The Buran-class Dreadnought Cruiser is a powerful frontline vessel, ready to lead from the frontline of whatever conflict it finds itself in. Affectionately dubbed the "Battleaxe" by Starfleet engineers, its powerful hull integrity and shield generators help ensure the safety of all aboard, and its cruiser communications array can help direct the flow of any battle. Other space in its deflector array goes towards enhanced battlefield awareness and coordination, and towards a “resonant ionization circuit”. The rest of the starship is focused on bringing guns to bear on the targets it designates as its own.

The Cardenas class was one of the largest ship types utilized by Starfleet in mid 23rd century. The design featured a large oval saucer connected to four warp nacelles by a small engineering hull. The U.S.S. Buran captained by Gabriel Lorca was a vessel of this class.
