The battle is cited by Trekkies as proof the Romulans, Cardassians, and by extension the [[Federation]], have the ability to destroy a planet.  Warsies respond that the "30%" figure was due to the same cause as the false life-form readings, citing lack of visual evidence of destruction of such a large portion of the planet's surface and the fact that it was a Dominion trap.  However, even accepting it at face value, the [[Death Star]] indisputably dwarfs the firepower of a fleet of any twenty ships, be they Romulan, Cardassian, or Imperial.

* they meant surface area, not volume
 +
* they meant of the original target area and not the entire planet
