* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The holodeck scenes highlight the contrast between [[LadyOfWar Dax]] and [[ActionGirl Kira]]. Dax enjoys getting a massage from MrFanservice and playing a [[PrincessClassic medieval princess]], but Kira has to be dragged into it, with less-than-successful results. That being said, Dax also enjoys doing Klingon workout programs and spars with Worf using Bat'leths.

** In the pilot, the [=DS9=] crew tries to fake out cardassian attackers into believing that they have a huge stock of photon torpedoes, which they dismiss as "duranium shadows" (referring to a metal in torpedoes' casings). This time, they really ''do'' have a lot of torpedoes (and now a lot of torpedo launchers), but Martok dismisses it with the same.
** Also, Sisko passing intel to Garak under the pretense of getting fitted for a suit is the same pretense Garak used to pass intel to Bashir in [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS01E03PastPrologue "Past Prologue."]]

The Klingons back off, but make it clear that they do ''not'' forgive and forget. Worf goes through some soul-searching, but decides to stay in Starfleet and becomes [=DS9's=] new Strategic Operations officer after Sisko provides Worf with some of his own insights.

* TakeAThirdOption: The Klingon sneak attack on Cardassia leaves the Federation in a bind. If they don't warn the Cardassians, the Klingons will have a new power base and an impetus to attack [=DS9=] to gain control of the wormhole. If they do warn them, the they'll be betraying their allies under the Khitomer Accords. Sisko chooses to surreptitiously let slip to Garak about the coming invasion, who quickly warns Dukat, giving the Federation PlausibleDeniability

Unfortunately, it ends up not mattering in the end, as the Klingons withdraw from the Khitomer Accords anyway in response to the Federation failing to support their attack on the Cardassians.

* {{Callback}}: When trying to get Worf to play darts, O'Brien likens the game to poker--a game regularly played by Worf and others on ''TNG''. He then compares it to target practice, which was another thing Worf was known to do in the Holodeck.

Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: The Betreka Nebula incident involving the Cardassians and the Klingons. Garak dismisses it as "a minor skirmish"; Bashir is understandably skeptical of this statement given that it lasted for eighteen years.

* ArmorPiercingResponse: A sharp reminder that Kira's life [[DarkAndTroubledPast hasn't been a very happy one]]--when Jadzia asks her if she ever played make-believe as a child, Kira replies that sure, she used to make-believe that the Cardassians would stop killing Bajorans and go away all the time.

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: When Garak joins Dukat to defend the Cardassian government officials, they're supported by a pair of Starfleet officers standing unassumingly behind them. The very next scene with then, while Garak and Dukat are bloodily fighting Klingons tooth and nail, said officers are dead in a pile.

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: A minor one that illustrates just how brutal the Klingons are in battle. When Garak joins Dukat to defend the Cardassian government officials, they're supported by a pair of Starfleet officers standing unassumingly behind them. The very next scene with then, them, while Garak and Dukat are bloodily fighting Klingons tooth and nail, said officers are dead in a pile.
