    LEYTON: From what we can tell, the changelings infected the system with some kind of self-replicating computer protocal. It jumped from one power relay to the next, disrupting every system it came in contact with.

    ODO: The only way to correct the problem is to shut down the entire grid, purge all the operating systems, and restart the relays.

    SISKO: Which is why it is imperative that you declare a State of Emergency.

    JARESH-INYO: What good will that do when we have no way to defend ourselves?

    LEYTON: Mister President, we can use the Lakota's transporters and communications system to mobilise every Starfleet officer on Earth in less than twelve hours. We've been preparing for something like this for a long time. We have stockpiles of phaser rifles, personal forcefields, photon grenades, enough to equip an entire army. I can start getting men on the streets immediately.

    LEYTON: What I'm asking you to do is let us defend this planet. We don't know what the changelings will do next, but we have to be ready for them. Ben, tell him.

    SISKO: Sir, the thought of filling the streets with armed troops is as disturbing to me as it is to you. But not as disturbing as the thought of a Jem'Hadar army landing on Earth without opposition. The Jem'Hadar are the most brutal and efficient soldiers I've ever encountered. They don't care about conventions of war, or protecting civilians. They won't limit themselves to military targets. They'll be waging the kind of war that Earth hasn't seen since the founding of the Federation.

    ODO: At the same time, my people will continue to undermine Earth's defences in any way they can. This power outage is only the beginning.

    JARESH-INYO: I never sought this job. I was content to simply represent my people on the Federation Council. When they asked me to submit my name for election, I almost said no. Today I wish I had.

    LEYTON: We appreciate your feelings, Mister President, but we don't have time for regrets. You accepted the job and now it's yours.

    ODO: Mister President, there are people all over this planet right now huddled in the dark, terrified about what might happen next. They're waiting for a sign... something to reassure them that everything's going to be all right. But they won't wait long. Fear is a powerful and dangerous thing. And if you don't act, if you don't show them that they're not alone, then fear will surely take over.

    SISKO: Give us the authority we need, Mister President, and we will take care of the rest.
    (There's a long pause, then Jaresh-Inyo taps his PADD - 4567 security codes.)
