Galor class

A Cardassian Galor-class destroyer

In starship classification, a destroyer was a type of warship with moderate capabilities. The term was originally used for naval vessels.

During World War II, Alicia Travers' husband served on a destroyer stationed in the Pacific Ocean. (ENT: "Storm Front")

Following naval tradition, the difference in a destroyer and a destroyer escort is denoted by the vessel's size, armament, and mission, with a destroyer escort being the smaller of the two. Although no direct reference to these classifications are made in Star Trek lore, it can be assumed that the same would hold true in the Federation and elsewhere.
According to The Making of Star Trek, Captain Kirk's first command was a Destroyer-class starship.
