プロローグ

Dax:Cadet.
Nog:Continuing to emit distress signals on all frequencies, sir.
Dax:Chief.
O'Brien:We're still venting plasma.
Any ship within 100 million kilometers will know we're here and that we're not going anywhere.
Nog:We have company, Captain.
Two Dominion ships heading this way bearing 1-9-7 mark 1-3-5.
O'Brien:They'll have us in weapons range in 22 seconds.
Dax:Shields?
Nog:Shields at 30%.
Dax:Phaser banks?
O'Brien:The entire weapons array is off-line.
Dax:Now we find something to hold onto.
---
Nog:Shields are down to 20%.
O'Brien:Now?
Dax:Now. Shields up, engines at full impulse.
Power to main phasers.
O'Brien:Target locked.
Dax:Fire!
Cadet, are there any other Dominion ships out there?
Nog:None that I can see.
Dax:This is the Captain speaking.
All hands, stand down.
Good job, people.
Nog:We're being hailed by the Rotarran.
Commander Worf wants to speak to you.
Dax:On screen.
Worf:Well done, Captain.
You were a very effective decoy.
Dax:How about next time we switch roles?
That way, I can rescue you.
O'Brien:You may have to wait awhile, Captain.
We've just received orders from Starfleet Command: All ships in this sector to pull back to Starbase 375.
Dax:Fall back again.
O'Brien:Engage, retreat.
Engage, retreat.
I tell you, that's becoming our favorite tune.
Bashir:We'd better think of a new tune fast or the only song we'll be singing is "hail the conquering Dominion."
Dax:I wouldn't start learning the lyrics just yet, Doctor.
Worf, we'll see you at Starbase 375.
Worf:I will be waiting.
Dax:Set a course for these coordinates.
Warp seven.
---
Dax:I don't know what all you brass hats in Starfleet Command are thinking but take it from a simple field officer-- we're not going to win this war by running away from the enemy.
Sisko:I know that.
Dax:Benjamin, troop morale is at an all-time low.
Even the Klingons are starting to wonder if we can defeat the Dominion.
We need a victory-- a big victory-- and we need it soon.
Sisko:I couldn't agree with you more.
Dax:Then do something about it.
Sisko:I already have.
In fact, I'm presenting a plan to Starfleet Command at 0800 tomorrow.
Dax:What plan?
Sisko:We're going to retake Deep Space Nine.

