The Klingon-Cardassian Alliance is the dominant power in the Alpha Quadrant and is currently at war with the Terran Rebellion.


Unity and Victory[]

The Alliance was formed as the historic union of the Klingons and the Cardassians in the face of unprovoked aggression from the Terran Empire. Following a glorious war, the Alliance conquered the Terran Empire. The ease of the defeat was partially due to a series of reforms by Spock, the leader of the Empire, that left it vulnerable to attack. After its victory, the Alliance liberated the Empire's subjugated species and enslaved the Terrans. Included in the list of liberated planets was Bajor, the scene of infamous events later in Alliance history.

The Rebellion[]

In 2370, near the Alliance station Terok Nor, a Federation runabout from the mirror universe appeared before an Alliance patrol. While aboard the station, the runabout's crew, Kira Nerys and Julian Bashir, spread their message of hate and incited a rebellion among the Terrans, led by Benjamin Sisko. (DS9: "Crossover")

The Alliance heroically attempted to defeat the Terran Rebellion, but the rebels cowardly eluded justice at almost every turn. The Rebels set up their criminal operation in the Badlands in 2371, from where they proceeded to launch raids against innocent Alliance targets. During this time, the Alliance was able to bring the rebel leader, Benjamin Sisko, to justice. (DS9: "Through the Looking Glass")

In 2372, the Alliance suffered a minor setback when the Rebellion managed to capture Terok Nor. Regent Worf personally led the assault fleet that attempted to recapture the station, but that fleet was defeated thanks to a powerful new warship the rebels had hurriedly constructed. (DS9: "Shattered Mirror")

The Alliance suffered a further minor setback during an operation in which Regent Worf attempted to obtain a cloaking device from the mirror universe. Due to the scheming of three dishonest Ferengi, Regent Worf himself was captured along with the Alliance's flagship by the rebels and taken to Terok Nor in chains. (DS9: "The Emperor's New Cloak")


The Alliance is led by a regent who delegates authority to various intendants, who in turn administer the individual sectors of Alliance territory. As of 2372, the Alliance is ruled by Regent Worf.
