This could have been an ongoing arc that crept up from time to time about emancipation, civil war and reconstruction.
Unless the Klingons or the Romulans took the Orions side, how long would they really last in an all out war against the Federation?
The Orions still use atomic fission to power their warp drives.
What exactly would the Federation do if they had conquered Orion?
And how would that lead to the humanacentric Orion Syndicate as seen in DS9?
I am assuming a lot of this refers to other shows I've not watched.