チャプター 1

Bashir:Everything appears to be perfectly normal.
I'm sorry, Garak.
Garak:Keep looking, Doctor.
Whatever Starfleet put in there is very well-hidden.
O'Brien:Ridiculous.
Garak:That's easy for you to say.
You don't know them as well as I do.
These are desperate people.
Dax:You won't get any of us to believe that Starfleet Intelligence has implanted some kind of neural transponder in your brain to monitor your thoughts.
Garak:I would have if I were them.
In fact, when I was conducting interrogations for the Obsidian Order, I did a lot worse.
Bashir:I'm sure you did.
Worf:They are not interrogating you-- they are debriefing.
There is a difference.
Garak:Not from where I'm sitting.
Dax:Oh, I'll have a raktajino, Julian.
Bashir:And a raktajino.
O'Brien:Look, Garak-- we are at war with the Dominion.
Cardassia is part of the Dominion.
You are a Cardassian and, at one time, fairly important.
Of course Starfleet Intelligence will press you for specifics.
They need to know everything you know.
Worf:Any small detail could prove important.
Garak:Well, take it from me-- it's a lot more fun asking questions than answering them.
All things considered I'd rather be on the Defiant with all of you.
O'Brien:You haven't been missing much.
Dax:Hopefully, that's about to change.
Bashir:Will Starfleet Command approve Sisko's plan?
Dax:Well, we'll find out soon enough.
He's in there presenting it right now.
O'Brien:Here's to retaking the castle.
Bashir:And planting our flag on its battlements once again.
Dax:You two have spent too much time in the holosuites.
---
Sisko:With a task force comprised of elements of the Second, Fifth, and Ninth Fleets i believe we can retake Deep Space Nine-- the most important piece of real estate in the Alpha Quadrant.
Sitak:Your plan, Captain Sisko, is not without merit.
However, I remain skeptical.
The Dominion will undoubtedly send a large fleet to stop you.
Sisko:It will divert their forces and slow their advance.
Ross:And leave their flank vulnerable.
Sisko:Which will give us a chance to be on the offensive for a change.
Cobum:One thing still concerns me.
Sisko:What's that, Admiral?
Cobum:Earth.
We've left it a very tempting target.
Ross:Earth will still be defended by the Third Fleet.
Cobum:But what if you're wrong and the Dominion doesn't commit its forces to protect Deep Space Nine?
What if, instead, they launch a full-scale assault on Earth?
If we follow the plan you're proposing we'll never be able to get reinforcements there in time.
Sisko:The Dominion won't attack Earth.
Sitak:How can you be sure?
Sisko:Because Earth isn't the key to the Alpha Quadrant-- the wormhole is-- and whoever controls Deep Space Nine controls the wormhole.
---
Quark:Unbelievable.
Amazing.
What nerve.
Morn, you do have a problem but lucky for you, the solution is simple.
You're a grown man, and if you don't want to attend your mother's birthday party you don't have to.
And if she keeps whining about it just remind her there's a war on and you have things to do.
Another ale?
Um... uh... here, uh... it's on the house.
---
Quark:Major, you ready?
Kira:Now?
Quark:Right now.
Kira:All right, but I don't think it'll do any good.
---
Quark:I keep telling myself that Odo never meant to have Rom arrested.
That it was all a mistake.
Bad timing, bad luck.
Kira:I thought that, too, at first.
Quark:I have known Odo a long time.
He's not a collaborator.
Kira:Then why is your brother still in a holding cell?
Quark:We're here to see Odo.
Jem'Hadar:The Founders are not to be disturbed.
Quark:Odo will make an exception for us.
Jem'Hadar:There are no exceptions.
Kira:I'd like to hear that from Odo.
Bajoran:I'm sorry, Major, but you're wasting your time.
His orders were quite clear.
He doesn't want to see anyone-- not until his guest has left.
Kira:And how long has his guest been visiting?
Bajoran:As far as I know, the Female Changeling has not left his quarters for three days.
Jem'Hadar:Step away from the door, Ferengi!
Kira:Hey, hey!
Bajoran:Perhaps it would be best if you left.
My colleague here takes his duties very seriously.
I promise to tell Odo you were here.
Kira:Let's go, Quark.
---
Female Changeling:So... that is how the solids experience intimacy.
Odo:Not all solids.
Humans... Bajorans....
Female Changeling:I really must thank you, Odo.
Odo:For what?
Female Changeling:For giving me new insight into the solids.
Odo:And what have you learned?
Female Changeling:That what they consider intimacy is only a shadow of what we experience in the Great Link.
You don't agree?
Odo:I didn't say that.
Female Changeling:You have done this before?
Odo:Not often.
Female Changeling:But when you have, you enjoyed it?
Odo:Yes.
Female Changeling:And you regret not having experienced it with Major Kira?
Odo:I'd rather not discuss Major Kira.
Female Changeling:I don't see why not.
When we link your feelings for her are made very clear.
Odo:Then why do you insist that we talk about it?
Female Changeling:Because talking is still very important to you.
But one day, it won't be.
One day, the link will be all that you need and that day is coming soon.
Odo:Is it?
Female Changeling:It's amazing that you have survived this long without it.
It's only now after I have been away from the Great Link myself that I understand how painful it must have been for you.
Odo:It hasn't always been easy.
Female Changeling:Odo, you never have to be alone again.
Odo:Well... I'd better be going.
There's a meeting of the station's ruling council.
Dukat and Weyoun are expecting me.
Female Changeling:That meeting was held three days ago.
Odo:Three days?
Three days.
How could I have lost track of that much time?
Female Changeling:Does that bother you?
Odo:Yes, it does.
Female Changeling:Well, don't let it.
You've been living with the solids' concept of time for too long.
Let them worry about their meetings their schedules, their obligations.
None of that has anything to do with you.
You are a changeling.
You are timeless.
As am I.

