Re: What likely happened to the Cardassian Union after the war

Such mishaps are not nearly enough to upset the utter domination of klingon/romulan occupation forces against mere terrorists; a phenomenon the romans (for example) - like most empires - also dealt with.
History - real world history - shows empires don't fall - aren't even moderately inconvenienced - due to terrorists.
They could give a reason for those empires to pull out.
You need a military, a large, well equipped army for such momentary weakening of the klingons/romulans to be exploitable.
They have the experience and the minds to set up a regular army and they pobably have a relativly intact infrastructure on the part occupyed by the Feds who might let them have their own state after a while.

As said - the notion that defeated people can overthrow their vigilant conquerors is largely fantasy.
How many colonies did Britain had in 1912 and how many does it have now?
