The Vanguard Fleet is the personal detachment of Dominion starships and soldiers that accompany the changeling known as Odo. As one of the few Founders with an affinity for life as a solid, he has been placed in command of this fleet in an effort to combat the re-emerging Hur'q threat.
The Jem'Hadar Vanguard Dreadnought Cruiser frequently acts as the flagship for Dominion fleets, as this commanding starship is just as suited to frontline assaults as it is to leading its fellow starships in strategic strikes from a position of authority.

Surpassing in size the Dreadnought Carrier seen during the Dominion War, the Vanguard Dreadnought Cruiser is an imposing addition to the Dominion fleet. Large heavy plating protects the belly of the ship and massive weapons pods slung under its wings imply the heavy arsenal a ship of this size carries. A ship of this class served as Odo's Flagship during the Hur'q conflict.
