Now, 2,800 ships is a lot no matter how old they are, but if the Federation, Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians, and everybody else join forces, perhaps we could win without loosing to much.
What do you guys think?
I don't think they will in a standard fight against everyone but I also think they'll emerge at a point when there's only 20 or so Federation and Klingon ships in range of DS9, story-wise.
We take out a hundred or so but the rest immediately realize:
A) They're weaker
B) There is no non-aggression pact with Bajor
So while we're busy fighting a hundred of them, the rest move in on Bajor, raze a few cities and occupy with half a million Jem'Hadar before we can get reinforcements. Unless we can persuade the Founders to intervene or cut off the flow of Ketracel White, they will take command of Bajor's defense force and upgrade their ships. But if we intervene the wrong way, they'll be prepared to blow Bajor to smithereens.
