KIRA: One minute left. And still no transport ship activity or any other sign that they're beginning to evacuate.
Sisko: Commander Worf, prepare to fire torpedoes on my mark.
Worf: Detach safeties on torpedoes one and two.
KIRA: Incoming message. It's Eddington.
EDDINGTON: What are you really up to, Javert? Do you expect me to believe that a decorated Starfleet officer, the pride of the service, is going to poison an entire planet?
Sisko: That's exactly what I'm going to do.
Eddington: You're bluffing.
SISKO: Am I? Commander, launch torpedoes. (Worf hesitates) Commander, I said launch torpedoes!
WORF: Aye, sir.
(Two lights impact the atmosphere, and it starts turning yellow.)
KIRA: The trilithium resin is dissipating throughout the biosphere. The Maquis are scrambling their transport ships. They're starting to evacuate.
EDDINGTON: Do you realise what you've done?
Sisko: I've only just begun. I'm going to eliminate every Maquis colony in the DMZ.
EDDINGTON: You're talking about turning hundreds of thousands of people into homeless refugees!
Sisko: That's right. When you attacked the Malinche you proved one thing: that the Maquis had become an intolerable threat to the security of the Federation and I am going to eliminate that threat.
EDDINGTON: But think about those people you saw in the caves, huddled and starving. They didn't attack the Malinche.
SISKO: You should have thought about that before you attacked a Federation starship. (Sisko turns his back on the Eddington hologram) Helm, lay in a course for Tracken Two, warp six. Commander, prepare two more torpedoes.
Nog: Engine Room, Bridge. Warp 6.
DAX: Set course zero five zero mark one seven nine.
(We missed a line a few posts up - EDDINGTON: But think about those people you saw in the caves, huddled and starving. They didn't attack the Malinche!)
WORF: Unlock safeties on torpedoes 3 and 4.
EDDINGTON: Can't you see what's happening to you? You're going against everything you claim to believe in, and for what? To satisfy a personal vendetta?
