    As of the start of DS9, where the only planet known to change ownership in the aftermath of the "Chain of Command" debacle is Bajor, the very Cardassian home system suddenly borders on neutral space in the direction of the UFP.

    ...Well, space filled with cultures sympathetic to the Union, or at least with cultures hostile to the Federation, such as the Kressari, Klaestron or Xepolites, plus Miradorn, Tzenkethi and so forth. But still space not belonging to the Union. That doesn't sound like the spoils of a war fought to a standstill - but more like a home system left to its owners out of pity when everything else has been stripped away from them.

    It's just that when the UFP wins wars hands down, it doesn't annex territory...

    "His father's sword he hath girded on,
    and his wild harp slung behind him."

    Stop! I'm getting all choked up!

    Half the episodes in TNG would be 5 minutes long if they listed to Worf more often.

    Not to mention that anytime Worf is in charge of Picard's or Riker's security on an away mission, they get captured.

    "Land of Song!" said the warrior bard,
    "Tho' all the world betray thee,
    One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,
    One faithful harp shall praise thee!"

    Cardassians joined The Dominion because Dukat sold his people to them. He admitted to it in A Time to Stand.

    The Cardassians would not have listened to Dukat though if the Klingons hadn't pushed them to the brink.

    The Cardassians are not inherently evil any more than Germans are inherently evil. They were at the mercy of an evil government.
