Wow, what a bloodbath! Granted the pieces were already known from future novels- but it was really quite shocking to see how it enfolded. After the fall of the Dominion, Cardassia Prime really has been changed from being the equivalent of Nazi Germany, to the embattled Middle East.
I really do like where this series is going. I can also tell there is some pipe being laid with that camera shocking Nog and itching Shar, and this whole Vinculum thing. Can start to see more seeds being planted for the Ascendant arc, and I am amped.
Maybe just a suggestion to call it something other than 'Vinculum' since it's an obscure word that most trekkers will just associate with a piece of Borg technology anyways
