T'RUL: I'm not sure.
KIRA: They're getting closer.
O'BRIEN: Commander, the Defiant's power signature is unusually high for a ship this size. The cloaking device may not be masking everything.
SISKO: Cut main power.
(Silent running as a Jem'Hadar hovers over them.)
KIRA: The other one has broken off its search. It's headed this way.
SISKO: Stand by weapons and shields.
(The two ships hover then leave.)
KIRA: They've gone into warp and resumed their original course.
SISKO: The first thing to go right in the Gamma Quadrant in a long time.
Kira: Lets hope its not the last.
Ship's log, stardate 48212.4. We have arrived at the Karemma homeworld and opened talks with one of Quark's business partners in an effort to contact the Founders of the Dominion.
(The Karemma is looking at everything with a merchant's eye, including the Nagus' staff.)
QUARK: The Grand Nagus himself has sent me as an emissary on his behalf. If you aid us in our mission, I'm authorized to increase our purchases of tulaberry wine to the Karemma by three percent.
ORNITHAR: Mmm, looks like a polyduranium alloy blend. Interesting, but the metal has no real value. A three percent increase is negligible.
QUARK: I have considerable leeway to bargain in this circumstance. Name your terms.
ORNITHAR: Nothing, nothing, nothing. The terms are not the issue. I cannot help you locate the Founders because I do not know who they are or if they even exist. (Dax) Nothing. (Kira's earring) Ah, here's something interesting. appears to be diamide laced beritium. I'll give you fifty two diraks for it.
QUARK: I mean, one deal at a time, Ornithar. We were talking about the Founders.
ORNITHAR: There is nothing further to say. If the Founders exist, they clearly do not wish to be contacted. That is good enough for me.
SISKO: Who's your contact in the Dominion regarding administration, trade, defence?
ORNITHAR: Our only contact with the Dominion has been through the Vorta. I have no idea who they report to. All I know is that the Vorta say to do something and you do it.
