プロローグ

Sisko:Captain's log: Supplemental.
O'Brien only needed three more days to restore main power to our commandeered Dominion ship but he won't get them.
Sensors have detected two Jem'Hadar fighters heading our way, and without main power our chances of survival are slim to none.
O'Brien:Try it now.
Reroute the damned gyrodyne through the damned thruster arrays.
Nog:Got it.
Sisko:Mr. Garak, where are those ships now?
Garak:A bearing three-one-zero, mark two-one-five.
Still closing.
O'Brien:Nog, did we route that damned gyrodyne?
Nog:I'm trying but the damned thruster won't take the input.
O'Brien:Try the lateral input thrusters, and watch your mouth.
Access the auxilliary core through the starboard engineering console.
Dax:No power to weapons or shields.
Sisko:A dark-matter nebula is 60 degrees above the bow.
Can we reach it?
Dax:Yes, but that nebula's never been charted-- it's unknown.
Garak:The Jem'Hadar ships are entering weapons range.
Sisko:Dax!
Get us into the nebula-- full impulse!
Sisko:Sisko to Bashir, medical emergency.
O'Brien:Helm control is gone.
Bashir:You'll be feeling better any second now.
She's got a puncture of the right abdominal cavity.
The symbiont may be injured.
O'Brien:Sensors are gone, impulse engines off-line.
In fact, everything's off-line.
Emergency power's holding for now.
Sisko:Mr. Garak, take a look outside.
Garak:Just a moment.
Sisko:What happened?
O'Brien:I don't know.
We must have been hit by a gravitational...
Garak:Oh, no!
Sisko:Mr. Garak!
Garak:Hold on!

チャプター 1

Limara'Son:We have established a defense perimeter around the entrance to the cabin.
I've sent two patrols to reconnoiter the shoreline in both directions.
The Vorta's condition has worsened.
He will die soon.
Remata'Klan:What about the First and the Second?
Limara'Son:I vaporized their bodies myself and redistributed their equipment to the rest.
You are now the First.
Remata'Klan:No. I questioned the Vorta's orders.
He will not forget that.
As long as he lives, I will remain Third.
Limara'Son:You were right to question him.
If he had not ordered us into the nebula two days ago we would not have crashed.
Remata'Klan:It was not my place.
Remember, obedience brings victory.
Limara'Son:And victory is life.
Remata'Klan:Until we reestablish communications we will hold this world for the Dominion.
Limara'Son:And if we cannot reestablish communications?
Remata'Klan:Then we will hold this world for the Dominion until we die.
---
Garak:Cadet, this is no time to lie down on the job.
Sisko:Heave!
Heave!
One more, now-- heave!
Okay, how is she?
Bashir:She's stable for now.
Garak! I need a hand.
O'Brien:Oh, no.
Sisko:What?
O'Brien:I don't believe it.
Sisko:What?
O'Brien:I tore my pants.
Sisko:You... you tore your pants.
O'Brien:Yeah, I tore my pants.
I guess...
I guess I'm really in trouble now, huh?
---
Computer:The time is 0500 hours.
Kira:Thank you, Mavek.
---
Keevan:This must be quite gratifying for you but I've decided not to give you the pleasure of watching me die in this foul-smelling cavern.
I intend to live.
Remata'Klan:I understand.
Keevan:How long until we've reestablished communications?
Remata'Klan:Seventh Yak'Talon estimates that it will take at least ten days before we can attempt a low-power test.
Keevan:Ten days.
Remata'Klan:It is time for the white.
Keevan:Yes.
Keevan:The Third Remata'Klan...
Can you vouch for the loyalty of your men?
Remata'Klan:We pledge our loyalty to the Founder from now until death.
Keevan:Then receive this reward from the Founders.
May it keep you strong.
Limara'Son:Only one?
Remata'Klan:Keep your place.
Keevan:This case of white must last until we're rescued-- at least ten days possibly more.
I will ration the supply.
Don't worry.
I am the Vorta.
I will take care of you all.
---
Garak:Lucky for you, it ripped on the seam.
O'Brien:Can you fix it?
Garak:Unlucky for you my sewing kit went down with the ship.
Neeley:Maybe someone could go get it.
Ship's only about 500 meters below the surface.
O'Brien:How long can you hold your breath, Cadet?
Sisko:Madame, your pants are ready.
Dax:Your boots and vest will take a little longer.
Sisko:While you wait I might suggest that you browse through the hotel's gift shop.
Dax:No, thank you, but I would like to lodge a complaint.
This bed is as hard as a rock.
Sisko:I will make note of that.
What's the prognosis?
Bashir:Guarded, but good.
The bleeding's stopped and I've repaired all the internal injuries.
The damage to the symbiont is a little harder to diagnose, and given enough rest I think they'll both make a full recovery.
Dax:In other words, I'm going to be staring at this cave ceiling for the rest of my stay.
Sisko:Lucky for you, they have 24-hour room service.
I will get you out of here, old man, I promise.
Dax:I'm going to hold you to that one, Benjamin.
---
Garak:What are you doing?
Nog:Following orders.
Captain told us to scan the area for fresh water and vegetation.
Garak:You're deliberately staying behind me and I want to know why.
Does this have anything to do with that unfortunate business between us last year?
Nog:You tied me up and threatened to kill me.
Garak:There were extenuating circumstances.
Nog:It happened.
So you can either stay in front of me or walk beside me but I won't turn my back on you again.
Garak:Cadet, there may be hope for you yet.
Nog:What is it?
Garak:I'm not sure.
Garak:Now I'm sure.

