    In America, Adlai Stevenson has just won the election. The United States is also much more expansionistic than in our own timeline — it annexes Canada after the War of a conquest presumably made easier in this timeline by the absence of Loyalist American settlers to enlarge the Canadian population and Mexico after the Mexican—American War since, it is implied, the addition of numerous Northern, Free-Soil states following the conquest of Canada strengthened Southern demands for a reciprocal campaign to increase the number of slave-holding states with representation in Congress. First contact and escalation[ edit ] The Dominion was unknown to the Alpha Quadrant powers until the discovery of the Bajoran wormhole inwhich facilitated exploration of the Gamma Quadrant. The TNG tale is about Captain Picard's mission to destroy an artificial wormhole that the Dominion is building in order to bypass the minefield at the DS9 wormhole. Paramount did not favor the idea of a season-end cliffhanger which would have revealed the presence of shapeshifters on Earth.

    This four-volume series is exciting and fast-paced". Both Lefarge and Ingolfsson are killed in an epic battle in New York City when the Drakensis attempts to activate a beacon to allow the Draka scientists of FS several years having elapsed to lock a transit wormhole to the alternate However, in "The Dogs of War", Odo declares that this amounts to genocide of his species and is handed a treatment by Bashir. On approach to the station, Sisko discovered the minefield had been deactivated, but after his contact with a physical entity known as the Bajoran Prophets, the incoming Dominion reinforcements were moved by the Prophets to another dimension. How was it that Shinzon served the Romulan Empire with distinction during the war, as established in Star Trek Nemesis?

    A garrison of Klingon troops is stationed on Deep Space Nineunder the command of the real General Martok, rescued from Dominion incarceration with Bashir. And most of all, to the love of my life Terri Osborne, about whom I can't say enough good things, so I won't even try to say them all here. The Changeling later sabotages the Defiant and reprograms it to target the Tzenkethi in the hopes that the attack on the Tzenkethi will cause an outbreak of war, allowing the Dominion to conquer the Alpha Quadrant. Inthe Draka completed its conquest of Europe by using its remaining stockpile of 12 atomic bombs to force the Pyrenees—finally defeating a communist Spain following a different outcome to reality's Spanish Civil War. In the time between and in the Domination's home timeline, the Samothracians attack the Domination's Earth via a series of wormholes laid between Alpha Centauri and Sol.

The Dominion of War book

InStar Trek: New Frontier debuted, with Peter David chronicling the adventures of an all-new ship and crew created just for the novels -- something that wouldn't have been imaginable before DS9. The Federation and Cardassians fought months of armed combat against the Klingons.

With the Cold War over, perhaps the Roddenberry optimism seems merely naive as headlines bring news of murderous divisions between Serbs and MuslimsKurds and TurksIsraelis and PalestiniansIrish Catholics and Protestantsand so on across an increasingly depressing globe. Of course not However, the Dominion went on the offensive again, capturing Betazed in a surprise assault.

These reports are justified in " Sanctuary ", when a large fleet of Skrreea ships appears in the Alpha Quadrant, in search of a new homeworld in light of the conquest of their original planet by Dominion forces.

Aftermath Edit The capital city on Cardassia Prime at the end of the war. However, it is not clear that this advanced method was the one used for the initial changes to human serfs in the early 21st century. The Draka employ the policy of "No peace beyond Luna," leading to frequent skirmishes in the inner solar system.

Odo then begins attempting to change the nature of the Dominion by convincing the Founders to re-evaluate their views on other species, as well as encouraging certain Vorta and Jem'Hadar to behave more independently.

Wars in this story are understood both as necessary to defend those values and as exceptions to the rule of peaceful progress. The big historical sweeps seem credible guesses: the newspaper tycoon Lord Beaverbrook — an isolationist, pro-German equivalent to Roth's President Lindbergh — is prime minister, with the British fascist leader Oswald Mosley as home secretary, while Churchill is the leader of an underground resistance movement that occasionally daubs V signs in public places.

Despite a burning desire to return to his home, he finds his people's philosophy — that which you can control cannot hurt you — abhorrent, and he asks to return to the Alpha Quadrant. A fanatical military government takes over Japan.

In this respect, one of the thrills of Dominion is to see a writer whose previous talent has been for the captivating dramatisation of real history in his five books about the Tudor sleuth, Matthew Shardlakeand the Spanish civil war novel Winter in Madrid creating an invented midth century Britain that has the intricate detail and delineation of JRR Tolkien's Middle Earth, though thankfully described in better prose.

DS9 : " Tear of the Prophets " Fleets Edit Ina small, seven ship fleet was assigned to patrol the Flortarios sectorto protect it against possible Dominion threats.

The producers wanted to portray the region as something other than "uncharted space", and avoid imitating the adventures of Star Trek: The Next Generation with another series of plots focusing primarily on themes of exploration.

The lost fleet was flung into the future and immediately began assaulting the Alpha Quadrant, unaware the war already concluded years prior. Gorkon, focusing on a vessel in the Klingon Defense Force.

Lincoln Geraghty praises the ending to the story arc and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as a series, and believes this is indicative of how the series manipulates the Star Trek ethos, identifying a theme of ambiguity as part of its continuing narrative.

DS9, " What You Leave Behind " The Founders themselves were nearly wiped out by a plague, which was revealed to be a biological weapon engineered by agents of the secret clandestine Federation agency Section 31who deliberately infected Odo with it, in the expectation that he would pass it through the Great Link.

Draka development of world domination ideology[ edit ] Under the influence of Draka philosophers such as Elvira Naldorssen, the traditional Draka white supremacism is replaced by Draka-supremacism, with the Draka viewing all of non-Drakan humanity as their cattle.

This turned out to be a ploy by the Dominion so that the Federation would assassinate Gowron and further intensify the rift between the Federation and Klingons due to the Klingon invasion of Cardassia. Legate Damar becomes more and more frustrated with the deadlocked conflict and his situation as a Dominion puppet.

Citizens primarily seek asylum due to personal convictions, while serfs simply want to escape their bondage. The Changeling later sabotages the Defiant and reprograms it to target the Tzenkethi in the hopes that the attack on the Tzenkethi will cause an outbreak of war, allowing the Dominion to conquer the Alpha Quadrant.

Thus, they will obey more willingly, making it possible for the Draka to be less harsh, giving rise to even further willingness to obey.

I must give thanks to the many people who aided me in ushering this book into existence: Jessica McGivney and Elisa Kassin, the in-house editors, who kept the mills grinding. This leads to an armed conflict between Starfleet vessels for the first time in a century, according to the Star Trek in-universe timeline.

Block, the wonderful person at Paramount who approves all this stuff, and does so with a keen eye, a fine sensibility, and a marvelous ability to catch things the rest of us are too dumb to notice.

Since we have a couple of hundred-plus pages, we can take the philosophies and problems in the script and expand them, fully exploring ideas, conflict, battle scenes, and other turmoil that can't be addressed in a minute show.
