Re: Lost opportunity for Federation during the Dominion War

On the Federation side, sure, even among all the Alpha Quadrant powers you'd expect multiple layers of authentication needed. But for a polity built around the protection of shapeshifters that have conditioned their subjects to view them as Gods...no, I can't see the Founder's letting their subjects "test" them. The Vorta, maybe, might need to authenticate their identities, but the Founders themselves? They say jump, and their subjects don't even ask "How high?", they just do it.

So, yeah, it should've been possible for Odo to imitate the Female Founder indefinitely, until some conflicting orders made some Vorta start asking questions....
