Well, yes and no. We saw in DS9 that where dozens of changelings, so the loss of one, and the introduction of a more reform-minded one, wouldn't be likely to lead to a major change in Dominion policy. On the other hand, if the story "Olympus Descending" from the "Worlds of Deep Space Nine" series is taken as part of STO's back-story, then !!SPOILER ALERT!!--> Odo has been running the Dominion single-handedly for the last 40 years.

I'm not saying it's impossible that the Dosi (and the Wadi) are now Klingon Protectorates, I'm just saying that it would make for some interesting stories if this were the case. If cryptic's going to go down this path, then I hope we get to visit the gamma quadrant and get some interesting story-line missions.

Well as mentioned before, my guess is that it's just same lame ass excuse to sell the Gamma Quadrant DOFF packs (while it might makes sense, because of the weakened Dominion) ... thats probably why the choose the term "protectorate" which doesn't even imply protecting them with military actions ... they could just condemn the invaders/attackers diplomatically (might not be very Klingon, but thats just how vague this term is ...)

Some background info might be interesting, but my guess is we'll have to wait till "Cardassian Faction" / or at least "Cardassian Reputation"

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?
I wouldn't complain if they were to become playable races for the KDF...would be nice to see some new races...especially a Dosi...they can be the KDF's Ferengi?

Really have to pay attention to the entirety of those assignment chains, both the consulate chains and the colony chains they reference. The KDF has helped the Dosi and Wadi establish colonies outside of Dominion authority, as has the Federation with the Karemma and Paradans, both factions even going so far as providing our own colonists too boost their labor force. These exchange offers are coming from those colonies, not from the homeworlds. The Gamma quadrant races are getting a lot more out of these arrangements than the handful of officers that Starfleet and the KDF are getting (and for every officer they get, they send one of their own to balance it).

Edit: And people saying "play Boldly they Rode," should play it themselves. Few points: We see the Dominion is alive and strong, and will attack any ship coming through the wormhole in violation of the Treaty of Bajor (this is not new, as that's what appears to have happened to the Rapier just before traveling several years forward in time). The Founder we released is hardly a pet, as she even told us to our faces she'd spent forty years learning new reasons to hate us before making the most half hearted show of effort to keep her side of the bargain before shrugging and sticking us with the entire check.

It's not semantics in the least. The Dominion still controls a sizable interstellar empire in the Gamma Quadrant, still has the iron fist of the Jem'Hadar at its disposal and is shown to be maintaining most if not all of its policies.

It's just slightly less xenophobic and genocidal.

She didn't tell a Jem'hadar army to let it go, she told a Jem'hadar army to stand down in exchange for her freedom. She was serving a life sentence, and for a being who can't die of old age, that's quite a long time to stay in a box. It was an entirely self-serving choice.

You seriously misunderstand the relationship between the Dominion and the Federation.

Must have missed that part ... !?

Karemma Officer Exchange Program :

1. The Federation Council has asked your ship to deliver a classified communique to the Karemman government regarding the establishment of a more extensive diplomatic mission to Karemma.
2. Security demands require an intensive sweep of the complex for the new consulate on Karemma..
3. Security deficiencies require the installation of several new security systems in the new consulate on Karemma..
4. One of your crew has been granted the honor of a diplomatic stationing at the new consulate on Karemma..

Assignment:
Station Deputy Ambassador at the Consulate on Karemma completed.
1x Any Officer
Purple Quality: Honorable, Teamwork
Blue Quality: Honorable, Teamwork
Green Quality: Aggressive, Unruly
White Quality: Aggressive, Unruly

-> so we obviously went through the wormhole to build consulates on Gamma Quadrant worlds ... and last time I checked, noone really knows what the "Treaty of Bajor" really says, in detail ... obviously traveling to (former) Dominion Space to build consulates there, isn't a problem ... => relationship between Federation & Dominion is pretty obvious ... they still might have the power to gloat, but they obviously are beyond controlling most their (former) vassals ...

Karemma Colonial Team :

1. Representatives of the Karemma are forming a team of colonial surveyors and support specialists to expand their holdings in the Gamma Quadrant. Make contact with them to lay the groundwork for future cooperation.
2. The Karemma colonization teams have assembled a list of potential colonization sites. Send a team to assist in scientific surveys to determine the sites' viability.
3. The Karemma colonization team is in need of manual labor for long-term assignment to frontier worlds.

-> Source on following please !!

Of course they are outside of Dominion authority ... because, all their homeworlds are as well .... and they obviously have the means/guts to even expand their territories, despite of the Dominion "presence" in the Gamma Quadrant ...

What's your point here ... Homeworlds are still controlled by the Dominion, but some primitive colonies right around the corner are not ??? ... Seriously you just helped setting up a new colony ... where do you think these colonists just arrived from, to begin with ... and what's the difference ...

btw : British Empire still exists, they still have Welsh Guards (Jem'Hadar) ... they just lost India, America etc (Dosi, Karemma, Wadi, Paradan) ... but hey they're obviously still powerful because they just recently went to war with Argentinia (were rude to some lonely shuttle / some Vorta captured one ship, in hope of impressing his gods) ...

I looked and no where does it say the Dosi and Wadi are members of the Dominion. They're homeworlds are in the Gamma Quadrant. If the Dominion is acting agressive towards the Dosi and Wadi then it makes sense they'd be drawn to the military might of the empire as protection.

The Empire loves to conqueor, but it seems to allow great autonomy to its subjects, so joining the Empire would still be preferable to being taken over by the Totalarian Theocracy of the Dominion.

The Dosi and the Wadi would do well in the Empire.

Still there is still so much of the Klingons story to be told, so many blanks to be filled in, such as the Letheans, Ferasans, Dosi, Wadi.

I look through the Doff assignments to see what I can find.
