Discussion in 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine' started by The Illusive Man, Apr 17, 2014.
Bashir: What if I decide to expose you?
Sloan: Let's just say I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.
A Guard uses a hypospray on Bashir, he collapses and is caught by the guard.
Sometime later, back on Deep Space Nine, in Sisko's office.
Odo: I'll say one thing for this fellow Sloan, he's clever. He timed the Doctor's abduction to coincide with his trip to the medical conference. That way, he wasn't missed.
Julian: Yes, he's clever.
Kira: We went over Julian's quarters but we couldn't find any residual transporter signatures. So either they got him off the station some other way, or they have transporter technology that we can't detect.
BASHIR: Captain, is there any word from Starfleet about Sloan or Section 31?
Sisko: There's no record of a Deputy Director Sloan anywhere in Starfleet. As for Section 31, that's a little more complicated. Starfleet Command doesn't acknowledge its existence, but they don't deny it, either. They simply said that they would look into it and get back to me.
SISKO: They didn't say.
KIRA: That sounds like a cover up to me.
BASHIR: I can't believe the Federation condones this kind of activity.
Odo: Personally, I find it hard to believe they wouldn't. Every great power in the Alpha Quadrant has a unit like Section 31. The Romulans have the Tal-Shiar, the Cardassians had the Obsidian Order.
BASHIR: But what does that say about us? When push comes to shove, are we willing to sacrifice our principles in order to survive?
SISKO: I wish I had an answer for you, Doctor.
KIRA: Maybe we should do some checking, try to track down this Sloan ourselves.
Odo: That won't be easy. If he's right and Section thirty one has existed since the birth of the Federation, they've learned to cover their tracks very well.
SISKO: We don't have to find them. They'll come to us. You said that Sloan tried to recruit you.
BASHIR: I turned him down.
Sisko: He doesn't strike me as a man who takes no for an answer. The next time he asks you to join his little group, you will say yes.
ODO: Well, congratulations, Doctor. Looks like you're going to get to play a spy after all. Only this time, for real.
