The Cardassian Keldon Cruiser is a Rear Admiral (Tier 6) Cruiser. This ship is available to all playable factions as a rare drop from the [Cardassian-Dominion Lock Box] on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and from an [Infinity Prize Pack - T6 Ship] on the PC. It can also be found on the exchange.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Originally built for the fearsome Obsidian Order in 2371, the Keldon-class Cruiser has become a long-serving mainstay of the Cardassian fleet.

The Cardassian Keldon Cruiser comes equipped with a [Console - Universal - Spiral Wave Disruptor Lance]. Activating this ability will deal very heavy Disruptor damage in a narrow cylinder. Affected enemies will also have their damage resistance significantly reduced and have a single random sub-system knocked offline for a brief period.

Alternative Variants[edit | edit source]

Class Information
The Galor-class is a versatile Cardassian-built cruiser with a long history, reaching back to the days of the Cardassian-Federation War. It is used by the Cardassian Union and the True Way Alliance.

The class has been built by the Cardassian Union for the last fifty years and served as the Cardassians' workhorse during the Dominion War. After the war, many of these ships were stolen by the True Way.

The Galor skin is unlocked for free.

The Keldon-class is a Cardassian-built battleship used by both the Cardassian Union and the True Way Alliance throughout the Cardassian Front. They have a similar design to the Galor Class, but are larger and slower.

The Keldon skin is unlocked for free, and can be used on the Cardassian Galor Cruiser provided the player owns the Cardassian Keldon Cruiser.

Standard configuration[edit | edit source]

Starships come with standard equipment and weapons of the lowest mark available at the ship's minimum rank. The items provided are appropriate to the type of vessel and its related playing style.

Scaling starship[edit source]

This starship's equipment slots, base hull capacity and shield capacity scale as your level increases.

Equipment slots[edit source]

As you rank up every 10 levels, up to level 40, the ship's forward weapon slots, aft weapon slots, tactical console slots, engineering console slots, and science console slots will slowly increase toward endgame capabilities:

Level Console tac icon.png Console eng icon.png Console sci icon.png Fore weapons Aft weapons
0-9 1 3 1 2 2
10-19 2 3 2 3 2
20-29 2 4 2 3 3
30-39 3 4 3 4 4
40+ 3 5 3

Hull strength[edit source]

This table shows how the ship's hull strength scales at each level. The base hull of all scaling starships is 10,000, which is then multiplied by the ship's hull modifier (1.25 for the Cardassian Keldon Cruiser), and then multiplied by the scaling multiplier below at each level.
