A Cardassian Guard science ship...I never thought I'd live to see the day! Sounds like you have a different relationship in mind between the military and scientists than I have in mind. (Or maybe it's not so different if this is an exception.)
I'm not sure what is that relationship in your mind, so I'm not sure how different they are.

In my universe a warship is a warship and its task isn't to study and explore. If there is something to study and explore, a special expedition is organised, but no warship is automatically assigned to it. It can be employed to transport scientists to wherever they need to go to do their study, taking necessary equipment aboard, but generally that is not their task and they are not prepared for a detailed scientific work. There even isn't such thing as a science officer on a warship. Any scientific and studying work falls into engineer's duties. If a specialist is needed, they need to send for one from Cardassia.

That closed door in Jarol's quarters is worrying me, though. Something bad must be happening in there.
Well, something is happening there.