チャプター 2

Keevan:How many others are there in your unit?
Nog:Nog-- Cadet Third Class, serial number CX-937-...
Garak:Shut up.
As I tried to explain to your men my name is Kamar, and I'm a member of the Cardassian Intelligence Bureau-- what used to be called the Obsidian Order.
A week ago, as I was performing my duties in the glorious service of the Founders I was captured by the U.S.S. Centaur.
I was held aboard one of their shuttles when we were forced...
Keevan:Excuse me, Mr. Kamar-- if that's really your name-- but if you're one of our allies, why were you wearing this?
Garak:Ah.
I was hoping you weren't going to ask me about that.
Keevan:I only have one further question for you.
Is there a doctor in your unit?
Garak:Yes.
Nog:Garak!
Keevan:Don't be too hard on him, young man.
He just saved your life.
Take them to a secure area.
Third...
I have a mission for you.
I want you to find the starfleet unit but do not engage them.
Locate them...
Assess their strength and then report back to me.
Remata'Klan:I understand.
Keevan:No, you don't.
But that's all right.
It's not important that you understand-- only that you carry out my instructions precisely.
Remata'Klan:Obedience brings victory.
Keevan:Yes... yes, it does.
Go.
---
Jake:I understand that a decision's been made to send 4,000 Dominion facilitators down to Bajor.
Would you care to elaborate?
Kira:It's only 400, and how did you hear about that?
The official announcement isn't scheduled until tomorrow.
Jake:I hear things.
So could you elaborate?
My readers want to know what's going on.
Odo:You don't have any readers.
Weyoun is still blocking the transmission of your stories.
Jake:For now, but what if he changes his mind?
Don't you want to explain what's going on here to the outside world?
Kira:Ever since the war started Bajor's been completely cut off from all outside trade.
We've had nowhere to turn for things like spare parts or medical supplies, nowhere-- except the Dominion.
So a group of facilitators is going to Bajor for a few months to provide some technical assistance.
Jake:How do you respond to critics like Vedek Yassim who say that by welcoming a group of Vorta to Bajor you're taking the first step towards Dominion occupation?
Odo:I have been assured that the facilitators will be unarmed and unaccompanied by any Jem'Hadar soldiers.
Jake:Odo, do you have any concerns that by joining the ruling council here on the station you're validating the occupation?
Odo:The Dominion doesn't need my validation.
They're here, and they're not leaving-- not without a fight, at least.
Kira:Are you finished?
Jake:Almost, almost.
Will either of you be attending the demonstration tomorrow?
Kira:The what?
Jake:Vedek Yassim has organized a demonstration on the promenade tomorrow afternoon to protest the Dominion occupation of the station.
Odo:That's all the excuse Dukat will need to order a new security crackdown.
Kira:I'll talk to Yassim.
Jake:So, you're going to abolish the right to protest here on the station?
Hey, I'm not trying to accuse you personally of anything.
I'm just asking questions.
Kira:I think this interview is over.
Odo:I couldn't agree more.
Jake:Wrong question, Jake.
---
O'Brien:I might be able to hard-wire one of our combadges into this sensor array.
That would give us a crude transmitter but no power source.
Sisko:What about draining one of our phasers?
O'Brien:I thought about that, but I need a converter to bridge the two power cells, and I can't build a converter without an ion-exchange matrix.
Sisko:Captain, I think we may have a problem.
Gordon:Garak and Nog haven't reported in yet and they're not answering my hails.
---
Neeley:Captain, there's a group of life forms up in the cliffs.
Range 75 meters, elevation 30 meters.
Sisko:That's where I'd be.
Are they Jem'Hadar?
Neeley:I think so.
Sisko:Let's not make it easy for them.
Tell the Chief to head toward that large outcropping of rocks at ten o'clock.
Walk, don't run.
Limara'Son:I can't take it...
Hold your fire!
Move out, go, go!
Go!

