Well, although most of the Cardassian fans left pre-launch and Cryptic has decided to keep the Cardassian people in a shroud of black smoke. Myself and my friend will do what seems to be a daunting task of re-establishing the Original and ONLY Cardassian fleet in Star Trek Online.
I had attempted to gather Cardassian fans in a neutral location with no obligations (no joining fleets or anything) which doesn't appear to have been desired. SO, we shall transform into a fleet and whomever is a Cardassian fan can join.
So, the origin of the fleet name is based off of a rare gem found only in Cardassia. Jevonite is a dark orange color.
The Jevonite Order
Races: Cardassians and Alien (which use the backstory of a member within the union).
NO to Dominion races, Klingon races, Federation races, or Romulan races.
We are focused on
C. Foundry Missions
D. Dabble in STF and PvP
We are not focused on
A. Building Fleet stations (It becomes more of a job to build the station rather than the main purpose of the game which is to have fun.)
B. Mining/Creating (Once again it can become more of a job)
A. Mature; although age is not a deciding factor
B. A player which places more emphasis on building a character (what kind of ship would this character enjoy flying) rather than power mongering trying to get the biggest strongest toys to prove something. if you already have it and that is what you character would want fine, but we want RP deep members not robots with toys.
C. Knows how to respect others by being courteous at all times. We do not harass or spam or even grieve outside of our little circle on fleet forums (STO is not the place to grieve.)
We DO NOT HAVE OR WANT VOICE
So, if you are a Cardassian fan and looking for a fleet. Check us out and help rebuild Cardassia
Q: (KeithCrimson) When do we get to play as a Cardassian?
Dstahl: We've been holding off on having playable Cardassians and Romulans for the time being as we envision having a complete faction devoted to these races. That is the only reason we haven't added them as playable species in the game yet. They are reserved for future expansions. That said, depending on what our timeline is for future expansions, we haven't ruled out the possibility of having a few Cardassians or Romulans appear in Fed/Kdf ranks. So this is very TBD still.
Was the biggest slap in the face against the Cardassians, as Federation and Klingons began utilizing Galors stolen from our people. For that insult, we shall strike back.
The Jevonite Order calls upon all Cardassians who seek the return of stature amongst the Alpha Quadrant to join our proud order. For to long, the Federation and Klingon Empires have tried to dictate our lives. They made agreements and although we complied with our part, they abandoned theirs. They call us deceitful and corrupt but their words are as thin as water. Their pledges are no more than feathers in the wind that hop from one breeze to the next never standing firm on their oaths.
They speak of alliances, but they mean subjugates to their Empires. They half heartedly aided us in fear that if they did not an uprising would ensue. We are not slaves and shall be free once again from the burdening yoke of the quadrant and we shall prevail once again.
So join the Order and bring pride back to the Cardassian spirit.
WARNING: THOSE SEEKING FLEETS; THIS MAY OR MAY NOT BE THE FLEET YOU ARE SEEKING.
We do not fight in the Federation/Klingon war
We command ships in Starfleet; but ARE NOT members of Starfleet. Our focus (RP based) is on the return of a free and independent Cardassia. A Cardassia without the interference or meddling of the Federation.
We are ALL CARDASSIAN
We are focused on Roleplaying though we also participate in STF, PvP, and PvE; members are not forced to participate in aspects of the game they do not find enjoyment in.
We have decided to take this role within the STO universe because Cardassians are the MOST IGNORED AND LEAST POPULAR.
We are unique from all other fleets and the original.
We are outnumbered
We lack resources
However, we have
Determination in the goal of achieving independence
Endurance to overcome all obstacles
Disciplined to watch until the time for action arrives
A family of brothers and sisters with one purpose.
We understand that this may not be your "thing" and if this is the case we wish
you well in seeking the right fit for you.
If you like what you see and feel you can enjoy the various differences and
overcome such obstacles. We invite you to visit our site and join THE FEW,
THE PROUD, THE CARDASSIANS
We Know that the Cardassian species is not the most popular in the Star Trek
We Know that most consider us down and out
We Know we're not pretty
AND We know you may or may not fit in the Order, so how can you tell?
ALL CARDASSIAN (Alien generic with Cardassian background accepted. No Dominion)
RP FOCUSED, but also participate in STF, PvP, and PvE
FRIENDLY AND WILLING TO TEAM UP
SO, if you want the challenge of playing a species which receives no respect and forced to overcome extreme obstacles AND You are determined to overcome such obstacles while having fun....
YOU CAN BECOME ONE OF THE FEW, THE PROUD, THE CARDASSIANS.
