Ceding planets/sectors to the Typhon pact?
That worked really well with the Cardassian union.
A few things:

1) Bacco ceded several planets to the Cardassians to get them to join the fleet at the Azure Nebula.

2) We'll never really know in regards to the cessions that resulted in the Maquis, since by the time we start to look back at the Cardassians and the Maquis, Dukat kinda came in and took over, before we could see how it would have played out fully.

3) I wasn't seriously suggesting that the Federation cede anything. Here's what I said in full:

Further, I'm not sure there's really anything the Federation *could* do to show the Typhon Pact that they aren't imperialistic expansionists, unless the Federation were willing to surrender several planets and/or sectors. But that would probably just make the Typhon Pact even more suspicious.

Appeasement never works.
I agree with that, completely.
