Yeah, if it hadn't been Moore...I wouldn't have said anything.
But that's still not clear from your original post, which started this entire discussion. I'm sorry that I couldn't read your mind over the internet and know you were comparing it to Battlestar Galactica.
Well your avatar *looks* like a guy who can read minds!

re: My finding Ron Moore's e-mail.

I did embarrassingly find Ron's father on Facebook. Who apparently is also named Ronald D. Moore. And no I didn't ask for Ron Jr's E-mail.

You could have told Ron Sr. you were with the FBI and it was urgent you contact Ron Jr.

I interpreted the scene as referring to any totalitarian regime, since the Cardassians seem to be stand-ins for Space Nazis.

edit: Maybe I should have used the term "authoritarian", but I didn't study political science.
I always thought Cardassia represented Israel and Bajor - Palestine.

Re: Tacking Into the Wind

I think part of the whole pleasure of it - and sadly the point of it - is that there is no one-to-one direct correlation, because these kind of things have happened and are happening and will happen over and over again all over the world. Every time with its own slight variations, but basically at root the same thing. Each viewer superimposes his own cultural viewpoint onto it, given their own history and political leanings, but the basic concept is sadly always the same. That's why it hits home to so many people - it speaks to universal aspects of the human condition, even if the details may not be precisely the same.
