Another tense segment. When something goes right something else seems to go wrong. Again, the scenes with Macet and Berat in them were compelling and engrossing. The story moves forward even as we learn more about Cardassian servitude and loyalty to their state. Berat allows the Dominion to come ever closer knowing it might very well spell disaster for the plan but to act otherwise would betray the plan. You made a Cardassian virtue a plot device to rack up the tension. Great work.
