Re: Sacrifice of the Angels Ending A Deus Ex Machina?

I don't think there was a significant imbalance of power as you say. During the episode, and possibly elsewhere in the series, Dukat occasionally made remarks that strongly implied he sought to challenge the Dominion one day, and regarded the Cardassian Union's joining of the Dominion as temporary. If the Dominion really were vastly more powerful than the Federation, which the Cardassian Union couldn't seriously challenge on its own, then Dukat would have known this and would never have thought the Cardassian Union capable of challenging the Dominion. Dukat was many things, but he wasn't psychotic (well, not that severely, anyways).
