The Hideki class patrol ship is a small, inexpensive vessel used by the Cardassians to police their space and as a scout vessel, though the Hideki's low speed limits her effectiveness in that role.

In the design of the Hideki class the Cardassians learned a lesson from their enemies, in this case from Starfleet's Defiant class. This is especially evident in the Hideki's nose section, which is identical in design to the Defiant's. The similarity goes as far as armour configuration, copied precisely from the Defiant class.

Following basic Cardassian design philosophy, the Defiant-shaped nose section houses the ship's main weapons, a disrupter cannon more powerful than a ship of this size would ordinarily carry and a single fire torpedo launcher. As a small ship, the Hideki is only equipped with 32 rounds. Four low power disrupter banks, equivalent to Starfleet's type VII phaser banks still used by the Miranda class, cover other firing arcs.

Hideki class vessels are seldom used outside Cardassian space. They are not designed for long duration missions and cannot cover large distances unsupported. They can be used to cover larger vessels in major fleet engagements, however, as evidenced during the Dominion war.

It was also during the brief alliance with the Dominion that the Hideki received its most important upgrade. Being roughly the same size as the Jem'Hadar attack ship, the same type of shield grid was installed on the Hideki to make the vessel more durable. An upgraded, more efficient power core allowed a second disrupter cannon to be fitted to the rear of the vessel, significantly improving the Hideki's firing arcs.

Today, the Hideki is classed as low priority on the maintenance and upgrade schedule but, while unable to stand up to capital ships, groups of theses vessels continue to render effective service. Hideki class vessels are especially dangerous to fighter craft.
