The Astika-class was a class of heavy battlecruiser and artillery vessel fielded by the Vaadwaur Supremacy in the 25th century. (STO video game: Delta Rising)


During the Vaadwaurs' attempt to reconquer the Delta Quadrant in the 2400s this class was often seen serving in the role of a battleship. A number of them took part in the invasion of the Turei homeworld in 2410. (STO - "The Delta Quadrant" mission: "Revelations")

Gaul, the leader of the Supremacy, kept his flag aboard one such vessel, VSW Vozroz. Another fought against the Turei and two Alpha Quadrant Alliance vessels including USS Voyager in the Entaba system. (STO mission: "All that Glitters")

More Astika-class ships engaged an AQA fleet in the Orlitus system. (STO mission: "Capture the Flag")

Numerous Astika-class ships appeared for a Vaadwaur rally in the Kartella system. (STO mission: "Revolution")

During Eldex's subsequent rebellion against Gaul, the forces loyal to Gaul fielded a number of heavy artillery vessels against the Delta Alliance invasion of Vaadwaur Prime. (STO mission: "Takedown")