Many will view the Jevonite Order as a member of the True Way. This is FALSE
The True Way supports open conflict and aggression against the Cardassian Government and those who support the government. The True Way rejects all aid from all factions.
The Jevonite Order seeks to influence the Cardassian policy via the people and protests against the consideration of seeking membership into an expansionist society as the Federation. We do not attack the sons and daughters of Cardassia, rather we defend all that is Cardassian.
We acknowledge that although GUL Dukat was a power hungry tyrant, we also acknowledge the reasoning why he sought alliance with the Dominion was based on the continuous build up of Starfleet warships along Cardassian borders, Klingon invasion, and the Federation violating its own prime directive by involving itself in what was a Cardassian internal matter (Bajor).
We claim that the Federation has constantly incited conflict with the Cardassian Union. Compare the volume of warships they assigned along the Romulan and Klingon neutral zones with that of the Cardassian Neutral zone. Starfleet's constant aggression towards the Cardassian people and its pro-active practice of expansion is the basis of all major conflicts in the Alpha and Beta quadrants.
With the fall of the dominion alliance with the cardassians many Jem'hadar where heldon Cardassia andeventualy intergrated into households as personal protection staff....I myself have a Hybrid cardasian Jem'hadar in my service but he wouldseem to be un-welcomein the unions service
With the fall of the dominion alliance with the cardassians many Jem'hadar where heldon Cardassia and eventualy intergrated into households as personal protection staff....I myself have a Hybrid cardasian Jem'hadar in my service but he would seem to be un-welcome in the unions service
A Hybrid anything with Cardassian falls under Alien generic (which is accepted). IF your character believed and lived as a Cardassian.
A full fledged Alpha Jem Hadar would not be accepted. They invaded Devos II in the name of the founder (according to STO archives). So, we treat the full fledged as enemies to the state.
Now, remember that there are a lot of "racist" among Cardassians and if you look to much like a Jem Hadar many Cardassians would treat you with disdain unless they knew you growing up. Many Soldiers (well old school Defense Force guys and former Soldiers) and those whom lost most or all of their families due to Jem Hadar's last action on Cardassia Prime... Many would still hold a grudge.
THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THE JEVONITE ORDER IS TO HAVE FUN WITH A CARDASSIAN THEME.
1. WE ARE COLLECTING CARDASSIAN LOCK BOXES AND GRADUALLY OPENING THEM IN HUNT FOR AS MANY GALOR CLASS CRUISERS.
I will be depositing any ships into my account bank and members will be provided a ship after completing their first month of membership (supply dependent and seniority by approval date will apply) until all members of the fleet have the opportunity to fly in a Cardassian vessel. Members must meet the rank requirements to fly the vessel. Current inventory is classified.
2. WE WILL NOT HAVE A FLEET STATION UNTIL CARDASSIANS ARE PROVIDED A PLAYABLE FACTION/SPECIES.
We will focus on back stories, Roleplaying scenes, and having fun until then.

The CUV Delmar had been assigned to defend the Avenal system deep within Cardassian space. Even as all Jem Hadar and Breen forces consolidated around Cardassia Prime, Gul Nador's orders remained. The days leading up to this final battle were quite stressful for the military commander; She spent hours in her Command Office thinking of her three children currently staying with her parents on Cardassia Prime.
Marritza knew the end was coming for Cardassia; with the founder sacrificing three Orders so far in the war, she would certainly sacrifice the entire military to suit her cause. The reason Marritza was so far from the battle as were most of the Cardassian forces was the founder's attempt to prevent any sedition within the ranks during the fight. The Gul ordered her crew to strip the Galor down to the bare minimum for survival reasons and contacted several Ferengi merchants to conduct trades.
As the time approached the CUV Delmar was more a disaster aid vessel filled to the gills with food, water, medical supplies, blankets, tents, and various other support products. Most of the items were pretty worthless to the Ferengi merchants, but they always had a way of obtaining the items customers wanted.
Marritza had also sold two of the Distruptor Cannons for four more operational cargo ships filled with building materials. The crew thought she was crazy.
A chirp of her communication device alerted her to the arrival of Cardassia's most hated enemies and the beginning of the end for Cardassia. Marritza had her bridge officers patch the networks into her office as the battle lines had been drawn. As the strikes began, messages from the 2nd and 3rd Orders were being received keeping the non-combatants aware of the battle conditions. For a while it appeared as though the lines would hold; Marritza was astonished that this force with so much against it could possibly win this battle after all. Then came the report from the 11th Order defending sectors on Cardassia Prime.
