To an extend, yeah. It stands to reason that the Federation are the good guys, and Section 31, whilst questionable, has the security and interests of the Federation at heart; they just bend the rules somewhat.

If we then look at the Klingon Empire; they're not bad, or evil. They're doing what they've always done, and that is fight. Klingons love to fight (and drink). It's in their very nature. They don't trust too easily either, and are extremely suspicious. That and they appear to sometimes be naive. Still, they're not an evil faction.

The same goes for D'Tan; he's just trying to rebuild and set up a foundation for his people.

Organisations like the Tal Shiar, True Way and old Dominion are evil though, evil in the sense that they'd control the entire quadrant/galaxy if they could. They're after power, and will go to any means to get it. The Klingons have honour, and rarely fight because they want power over a species/sector etc. The Klingons aren't out for galactic conquest, thus not evil. The Tal Shiar, True Way and Iconian are. That's what makes them evil.

Even Season 8's Voth; they're the bad guys from the current perspective of the playerbase, but they're not actually evil. They're just holding their ground.

Honestly, I don't think Garak would have any desire to start up a sub-faction.

A little bit too farfetched for me.

I doubt the Son'a would ever become their own faction. I only mentioned them as allies of the Cardassian cause I wouldn't want a Cardassian faction to be just Cardassian. We need a little more variety. Even the current Republic lacks that.