チャプター 3

Remata'Klan:Terminate fire!
Terminate!
Limara'Son:You have been ordered to stop firing!
Remata'Klan:Your orders were clear.
You were not to engage the enemy.
Who fired first?
Limara'Son:I did.
Remata'Klan:You are reduced to Sixth.
You will shroud and return to base camp.
Limara'Son:I am no longer able to shroud myself.
Remata'Klan:You, you.
Provide suppression fire as we withdraw.
Limara'Son:Understood.
Remata'Klan:Withdraw!
Limara'Son:Remata'Klan, I regret my disobedience.
O'Brien:Are they pulling out?
Sisko:Looks that way.
O'Brien:Why aren't they camouflaged?
Sisko:That's a good question.
Let's hope the answer is something in our favor.
Cease fire!
---
Keevan:Why were my orders disobeyed?
Remata'Klan:Lack of white produces anxiety among us.
One man could not restrain himself when he saw the enemy.
Keevan:Which man?
Remata'Klan:I have dealt with the matter.
Keevan:I asked for his name!
Remata'Klan:He is my responsibility.
Keevan:His name!
Remata'Klan:I may not be First, but I am the unit leader.
You may discipline me, but only I discipline the men.
That is the order of things.
Keevan:Very well.
I'll leave him to you.
Dismissed.
You've done well, Third.
You may yet become First.
Now... I have a new task for you.
---
Yassim:The Dominion is evil and the Prophets tell us that evil must be opposed.
Kira:You'll get no argument from me, Vedek, but protests and demonstrations aren't going to change anything.
They're just going to cause trouble for everyone.
Yassim:Then what would you have us do to oppose the Dominion?
Kira:I... I don't think there's anything you or the other vedeks can do right now.
Yassim:I see.
Then as the Bajoran liaison officer what will you be doing to fight the Dominion?
Kira:Fighting isn't an option.
This is different than the Cardassian occupation.
Yassim:Is it?
The Cardassian are in control of the station.
Bajoran freedoms are being curtailed one by one and soon the first wave of alien troops will be landing on our world.
Kira:We're talking about unarmed Vorta facilitators.
They come in, they do their job and they're gone.
Yassim:Can't you see what is happening to you?
You're becoming an apologist for them, a defender of evil.
What will it take to make you act, Kira?
To stop accepting them and start fighting back?
Kira:Vedek, you... you just don't understand.
Yassim:You are right.
I don't.
Maybe tomorrow... we will both understand.
---
Sisko:We'll set up three defensive positions: You and Ensign Gordon on the south ridge; Lieutenant Neeley near the lava tube; Bashir and I are in the dunes.
I'll stay here and guard my clothes.
Neeley:Neeley to Captain Sisko.
Sisko:Go ahead.
Neeley:A Jem'Hadar soldier has just approached my position, sir.
He says he wants to talk to you... alone.
Neeley:Captain?
Sisko:I'm Captain Benjamin Sisko.
Remata'Klan:Third Remata'Klan.
Two members of your unit are being held at our base camp.
We'll exchange them for you and your doctor.
Sisko:Why do you need a doctor?
Remata'Klan:The Vorta has been severely wounded.
Sisko:And why me?
Remata'Klan:The Vorta wishes to speak with you.
Sisko:Sounds like he wants to trade two low-ranking prisoners for two more valuable ones.
Would you make a deal like that?
Remata'Klan:No.
Sisko:Then why should I?
Remata'Klan:You shouldn't.
Sisko:You're not a very good negotiator, are you?
Remata'Klan:I was not sent to negotiate.
I was instructed only to deliver the terms.
Sisko:I see.
Well, then, I want to talk to someone who can negotiate.
I want to speak with your First.
Remata'Klan:There is no First.
Sisko:I take it there's no Second either.
Remata'Klan:I command the unit.
Sisko:Under the Vorta.
It must be hard... for a soldier to take orders from a Vorta.
Remata'Klan:The Vorta command the Jem'Hadar.
That is the order of things.
Sisko:Obedience brings victory.
I was on a mission with the Jem'Hadar once-- before the war, of course.
Oh, they were good, tough, professional.
It was an honor to serve with them...
But their Vorta.
He... was something different-- manipulative, treacherous... trusted by neither side.
In the end... he was killed... by the Jem'Hadar First.
Surprised?
Remata'Klan:Such things have been known to happen but they are rare and only occur in units that have lost discipline.
Sisko:Oh, you mean like a unit marooned on the shores of a deserted planet.
Remata'Klan:The Vorta has instructed me to give you his assurance that neither you nor your doctor will be harmed and you will both be free to leave after your meeting.
What is your response?
Sisko:The word of a Vorta carries very little weight with me.
Can I have your assurance that we'll be free to go, Remata'Klan?
Remata'Klan:I have been ordered to let you go free after your meeting.
You can be assured that I will obey that order.
Sisko:Very well.
We'll make the trade in one hour.
Remata'Klan:Agreed.
Dax:Sounded like you were actually getting through to him for a minute there.
Sisko:You can't break through all that Dominion conditioning in just one conversation.
Dax:Do you really think you can turn him against his Vorta?
Sisko:I don't know.
But there were at least seven Jem'Hadar soldiers up on that ridge this morning-- say at least two more at their base camp guarding their prisoners and their Vorta.
Without Nog and Mr. Garak on our side that gives them almost a two-to-one advantage.
Dax:I think I'd like to check out now.
Sisko:So would I, old man.

