By establishing a long history of antagonism, which helps explain one-another's attitudes towards each other, and why the Klingons were so eager to invade Cardassia.
Not according to Garak. He seemed to think the incident was unimportant, no matter how long it lasted.

Which is why I did not speculate as to the writer's intent.
Saying it was "something they meant to get back to but never did" is not speculating about the writer's intent?

I think the line was a throwaway one. You don't. Fine. Argument over.

Re: Betreka Nebula incident.

Well if you think about it, the only actual wars between the Federation and the Klingon Empire were the ones in 2267 and 2372-2373. As the former only lasted only about a day before the Organians put a stop to it, one might consider it only a minor speed bump on track to the Khitomer Conference of 2293 and the formal alliance that followed the Khitomer Massacre of 2346.

I think Garak was just using sarcastic understatement.
