GARAK: Believe me, I wouldn't be relaying this request if I thought he'd take anything else.
SISKO: Biomimetic gel is strictly controlled by the Federation and not for sale at any price. Find someone else who's willing sell us a rod.
GARAK: I wasn't exaggerating when I told you about the near impossibility of obtaining a genuine Cardassian data rod. It's something of a minor miracle that I was able to locate this one source, I'm virtually certain I won't find another. I'm afraid we either give him what he wants or forget the whole enterprise.
SISKO: Then let's forget about it. Ops. Hold. Two hundred liters is out of the question. There's not that much gel in the entire sector.
GARAK: I believe the quantity is open to negotiation.
BASHIR: Captain, biomimetic gel is an extremely dangerous compound, as you know. I can't release it without at least some idea of where it's going. In the wrong hands, it could be used to make biogenic weapons, or for illegal replication experiments, or to develop organic explosives.
SISKO: Perhaps I didn't make myself clear, Doctor. This is not a request, it's an order. You will package eighty five liters of biomimetic gel for interstellar transport and deliver them to cargo bay three. Is that understood?
BASHIR: Yes. I'd like this order in writing, please, sir.
SISKO: I thought you might.
BASHIR: You should know that I shall note this in my log and file an official protest with Starfleet Medical.
SISKO: That is your right. But I want the gel by the end of the day. Dismissed. .
(Set up as a Cardassian conference room. Garak and Sisko watch the play as Tolar works controls.)
WEYOUN: The Founders have decided to implement stage two ahead of schedule.
DAMAR: The invasion of Romulus? It's too soon. We're engaged in heavy fighting all along the border with the Federation. The Klingons are preparing to go on the offensive and...
(ooh, I love Damar)
WEYOUN: Fortunately, the Founders have better vision than you do. They can see the opportunities before us even when you cannot. Consider - the Romulans don't expect an attack from Cardassia. The bulk of the Romulan fleet is still deployed along the Neutral Zone with the Federation. The Founders estimate that we could be on Romulus itself in less than three weeks.
DAMAR: Three weeks? I heard the same kind of estimates before we attacked the Federation.
DAMAR: Three weeks? I heard the same kind of estimates before we attacked the Federation
WEYOUN: Those plans were ruined by the incompetency of your predecessor.
DAMAR: Gul Dukat is a great man!
WEYOUN: Gul Dukat is a preening egotist and fool. We offered him unchallenged control of the Alpha Quadrant and all he could think about was his daughter. Now, shall we get back to the business at hand?
