    BASHIR: Two things. First, Sloan has too much information on the inner workings of their government, too many insights into their political process. Second, Sloan's plan is to kill Koval while making it appear to be an accelerated case of Tuvan Syndrome. Now the only way to do that would be to expose Koval to a short burst of nadion radiation. The simplest plan would be to maneuvre him near a phaser relay and surreptitiously irradiate him. Now since I doubt very much that Sloan is going to have a chance to do that, it stands to reason someone else is going to have to.

    BASHIR: Exactly. Sir, Sloan may have already got things underway. We have to warn them.

    ROSS: And how am I supposed to explain Section 31 to the Romulans? All hell would break loose if they hear that there's a rogue Federation agency is running around plotting assassinations. It could bring the Alliance down! Besides, all we have is speculation at this point.

    ROSS: (Interrupting) The answer is no. After I have Sloan arrested, I'll break radio silence and inform Starfleet Command of the situation. Your orders are to sit tight and do nothing until you hear from me.

    HICKAM: Doctor Frame said it looked like an aneurysm, but they're still running tests.

    BASHIR: I can't trust anyone aboard the Bellerophon and I can't contact DS9. For security reasons there's been a communications blackout. Senator, I have no one else to turn to. I need your help.
