Although fighting ended in 2366 when a ceasefire was agreed between the two powers, the state of war wasn't formally ended until 2370 with the signing of the Federation-Cardassian Treaty of 2370. (Last Unicorn RPG module: Ship Recognition Manual, Volume 1: The Ships of Starfleet)
Early relations of the two governments were tense due in large part to Cardassian secrecy, and the Federation's efforts to show trust were undermined by incidents such as the sabotage of Ambassador Sarek's summit meeting with the Legarans at Vulcan in 2327. (ST comic: "Enter the Wolves")
One major engagement of the war was the Setlik III Massacre, in which the Cardassians launched a ground invasion of a Federation-controlled system (initially believing a weapons depot to be located there), with the Cardassians ultimately annexing the Setlik system and slaughtering many Federation civilians there. (TNG episode: "The Wounded"; DS9 episode: "Emissary"; ST novella: The Slow Knife)
- There have been few details established about this war to date, including its causes, duration, and intensity.
In an alternate universe accessed by an interdimensional Androssi device, the Federation-Cardassian War lasted longer than in the primary universe. Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard was executed by Gul Elim Garak at some point during the war. (SCE eBook: Lost Time)
