Re: Dominion War Contingency Plan: The Omega Molecule.

The enemies cannot bypass the disruption if it affects their star systems/territory. They're stuck in it - for decades, if not more:

They can traverse it with slower than light, but that takes time. And the slower than light limitation will be, for them, an economic and logistical nightmare.

As for you - far from destroying your civilisation to spite the enemy, you have all the time and resources you need to prepare for an eventual future war.

Re: Dominion War Contingency Plan: The Omega Molecule.

So why didn't the Feds deploy Omega? Either they like fighting with one hand tied behind their back, or Omega isn't as controllable as the OP would like to think.

Re: Dominion War Contingency Plan: The Omega Molecule.

Our heroes rarely, if ever, used all the opportunities their technology allowed.

At the very least, both the dominion and the federation should have known the war to be unwinable, remaining locked in a cold war, while their WMDs (protomatter star-killers; genesis devices; omega; etc) guaranteed MAD if used.
And the attacks by a borg cube should have been stopped by using such weaponry.

Then there's all the mischief time travel technology (the temporal cold war should have been a reality by the 24th century, not the 29th; let's resurrect the dead) or the transporter allows; etc.

The Dominion never recognizes a confrontation as unwinnable for them.
