The Kraxon was a Cardassian Galor-class cruiser that was in service with the Cardassian military in the late 24th century. In 2371, the Kraxon was under the command of Gul Ranor.
In that year, the Kraxon was one of the ships assigned to follow the USS Defiant when it was hijacked by the Maquis.
Gul Dukat later ordered the Kraxon to extend its shields around the Defiant during a face-off with two Keldon-class warships, later found to be sent by the Obsidian Order. The Kraxon then took Thomas Riker into Cardassian custody. (DS9: "Defiant")
According to the script for this episode, the pronunciation for Kraxon was "KRACKS-on".
