Meditations on a Crimson Shadow is a piece of Cardassian literature by the writer Eleta Preloc. It deals with the Cardassian Union's attempts to conquer the galaxy, and features wars between the Union and the Klingons, and United Federation of Planets.

It was a favorite novel of Elim Garak who gave away copies of the novel on at least two occasions. In the year 2370, he gave a copy to Julian Bashir, He read the novel but had to ask Garak who wins the war, to which he responded "Who do you think?". (DS9 episode: "The Wire")

He later gave the copy that belonged to Enabran Tain to Captain Jean-Luc Picard as a gift during the withdrawl of Federation and Starfleet personnel from Cardassia. (TNG novel: The Crimson Shadow)

The Loo Wess region of Cardassia features heavily in the novel. (ST reference: Federation Travel Guide)
