    MAKBAR: Mrs. O'Brien, there is nothing for you to prepare. Your husband's verdict has already been determined. He is guilty. The trial will reveal how this guilt was proven by the most efficient criminal investigation system in the quadrant. You may, if you desire, attend the trial, which begins in two days time.

    ODO: I am an officer of the court. Chief of Security Odo... I served Gul Dukat on Terok Nor. You may check my credentials. I was designated an officer of the Cardassian court four years ago in order to testify in criminal cases.

    SISKO: Begin a complete security sweep of the station and Chief O'Brien's recent activities... I want to know if there's anything out of the ordinary that might begin to explain this...
