  • Trivia

    • Near the end of the episode, Gowron tells Worf that he (Worf) will not get another chance to kill Gowron.  However, Worf does kill Gowron during the Season 7 episode, "Tacking Into the Wind."

    • It is established in this episode that Worf is second in command of the Defiant, behind Captain Sisko.

    • Goof: Time Index 39:12. After Martok stabs the two guards, there is no blood on his knives.

    • Nitpick: Even though they are going undercover, Worf's appearance is unaltered, despite the fact that a Klingon could recognize him (Gowron and Martok specifically).

    • Nitpick: The shot of the damaged Rio Grande returning to the station is recycled from part of the damaged Volga returning two episodes ago.

  • Quotes

    • O'Brien: It's not easy being funny wearing these teeth.

    • Quark: Captain, you're just in time for happy hour.
      Sisko: Do I look happy, Quark?

    • Dukat: (amused by Sisko's Klingon disguise) Captain, I insist we make a holographic record of the four of you. Consider it payment in full for the use of my vessel.
      O'Brien: Maybe after the mission.
      Damar: After the mission you'll all be dead.

    • Sisko: How long have you suspected?
      Martok: Months. I've known Gowron a long time. And it is no secret that we have not always agreed on the way he runs the Empire. He is a politician! Too eager to compromise! Too eager to talk! Last year he stopped the attack on Deep Space Nine instead of going to war with the Federation - and then he changed. Suddenly he was the one calling for war.
      O'Brien: I would have thought that would make you happy.
      Martok: At first it did. But after the war began, he started ignoring the counsel of his Generals, throwing aside all wisdom in his pursuit of victory - our losses continued to mount and still he listens to no one!
      Odo: No one but the Founders.

    • O'Brien: So, let me get this straight: all we have to do is get past an enemy fleet, avoid a tachyon detection grid, beam into the middle of Klingon headquarters and avoid the Brotherhood of the Sword long enough to set these things up and activate them in front of Gowron?
      Worf: If we succeed, there will be many songs sung in our honor.
      O'Brien: Let's hope we're there to hear them.

    • Dukat: I hope First Minister Shakaar appreciates what a lucky man he is.
      Kira: Shakaar's not the father.
      Dukat: Then who is?
      Kira: Chief O'Brien.
