The Galor seems to be the mainstay of the Cardassian fleet, so I've
written it up as a pretty solid design. The fact that the Galor is weaker
than the big Federation and Klingon ships comes from "The Wounded",
when the Enterprise-D dealt with a Galor without any serious effort, and
"Sacrifice of Angels", when a pair of Galaxies blew the hell out of a Galor
in about five seconds flat. The Maquis have also been seen to give a Galor
a half-decent fight in Peregrines, which are about equal to a Starfleet
The fact that the Galors use phaser-type weapons comes from "Chain of
Command, II" in which Captain Jellico orders the Cardassian fleet to dump
their main phaser coils as they leave the nebula they're hiding in. I don'
think I've ever seen a Galor fire a torpedo, but I guess they must have
them so I put a couple on.
These days, I guess it's possible that the Galor is getting upgrades
from the Dominion to make it more of a real competitor, but I haven't seen
any evidence of this so far.
