* Nog's epic ChainOfDeals to acquire a critical part that Chief O'Brien needs in "Faith, Treachery, and the Great River." What else can you call a plan that involves the theft of Sisko's desk and sixteen cases of General Martok's bloodwine, and ends with Nog ''completely getting away with it?'' Especailly since the desk came back all nice and clean, and Martok's bloodwine was replaced with superior vintage. Nog showed that the Ferengi knack for wheeling and dealing can even benefit the Federation.

** Before the battle, when the crew realizes how badly the odds are stacked against them, it would make sense for them to back down and live to fight another day. But then, that's not an option due to the short deadline before the Dominion can bring reinforcements through the Wormhole. [[ThoseTwoGuys O'Brien and Bashir]] proceed to cheerfully recite a verse from Alfred Lord Tennyson's ''Charge of the Light Brigade'' before being shushed. Despite the poem being about a SelfDestructiveCharge that got everyone killed, it comes off as a BadassBoast.

** In the middle of the battle, the camera cuts to Martok and Gowron. The dialogue is in Klingon, but if you know what they say, it makes the crew of PunyEarthlings that much more {{Badass}}.

*** The anonymous Bajoran security forces on the station get their own moments too, doing plenty to help repel the Klingon boarders.

*** And the best part, when D'Ghor actually tries to kill Quark despite the dishonorable circumstances, it shows to Chancellor Gowron and the whole Klingon High Council that he ''is'' without honor as Quark claims and they discommendate him. Quark got a Klingon warrior stripped of his honor and power and banished from Klingon society. Checkmate!

** Earlier in the same episode, Rusot accuses Kira of teaming with them for the sole purpose of having an excuse to kill more Cardassians... and then makes the mistake of putting his hands on Colonel Kira. '''[[BullyingADragon Wrong]] [[BerserkButton move.]]'' Kira's resulting CurbStompBattle is very satisfying.

* After Damar finds out in "Tacking Into the Wind" that the Dominion have killed his wife and children, he wonders what kind of people could give orders like that. Kira responds with a perfect "Yeah, Damar. What kind of people give those orders?"

** This comes to fruition in a small CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Damar when he completes his [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turn]] by saving Kira and Odo from a treacherous officer who wanted to bring back the old Imperial Cardassia.

* Kira has another moment like this two seasons earlier, while talking to Dukat. (Only this time, without the regret). Dukat is angry with Kira because his daughter Ziyal has befriended Garak, his sworn enemy.

** Also a CallBack to the first episode, where the Cardassians were made to back off with false sensor readings. It's not a bluff anymore, it's ''real''.

** We saw what she could do as early as the pilot. A Bajoran, a race that the Cardassians have been using for target practice, standing on the bridge of what was once ''their'' station, all but giving them the finger. The station was woefully underarmed, so she and O'Brien whipped up one hell of a bluff to make it look like ol' Terrok Nor was armed to the eyeteeth. The Cardies suspected a bluff, but when one little Bajoran female pretty much said "Wanna call it?" and they backed down...awesome.

** Having a powerful fleet that hadn't taken losses yet against the Dominion ''and'' were the (intragalactically local) inventors and masters of cloaking technology certainly helped.

* When the Cardassian fleet turns against the Dominion in the finale "What You Leave Behind.". Aside from violently opposing being used as cannon fodder to those who treat them like dirt, it's a very rare moment to see Cardassian ships be badass where as usually they've been the underdog in space enagements.
