Right, so I was thinking the other day about the Dominion War, and about all the species involved. And how many should have participated that didn't. We know that that Bajorans, Tholians & Romulans (at least toward the start) signed a non-aggression treaty. At least, I'm pretty sure I remember someone saying the Tholians did. But other races: The Andorians, Vulcan's, Ferengi. They have combat-capable ships, yet what? They just sit in dock? We know the the Andorians have an Imperial Guard, and at one time had stronger ships than Starfleet. Yet we don't see them aiding in the Dominion War. Nor do we see Vulcan's doing so. We only ever see Federation, Klingon & Romulan vessels. This brings me to the Ferengi. Their D'Kora Class vessels are roughly the same strength as a Galaxy Class (if not, a little weaker). Considering the Dominion had issues with the Ferengi, namely when the kidnapped Moogi. The Grand Nagus could / should (even though he is old and useless) decided to fight. It would have been a strange but good sight to see a few D'Kora Class ships getting blown up along with the Miranda's. Then you've got all these other races. Personally I can't see why the Tholians didn't get involved (for either side). We know their ships are tough, they could have given a side much more for their money. Then we've got the Talarians. Granted, their ships would be the ones getting blown out of the stars (three of them can't even take on a Galaxy Class) so I don't see what use they'd have in a war. The point is, surely more species should / would have gotten involved in that war. The way I see it, it was either sign a non-aggression treaty, or join in with the actual fighting.

The point is not more species should participate in the war, but just remain neutral. Although, come to think of it, war does encourage development of technology must faster.

Well your right, a bit, i mean, the Federation didn't develop new technology, they had to use the old Miranda and Excelsior classes during the Dominion war

The Miranda's yes, they are old and useless, but I think the Excelsiors have some life left in them yet.

Sure you want to throw up some barricades (ships) for a possible invader. But what are you saying with, we never saw any ships? So we didn't see so many ships :uhm:

I'm saying that we didn't see ANY Vulcan or Andorain ships at all. It would have been nice to get a glimpse of a 24th century Andorian / Vulcan ship. We only know what their 22nd century ships look like, and they were pretty bland. But if they were involved in the war (which they were) then they should have been involved in more fighting. The way I see it, any species that has signed Federation Membership, was an enemy of the Dominion. And when you think about how many species are in the Federation... We didn't see any of their ships in the War. The Klingons and Romulans aren't even members of the Federation, yet we saw plenty of their ships.

Maybe because general interrest lies with the Romulans and Klingons?

I can't give an explenation for that exactly.

The way I see the Dominion war is that is they forced their own death by treating any member of the federation as enemies. You can't handle that many species against you. Not when you got spacial trade going on. Sure you can raid ships, but they will be protected soon enough. I'm just wandering how long they would be able to keep it going.

Yes I would of liked to of seen the ships from the other species, would of given it a more cool approach seeing Andorians, Vulcan ships fighting alongside Federation ones. I guess as said all the Vulcan/Andorian etc ships protected their planets.

Ironic that. The amount of times it was said in DS9 that the Dominion is unstoppable, and would eventually win (even said by them enhanced people Bashir worked with). Yet, surely all the Federations Allies / memberships would have been one hell of an overwhelming force.... yet, they weren't...

Either they don't have a lot of ships, or they were over-protecting their planets :lol:
