    SISKO: I see. Well, then I want to talk to someone who can negotiate. I want to speak with your First.

    SISKO: Under the Vorta. It must be hard... for a soldier to take orders from a Vorta.

    SISKO: "Obedience Brings Victory." I was on a mission with the Jem'Hadar once -- before the war, of course. They were good. Tough. Professional. It was an honor to serve with them. But their Vorta... he was something different. Manipulative. Treacherous. Trusted by neither side. In the end, he was killed. By the Jem'Hadar First. Suprised

    REMATA'KLAN: Such things have been known to happen. But they are rare and only occur in units that have lost discipline.

    Sisko: Oh, you mean like a unit marooned on the shores of a deserted planet?

    REMATA'KLAN: The Vorta has instructed me to give you his assurance that neither you nor your Doctor will be harmed and you'll both be free to leave at the end of your meeting. What is your response?

    SISKO: A Vorta's word doesn't carry much weight with me. Can I have your assurance that we'll be free to go, Remata'Klan?

    SISKO: You can't break through all that Dominion conditioning in just one conversation.

    SISKO: I don't know. But there were at least 7 Jem'Hadar soldiers up on that ridge this morning. Say at least 2 more at their base camp guarding the prisoners and their Vorta. Without Nog and Mr. Garak on our side, that gives them almost a 2:1 to one advantage.
