Added DiffLines:

* DuelToTheDeath: {{Subverted}}. Worf pimp-slaps Drex, which Klingons consider a challenge to lethal combat, but doesn't bother killing him. Humiliating him by taking his ''d'k tahg'' serves Worf's purpose even better.


Added DiffLines:

* [[CaptainObvious Major Obvious]]: According to Worf, when Kira and Jadzia show up dressed as medieval princesses.
--> '''Kira:''' I, ah...I don't usually dress like this. We were in the holosuite.\\
'''Worf:''' So I gathered.

--> '''Garak:''' Who would've thought that the two of us would be fighting side-by-side?\\
''({{beat}})''\\
'''Dukat:''' Just remember, when you fire that [phaser], you're aiming it at a ''Klingon''.\\
'''Garak:''' I'll try to keep that in mind.



''{{beat}}''\\

to:

''{{beat}}''\\''({{beat}})''\\



** Also, Kira ''literally'' gets stabbed in the back by an attacking Klingon. Unfortunately, Kira's [[OnlyAFleshWound too busy being a]] badass to care, and beats his sorry ass anyway.

* BullyingADragon: Downplayed. Three Klingons attack Garak in his shop, but he doesn't bother fighting back. Fast forward to the season finale and we see that Garak is able to put up a good fight against WORF when he wants to. He was likely making it a point to keep the Klingons from realizing he was more than a "simple tailor".

** When the Klingons board the station they get their asses comprehensively handed to them by pretty much everyone. Trying to charge down phasers with swords doesn't help.

Added DiffLines:

* PlausibleDeniability: Overtly warning the Cardassians would be a treaty violation. Saying too much in front of a simple tailor who turns out to be a spy is an honest mistake, we swear!

Added DiffLines:

* SnarkToSnarkCombat: Garak naturally can't help but throw barbs at Dukat during his warning about the invasion and Dukat fires right back with his own shots.
-->'''Garak''': We can stand here all day reminding ourselves how much we ''hate'' each other but you don't have the time.

* PalmBloodletting: Martok makes Sisko and Kira do this along with himself so they can all prove that they're not changelings.

Added DiffLines:

* HumansThroughAlienEyes: Garak and Quark have a dialogue in which TheFederation itself is seen through non-Fed eyes, using Garak's first taste of root beer as a metaphor.
--> '''Garak:''' It's ''vile''!\\
'''Quark:''' I know. It's so bubbly and cloying and happy.\\
'''Garak:''' Just like the Federation.\\
'''Quark:''' And you know what's really frightening? If you drink enough of it, you begin to like it.\\
'''Garak:''' It's ''insidious''.\\
'''Quark:''' Just like the Federation.\\
''{{beat}}''\\
'''Garak:''' Do you think they'll be able to save us?\\
'''Quark:''' I hope so.

* AllForNothing: The [=DS9=] crew go to great lengths to warn the Cardassians about the coming invasion while still trying to preserve the Federation-Klingon alliance. It turns out to be a waste of time because the Klingons abrogate the Khitomer Accords anyway when the Federation Council condemns the invasion.

It turns out to be a waste of time because the Klingons abrogate the Khitomer Accords anyway when the Federation Council condemns the invasion. At most, the crew's warning the Cardassians affords them the chance to put up a decent defence, instead of the Klingons just steamrolling their way to Cardassia Prime.

* 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.
