An awesome segment. We see just how fragile this alliance is and with every new recruit one has to wonder when someone might change allegience.
Thank you very much for reading! Yes, there is a lot in this alliance to complicate it--and not just between the Federation and the Cardassians.
As you can see, intra-species racism is alive and well in certain quarters among the Cardassians, not to mention the controversial histories of some in this alliance (Thouves Daro being probably THE most controversial of all).
And of course we've already seen that not everybody on the Federation side accepted Spirodopoulos' persuasion with total lack of reservations...
