Galor Cruiser

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.

Design Notes:

The Galor is smaller than most other ships, and they aren't that effective against the other race's ships. Even the Defiant is seen blowing them up singlehandedly. They are a good, solid ship, and more balanced than most, but they rely heavily on proper use.

The Cardassian Galor is my favorite ship design from the Star Trek universe, with it and the Excelsior being a close second.