チャプター 2

Weyoun:You asked to see me, Major?
Kira:That's right. I...
Weyoun:First, tell me something.
What do you think of this?
Kira:It's one of Ziyal's paintings.
Weyoun:I know who the artist is.
Her father gave it to me.
He claims it won some sort of prize on Cardassia.
Kira:Gul Dukat must be very proud.
Weyoun:I suppose.
Is it...?
Any good?
Kira:I think so. Why don't you?
Weyoun:I don't know how to judge it.
You see, my people lack a sense of aesthetics.
Kira:That's too bad.
Weyoun:I sometimes think so as well.
But if aesthetics were truly important the Founders would have included it in our genetic makeup.
Kira:Or they made a mistake.
Weyoun:Gods don't make mistakes.
Though... sometimes... I think it would be nice to be able to carry a tune.
So, what can I do for you, Major?
Kira:It's about Rom.
Weyoun:Oh, yes.
The Ferengi saboteur.
Kira:He has been in a holding cell for over a week.
Weyoun:Has it really been that long?
Kira:And I was hoping that you would consider releasing him.
Weyoun:Impossible. You can't release a man and then execute him.
It makes no sense.
Kira:Execute Rom?
Weyoun:He committed an act of terrorism against the Dominion.
Not only did he try to interfere with our efforts to take down the minefield but as I understand it he's also the diabolical genius who came up with the idea of self-replicating mines in the first place.
I'm afraid there's getting around it, Major.
He must be made an example so that others think twice before they act against us.
Kira:He is married to a Bajoran citizen.
Weyoun:I'm well aware of that and I'm willing to believe-- for now-- his wife is not a co-conspirator.
Otherwise, treaty or no treaty she would share her husband's fate.
I'm sorry, Major.
The Dominion takes a dim view of terrorism.
Your friend must pay the price for his crime.
Kira:We'll see what the Bajoran government has to say about that.
Weyoun:I'm afraid their pleas will fall on deaf ears.
Major.
Would this be more aesthetically pleasing if it were blue?
---
Rom:I'm going to die.
Leeta:Stop saying that.
Rom:I didn't say it-- he did.
Quark:What I said is they're planning to execute you.
It's not the same thing.
Rom:It is to me.
Leeta:Rom, we are not going to let them hurt you.
Kira has gone to the Bajoran Council of Ministers.
She's asking them to lodge an official protest.
Rom:That's sweet, but I doubt it'll do any good.
Quark:And I've talked to Grand Nagus Zek himself and he has offered to buy your freedom from the Dominion.
Rom:I don't think Weyoun cares much for latinum.
I'm a dead man.
Quark:Would you stop upsetting Leeta?
Rom:Sorry.
Quark:Besides... you think your big brother will let anything happen to you?
Rom:What can you do?
Quark:I'm not sure but I will think of something.
No matter what it takes... no matter what I have to do I'm going to get you out of here.
Leeta:You do that and... I'll work your dabo tables for free.
Quark:For how long?
Leeta:An entire year.
Quark:Make it two.
Rom:Brother!
Quark:Shh!
Isn't your life worth two years?
Now, sit tight and trust your older brother.
Rom:But I don't want you to try to save me.
Leeta:What are you talking about?
They must have done something to his mind.
Quark:What mind?
Rom:I'm serious.
Brother, you have more important things to worry about.
Quark:The bar is doing fine, but thanks for caring.
Rom:I'm not talking about the bar.
Leeta:What could be more important than your life?
Rom:Destroying the antigraviton beam.
Quark:Shh!
Rom:To prevent the Dominion from taking down the minefield.
You've got to finish what I've started.
The fate of the entire Alpha Quadrant rests in your hands.
Billions and billions of people are counting on you.
Quark:Boy, are they going to be disappointed.
Rom:Brother... you can do this.
You have to do this.
You will do this.
Quark:What happens if I get caught?
