The Gor Taan-class was a type of battle cruiser used by the Breen Confederacy during the 24th century.

The Gor Taan was an unusual design when compared to designs fielded by its neighbors. The ship was made up of five major assemblies of four crescent shaped spars that were connected by a central crescent shaped crossbar that ran from port to starboard. The main and largest spar sat on the top of the crossbar and contained the bridge and the ship's major systems. The other three were roughly the same size and were connected to the port and starboard of the crossbar and on its ventral side. At the end of each spar were the ship's main weapons, a disruptor cannon and a torpedo launcher. The central spar also included the Breen's energy dissipator weapon.

The ship had a dual warp propulsion system with the nacelles integrated into the outer edges of the port and starboard spars and a smaller secondary nacelle aft of these spars. They were fed by two warp cores located in the main the ventral spars. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)

The ship's unusual design proved to be a weakness. Federation Alliance forces found that once the ship's shields were pierced that they could relatively easily snap the crossbar and break the ship apart. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon; DS9: "The Changing Face of Evil")

Many of these vessels took part in the final weeks of the Dominion War.
