  • Quotes

    • Sisko: (angry) I've got people out there killing people, Major. You suggest I turn a blind eye to that?
      Kira: Don't they have a right to defend themselves?
      Sisko: They've crossed the line!
      Kira: If Starfleet is unwilling to defend them in the Demilitarized Zone...
      Sisko: They chose to live with the Cardassians!
      Kira: Well, I didn't! But I lived with them for twenty-six years before the liberation came. Every Bajoran lived with them in constant fear. I know what those colonists are going through. Most of all, I know the Cardassians can't be trusted to keep their side of the bargain in this treaty.
      Sisko: So, you'd suggest the Federation shouldn't keep our side of the bargain either, perhaps by arming these colonists?
      Kira: I can't answer that, Commander. But I can tell you one thing for certain - the Cardassians are the enemy, not your own colonists. And if Starfleet doesn't understand that, then the Federation is more naive than I already think it is.