Rom:Then we'll die together-- side by side, heads held high-- knowing we did our best.
Leeta:Oh, Rom.
Quark:But I don't want to die.
Rom:If that's what's written... then that's what's written.
Now get going, brother.
You have a lot of work to do.
So... tell me, Leeta, what else is new?
Have they fixed the sonic shower in our quarters yet?
---
Kira:Ziyal.
Ziyal:Nerys.
I haven't seen you in weeks.
Kira:Do you have a minute?
Ziyal:Sit down.
Kira:I need you to talk to your father for me.
Ziyal:About what?
Kira:Rom.
---
Ziyal:Father?
Dukat:Ah!
Ziyal:I need to talk to you.
Dukat:Is something wrong, my dear?
Ziyal:Nothing that you can't fix.
Dukat:Name it.
Ziyal:I want you to free Rom.
Dukat:You're joking.
Ziyal:Not at all.
Dukat:I can't free Rom, Ziyal.
He's been sentenced to death by the Dominion.
Ziyal:You can pardon him.
Don't you see, father?
This is your chance to show the Bajoran people-- to show Major Kira-- who you really are: A forgiving, compassionate man.
A great man.
Dukat:Tell me something, Ziyal-- were you involved-- in any way-- with the plans to sabotage this station?
Ziyal:No, I wasn't involved.
Dukat:You're sure about that?
I can't help you unless you tell me the truth.
Ziyal:I am telling you the truth.
The question is have you been telling me the truth?
Dukat:About what?
Ziyal:That the Bajorans are wrong about you.
That you regret the horrible things you had to do during the occupation.
Dukat:I do regret them, Ziyal... deeply.
Ziyal:Then this is your chance to prove it to everyone including me.
Show us that you're capable of mercy.
Dukat:Rom...
Is an enemy of the state and enemies of the state do not deserve mercy.
Ziyal:Spoken like a true Cardassian.
Dukat:I am a Cardassian.
And so are you.
Ziyal:No, I'm not!
I could never be like you.
Dukat:Ziyal....
---
Kira:You can't trust them.
Quark:I trust latinum, and so do they.
Five bars will buy me five Nausicaans and a fast ship and very few questions.
Breaking Rom out of the holding cell will be child's play compared to the things they're used to doing.
Kira:Forget about it, Quark.
Freeing your brother's going to take very careful and precise planning.
It's not the Nausicaan way-- they're thugs.
They'll come strutting onto the station look at a Jem'Hadar the wrong way before you know it, there's blood on the Promenade.
Quark:You think I can get my money back?
---
Damar:Major... a freighter loaded with Tammeron grain is due within the hour.
See to it that Cargo Bay Five is ready to receive it.
Kira:I'll take care of it...
Damar:Yes, you will.
Now.
That attitude of yours, Major... It won't be tolerated forever.
Kira:You don't like my attitude, Damar?
You're welcome to try to change it.
Damar:I don't know what Dukat sees in that woman.
Quark:Then you need to have your eyes examined.
One kanar.
Want me to leave the bottle?
Damar:Maybe I should have you taste it first.
Make sure it isn't poisoned.
Quark:Poisoning the customers is bad for business.
Damar:True.
But some people may place a brother's revenge above business.
Quark:Not this Ferengi.
Damar:You're a credit to your race, Quark.
Unlike your brother you've chosen to back the winning side.
Quark:All right, are you going to tell me or do you want me to guess?
Damar:Tell you what?
Quark:Oh, don't be coy with me.
Either someone you don't like has died or your promotion came through.
Damar:It's better than that.
It's about the minefield.
Quark:What about it?
Damar:It's coming down.
Quark:Oh, I've heard that before.
Damar:Remember those field tests I was telling you about?
They were successful.
We've begun to deactivate the mines.
Quark:Well... you've got your work cut out for you.
What's it going to take-- a couple of months? A year?
Damar:One week.
Quark:A week?
Damar:That's right.
One week... and the Alpha Quadrant is ours.

