SISKO - Good to see you.
You have chosen the TAKE
In your answer, as part of your reasoning, you state:
"Since the ship is Under attack",...
In point-of-fact, if you can possibly review the episode, you will learn that the Electromagnetic Waves which are draining the power from your ship, are a NATURALLY OCCURRING BY-PRODUCT of the operation of the machine, Vaal.
This fact was reported to you by your Chief-Engineer at the moment your ship first entered orbit around the alien planet.
Therefore it is UNTRUE that your ship is 'UNDER ATTACK" by anything or anyone; the TRUTH is you placed and kept the ship directly in a hazard well known to you.
Does this fact change your answer?
