    (So Sisko moves rubbish too)

    KIRA: In the refugee camps, we learned to do whatever needed to be done. Didn't matter who you were.

    SISKO: I was just talking with our good neighbor, Quark. He's laying odds that the government's going to fall.

    Kira: Quark knows a good bet when he hears one. This government will be gone in a week, and so will you

    KIRA: Our spiritual leader. She's known as the Kai. Our religion is the only thing that holds my people together. If she would call for unity, they'd listen. Leaders of all the factions have tried to get to her, but she lives in seclusion, rarely sees anyone.

    (Down on the planet, the sacred place is a site of desecration, with chanting in the background. Sisko is met in a colonnade by Kai Opaka. )
    OPAKA: I apologise for the condition in which we greet you.

    OPAKA: Your arrival has been greatly anticipated.

    OPAKA: A Bajoran draws courage from his spiritual life. Our life-force, our pagh, is replenished by the Prophets.
    (She squeezes the lobe.)
    OPAKA: Breathe.

    Opaka: Breathe! Ironic, one who does not wish to be among us is to be the Emissary. Please, come with me. (She touches a control and the pool reveals itself to be a hologram hiding a staircase downwards towards a secret cavern) You are correct that Bajor is in grave jeopardy, but it is the threat to our spiritual life that far outweighs any other.