チャプター 4

Remata'Klan:You may go.
Garak:Don't get too far ahead, Nog.
We don't want to startle anyone.
Garak:Ah, good evening, Captain, Doctor.
Sisko:Are you two all right?
Garak:Perfect-- how are you?
Bashir:Felt better.
---
Kira:Anything yet?
Odo:Not yet.
There are two vedeks inside, but we've seen no indication they intend to leave the shrine.
Kira:What about Yassim?
Odo:She hasn't shown up.
Kira:Let's hope she doesn't.
The last thing I want to do is start arresting Bajoran civilians here on the promenade.
Kira:Don't think there's going to be any story here for you today, Jake.
Jake:Are you sure?
Kira:I got a message from Vedek Yassim saying the protest was starting at exactly 1400.
It certainly doesn't look like it.
Yassim:Evil must be opposed.
---
Keevan:Captain Sisko... my name is Keevan.
We have a lot to talk about.
Bashir:Not for a while you don't.
He needs immediate surgery.
Sisko:Now?
Bashir:I don't think I have any choice.
Bashir:I am a Doctor.
I'm not going to harm him.
Keevan:They're not here to protect me.
They've just never seen what the inside of a Vorta looks like.
---
Computer:The time is 0500 hours.
---
Sisko:How was the show?
Remata'Klan:Informative.
Keevan:I am alive.
Bashir:No self-diagnoses, please.
I'm the Doctor here.
Your internal hemorrhaging has stopped.
Your free-collagen levels are dropping.
Tissue growth factors have stabilized nicely and there's a 50% rise in cell oxygenation.
You... are alive.
Careful.
Your insides are being held together by cellular microsutures, and... a lot of hope.
Keevan:Leave us.
Take them with you.
Keevan:May I have that case, please?
Keevan:There are ten Jem'Hadar soldiers on this planet, Captain... and that is the only vial of ketracel-white we have left.
When it's gone, my hold over them will be broken and they'll become nothing more than senseless, violent animals.
They'll kill everyone they can... me, you, the rest of your men... and finally turn on each other.
Sisko:Why are you telling us this?
Keevan:I'm ordering the Jem'Hadar to attack your base camp in the morning.
But I will provide you with their precise plan of attack.
You should be able to kill them all.
Bashir:They're your own men.
Keevan:Yes.
Sisko:You still haven't answered my question.
Why are you doing this?
Keevan:That... that's a communications system.
It needs repair but I'm willing to bet that you've brought one of those famed starfleet engineers who can turn rocks into replicators.
You should have a lot more success at repairing it than a Jem'Hadar suffering from withdrawal.
Once you've taken care of the Jem'Hadar... I'll give you the com system and surrender to you... as a prisoner of war.
Bashir:And you spend the war resting comfortably as a Starfleet P.O.W. while your men lie rotting on this planet.
Keevan:I see we understand each other.
I'm going to order the Jem'Hadar to attack your position tomorrow regardless of whether you agree to my terms or not.
So you can either kill them... or they'll kill you.
Either way... they're coming.

