The True Way was a Cardassian terrorist organization that operated in the 2370s. They believed the Federation to be the greatest threat to the Cardassian people, and the cause of the Cardassian Union's economic and political difficulties. Until 2372 they had never committed any acts of terrorism against the Federation or Bajor.

In 2372, they detonated a bomb that destroyed the runabout USS Orinoco, which was carrying the senior officers of Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Our Man Bashir")

Later that year, members of the True Way unsuccessfully attempted to assassinate Bajoran First Minister Shakaar Edon on Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Crossfire")

It is unclear whether or not the True Way remained active when Cardassia allied itself with the Dominion in DS9: "By Inferno's Light"
Ronald D. Moore commented: "I think this group was made irrelevant when the Cardassians joined the Dominion. I think our initial concepts were that they were a sort of fundamentalist group dedicated to the return of the old Cardassian government." (AOL chat, 1997)



The True Way reemerged in 2376, where they tried to destabilize the new Cardassian government. Elim Garak revealed that he once joined the group to spy on them. (DS9 Pocket: Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Volume 1)

The True Way emerged once more in 2383 to denounce the resurgence of the Oralians, a religious group that dated back to the Hebitian civilization and was previously outlawed. By 2409, they had become deeply rooted in Cardassian space, waging a campaign of terror and fear throughout the region in an attempt to expel the Federation, and to return Cardassia to its old ways.
