Still, doubling the life-span of your soldiers and adding to the pool of those who can serve by curing genetic problems and therefore greatly increasing the number of those available to serve in combat is still a huge advantage.
Not really when the federation is fighting a group that uses a race of mass produced clones that are really for combat in a matter of days and can build ships for them faster the feds can.

It would be an almost microscopic to the point of not really being that noticeable advanatge at best.
That's a great point I hadn't thought of, but you're right. The Dominion can manufacture endless waves of troops on demand. The Federation would never be able to compete if we're talking about a war of attrition, which is what sonak is suggesting.
Which is why I'm wondering just how the particles are supposed to be this magic bullet that will help the Federation win the war.
