I live in hope.

This wouldn't actually expand their population though, cause people would be playing as Cardassian and Romulan, not Klingon.

...besides, Cardassians serving the Klingon Empire?

Considering I think this is a good idea whereas you think it's a bad one, I'd be very much interested in those extensive reasons of yours. Please, share them.

I haven't come in here with some crazy idea either; I know my Trek (minus some TOS) but I grew up with TNG, DS9 & VOY; I don't need to go researching on Memory Alpha before I bring ideas to the table.

People keep bringing the Klingons into this... Yet it's a far bet that if the Cardassians aren't incorperated into the Romulans, then they'll be released as yet another mini faction. What does Cryptic do with mini factions? They give them the option to join the Federation or Klingon Empire. Cardassians joining the Empire? No!

Let me ask you (and everybody else) this: If you had a choice (one or the other) and the Cardassians were brought into this game as playable, would you rather them join with D'Tan and his Republic, or J'mpok and the Klingon Empire?
