Publisher’s Summary

When the Doctor loses both Sam and the TARDIS after an encounter with a mysterious dimensional anomaly, he finds himself affected in a very fundamental way, doubting his own powers and making crucial errors of judgment.

Stranded amongst the forests and lakes of southern Sweden in the summer of 1999, it quickly becomes clear to the Doctor and Fitz that something unusual -- and dangerous -- is afoot. Fitz finds himself acting the hero as the search for Sam gets them involved with investigations into strange disappearances - and manifestations of even stranger creatures.

Events quickly spiral out of control as the Doctor and Fitz become entangled with a secret deep beneath the forest, a secret which could save Sam and an entire doomed alien race -- but destroy the Earth in the process.

The Dominion was an interstellar empire, located in the Gamma Quadrant. It was founded and led by a group of Changelings called the Founders, who over some 2000 years conquered countless worlds across the Gamma quadrant, maintaining order with their genetically modified minions and armies; the Vorta and the Jem'Hadar.

History

Contact with the Alpha Quadrant

The Dominion made first contact with the Federation when they briefly captured Commander Benjamin Sisko, commanding officer of Deep Space 9, his son Jake Sisko, Jake's best friend Nog and Nog's uncle Quark in the year 2370 on a planet in the Gamma quadrant. Relations were immediately strained when Jem'Hadar fighters destroyed the USS Odyssey which had been sent to rescue Sisko and the party. (DS9 episode: "The Jem'Hadar")

Tensions grew between the Dominion and the major Alpha Quadrant powers, however by 2373, Gul Skrain Dukat of the Cardassian Union managed to strike a deal with the Dominion and the two governments formed an alliance. (DS9 episode: "By Inferno's Light")

The Dominion War

See also: Dominion War.

By the end of that year the Federation officially went to war with the Cardassian-Dominion alliance. (DS9 episode: "Call to Arms")

The war raged for two years with the Dominion gradually becoming more oppressive over their Cardassian hosts in the Alpha Quadrant whilst the Federation lead an alliance including the Klingons and Romulans to fight the Dominion threat.

In 2375 the war came to an end with the defeat of the Dominion by the Federation alliance aided both by rebellious Cardassians and intervention of the changeling Odo's linking with the Founder leading the Dominion forces. (DS9 episode: "What You Leave Behind")

Post-War

A peace treaty was drawn up between the Dominion and the major powers of the Alpha Quadrant and the Dominion retreated back into the Gamma Quadrant.

Within their home territory news of the major defeat spread leading to some rebellions on subject worlds. They were quickly crushed by the Jem'Hadar.

Odo, who had joined the Founders, sent a Jem’Hadar envoy named Taran'atar to Deep Space 9 to gain the Dominion a greater understanding of the Alpha Quadrant's cultures. However, Taran'atar’s ship was attacked en route by a group of Jem'Hadar who felt shamed for their defeat in the war, and continued on to try and destroy DS9 and reignite the conflict. Fortunately Taran'atar's damaged vessel was able to catch up with the rogue group and help end their attack.

Several of the Jem'Hadar managed to beam to the station before their ships were destroyed. Remaining shrouded Taran'atar was able to track down and dispatch these Jem'Hadar, but he was not able to stop Kitana'klan from destroying DS9's fusion core.

The initial attack had provoked the Federation Alliance to put together a task force which planned to enter the Gamma Quadrant and meet an expected Dominion force head on. Fortunately Taran'atar was able to explain the situation and the plan was called off. Taran'atar informed the allies that the Dominion intended to remain within its borders for the time being and that the Alpha Quadrant races were welcome to explore the Gamma Quadrant. (DS9 novel: Avatar)

