Cardassia

Post by Okwa »

Since I have the theme "Cardassia and the Cardassians" for my "Star Trek Anniversary" weeks this year, of course a picture of Cardassia can't be missing. I'll take two. :D
From 2373 to 2375, the Cardassians, who had joined the great power of the Gamma Quadrant, the Dominion, were involved in the Dominion War, which was considered "one of the bloodiest and most destructive wars in modern galactic history".

The first image shows Cardassia before the war, sometime between 2365 and 2370. A patrol consisting of a Keldon-Class and two Galor-Class ships returning to Cardassia. In the background, in orbit around Cardassia, six Marormar-type space yards and two Terok Nor-type stations can be seen. The Terrok Not-type stations serve both as primary orbital spaceports and, along with an extensive network of defense satellites, as an important part of the orbital defenses. Last, towering over everything, is Keldoror Marek. Keldoror Marek is the orbital outpost of the Cardassian Central Command, is the primary control station for the interplanetary and orbital defenses, and the location of several elite ground forces units. From here, these troops can reach any point on the planet and take over its defenses (or suppress protests/rebellions).

The second image shows Cardassia after the lost war, around the year 2390. A carrier group consisting of a Ghemor-class carrier/explorer, a Damar-class cruiser/deep-space explorer and three Galon- and Galda-class frigates each are approaching Cardassia. In orbit around Cardassia you can now see six Regula-III space stations and the Cardassia Repair Yard Complex, each built by the Federation during Cardassia's 11-year occupation after the Dominion War. In addition, there are two Cardassian Dukor-type space stations and Dukorgalda, the new orbital spaceport.
As a consequence of the last battle of the war, in which several thousand warships were involved, the entire Cardassian solar system is littered with debris from starships, space stations and defense installations.

Many thanks.
Well, that's the difference between a job and a hobby. The motivation for hobbies is sometimes greater. :salute

Very true and fixing bugs is a job, however, making Raylectron and the tools is not, it's a passion to me :salute
