The CDS Swift Striker was a Cardassian Galor class starship commanded by Gul Marak in 2370. When it approached Deep Space Nine it was directed to dock at Pylon 6 (or Lower Pylon 3), opposite the Kovassii ship that was docked at Upper Pylon 3. In order to have Marak's plan to blow up the station backfire, O'Brien and Odo took the bomb that was found on the station's antimatter containment pod and placed it on the Swift Striker's hull. When Marak triggered the bomb, the ship lost structural integrity and broke up. The crew managed to launch some lifepods. (DS9 novel: Betrayal)
- Curiously, Gul Marak referred to this ship as a dreadnought; perhaps to make it sound more intimidating.