チャプター 3

Sisko:This mission cannot succeed without the involvement of the Klingon Defense Forces.
Worf:We agree with you.
Chancellor Gowron does not.
Sisko:Then you will change his mind.
Martok:The Chancellor is reluctant to commit such a large fleet to a single engagement.
He believes it would leave the empire vulnerable.
Sisko:Starfleet Command had the same concerns about Earth.
After careful consideration, they decided it was worth the risk.
Worf:General, perhaps you should return to Kronos and make your plea in person.
The Chancellor has great respect for you.
If you cannot persuade him, no one can.
Martok:I will go to see Gowron and you will come with me.
Worf:No.
The Chancellor no longer considers me a friend.
Martok:I know.
But what could be better?
An ally and an enemy both telling him the same thing.
He'll have no other choice but to agree.
Sisko:Gentlemen, I need those ships.
Worf:And you shall have them.
---
Kira:A week?
Are you sure about that?
Quark:That's what he said.
Believe me, this was no idle boast.
Kira:We have to stop them.
Quark:And end up in a holding cell with my brother?
No, thanks.
If we could only get to Odo... make him see what's going on.
Maybe he could help us.
Kira:Forget about Odo.
First, we can't get to him.
Second, even if we did, he wouldn't help us.
Quark:Then what we have to do is warn Starfleet.
Kira:And how do you suggest we get a message to them?
Quark:You're asking me?
You're the terrorist.
I'm just a bartender.
Jake:There you are.
From the look on your faces I can see you haven't had much luck getting Rom out of jail.
Quark:And the news just keeps getting worse.
Jake:It's not all bad.
Kira:Trust us, Jake.
It is.
Jake:Not for me.
I'm getting a message out to my dad.
Kira:How?
Jake:I'm a reporter-- I have my ways.
Kira:Come on, Jake, this is no time for games.
Kira:Morn?
Jake:He's going home for his mother's birthday.
He has an encrypted message for my dad in one of her presents.
---
Ross:Are you sure this is reliable?
Sisko:I've known the courier for five years.
I trust him.
Ross:Then we have a problem.
According to this the minefield's coming down in three days.
The Ninth Fleet won't be here for at least four.
Sisko:Then I suggest we go without them.
Ross:What about the Klingons?
Sisko:Looks like we go without them, too.
We've run out of time, Admiral.
Ross:If those Dominion reinforcements come through the wormhole we'll have lost everything.
Sisko:Then we take the ships we have fight our way to Deep Space Nine and destroy the antigraviton emitter.
It's our only hope.
Ross:Do it.

