    WORF: But if we do that, your timeline will collapse and everything here will cease to exist.

    Yedrin: Not necessarily. I have a plan...

    Yedrin leads them to the viewscreen and switches it to a new schematic.

    Yedrin: ... and the key is what happened to Kira on the bridge. The energy discharge caused a subspace doubling effect. For an instant, every molecule in her body had a corresponding quantum duplicate. There were literally two Kiras.

    (Temporal amplification simulation 73205 on a wall monitor.)
    YEDRIN: If we make certain modifications to the Defiant's systems, we should be able to amplify this doubling effect and create a quantum duplicate of the entire ship. When you encounter the temporal anomaly, the duplicate will be thrown back into the past, and the original, you, will pass through the barrier unaffected.

    O'BRIEN: So you're saying we go home, and your timeline is preserved.

    YEDRIN: According to the logs I retrieved from the wreckage, the Defiant encountered the anomaly 39 hours after it arrived in orbit.

    Worf: If your plan is to work, we must do the same.

    YEDRIN: There are almost eight thousand people living on this planet. This is the only chance they have.

    Sisko: Dax, I want a full evaluation as soon as possible. If the plan is sound, start making the modifications immediately.

    Bashir: Apparently the planet is crawling with Bashirs.

    BASHIR: He's resting comfortably. He can't hold his shape because of the quantum fluctuations inside the barrier.
    (Bashir puts Odo into a stasis container.)
    BASHIR: Sweet dreams, Odo. But he'll be as right as rain as soon as we leave orbit. You, on the other hand, are going to have to undergo a complete neural pathway induction as soon as we get back to the station.

    BASHIR: That's because your neural tissue hasn't begun to deteriorate yet. But rest assured, you'll be on my operating table eventually.
