Cardassian Union

The Cardassian Union is the official governing body of the Cardassian people. The capital world is Cardassia Prime. The Cardassian Union is regarded as one of the great powers in the Alpha Quadrant.

The Cardassian military is led by the Central Command and the Cardassian forces are divided into several orders. The Obsidian Order, the intelligence agency of the Union, is sometimes referred to as part of the structure of the Cardassian military orders.

Prior to 2372, the Obsidian Order held de facto control of the Union, alongside the Central Command. Following that, the Union was brought into the Gamma Quadrant-based Dominion. But after the defeat of the Dominion and the sacking of Cardassia Prime, the Union has rebuilt under the leadership of the civilian Detapa Council, which now exerts supremacy over the Central Command and the Obsidian Order.
