SHEPARD: The briefing officer, sir.
SISKO: I want that officer's name.
SHEPARD: She didn't give her name, sir. But she told us that there would be no record of our actions. That our role would have to go unrecognized, at least for now.
SISKO: Maybe if you'd done your job better, it would have. But you fouled it up, didn't you? You cadets did some sloppy work. Some damn sloppy work.
SHEPARD: With all due respect, sir... that's not true, sir. The mission went perfectly. If anything, it was easier than the simulations.
SISKO: Now son, if you think by lying to me you're going to save your own hide, you'd better forget it. Mistakes were made, and I will find out who's responsible.
SHEPARD: I'm not lying to you, sir. I was there. I was at Planetary Operations the whole time. If anything had gone wrong, I would have known about it.
SISKO: Is that so? All right, cadet. Let's go over this step-by-step from the time of your mission deployment until your return to base... at nineteen forty-seven hours PST on the twenty-third.
SHEPARD: Yes, sir. We assembled on the Eastern Quad at 1700 hours on the evening of the 23rd.
SISKO: By "we" I assume you mean Red Squad.
SHEPARD: Yes, sir. After assembly we were beamed aboard the Lakota. Once aboard we received our equipment and the necessary codes, and were transported directly to the Division of Planetary Operations in Lisbon.
SISKO: At what time?
SHEPARD: 0400 hours exactly--local time, of course.
SISKO: Go on, Cadet.
Shepard: Our contact in the DPO give us access to their computer control network. From their we used the access codes we were given, bypassed the security lockouts and then uploaded the disordering protocols into the network.
SISKO: And from there the protocols spread to every power relay on the planet.
SHEPARD: It was a pretty impressive sight, sir, watching those relays wink out one after another.
Sisko: Sorry I missed it.
Shepard: After that, all we had to do was sabotage the restart sequencers and get out. Like I said, sir, it was all by the numbers.
Later, Odo and Sisko enter Sisko's Restaurant in New Orleans.
Odo: ... And you're sure that this Cadet Shepard is telling the truth?
