The Cardassians are DEFINITELY owed there, big time--especially since THEY weren't the ones who handed over said territory; it was Weyoun and the Female Changeling that did it. I have to wonder if the Federation would be willing to strong-arm the Breen to make them give it back?
Hmm, I'm sure the Breen would counter with the fact that Cardassia had joined the Dominion and it was perfectly fine for Weyoun the Changeling to do that.
Which Dukat did illegitimately, without the approval of the Detapa Council or any other government entity. Dukat was essentially a pirate at the time, NOT a legitimate Cardassian representative.
Of course, the problem there is talking about who holds legitimate governance on Cardassia -- who holds legitimacy with the populace? It's like trying to figure out who the real leader of Lebanon is right now.