チャプター 4

Dukat:There.
Weyoun:Where?
Dukat:Over there.
That flash of light was the antigraviton beam hitting a mine.
And disabling its replication unit.
Weyoun:Exactly.
Dukat:Didn't you see it?
Weyoun:I'm afraid not.
Dukat:For months you've been demanding that I take down those mines and now that it's finally happening you can't even see it.
Weyoun:Weak eyes.
Dukat:Excuse me?
Weyoun:My people have poor eyesight.
It's something we've learned to live with.
Jem'Hadar on the other hand-- excellent vision.
I suppose they need it more than we do.
Dukat:Ah! There's another one.
Weyoun:I'll have to take your word for it.
Dukat:Once we disable the replication units in all the mines we can detonate the entire minefield.
And I guarantee you-- weak eyes or not-- that explosion you will see.
Weyoun:When will you be ready to proceed?
Dukat:Approximately 78 hours.
Three more days and we can start to bring the Jem'Hadar reinforcements through the wormhole.
Weyoun:Excellent! I knew you could do it, Dukat.
Dukat:Did you?
Weyoun:I never doubted you for a moment.
Damar:Sir, I have new information on enemy fleet movements.
Dukat:Go ahead.
Damar:The Second Fleet has fallen back past the Kotanka System while the Fifth Fleet has pulled out of the fighting along the Vulcan border.
Both fleets have converged here-- Starbase 375.
Dukat:Isn't that where Captain Sisko is stationed?
Damar:He's been made an adjutant to Admiral Ross.
Weyoun:Good for him.
Now, why have those fleets gathered there?
Damar:I'm not sure.
Weyoun:You're not sure?
Two large enemy fleets break off from the front lines and rendezvous at a starbase and you have no idea why?
Dukat:Well, we'll just have to find out, won't we?
Weyoun:See that you do.
Damar:He should speak to you with greater respect.
Dukat:Someday, I'll let you teach him that lesson but right now, there's something more pressing I need you to do.
It's of a personal nature, a matter of some... delicacy.
It's about my daughter.
Damar:Ziyal?
Dukat:We've had a misunderstanding.
I want you to go and convince her to... speak with me.
Damar:Sir, I really feel I would be more valuable tracking the enemy fleet.
Dukat:I've given you an order, Damar.
We're on the verge of a great victory and when it comes, I want my daughter at my side.
Is that understood?
---
Ziyal:I really believed my father had changed.
That he wanted to be a man of peace.
Kira:I think he believes that, too-- when it suits his purpose.
Ziyal:Everything he's ever said to me has been a lie.
Kira:Not everything.
He really does care about you.
Ziyal:I don't care.
I am not going back to him.
You don't believe me, do you?
Kira:Right now you're angry and hurt but that's going to pass and then you'll have to decide what to do.
Damar:Ziyal!
I need to speak to you.
Ziyal:You and I have nothing to talk about.
Damar:Maybe not, but you and your father do.
He wants to see you.
Ziyal:Well, I don't want to see him.
Kira:You heard her.
Damar:Stay out of this, Major.
Ziyal, listen.
Your father is a great man-- a man of destiny-- but he also carries great burdens.
He knows our alliance with the Dominion is a dangerous one.
If we show any sign of weakness our allies will turn on us.
That is why we must all help him remain strong.
So I ask you to be a true daughter of Cardassia and stand beside him.
Ziyal:It should be obvious, even to you, Damar, that I am not "a true daughter of Cardassia"!
Damar:What is obvious to me is that your father should have left you to rot in that Breen prison camp.
But he didn't.
He took pity on you and it's your duty to repay him.
Come with me.
Kira:Let her go.
Damar:And if I don't?
What happens, then?
Kira:I was hoping you'd ask.
Damar:Aah!
Ziyal:Did you kill him?
Kira:No, but I thought about it.
Ziyal:What are you going to do when he wakes up?
Kira:It's up to him.
---
Ross:I just came to wish you luck.
Sisko:Oh, thank you.
My father says you can never have too much good luck.
Ross:Father sounds like a wise man.
Sisko:And he makes a fierce jambalaya.
Ross:What's this?
Sisko:Ancient Bajoran texts.
Ross:Ah. The Emissary looks for guidance on the eve of battle.
Sisko:Guidance, insights, loopholes-- I'll take anything I can get.
Ross:And what do the Prophets tell you?
Sisko:That I have a long way to go before I can make any sense of their prophecies.
Ross:Maybe when this war is over, you can look at them closer.
Sisko:That'll be a change.
Spend a week or two down on Bajor visit the Dakeen Monastery.
Ross:I've never been on Bajor.
I hear it's quite nice.
Sisko:Nice?
That hardly describes it at all.
There are parts of the eastern province that are like eden itself-- lush green valleys covered in wildflowers that seem to spring up overnight; hundreds of small, crystal-clear ponds interconnected by waterfall...
Ross:All right, all right.
I'm convinced.
I'm already planning my next R and R down there.
You know, it sounds like when your assignment on Deep Space Nine is over and Bajor is welcomed into the Federation you're going to have a tough time saying goodbye.
Sisko:I don't plan to say goodbye.
I plan to build a house on Bajor.
Ross:And what if Starfleet assigns you to a different sector?
Sisko:I will go wherever they send me but when I go home... it will be to Bajor.
---
Nog:Chief! I was just coming to see you.
Can you believe it?
They made me an ensign.
O'Brien:I hadn't realized things were going so bad.
Nog:Scary, isn't it?
If my classmates at the Academy could see me now.
O'Brien:They'd be surprised?
Nog:Amazed is more like it.
O'Brien:What do they know?
Nog:Anyway, I just want to say thanks for all your help.
O'Brien:My help?
Nog:I've learned a lot from you and not just about engineering.
You've shown me what it takes to be a good soldier.
O'Brien:Don't let that uniform go to your head.
You've a lot to learn yet, and you will.
Congratulations, Ensign.
Wear it with pride.
Nog:I intend to, Chief.
---
Nog:Captain on the Bridge.
Dax:I've kept it warm for you, Ben.
Sisko:Ensign, alert all ships.
We're moving out.
Nog:Aye, sir.

