The size is a bit much if so, yes. But the design is a nice expansion on the Galor aesthetic.

It looks like an angler fish hunting Dominion battleships.

But I do not dislike it. Scale it down a bit, and it works in the context of Card design.

Good God, the Huet's a little much if those are Galors in the foreground. Thing must be ten kilometers long. And four tall.
The Hutet is only 1.6km long, so think Imperial Star Destroyer in terms of length.

^I was only off by an order of magnitude.

So the little ship directly in front of it is not a Galor, right?

The ships on the bottom right and left are Galors but the two ships up towards the middle of the image are not. They are Norin class ships, which were also created specifically for the game. They are around the 280 m mark.

The image isn't done strictly to scale but to instead convey that the Hutet is a large and powerful warship.

That image is one that I like very much indeed. I think the Huet is a great design and it is something different for the Cardassians. The Huet is used to intimidate subject systems and enemies of the Union. However for various reasons it could not be built until the Dominion arrived with more advanced ship building systems. I still prefer the Kuilnor and the Galor types personally.

It makes sense that the Dominion would help the Cardassians build their own dreadnought if they're already helping them crank out bazillions of Galors, too.

Not a huge fan of Cardassian ships either. I like the Dominion ones, especially the smaller warships for neatness, and the huge ones from the Valiant for... taking names and taking out punks.

^ I don't like the little Bug ships but the Jemmy Battleship is a pretty good ship design. It also taught some starfleeters a little lesson in humility, which could only be a good thing

You Cardassians are all alike, Damar.

Agreed about SF!

I'll admit I may just like the Bug ships because I like purple... and bugs.
But that's a good reason to like a ship, right?

Pointless nitpicking: It's Hutet not Huet.

I'm a fan of Cardassian ship designs, especially the Galor and Keldon classes. They've just got something "alien" to them. Like a bloated fish soaring through the sky ready to rain death down upon anyone who opposes them! Did anyone else notice that there's a big door on the bow's ventral side that looks like it could be a shuttle bay or maybe a troop loading ramp (if the Galor could land?). Yeah, I'm going a bit fanboyish here, but wouldn't that be cool to see? It probably makes more sense to transport people down though...
