Lt. Commander Worf (Season 4-7)
Major/Colonel/Commander Kira Nerys
Commander/Captain Benjamin Sisko
Dr. Julian Bashir
As the Defiant gets hit and drained of power two 'red-shirt' officers fly back from the consoles hurt. Only when this happens to Kira does Bashir get up to help!
As Weyoun listens to Damar's call for rebellion from the Dominion, there is a Cardassian standing behind him. Shouldn't he have ordered the man's arrest immediately, as being a potential threat, or demanded he pledge his continued loyalty to the Dominion in spite of this?
As in other episodes, the bridge crew of the Defiant doesn't make a lot of sense. Firstly, why is the chief of operations on the bridge instead of the engine room? Why is the doctor on the bridge? Why is DS9's counselor on the Defiant during battle at all, let alone on the bridge?
The laws of momentum seem to be different in the Star Trek universe. As with the Excelsior in Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, the Defiant simply coasts to a stop when she's disabled by the Breen weapon. However, their inertial dampeners must still work for a second or 2 after the engines stop.
Just before the Defiant is destroyed, we see some escape pods leaving from doors on the bottom of the ship. These doors are located on the right and left side of the raised disk on the belly of the ship. However, the small circle in the center of this bulge is supposed to be the door to a shuttle bay, as seen in "The Sound Of Her Voice". The doors to this bay slide open to the left and right, which according to this episode means they would slam into escape pods.
Damar: (after Weyoun praises the Breen for their attack on Earth) By the way, in case Weyoun neglected to mention it, the Dominion once sang Cardassia's praises as well.
(the Breen makes an unintelligible noise)
Damar: It's really quite simple. They expected the war to be over long ago. It's not. For that, they blame us. Now, if the war isn't ended soon, they'll shift the blame to you.
Weyoun: There's something different about you today Damar, I can't quite put my finger on it... it's almost as if you're half dressed...
Damar: What are you talking about?
Weyoun: You don't have a bottle in your hand.
Rusot: I remember the day I heard the news that Cardassia had joined the Dominion. Like everyone else, I rejoiced. We were going to be rulers of the entire Alpha Quadrant. Instead, we're a conquered people, servants of our own land.
Damar: All that will soon end. Now, are you sure we can trust these officers?
Rusot: And the troops under their command. Still, not a very long list, is it?
Damar: It will get longer. With a victory or two, all Cardassia will rise up with us.
Dukat: The answer is in the text of the Kosst Amojan.
Winn: (gasps with surprise) Oh, it is forbidden for anyone to open that book.
Dukat: Yes, anyone except the Kai.
Winn: It is said to contain great evil.
Dukat: (laughs) You have nothing to fear. I'll be right there with you.
Winn: Did I say I was afraid?
Solbor: This book has not been removed from the archives, not for 700 years. The knowledge it contains about the Pah-Wraiths, it is said to be... very dangerous.
Winn: Knowledge is never dangerous in the right hands.
Solbor: There is a saying: he who studies evil is studied by evil.
Winn: I will keep that in mind. Now give me the book.
Dukat: Something's wrong. Tell me, what's bothering you?
Winn: Everything. The prayers, the rituals, these robes. I can't keep pretending I follow the path of the Prophets.
Dukat: You won't have to. The Pah-Wraiths are waiting to embrace you.
Winn: So you keep saying. But when is that going to happen?
Dukat: As soon as we release them from the fire caves.
Winn: (surprised) Release them? But the prophecies...
Dukat: What about them?
Winn: Well, they warn that the release of the Pah-Wraiths will mean the end of Bajor.
Dukat: The old Bajor, perhaps... but from its ashes a new Bajor will arise, and the restoration can begin.
Winn: And who will be left to see it?
Dukat: Those the gods find worthy. It will be the dawn of paradise, and you, Adami, are destined to rule it.
Rusot: Can we really hope to defeat the Dominion? With the Breen on their side they're stronger than ever.
Damar: But we will be fighting to win back our homes and our freedom and that will make us even stronger.
