    WORF: My readings indicate the source of that coded signal is deep in Dominion space. I have strict orders to avoid unnecessary risk. We must turn back.

    GARAK: Well I certainly don't want to take an unnecessary risk, but our sensors show no sign of Jem'Hadar warships in this area.

    WORF: True. But the likelihood of contact will increase from this point on, and my orders were very clear.

    GARAK: But we've come all this way. To turn around without an answer it seems so un-Klingon.

    GARAK: Why don't we go through this nebula? We can avoid detection and get light years closer to the source of the transmission.

    WORF: Our shields would be useless in that nebula.

    GARAK: But so would Jem'Hadar sensors. The answer is out there, Commander. We just have to have the courage to find it. And remember, it's not just Tain we're looking for. The Maryland, the Proxima, the Sarajevo. Starfleet ships that have been lost in the Gamma Quadrant for years, and their crews, brave soldiers, warriors of the Federation unaccounted for. We owe it to them to do everything in our power to find them and bring them home. It's the honourable thing to do.

    (apparently someone repeated a line, setting the thread back a few lines. I'll restore it)

    GARAK: There's a pocket of toh-maire gas ahead.
    WORF: Bringing her to zero three one mark three five five.


    GARAK: Steady as she. Now what could that be?

    WORF: Whatever they are, they are coming straight at us.

    (Oops, it's a Jem'Hadar fleet.)

    GARAK: Maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all.
    (Evasive manoeuvres during the break.)
    GARAK: You still haven't lost them.

    GARAK: There are four more Jem'Hadar ships in close pursuit, and at least two ahead of us on an intercept course.
