Re: The Typhon Pact

That's taking the analogy way, way too literally. The idea is not to do some slavishly exact copy of recent Earth history.
Just sayin', Chris....

After all, I seem to recall one of TPTP comparing The Dominion War to WWII, with the UFP as the USA, the Klingon Empire as the UK (), and the Romulans as the USSR....

None of those three are quite copies of their "counterparts"...but you get the idea....