チャプター 5

Sisko:And when they've reached this point... we'll have them in a crossfire.
Gordon:They won't have a chance.
Garak:Now, that is the point.
In case you've forgotten, we're in a war.
O'Brien:There are rules, Garak, even in war.
Garak:Correction-- humans have rules in war rules that tend to make victory a little harder to achieve in my opinion.
Gordon:So we just... shoot them down?
Neeley:They wouldn't hesitate if the situation was reversed.
Nog:But we're not the Jem'Hadar.
It is our duty...
Sisko:This isn't a vote!
The decision's mine.
And Mr. Garak is right-- we are at war.
Given the choice between us and them there is no choice.
Let's move out.
Dax:I'd say good luck but I... I don't think you're going to need it.
Sisko:Say it anyway, old man.
I'm still hoping there's another way out of this.
Dax:In that case... good luck, Benjamin.
---
Odo:Damar has been trying to contact you for the past five hours.
Kira:I keep going over it and over it in my mind.
And I can't believe that... that I stood there... ready to use force to stop a protest against the Dominion.
Me.
When I was in the resistance, I despised people like me.
I'm a collaborator, Odo.
Odo:That's not true.
You're doing exactly what Captain Sisko wanted you and the rest of Bajor to do-- remain neutral and stay out of the fighting.
Kira:We used to say in the resistance: If you're not fighting them, you're helping them.
Half the Alpha Quadrant is out there fighting for my freedom but not me.
What am I doing?
Eating a full meal every day, sleeping in a soft bed-- even write reports for the murderers who run this station.
Odo:These are difficult times for everyone.
Do you think it's easy for me to sit down with Dukat and Weyoun every day while they plot the destruction of the Federation?
Kira:Odo... I'm not pointing a finger at you.
I'm the one who told you to get more involved in the first place.
No, this is about me.
This is about being able to get up in the morning and look in the mirror and not feel nauseated by what I see.
Yassim was right.
I have to do something.
I have to start to fight back.
Odo:No, that would be a mistake.
Active resistance will trigger a crackdown...
Kira:Odo... I don't want to end up fighting you, too... but if I have to... I will.
Odo:All right.
But let's find a more discreet place to plan the new resistance.
---
Sisko:Remata'Klan... I want to talk!
Remata'Klan:Agreed!
Hold this position.
Do not fire unless they do.
Limara'Son:Understood.
Sisko:There's no way out of this canyon and we have phasers locked on every one of you.
Remata'Klan:It appears you have a decisive advantage.
Sisko:To fight a battle under these circumstances would serve no purpose.
I'm prepared to offer terms.
Hear me out!
I know you need more ketracel-white.
My Doctor can sedate your men and keep them alive until we're rescued.
After that, we can put you in medical stasis until we secure a new supply.
Remata'Klan:The Vorta did not give me the option to surrender.
Sisko:Keevan's betrayed you!
He gave us your entire plan of attack last night.
Remata'Klan:It was obvious that approaching your position from this canyon was a deliberate tactical error on his part.
Sisko:You knew?
Remata'Klan:I suspected.
Despite what Keevan may think the Jem'Hadar are often one step ahead of the Vorta.
Sisko:You can still stay one step ahead.
Surrender.
Remata'Klan:I have my orders.
Sisko:Keevan doesn't deserve the unwavering loyalty you're giving him.
Remata'Klan:He does not have to earn my loyalty, Captain.
He has had it from the moment I was conceived.
I am a Jem'Hadar.
He is a Vorta.
It is the order of things.
Sisko:Do you really want to give up your life for the order of things?
Remata'Klan:It is not my life to give up, Captain.
And it never was.
O'Brien:What'd he say?
Sisko:All the wrong things.
Remata'Klan:Our death is glory to the Founders.
O'Brien:Captain?
Keevan:You know, Captain?
If I had had just two more vials of white... you never would've had a chance.
Sisko:Chief!
Get this... take him back to base camp get to work on that com system.
O'Brien:Aye, sir.
Sisko:Lieutenant Neeley!
Neeley:Sir?
Sisko:Form a burial detail.
Neeley:Aye, sir.
