bird of Prey type ships found it easy to find arcs where no heavy weapons could be brought to bear. Once the Klingons adopted tactics to exploit these blind spots, Pro'mets fell rapidly to Klingon forces.

By the time of the Dominion War the Pro'met was out of production, and there are no plans for production runs in the future.

Design Notes:


The Pro'met is an early capital ship design that can deliver some heavy firepower to early Cardassian fleets, but their
glass sides make them very vulnerable to enemy strafing runs. In campaign battles or scenarios where warp engines are
relevant, this design flaw makes the Pro'met's warp engines especially vulnerable to being destroyed, stranding the ship on
the battlefield.
