The Toran class transport was a non-combat ship that was used by the Cardassian Union.
The Toran served a vital support function in the expansion of the Cardassian state as they carried ground forces to enemy planets to conquer. As such, they possessed little in the way of weaponry and had to follow escort ships into enemy territory. When deprived of friendly combat ships, these transports were easy targets to their enemies. These ships possessed a modular hull which could be dismantled and used to produce the primary components of outposts or starbases.
A type II model was later produced and improved the defenses of these ships.