Dukat: There. You see? The Pah-Wraiths have judged you and found you worthy. Their secrets are now your secrets, to do with as you please. Take their gift and use it. Seize the power they're offering you.
Winn: What about Solbor?
Dukat: I'll take care of the body.
Winn: Don't touch me! My life is over. The Pah-Wraiths sent you to destroy me.
Dukat: On the contrary, they sent me to save you.
Winn: Pure lies. Nothing but Cardassian lies. And to think I let you touch me.
Dukat: Where are you going with those?
Solbor: I'm returning these books to the archives.
Dukat: On whose authority?
Solbor: I believe her Eminence has finished.
Dukat: Put them back.
Solbor: How dare you use that tone with me...
(Dukat backhands his fist across Solbor's face - he falls to the floor. Dukat picks up the fallen books, and then Solbor)
Dukat: I'll put them back.
Quark: I don't believe the two of you. Your homeworld has been attacked. The Breen have joined forces with the Dominion. And you sit there, calmly playing games.
Bashir: Haven't you ever heard of grace under pressure?
Dukat: He doesn't understand, Adami. He couldn't possibly understand the love of the Pah-Wraiths!
Solbor: (shocked) The love of the Pah-Wraiths? You're trying to release them. That's why you wanted the text of the Kosst Amojan.
Winn: Solbor, listen to me. All I want is to bring about the restoration.
Solbor: You've betrayed the Prophets. You've betrayed us all!!
Winn: Try to understand. The Pah-Wraiths are the true gods of Bajor.
Solbor: You must be stopped.
Winn: Solbor, I beg you, no!!
Solbor: Get away from her!
Solbor: Eminence, that man is not Anjohl Tennan.
Winn: What are you talking about?
Solbor: Anjohl Tennan died nine years ago in the labor camp at Batal. I warned you not to trust him. I had a sample of his DNA sequenced. He's not even a Bajoran. He's a Cardassian.
Dukat: We were brought together for a cause, a great cause. Our destinies are linked.
Solbor: Don't listen to him. Look at him. Don't you recognize the face of your enemy? It's Gul Dukat.
Weyoun: Poor Captain Sisko. I believe he was quite fond of that ship. Founder, I'm pleased to report the Chin'toka System is ours once more.
Female Shapeshifter: Finally, a step in the right direction. Send my compliments to the Breen.
Weyoun: I'm certain that will please them greatly.
Female Shapeshifter: Really? I have no idea what would please the Breen, nor do I care, as long as they fight and win. I will not tolerate defeat any longer.
Weyoun: Nor will I. All those escape pods. So small. So vulnerable. I'll order their destruction immedately.
Female Shapeshifter: No. Let them return to the Federation. Those pods are filled with frightened, demoralized troops.
Weyoun: Troops that will spread fear throughout the Federation with tales of what happened here today. The Founder is wise.
Damar: And so two years ago, our government signed a treaty with the Dominion. In it the Dominion promised to extend Cardassia's influence throughout the Alpha Quadrant. In exchange, we pledged ourselves to join the war against the Federation and its allies. Cardassians have never been afraid of war, a fact we've proven time and again over these past two years. Seven million of our brave soldiers have given their lives to fulfill our part of the agreement, and what has the Dominion done in return? Nothing. We've gained no new territories. In fact, our influence throughout the quadrant has diminished. And to make matters worse we are no longer masters in our own home. Travel anywhere on Cardassia and what do you find? Jem'Hadar, Vorta, and now Breen. Instead of the invaders we have become the invaded. Our allies have conquered us without firing a single shot. Well, no longer. This morning detachments of the Cardassian First, Third and Ninth Orders attacked the Dominion outpost on Rondac III. This assault marks the first step towards the liberation of our homeland, from the true oppressors of the Alpha Quadrant. I call upon Cardassians everywhere. Resist. Resist today. Resist tomorrow. Resist till the last Dominion soldier has been driven from our soil!
Damar begins the Cardassian resistance movement in this episode.
Cirroc Lofton (Jake Sisko) does not appear.
The Defiant is destroyed by the Breen in this episode. The Breen also attack Earth, but they are repulsed after causing significant damage.
