SISKO: I'm fine. Admiral, what's going on?
LEYTON: From what we can tell, Earth's entire power relay system's been knocked off-line. Even Starfleet's emergency backups have been affected.
SISKO: How could that happen?
LEYTON: We don't know for certain. But, if you ask me, there's only one possible explanation...
SISKO: The changelings.
ODO: Take down the power relays, and you neutralise sensors, transporters, surface-based defence installations.
SISKO: In other words, Earth's defenseless.
JARESH-INYO: I am not interested in excuses. It is imperative that we get the power relay system functioning again.
Sisko and company beam in.
LEYTON: Mister President.
JARESH-INYO: How did you people get here?
SISKO: We contacted the Lakota and used their transporters. Sir, as acting head of Earth Security, I must advise you to declare a State of Emergency.
JARESH-INYO: You're serious? With the exception of the Borg incident, there hasn't been a State of Emergency declared on Earth in a century.
SISKO: I'm aware of that. But I have reason to believe a Dominion warfleet may be in the Alpha Quadrant headed for Earth.
JARESH-INYO: Do you have evidence to back this up?
SISKO: Just before we left Deep Space Nine, the wormhole was exhibiting some unusual behavior... opening and closing for no apparent reason.
Odo: We didn't detect any ships coming through at the time. But the Dominion may have been using some kind of cloaking technology.
JARESH-INYO: I wasn't aware the Dominion had cloaking technology.
ODO: The combined Cardassian and Romulan fleet that the Dominion destroyed in the Gamma Quadrant was equipped with cloaking devices. Who knows what my people might have taken from the wreckage?
Jaresh-Inyo: How long until the power relays are fixed?
