Re: DS9 - Where to start?
I'm pretty certain...
Robinson's short story "The Calling" and
Articles of the Federation
both established Garak as the ambassador before that. (Specifically, AoF refers to a debate between Garak and Lwaxana on the senate floor.)
Not entirely true. See spoiler:
"The Calling" does
establish Garak as ambassador, since his trip to Earth in that story never really happened - it was just part of his Vinculum vision.
however does count.
is actually referencing a scene first established, IIRC, in
The Brave and the Bold
, also by KRAD. But neither source establishes that Garak is the permanent Cardassian Ambassador to the UFP; rather, they established that in the immediate aftermath of the war, he was a diplomatic envoy to the UFP without establishing any particular office, such as the permanent ambassadorship. That might seem like a minor distinction, except that Garak appears in
Worlds of Deep Space Nine
, set after the famous spat with Ambassador Troi, and he is not Cardassian Ambassador to the UFP in that story.
Democratic socialism is the hope of human freedom.
