The Federation Alliance was the accord between the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire, and the Romulan Star Empire to combat the Dominion and its allies during the Dominion War.

The Gorn Hegemony also joined the Federation Alliance in late 2374, but only to provide material and repairs to any allied ship which required it. (TNG comic: "The Gorn Crisis"; ST novel: Articles of the Federation)

The first military engagement between Federation Alliance and Dominion forces occured at the First Battle of Chin'toka in 2374. This first engagement was a great success for the Alliance and became a major turning point in the war. During the Battle of Cardassia, the Cardassian Union switched sides and aided the Federation Alliance in overcoming the Cardassian's former allies.

Following the war the Federation and allies were ready to battle the Dominion again following an attack on Deep Space 9 in April of 2376. A task force was assembled in the Gentarist system ready to enter the Gamma Quadrant and meet Dominion forces head on. Fortunately it was revealed the Jem'Hadar attack was by a rogue faction so the incursion was cancelled following a briefing of representatives of the allies on DS9. (DS9 novels: Avatar, Book One, Avatar, Book Two)
