I knew only Klingon and not Federation could get Wadi doffs, but I did not know why till now. Read the description of the Wadi Officer Exchange doff assignment below.


"The High Command has order the implementation of officer exchange programs to assist integration of Imperial Protectorates. The Wadi are presenting one of their own officers or civilian contractors to serve on your ship in exchange for one of your own officers who will show them proper Imperial practice."

When did the Wadi become an Imperial Protectorate?

There is a Dosi and Ferasans verison of this assignment too. Knew the Ferasans were an Imperial Protectorate, did not know about Wadi and Dosi. If the Wadi and Dosi are Imperial Protectorates how and when did this happen?

Also there is two assignment chains to help the Dosi and Wadi colonize a planet.

Should the Klingons get Dosi and Wadi as playable races and Bridge Officers?

.. which only means, they're allied somehow ...

Oh, well the Dosi and Wadi share the same status as the Ferasans and the Ferasans can be captains and bridge officers so that part still stands. Still wouldn't mind hearing more about it in game. What's the relationship exactly between the Empire and the Ferasans, Wadi, and Dosi?

Kind of odd that the Dosi & Wadi homeworlds would end up as imperial protectorates, considering they're both in the gamma quadrant, and the Dosi in particular are either part of the dominion, or their territory is right on their doorstep. Cryptic should really either give us an indication of what happened, or just change this text to something more logical.

The Dominion is pretty much gone after the Dominion War ... and again protectorate could mean everythng, from
"part of their empire" to "they have diplomatic relations"

In other words -> protectorate = some easy way to give Klingons some cool new Doffs, no questions asked

Wrong. The Dominion is alive and well in the Gamma Quadrant.

That's just semantics, of course it's alive ... but it's not the same Dominion as during the 2370's ... the female changeling just went to prison for 40 years, while Odo obviously told them to let go of all their vassal states like the Karemma, Dosi, Wadi etc etc etc ...

The Dominion left the alpha quadrant after the Dominion War. It's still very much alive and well in the gamma quadrant (as seen in "Operation Gamma"). And while protectorate is a somewhat vague term, it does imply at minimum some form of defence pact, ie that the empire is committed to "protecting" the Dosi. This wouldn't make any sense if the Dosi where part of the Dominion. It might be possible if they were a independent state neighboring Dominion territory, but that situation sounds like a second Dominion War just waiting to happen.

Have you played "Boldly they rode", and watched "What you leave behind", the female changeling seems to be the Federation pet by now, and just told a giant Jem'hadar Army to let it go, while the Dominion was probably controlled by Odo for the last 40 years ... there is no more need to "explain" this ... 2nd Dominion War ... that's kind of like expecting Western Germany to attack the USA in the 60's
