The Eleventh Order was a division of the Cardassian military that was, according to Klingon General Martok, a reserve unit that was composed of "old men and walking wounded." They were stationed on Septimus III during the Dominion War.
Damar was fearful of an impending Klingon attack and asked Weyoun to send reinforcements, which Weyoun promised to do. However, he had no interest in protecting these Cardassian troops, as by this time the Cardassians were viewed as being as disposable as Jem'Hadar.
In 2375, all 500,000 members of the Order were sacrificed by the Dominion when Septimus III was attacked by and conquered by the Klingons. (DS9: "Strange Bedfellows") When Septimus III was conquered, word reached Damar quickly and Damar then confronted Weyoun as to why there was no action taken to protect the planet; Weyoun brushed off Damar, claiming that Septimus III was strategically worthless. The utter lack of empathy or respect for Cardassian soldiers Weyoun displayed in this response revealed to Damar that the Dominion were nothing more than occupiers using Cardassian soldiers for their own ends, prompting him to found the Cardassian Liberation Front.
