Originally designed as a fast patrol vessel and introduced in 2366, the original Hideki-Class Patrol ship served the Cardassian Empire well, being fast and cheap to manufacture, reliable in service and quick to repair. Fast and maneuverable at impulse, it proved useful as a commerce raider, particularly when a Cloaking Device was added to some of them. During the war, it was usually faced by the Klingon B’Rel-Class and the Federation Defiant-Class, both of which had significantly more firepower than it, nevertheless, it served well and used its maneuverability to keep from being overwhelmed.

After the war, the type would have been honourably retired except for the moratorium on new ship construction. Thus it was repeatedly upgraded until the decision was made in 2391 to begin the arduous task of upgrading all the various forms of Hideki-Classes to the standard Hideki II-Class.

Now with a good quality cloaking device, updated (but somewhat underpowered) weapons and shields and an improved computer core, the type is somewhat limited by its slow Warp Engines and now outdated sensor systems.
