  • The Battle of Cardassia, the final battle of the Dominion War, was an incredibly hard fought and savage campaign that, by its end, resulted in the death of over 800 million Cardassians and the near total destruction of the entire Cardassian infrastructure. In late 2375, a combined armada consisting of starships from the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire, and the Romulan Star Empire carried out an operation that was intended to be a knock-out punch, ending the war in one decisive battle. This battle, fought over the home system of the Cardassian Union, Cardassia Prime, succeeded, at great cost, in finally ending the bloody conflict between the Federation Alliance and the Dominion and its Breen and Cardassian allies as, with the capture of the Founder, the Dominion forces in the Alpha Quadrant surrendered unconditionally. The long and bloody Dominion War was finally over. The Battle of Cardassia, however, was not just a set-piece battle fought between fleets of starships. Events taking place on Cardassia Prime played a crucial role in the successful resolution of hostilities. The insurgents participating in the Cardassian Rebellion led by Legate Damar played a vital part in disrupting Dominion communications and support. The Rebellion proved to be such a thorn in the Founder's side that she issued orders to the Jem'Hadar to exterminate the Cardassian population, leading to the deaths of over 800 million Cardassian civilians. This act of genocide caused the Cardassian ships participating in the battle to turn on their former Dominion allies at a crucial point, leading to an Alliance victory in space. Finally, without the actions of Legate Damar's group, the battle would have been a far bloodier affair than it already was. A team of insurgents including Elim Garak and Kira Nerys successfully stormed the Founder's headquarters, taking her prisoner. With the timely intervention of Constable Odo, the Founder was convinced to surrender unconditionally, averting a costly ground campaign that would surely have resulted in even more horrific loss of life and destruction than had already taken place.(DS9: "What You Leave Behind")
