The CDC is a RP freindly (We understand that not everyone is into role playing in ST:O and will make accommodations for both roleplayers and non-roleplayers alike) PvE/PvP and Mission Running fleet with a heavy emphasis on the lore surrounding Cardassians within the ST:O universe.
Who We Want
We are looking for mature Starfleet Captains of all allied races and specialties. Whether you're fresh out of the Academy, a surviving Veteran of Wolf 397, or a Cardassian refugee, we need your unique talents within the CDC.
Our Plans for the Future
As we are focusing on the Cardassian theme, one of our goals will be to outfit long-term members with a Galor Class Starship. Our more immediate goal is to finish upgrading our starbase, Nevok Nor, as well as our Embassy.
Backstory for the Roleplayers
Following the Cardassian economic crises (2398-2380) and the signing of a new treaty between the Cardassian Union and Federation (Federation-Cardassian treaty of 2386) in which the Cardassian Union agreed to neither field a military force or wage war,the Cardassian military had been reformed into the Cardassian Self-Defense Force (CDF) and restricted to Cardassian space. The Cardassian people would later be in opposition with each other as Elim Garak and Gul Madrad vied for political dominance on Cardassia Prime. Elim Garak would narrowly defeat his opponent, Gul Madrad.
In 2390, Elam Garak and the Grand Nagas, Rom signed several contracts leading to the return of sacred evonite artifacts and Ferengi investments that would lead to the revival of Cardassian industry.
Following the emergence of the True Way led by Gul Madred in 2409, a group of former Cardassian officers turned to Starfleet and with the aid of the Ferengi Alliance, managed to amend the Federation-Cardassian treaty of 2386, allowing for a single Cardassian fleet. The Cardassian Defense Coalition was born. As part of the amended treaty, the CDC would not only be overseen by Starfleet Command, but accept Starfleet personnel within it's ranks. All Cardassian members of the CDC would attend a modified course within the Academy, familiarizing them with Starfleet rules and regulations before reporting to their post on Nevok Nor. As such, CDC personal are recognized as Starfleet officers and subject to Starfleet rules and regulations.
