THE FEDERATION'S GREATEST ENEMIES SIGN A PACT OF EVILLLL.
When did that happen?
[Typhon Pact]
You must have been reading a different set of Typhon Pact novels than I did. When I read A Singular Destiny, Zero Sum Game, Rough Beasts of Empire, The Struggle Within, Plagues of Night, and Raise the Dawn, I thought it was pretty clear that the Typhon Pact is not a "pact of evil," but is instead an alliance of states with their own internal divisions between hostility and peacefulness, and that the Pact itself as a unit is still evolving and may yet prompt its members to abandon their historical xenophobia.

Especially The Struggle Within and Plagues/Raise. The Typhon Pact is not the bad guy in those books -- hostile elements within the Pact are the bad guys.