Meanwhile in the Alpha Quadrant another small force of rogue Jem'Hadar refused to accept the treaty and had not returned to the Gamma Quadrant with the rest of the Dominion's forces. A Starfleet task force led by the USS Enterprise-E and the USS Jupiter destroyed several Jem'Hadar vessels still operating in the Barisa system. Around the same time the Borg assimilated or destroyed several other Jem'Hadar vessels and facilities in the quadrant, including a Dominion cloning facility which they used to clone Jean-Luc Picard to make a new version of Locutus. (TNG video game: Armada)

Alternate reality

In an alternate timeline where Bajor was never liberated from the Cardassian Union, the Dominion made contact with the Cardassians who secretly discovered the Bajoran wormhole. The discovery of a stable wormhole was the Central Command's biggest secret who sought to ensure that the other interstellar governments did not learn of it. Through their explorations, they learnt of the Dominion and formed an alliance with them with the intention of conquering the Alpha Quadrant. To that end, they covertly dispatched Changelings to take the form of high ranking leaders of the Federation, Klingon and Romulan governments after which they incited conflicts between the factions in order to weaken them for an eventual Dominion invasion. Their plans were revealed to Starfleet by Kira Nerys, Quark and Odo after which the Federation dispatched a cloak outfitted USS Enterprise to destroy the Bajoran wormhole thus cutting off the Cardassians from their Gamma Quadrant allies, while sending the USS Defiant to warn the Klingon government. With the recent discovery of their infiltration, two of the four Founder's in the Alpha Quadrant were killed when the remaining two attempted to rally their forces for a continued war against the weakened Federation, Klingon and Romulans with the hope that they would eventually develop starships allowing for them to recontact their Gamma Quadrant kin. (DS9 novel: A Gutted World)

Politics

The Founders served as the heads of state for the Dominion and were considered gods by the genetically engineered Vorta and Jem'Hadar. Administrative duties themselves, however, are handled by the Vorta. (DS9 episode: "To the Death"; DS9 novel: Abyss)

After forging diplomatic relations with the Cardassians, the Cardassian Union became a part of the Dominion. (DS9 episode: "By Inferno's Light")

Member Races

The more notable member races include:

Military

The naval and army wing of the Dominion was completely dominated by the feared Jem'Hadar soldiers who would brutally fight off the enemies of the Founders as well as suppress rebellions. The Vorta served as commanders for the Jem'Hadar and ensured that they remained loyal by giving out The White. (DS9 episodes: "The Abandoned", "To the Death")

All Jem'Hadar, regardless of rank, are individually capable of self destructing their outposts or bases. This was a requirement especially when the Jem'Hadar were fighing to the last man who was needed to destroy their installations rather then allow them to fall into enemy hands. This was done so by speaking the word "self destruct" in the Jem'Hadar's own language which was unknown to races outside the Dominion. (DS9 novel: Time's Enemy)

Territory

Dominion territory extended through a large part of the Gamma Quadrant, expanding out of the original location of the Changeling homeworld in the Omarion Nebula. Following a Tal Shiar/Obsidian Order attack on the homeworld in 2371 the Founders moved the Great Link to a new world further out in Dominion space and away from the Gamma Quadrant terminus of the Bajoran wormhole. (DS9 episode: "The Die is Cast"; ST reference: Star Trek: Star Charts)

Throughout the Dominion War the Dominion also occupied the space of the Cardassian Union. This space was returned to the Cardassians and Federation Allies following the conflict. (DS9 novel: Warpath, et al.)

The Dominion were a powerful galactic empire from the Gamma Quadrant.

History

The Dominion was founder over 10,000 years ago by a race of changelings who later became known as the "Founders". Having been persecuted by "solids" for many years, they discovered a rogue planet and decided to impose "order on a chaotic universe". They began enforcing their will on lesser species and elevated races such as the Vorta to sentience. Around 2,000 years ago, the Founder's genetic sciences evolved to the point where they could create entirely new species from scratch. From this, they created the Jem'Hadar, the most brutal soldiers in the known galaxy. (The Dominion War Sourcebook: The Fires of Armageddon)
