    Leyton: That's a very interesting theory, but it's not going to do you much good. Lieutenant Arriaga isn't going to get to Earth. I've sent the Lakota to intercept the Defiant.

    SISKO: Do you really think one Starfleet ship will fire on another?

    Leyton: as far as captain Benteen's crew is concerned, the Defiant isn't a starfleet ship,they've been told everyone on the Defiant has been replaced by shapeshifters.

    DAX: Commander, we're being hailed by the Lakota. They're ordering us to drop out of warp, and prepare to be boarded.

    KIRA: They've raised their shields and powered up their phasers. Looks like they won't take no for an answer.

    Sisko: Admiral, do you realise what's going on here? Even if you win, even if you do manage to oust Jaresh-Inyo, you still lose. We all lose.

    Sisko: Do you think other Federation worlds are going to sit back and let their President be replaced by a military dictatorship?

    Leyton: Hardly a dictatorship, Ben.

    Sisko: Overthrowing a legitimately elected President and giving Starfleet direct control over the government? It sounds like a dictatorship to me, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks so.

    Leyton: there will be some dissenters at first. But they will fall in line once they realize that strengthening earth is the first step towards strengthening the Federation.

    Sisko: And what if they don't agree? What then? Are you willing to risk a civil war? If the Lakota fires on the Defiant, you will be opening up a Pandora's box that may never be closed.

    LEYTON: Then contact the Defiant and tell them to stand down.

    LEYTON: I didn't think so. But don't kid yourself, Ben... this Pandora's Box of yours, we're opening it together.

    O'BRIEN: They're bluffing. That's a Federation ship. They're not going to fire on us.
