Added DiffLines:

* TooCleverByHalf: The main thrust of the episode. Basically, they forget that other people are ''also'' allowed to analyze things and make their own moves. The most immediate result is that their attempt to turn over intelligence is instantly discovered and prevented. The one they never found about (but we the audience learned a few episodes prior) is that the Dominion ''also'' predicted the Earth-base rebellion the Jack Pack think is the only hope and plan to sterilize the planet to prevent that very thing.

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Each of the Jack Pack gets one. Lauren's obvious sexual interest in Bashir from just his file photo, Patrick's child-like begging for Dr. Loews not to leave him, and Jack deliberately injuring Dr. Loews by handing her the PADD with broken glass on her palm, then offering a very obvious insincere apology.

* BewareTheSuperman: The Jack Pack make for a very compelling case for why the Federation government is afraid of genetic engineering. They're smart and helpful, but they almost cause the Federation to lose the war because their arrogance.

* DefiantToTheEnd: Sisko's makes it very clear to Bashir that he will ''never'' surrender to Dominion, no matter what predictions the Jack Pack makes.

* FauxAffablyEvil: Jack. One moment congratulating Bashir for being like him, the next threatening to snap Sarina's neck if he doesn't get his way.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: The "Jack Pack" are able to utterly dismantle the Dominion's negotiation efforts simply by ''observation''. Jack especially has a crowning moment by analyzing a recording of Weyoun: Because the Vorta language is heavily-inflected[[note]]inflected languages rely heavily on word endings and morphology, and verb case to convey their meaning. For example, Modern English is lightly-inflected, and is heavily dependent on tone of voice when spoken, or punctuation when written, to differentiate a question from a statement. In an inflected language, the words may have completely different endings altogether.[[/note]], much of the real meaning of Weyoun's remarks are lost when translated into English by the Universal Translator. Jack instead listens to him with the Translator ''disabled'', and is able to deduce from his ''word tense and case alone'' that the Dominion is trying to pull a fast one in their negotiations. The "Pack's" analysis discovers that a seemingly inconsequential world the Dominion is requesting to trade for would actually enable them to produce Ketracel White in the Alpha Quadrant, depriving the Federation of one of its major advantages.[[note]]The Jem'Hadar die without access to the White.[[/note]]

* BlatantLies: When Odo catches Weyoun and Damar at the rendezvous, they claim that they got lost. Odo doesn't bother to dignify that with a response.



* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: In what can only be described as tongue-in-cheek in-universe GenreSavvy, The Jack Pack accurately analyze Damar's personality and motivations by likening him and everyone in the Dominion to [[{{Characters}} Character Types]] (albeit transplanting them as Fantasy characters). They even refer to events the viewer has recently seen in prior episodes as "a good story."
