Adding some pieces together...filling in some blanks... making some guesses...makes me wonder if
It could be fun...or just a rehash of what has come before. I guess only time will tell

There are any number of possibilities. The "new president his hiding his real identity/a dark secret/is a traitor" trope goes back at least as far as The Manchurian Candidate, if not further. President Ishan could be anything from a Founder of the Dominion to a Cardassia First-supporting former Obsidian Order agent to an operative of the formerly-rogue Tal Shiar to a Tzenkethi mole to a reactionary Bajoran nationalist to a Section 31 member to an associate of the Orion Syndicate. Or so could his chief of staff but not him. Who knows?

^The Chief of Staff occured to me too. I'm loving the suspense of it all. I can't wait to find out for sure

Here's an article about the ship on the cover. This version of the Karemma ship appeared in "Natural law" at the Ledosian spaceport.

Redresses of the Karemma Ship
And seeing it from the episode really makes me think of BSG. Which is weird, since Natural Law predates BSG by a little over two years.

Not that weird, though, since a lot of the same FX artists and designers worked on both shows.

That might come back to haunt them later. Or in other words: "bad karemma".

Surprised nobody has published the new blur? It spoils a couple of (obvious) plot twists, so look away if you don't want to know...
