- "Shall we begin again? How many lights are there?"
- - Madred to Picard in 2369
In 2389, Gul Madred, aquired the rights to several mineral rich planetoids and began building a large mining operation in the Septimus System. The following year, Madred and his followers, abusing the expansions in freedom of speech and assembly established by the Detapa Council, organized rallies promoting a return to the "true" ways of the Cardassian Union.
By 2392, many former Cardassian military officers were employed in Madred's mining facilities in the Septimus System, which, by that time, had grown enough to export their exploits, e.g., to rebuilding Romulan colonies. Claiming that the Cardassian Defense Force was unable to protect his mines from raiders, Gul Madred contacted Lamat'Ukan, leader of the Alpha-Jem'Hadar, in 2393 in order to hire a private security force against the protest of the Detapa Council. By 2402, Cardassian Intelligence confirmed that at least 75 Galor Class-warships missing since the end of the Dominion War were most likely in Gul Madred's possession.
Missions formerly involved
- “The Long Night”: The player apprehends Madred on Empok Nor, which Madred uses as a base of operations for a new Dominion, after he managed to forge an alliance between the Alpha Quadrant Jem'Hadar under Laas and his True Way.
- Although Madred is the same Gul, that tortured Jean-Luc Picard on Celtris III, the now removed mission “The Long Night” used to depict him much younger than Star Trek: The Next Generation. This might have been due to engine limitations to combine multiple "base complexions" at the game's launch or Cryptic has not acquired the rights to use the likeliness of David Warner. That said, in "The Long Night" Madred did in fact refer to himself as an old man.
