Notes : Information regarding the Dominions shipbuilding activities during the war is never likely to be complete, but some facts are known. In 2374 the Dominion was rumoured to be working on a large Battleship design, and this was confirmed when the USS Valiant was destroyed while engaging such a ship. It was feared that this vessel would go into series production, but in fact this vessel remains the only known example of its kind.

However, the Dominion was not finished with Battleship production. When the Allied fleet advanced on Cardassia at the end of the war, the fleet which gathered to meet them included several examples of a new and much larger vessel, the Dreadnought. These ships are amongst the largest known at almost five kilometres; in design they are an almost direct scale up of the Battleship prototype, to which they are externally identical in every respect except that of scale. Internal details are unknown, but it can be expected that three or four decks have been substituted for each one, with the deck height increased or reduced as needed to fit the design. Comparisons between the Klingon K'Vort and B'Rel classes are inevitable, and much of Starfleets more conjectural data on the class is based on assumptions derived from the Klingon model.

The Dominion forces surrendered before the Allies had to engage these ships, and as a result little is known for certain regarding their capabilities. Starfleet has published estimated figures in some fields, notably weaponry and defensive systems, based on known Dominion technology and practices.

The Dreadnoughts returned to Dominion space via the wormhole with the rest of the Dominion fleet.
