    Makbar: Tell me, Mister O'Brien, now that we are at peace, do you have a warm place in your heart for your Cardassian neighbours? Or are you deeply prejudiced against Cardassians? Do you not, in fact, hate Cardassians? Have you not on several occasions publicly stated your opposition to the treaty because, and I quote, 'the bloody Cardies can't be trusted'?

    MAKBAR: There are no grounds in Cardassian law which permit you to decline. Answer the question. Is it an accurate quote or not?

    Kovat: Madame Archon, at this time, it seems the offender's guilt has been clearly established and I see no other alternative but to concede to the verdict.

    O'Brien: I am not guilty. I have committed no crime, and I do not concede to this court or the Cardassian Empire.

    KOVAT: I object to this! Madam Archon, how can you continue to tolerate these intrusions?

    MAKBAR: Once again the Cardassian system of jurisprudence has worked to protect it's people. A guilty man has been brought to justice. But, never let it be said that there is no room in this system for compassion. I sense in Mister O'Brien, a man with strong family ties, the potential for rehabilitation. And I'm sure he has gained a new appreciation of Cardassian law through this difficult process. Therefore, I am pleased, in the spirit of furthering Cardassian-Federation relations, to hereby set aside the verdict and to release Mister O'Brien into the custody of his Commander, Benjamin Sisko.

    SISKO: When Doctor Bashir examined him, he discovered that Boone was missing his first molar. His DNA analysis confirmed that he was Cardassian.
