You'd think.

However, I believe that there are splinter groups, vestiges of a time gone by where the Dominion in the Gamma Quadrant, genetically built to be warriors, aren't willing to lie down. I think this subject was also broached in Robotech, right after the episode "Force of Arms".

Did he rejoin the Federation or did something happen to him when he was on the Changeling homeworld? I'm just curious because my character in STO is a Changeling who joined the Federation. Thanks. Live long and prosper!
I was also thinking about this. It's a very good point. Though odo did seem to stop the war etc, there was plenty of "scope" to see that odo was one from a collective. So in sci fi theory maybe he simply wasn't enough to prevent war forever?

I wonder if any of the trek books have adressed this?

great post!

i wonder what stance the Dominion in the gamma quadrant would take...
I think though although the federation have strengthened, so have the klingons. With even the possibility of a diminion threat and a rumulan threat the federation could be forced to fight a war on several fronts. Even the federation(we assume) could not afford to fight a war on so many fronts. If it's a paralell of the real world the no "country" caj afford to fight wars on too many fronts no matter how large thier forces...so I was just adding this point to the "threat" spock spoke of and how easy it could be for the feds to "handle the encounter"..bt maybe it's "encounters" thats the threat?


i dunno just thought I would throw the idea in there

The Romulans aren't a threat. They just saw their homeworld destroyed. The only thing the Romulans should be concerned about is the Klingons pushing through their borders (ideally). Since this isn't a scenario I'm completely versed in, I won't pursue this course any longer.

However, its not like the Federation is at war with anyone else. Sure there is the Borg conflict which never seems to end (only from headstart to ltc, haven't made it past that point). However, as the game stands, the only big threat is the Klingon invasion and their allies. So, if in the unlikely event that the Federation is at war (again) with the Klingons and Dominion, I think for, at least a short time, they can handle a two front battle. But at that point, the Romulans better step up and pitch a shut-out on their way to Qo'nos.

to clarify..the romulans my not be a threat..but people lie the feds will defend them if thats the case causing it's own problem. My point being that war or no war what with the klingons, the borg, the romunlans(they coul ally themselves) and a host of other races that could become involved the region is "unstable" and "ripe" for war..and with the power being unbalanced thanks to the fall of the fomulans...history hhas shown these time to be the ones that can spiral out of control all of this is just me fantasising and speculating of course....but i dont think I a being to "far out" man! hehe

Don't forget the Narada. She was built in this time period. She may have vanished, but I have reason to believe the Romulans have advanced technology that they gleaned from the borg, at least, the Narada featured a lot of borg-based nano-technology and a transwarp drive (though my puny 1st tier ship does, too, apparently, I think it's a cool effect, btw).
The Romulans probably also have a lot of ships around their sector that weren't destroyed by the catastrophe. A lot of shipyards were probably off-world, too, to avoid civilian casualties in case of an attack. I mean, obviously, the Romulans aren't going to wither and die so easy, but I think their greatest problem is their splintered government, I don't know how stable it is and what it's intentions and standing towards the federation is.

However I do know, that, like since always, Romulans hate Klingons and vice versa.

If anything, the power-base shifted to the Federation, which even post dominion output, probably still doubles what the Klingons have, which is why they reinforce their armada with naussicans and gorn fleets.

It is simple. I took over the dominion and now I will overun the Federation and conquer the entire Alpha-Quadrant
