Notes : The Son'a operate two major ship classes, a large Battleship type and this Destroyer. The Destroyer is a much smaller vessel designed for general purpose combat duties. The ship has an armament comparable to Federation designs of the same size, except in its use of subspace weaponry. The Destroyer mounts a single launcher for Isolitic devices, of which it carries twenty in all.

The Federation gathered considerable information on this vessel during the brief alliance with the Son'a, and this proved to be highly useful when they allied themselves with the Dominion in the latter stages of the war. Starfleet was able to take a heavy toll on the Destroyers, accounting for almost half the total number.
