Re: Was Ben Maxwell right about the Cardassians?
Maxwell was right, of course. His actions definitely slowed down Cardassian efforts to fortify their border with the Federation and their ability to launch an offensive strike.
So officially the Federation frowned upon Maxwell's actions, privately they were probably applauding what happened.
