    KIRA: We just received a priority one communication from Starfleet Command. The Dominion has invaded Betazed.

    SISKO: According to initial reports, the invasion force must have come from somewhere in the Calandra Sector.

    WORF: No. They believed Calandra was too far from the Dominion supply lines to be a threat.

    SISKO: There's plenty of blame to go around. The Tenth Fleet was supposed to be protecting Betazed and its outlying colonies, but it was caught out of position on a training exercise. What's worse, Betazed's own defence systems are obsolete and undermanned. The planet was theirs in less than ten hours.

    KIRA: With Betazed in the hands of the Jem'Hadar, the Dominion is in a position to threaten Vulcan, Andor, Tellar, Alpha Centauri.

    Good to see you too Alienesse, sorry I'm not around that much. My schedule is scattered around and makes it tough to be going when a marathon starts. :)

    SISKO: Mister Garak, it's been three days. Have you made any progress?

    GARAK: Well I suppose that depends on how you look at it.

    SISKO: This is how I look at it is. Betazed has just fallen to the Dominion and we need to get this operation underway.

    GARAK: I share your desire for swift action, Captain. In fact, after our last conversation, I made a few discreet inquiries among my former associates still living on Cardassia. As I anticipated, they shared my loathing for the current government and were willing to take on an assignment aimed at its destruction.

    GARAK: Yes. All killed within one day of speaking with me. I suppose that's a testament to the effectiveness of Dominion security. One should admire such efficiency.

    GARAK: I hope you're not giving up that easily. After all, the stakes are much higher than a few dead operatives. The fate of the entire quadrant hangs in the balance. Or at least that's the case you made to me.

    GARAK: As a matter of fact, I do. But I suspect you won't like it.
