Re: Could the Dominion War have been avoided?
Could the Dominion War have been avoided, anything is possible, but in this case I think the only other realistic option was delaying the war until a few years down the road. As has been said the Founders did not like Solids of any kind, and would only feel safe until all the solids had been subdued.
I just wonder what the Borg would have had to say about that. They may not have been able to assimilate a Founder but a Vorta or Jem'Hadar or Dominion ship would have given what they needed to fight the Dominion.
Imogene, get serious! Who do you think you're talking to?! I've known you for 27 years, and all I can say is, if God was giving out sexually transmitted diseases to people as a punishment for sinning, then you would be at the free clinic all the time! And so would the rest of us!
