The Vetar was a Cardassian Galor-class cruiser that was in service with the Cardassian military in the late 24th century. It was commanded by Gul Evek, with Glinn Telak as executive officer. (TNG: "Journey's End")

In 2370, the Vetar was assigned to perform a preliminary survey of Dorvan V before the colony was to be handed over to the Cardassian Union. (TNG: "Journey's End") Later that year, the Vetar came under attack by a fleet of small but heavily-armed Maquis attack fighters; the ship sustained heavy damage before the attackers were driven off by the arrival of the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Preemptive Strike")

In 2371, the Vetar was pursuing a Maquis raider commanded by Chakotay; when Chakotay chose to escape into the Badlands, Evek continued in full pursuit. The Vetar took heavy damage when it was struck by a plasma column inside the Badlands; it was forced to break off pursuit. (VOY: "Caretaker")

According to the script for "Journey's End", the pronunciation for Vetar was "VEE-tar". [1]
The Starships RPG sourcebook gives its registry as CUW-8254.
