I know according to Star Trek Canon, the Federation and Klingon Empire have a matter/antimater warp core and the Romulan Star Empire/Romulan Republic have the singularity warp cores, but what about warp cores from the:
Cardassian Union, Breen Confederacy Borg Collective, Tholian Assembly, Ferengi Alliance and Dominion?
Is there any Star Trek Canon information about the warp cores of each of these factions? If so can you please post it so I can read it.
There is no Canon Star Trek information about what these races use for a central power core. Though, I can guess what the Cardassian's, Ferengi, and Dominion do use. A type of powerplant similar to a M/AM Reaction system. Maybe not the exact same setup as the Federation or Klingons, but very close. For the Ferengi, I wouldn't be surprised to see and actual Federation designed core in their ship given their propensity towards greed and salvaging what they can find (even if it is still crewed).
Tholians, I wouldn't be surprised to see a high radiation type drive since they are immune to most forms of Radiation.
Breen would probably use something closer to the Romulan Singularity core. Far more resilient against their energy drain weapons.
Borg, as stated, use a decentralized power system. As shown on the TNG episode 'Best of Both World's', they rely upon multiple redundancies and spread all of the systems throughout the ship. Makes for a very hard opponent when they have VERY few weak points, unlike all of the other races.
