The Romulan Star Empire had remained neutral during the first years of the Dominion War, although they were turning a blind eye to Dominion warships crossing through their territory to ambush Federation convoys and shipping. Captain Benjamin Sisko reasoned that the addition of the Romulan military could prove decisive in reversing the fortunes of the Dominion.
With the help of Elim Garak, a covert mission was carried out to implicate the Dominion in a planned invasion of Romulus. In response, the Romulan Empire officially declared war on the Dominion. Within hours, the Romulans struck fifteen enemy bases along the Romulan-Cardassian border, opening the Romulan front to the war. Although progress remained slow for the allies, the Romulans drove Dominion forces off of Benzar within months of joining the war effort.
