  • Trivia

    • It is in this episode that we first see that not all people have a duplicate in the Mirror Universe. It is made clear that Jennifer and Ben Sisko never had any children in that universe.

    • On Sisko's first trip to the mirror universe, he played along with the mirror Dax while she was coming on to him. It is revealed in this episode that they made love.

    • Nitpick: The Alliance Fleet doesn't seem to be in any rush to take back Terok Nor. They only decided to increase their speed to warp 9 after they found out the rebels were building the Defiant. Even warp 9 isn't their top speed, but perhaps they felt overly confident that they would succeed in crushing the rebellion, so they were in no rush? Where have we seen that before...?!

    • Nitpick: Smiley may have known the systems on DS9 from his knowledge of Terok Nor, but it is highly unlikely he obtained the schematics for the Defiant there. Being both a prototype and still-classified ship, records of it would not have been kept in DS9's files.

  • Quotes

    • Intendant Kira: (about Sisko's last visit) You had me completely fooled. I really thought you were my Benjamin Sisko.
      Sisko: Good, that was the idea.

    • Mirror-Worf: Make it so!

    • Smiley: That Cruiser has us in weapons range. Do we make a run for it?
      Sisko: We run all right, right at it!
      Smiley: Ahh! Pattern suicide.

    • Smiley: (referring to Mirror-Bashir) You remember Captain Bashir?
      Sisko: Captain?
      Smiley: Captain Bashir, Captain O'Brien, Captain Sisko - we may not have enough troops or ships or weapons, but we have plenty of captains!

    • Mirror-Garak: I was merely observing that as one of the many officers under the Intendant's command, it would be an overstatement to imply that I, alone, was responsible for our defeat.
      Mirror-Worf: You're the only officer who managed to escape.
      Mirror-Garak: I suppose I could've surrendered to the rebels. Groveling on the floor, begging for my life... like the Intendant.
      Mirror-Worf: No. You're just trying to shift the blame away from yourself.
      Mirror-Garak: Am I succeeding?

    • Mirror-Jadzia: I heard you were back. (before Sisko can respond, she slaps him across the face) That's for making love to me under false pretenses. I was suspicious of you from the start.
      : You hid it well.
      Mirror-Jadzia: If you ever touch me again... (whips out a long, curved dagger) Do you get my point?
      Sisko: I hope not.

    • Intendant: (to a guard who's wife Kira had killed) Isn't that a coincidence! I was hoping you weren't married.
