When Star Trek: Deep Space Nine needed a villain they came up with the Dominion. Several races working together toward a common goal, they act as a mirror to the Federation. Although not one held together through shared ideals, but by fear, genetic manipulation and forced deification. The Dominion, and in particular the war that followed their introduction, helped to define DS9 and further mark it out as different to its contemporaries.
Astonishingly, it is twenty-five years since the Dominion were the new kids on the block and I wrote this in celebration.
