The Cardassian Struggle story arc is a chain of cross-faction missions available to all factions.

After the Dominion War ended, Cardassian Union signed a peace treaty with the Federation giving up the right to field a military or wage a war. In return, Starfleet has been assigned to protect the Cardassian space from a potential invasion. A secret terrorist organization, the True Way, fights to return the Union to its former glory and reinstate the Obsidian Order.

Commander Sarish Minna of Deep Space Nine has requested aid in reacquiring a Bajoran relic stolen by the True Way. To defeat the True Way, you will need to uncover the location of their base in the Badlands and identify their supporters.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The "Cardassian Struggle" arc (and "Dominion Domination" for Klingon players) was reworked as part of Season Eleven: New Dawn. Most of the missions were removed, some were condensed or replaced with a completely new plot. Only “The New Link” retains some of the original story. For more information on the removed missions, see here.
  • Despite its name, the new Cardassian Struggle story arc has a larger focus on the Terran incursions and the Alpha Jem'Hadar, and not on the Cardassian Union. The role of the True Way, who are supposed to be the main antagonists of the arc, has also been somewhat minimized.
