  • Cardassian Liberation Front
rdfs:comment
  • The Cardassian Liberation Front was the Cardassian resistance led by Corat Damar that formed towards the end of the Dominion War. The groups aim was to combat the Dominion and drive their "oppressors" from Cardassian Union space. (DS9 episodes: "The Dogs of War", "What You Leave Behind")
  • The Cardassian Liberation Front, also known as the Cardassian Rebellion, was a popular uprising led by Legate Damar against the occupation of the Cardassian Union by the Dominion in 2375. Although the revolt had little military impact and was quickly crushed by the Jem'Hadar, the uprising nonetheless had a great effect on the outcome of the Dominion War by forcing the Dominion to divert resources to quelling the rebellion, just as they were poised to launch a massive assault against the Federation, Klingons, and Romulans. Ultimately, the rebellion allowed the allies to win the war at the Battle of Cardassia, although their actions would have devastating consequences for Cardassia Prime.

  • The Cardassian Liberation Front, also known as the Cardassian Rebellion, was a popular uprising led by Legate Damar against the occupation of the Cardassian Union by the Dominion in 2375.

Ultimately, the rebellion allowed the allies to win the war at the Battle of Cardassia, although their actions would have devastating consequences for Cardassia Prime. The Cardassian Liberation Front should not be confused with the Cardassian Underground, which was a Cardassian dissident movement formed to oppose the rule of the Central Command. When the Cardassian Liberation Front was being conceived and Hans Beimler observed to Ronald D. Moore that his perspective of Damar as a rebel leader was much like Spartacus, Moore, latching onto the idea, agreed that he wanted the rebelling Cardassians to be akin to the Roman slave revolt Spartacus led. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Companion, p. 690) It was important to Moore and RenĂ© Echevarria, while they were writing "The Dogs of War" , for the Cardassian rebellion "to be on the verge of the people rising up," in Echevarria's words.
