Keldon class warships were introduced by the Cardassian Union in the late 2360s, enlarging and improving upon the successful Galor-class design to better counter a new generation of designs by the Federation's Starfleet and other antagonistic states. Starfleet first encountered these vessels in 2371, by which time the Cardassians had built a considerable number of these ships. The Keldons were the top Cardassian ships of the Dominion War.

Some variants of the Keldon class starships possessed cloaking devices. They were also capable of overloading their own plasma banks to create more powerful weapon discharges. (TNG video game: Armada II)

The Keldon-class was a warship utilised by the Cardassian Union during the 24th century. The class was heavily based off the Galor-class, with the major differences been extensions to the upper main body and the aft of the vessel. It was also more heavily armed and armoured then the Galor-class, making it one of the most powerful warships in the Cardassian military.
