I have a question about Cardassian technology.
Were they not as established in some episodes of TNG has having technology that was not as advanced as the Feds? Like a century behind them?
Then in DS9 they are about on a par with the Feds. I can see them getting a big advance in tech from the Dominion, but they seemed to be pretty much equal or better in some ways in terms of technology as the Feds at the start of the show. Or did I just see too much?
