    MAKBAR:Tell me, Mister O'Brien, now that we are at peace, do you have a warm place in your heart for your Cardassian neighbors?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?"