チャプター 5

Dukat:Our initial intelligence reports have been verified.
The Federation fleet is on the move.
Weyoun:Do we know their destination?
Dukat:Yes. It appears they're headed here.
Weyoun:Here?
Oh, ho, ho, ho.
He knows we're taking down the minefield.
Someone must've gotten a message out.
Dukat:So it would seem.
Weyoun:No matter.
We'll crush them.
Dukat:Yes. Yes, we will but in order to do that, I'm going to have to pull a significant number of our ships off the front lines.
Weyoun:Do it.
Dukat:Come in.
Weyoun:Once the minefield is down we'll have more than enough ships to take their place.
Dukat:I understand.
One moment, please.
Damar:I want your permission to arrest Major Kira.
Dukat:Kira? What about Ziyal?
Did you talk to her?
Damar:She doesn't want to see you.
When I insisted, the Major... objected.
Dukat:What did you do to Ziyal?
Damar:I did nothing to her.
Dukat:Then why did the Major attack you?
You must have done something... threatened my daughter in some way.
Damar, I told you to be tactful.
Weyoun:Excuse me.
Don't you think resolving family squabbles can wait until after we've won this war?
Weak eyes, good ears.
Dukat:Yes, of course.
You're quite right.
Weyoun:Then you're clear on what must be done?
Dukat:I'm going to call back enough ships to destroy the Federation fleet and hold this station.
Damar:The Federation is moving against us?
Dukat:That's right.
Now, I want to know exactly what went on between you and Ziyal.

Odo:It's odd.
I've stood here countless times and yet, somehow it all looks different.
Female Changeling:It's the solids.
They look small, don't they?
Insignificant.
Odo:It's not their fault.
Female Changeling:I'm not placing blame.
Odo:They're trapped.
Female Changeling:Confined to a single shape.
Odo:A single perspective.
Female Changeling:It's so limiting.
Odo:I feel sorry for them.
Female Changeling:They need our guidance, Odo, not our pity.
Odo:They cherish their freedom.
Female Changeling:We'll have to break them of that.
Odo:Break them?
Female Changeling:In a manner of speaking.
Oh, this language of the solids-- it's so imprecise.
Odo:What exactly do you plan to do?
Female Changeling:The solids are no longer your concern, Odo.
What must be done will be done.
It's as simple as that.
Weyoun:Forgive me for intruding but I have important news about the war.
Female Changeling:Why don't you return to your quarters, Odo?
I'll join you there shortly.
Don't worry.
Everything will be fine.
I promise.
Weyoun:I must say... you're doing a wonderful job with Odo.
Female Changeling:Meaning what?
Weyoun:Meaning that he's always posed a potential threat to our plans but you seem to have... neutralized him quite nicely.
Female Changeling:Neutralize Odo?
Is that why you think I'm here?
Odo is a changeling.
Bringing him home returning him to the Great Link means more to us than the Alpha Quadrant itself.
Is that clear?
Weyoun:I meant no disrespect.
Female Changeling:Of course you didn't.
You are what you are-- a loyal subject of the Dominion.
Come. Walk with me.
You said you had important news.

Odo:Major!
Odo:Kira! Kira, wait, please.
Kira:I have nothing to say to you.
Odo:I understand that you're angry.
Kira:Oh, you bet I am angry.
Do you have any idea what's going on?
Odo:Yes... somewhat.
I've been occupied.
Kira:Ah... Dukat is bringing down the minefield, the Federation is about to be overrun by Dominion reinforcements, and Weyoun has ordered Rom's execution and you have been occupied.
Odo:This is so difficult to explain.
Kira:Don't bother talking to me about the link.
I'm a solid, remember?
I won't understand.
Odo:Nerys... I'm sorry.
Kira:Sorry?
That's what you wanted to tell me?
You're sorry?
Odo:Yes.
Kira:Well, let me tell you something, Odo.
We are way, way past "sorry."

O'Brien:The Cortez is still having trouble stabilizing the guidance thrusters on their port nacelle.
Sisko:Tell them to drop back and make repairs.
Bring up the Sarek to take its place.
O'Brien:Will do.
Garak:That's the 11th ship to fall out of formation.
Dax:Nice of you to keep track.
Bashir:He can't help being negative.
It's in his nature.
Garak:On the contrary.
I always hope for the best.
Experience, unfortunately has taught me to expect the worst.
O'Brien:I'm picking something up.
It's a large Dominion fleet, bearing 0-0-4, mark 0-0-9.
Sisko:How large?
O'Brien:1,254 ships.
Bashir:They outnumber us two to one.
Garak:Now who's being negative?
Sisko:Ensign, onscreen.
Maximum magnification.
Nog:Aye, sir.
Sisko:To all ships-- this is Captain Sisko.
Assume attack formation delta-two.
There's an old saying-- "Fortune favors the bold."
Well... I guess we're about to find out.
