* Federation and Romulan Republic (Federation) players get this story arc. *
They added Task Force Operations to almost every main story arc. Since I already completed this before the TFO addition, I don't know if TFO is required for this achievement. Please let me know if you find out!
There are 5 total missions(episodes) in the Cardassian Struggle story arc. Many of them are given to you by Commander Sarish Minna and Commander Mesi Achebe after you report the previous completed mission to them. Most missions involve traveling to a part of space, doing battle with enemy ships in the area, then transporting to a location where you'll do some exploring and battling enemy personnel. Be sure to loot crates found in each area and to equip your mission reward gear and promotion skills as you get them.
I've done this with my Fed character but not with my Romulan character yet. If you know the Romulan arc differs greatly from this arc, please let me know.
