Re: Question about one reality from Parallels.
We know that in the same quantum reality that the Bajorans overthrew the Cardassian Occupation and became more aggressive.
It didn't say that the Bajorans overthrew the Occupation - rather, that they overpowered the entire Cardassian Union. I interpreted this to mean that in that universe, the occupation happened in reverse - that it was Bajor who invaded and occupied Cardassia.
