Battle of Cardassia

Cardassia in ruins

Cardassia lies in ruins

The Battle of Cardassia was the final battle of the Dominion War, fought in late 2375. The Federation Alliance, the forces of the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire, and the Romulan Star Empire, launched an invasion of the Dominion-held Cardassian Union, with the goal of capturing the Dominion's capital on Cardassia Prime. The battle would ultimately lead to the Dominion's unconditional surrender of all forces in the Alpha Quadrant.

The events of the battle must also be considered alongside concurrent events on Cardassia Prime in the final stages of the Cardassian Rebellion, led by Legate Damar. The sabotage committed by the Cardassian insurgents played an important role in disrupting Dominion communications and support behind the front lines, and ultimately led to the Cardassian military switching sides. Before the battle was over, however, more than 800 million Cardassian civilians would be killed by Dominion genocide, leaving the once-proud capital planet in ruins.

Nominated en mass in 2004 with the rest of the other five Dominion War battles at the time. This article would require a blurb if reconfirmed, and I have no opinion either as of yet on if it should. - Archduk3 18:02, April 7, 2012 (UTC)

  • Support. I've done a once over on this and I think it's still FA material. - Archduk3 16:49, April 9, 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. Still an excellent article. 31dot 10:03, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. I removed a red link ("civilian") because I don't think we need this link. My only concern is about the huge portion of free space after the first paragraph ("Prelude"). The image on the right looks lost, IMO. Tom 19:16, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

First Battle of Chin'toka

The First Battle of Chin'toka was the first offensive launched by the Federation Alliance into territory held by the Dominion during the Dominion War. The battle, fought in late 2374, was a tactical and psychological victory for the allies, but failed to lead to a general invasion of Cardassian space. The heavy losses sustained in the battle forced the Allies to remain bottled up in the system so they were not able to advance any further, and as a result were easily contained by the Dominion. The system remained under almost constant attack until it was re-taken following the Dominion's alliance with the Breen.

Apart from the short and successful campaign to retake starbase Deep Space 9 during Operation Return about eight months previously, the Federation and Klingon Empire was fighting a wholly defensive war. Key planets, including Betazed, Coridan, and Benzar, had all fallen to the Jem'Hadar, while the Federation core worlds of Vulcan, Alpha Centauri, and Earth were coming into range of the Dominion war machine.

However, with the sudden entry of the Romulan Star Empire into the war, the allies had enough combined firepower to launch a full offensive on Dominion-held territory. Starfleet Command, in conjunction with the Klingon and Romulan high commands, agreed that the war could be won only by taking the war into enemy territory.

A FA from back in 2004. I haven't had the time to take a look at it yet. - Archduk3 18:02, April 7, 2012 (UTC)

  • Support, though I don't recall where resistance from Cardie and Dominion soldiers in the ground assault was mentioned. 31dot 10:09, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. I removed the resistance sentence, since I wasn't able to find any mention of it in "Tears of the Prophets" or "The Siege of AR-558". - Archduk3 16:57, April 10, 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. My only concern is again the huge portion of free space following the prelude. Is there any way to fix this? Tom 19:16, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

I'm not seeing this free space, assuming I understand what you're talking about. Could it be a browser or skin based issue? - Archduk3 19:28, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

I am talking about the portion between "Prelude" and "The Battle" caused by the sidebar. It is possible that this is skin based. The same for me as mentioned above in Battle of Cardassia. Tom 19:34, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

Patricia Tallman

Enterprise-D Female Security Officer

... as a security officer

Patricia Tallman is a stuntwoman and actress who appeared in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager, and in the seventh feature film Star Trek: Generations.

Outside the Star Trek universe she is best known for her role as "Lyta Alexander", a telepath, on the science fiction television series Babylon 5.

Tallman first worked with Dennis Madalone on the set of Shocker, and this led to an appearance in the TNG episode "Power Play", where she played a security officer. This single appearance was followed by a long-term relationship with Star Trek, as Tallman became part of the core stunt group. Because of her height and resemblance she doubled lead actresses Gates McFadden and Nana Visitor – as well as several guest actresses – for the next eight years, played stunt acting parts as a Romulan, Bajoran, and several other aliens, and coordinated fight scenes in such episodes as "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places".

A FA from 2005. It still seems well written and comprehensive to me, and I think its status should continue. 31dot 10:24, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

  • Support. - Archduk3 17:25, April 11, 2012 (UTC)
  • Support. As a main contributor to this article I would be delighted about a reconfirmation as featured article. I am updating the article frequently. Tom 19:16, April 11, 2012 (UTC)
