Title sums it up, could any of you see a future where a number of the known major races of Milky Way (Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians, Ferengi) would join the Federation? Or perhaps, due to the size of the Romulan and Klingon empires, a merging of the major powers? I don't just mean an alliance, but a full joining of the Alpha and Beta quadrant powers. If yes, then perhaps detail how you think the arrangement would work. If no, explain why this kind of "Galactic Federation" could never exist. EDIT: Going even further, could you see even the Dominion races joining? FYI, I've only seen TNG,TOS and all the movies, so my knowledge of lore and information shown on DS9, VOY, and ENT is spotty at best. Qapla'!
