Discussion in 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine' started by The Illusive Man, Aug 20, 2012.
DUKAT [on monitor]: Your recognition is irrelevant.
Sisko: Well, if that's what you think, why are we having this conversation?
DUKAT (on monitor): Because the fact is, Captain, I feel a certain obligation toward you. After all, I freely admit you saved my life on more than one occasion.
Sisko: Don't remind me.
DUKAT [on monitor]: Oh, no, you should be glad you did. Because now I'm going to return the favour and give you a chance to save your precious Federation. All you have to do is convince them to follow Cardassia's example.
SISKO: You expect us to join the Dominion?
DUKAT [on monitor]: I expect you to behave rationally. Joining the Dominion will save billions of lives and keep the Federation from fading into the mists of history.
Sisko: By allowing it to exist under Dominion rule? No, thank you.
SISKO: By allowing it to exist under Dominion rule? No thank you.
Dukat (on monitor): I'm afraid you'll like the alternative even less.
SISKO: Dukat, if you have something to say to me, say it.
Dukat (on monitor): I'll make it simple then. A few days ago, I swore all Cardassia had lost would be regained. That space station you're so fond of... was built by Cardassia.
SISKO: Funny, I thought it was built by Bajoran slave labour.
Dukat (on monitor): Either surrender the station or I'll take it by force. The choice is yours.
SISKO: If you want to retake this station, Dukat, you are welcome to try.
Martok: Seven battles and seven victories! What hero of legend have done as well?!
Worf: Heroes of legends don't ache so much.
MARTOK: Your Federation friends have taught you modesty, but this is no time for modesty. When we return to the Klingon Empire, I will seek out Keedera himself and tell him of your glorious tale. He will write a song worthy of you.
Bashir: Well, be sure to send me a copy.
