Gowron: So, Martok, how does it feel to be the most famous warrior in the Empire?
Martok: I am grateful for the opportunity to serve.
Gowron: And you've served well, but you've broadened the burden of this war for a long time.
Martok: I'd do it gladly, and I'll keep on fighting until the victory is ours!
Gowron: No, my friend. I can't ask you to carry this weight forever. It's time for me to take... a more active role in this war. As of today, I'm assuming direct command of our forces.
Martok: Chancellor, I... I don't understand. Are you... unsatisfied with the way I have performed my duties?
Gowron: Would I have given you the Star of Kahless if I was not satisfied? You should be happy. You're a warrior again. No more meetings, no more reports to file. You'll be out there, savoring the heat of the battle. I envy you. I intend to see an end to this war and soon. The Dominion will rue the day they heard my name!!
