In the pipe, five by five...
Interesting. The ad in the box says the Cardassians are "available now" while the Ferengi were due in December. I took this to mean that the Cardassians would be available at the time the game hit retail, but these things change. Bummer.
The Cardassians were supposed to be available at GenCon, but apparently there was some kind of issue that delayed them. Since none of the Cardassian demos at GenCon included starbase tokens, I'm guessing there was a manufacturing problem.
