The Galor Cruiser is the workhorse cruiser of the Cardassian Empire. Though technologically inferior to the ships of the neighboring Federation and Klingon empires, the Cardassians made up for the failing by producing Galor Cruisers in bulk. If their cruiser could not be of higher quality then they would make sure that they always had the advantage of greater quantities.
Overall, the Galor is an effective cruiser hull, though smaller than its contemporaries. The major advantage of the hull is its forward mounted compressor beam, a strong energy beam capable of doing extraordinary levels of damage. The compressor beam suffers from a long recharge time, however, leaving the Galor relatively defenseless for four turns.
