    JOSEPH: Take a look at what?

    They look out of the window and see Starfleet officers taking up positions on the street carrying phaser rifles as another group beams in.

    To be continued....

    SISKO: I don't like this. The more I read Starfleet's reports on the sabotage of the power relays, the more unanswered questions I have: how were the Changelings able to infiltrate the Division of Planetary Operations? Where did they get the codes for the Division's computer control network? And how did they manage to disable every power relay on Earth at the same time?

    SISKO: They're an elite team of Starfleet cadets. According to Nog, every student at the Academy wants to be a part of it.

    ODO: Well, according to this transporter log, a group called Red Squad was beamed back to Starfleet Academy 26 minutes after the State of Emergency was declared.

    SISKO: That's strange. During the blackout, Starfleet mobilized hundreds of units. Why would they have demobilized Red Squad?

    ODO: That's why I brought it up. But if they're cadets I suppose Starfleet wanted to get them out of harms way.

    (Sisko calls up a file on his wall monitor: From Commander, Starfleet to OIC Training Squadron 47, stardate 49334.53. Effective immediately. All members of CTS-47 designation Red Squad are hereby assigned to field duty patrolling Sol sector, Terra 1. Mission specific orders will be transmitted once all squadron personnel are on station.)

    SISKO: Three hours later Starfleet Command issued an order assigning the entire Corps of Cadets to field duty.

    ODO: Which means they weren't bringing Red Squad home to protect them.

    SISKO: So the question is, why would they demobilise Red Squad only to mobilise them again 3 hours later?

    JOSEPH: Jake, it's been four days since the power outage. Have you seen any Dominion invasion fleet?
