** There's a subtle one combined with a bit of Fridge Logic: note that when Sisko first enlists Garak to help him get his hands on those top secret Dominion war plans to attack the Romulans, Garak never questions that some such plans exist, only that he or anyone he knows can possibly lay hands on them. That's because he's quite certain they exist. [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS04E26BrokenLink As the female changeling told him, the Dominion considered any race that dared attack the Founders as good as dead]]; [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS03E21TheDieIsCast and the Romulans were among its attackers]]!

-->'''Sisko:''' But the most damning thing of all is... I think I can live with it. And if I'd have to do it all over again... I would.

Added DiffLines:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Senator Vreenak is a SmugSnake, but he is at least willing to listen to Sisko's points and it's implied that had the data rod passed muster, he would've supported Romulus entering the war to help the Federation. Might not sound like much, but this a a [[CommanderContrarian Romulan government official]] we're talking about. Most wouldn't even have bothered to stop to listen a Starfleet officer.

** Senator Vreenak, the SmugSnake pro-Dominion senator. He knows he's on the winning team, and constantly rubs it in Sisko's face.

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Garak has Weyoun and Damar bicker more in the holotape to make the fake strategy meeting more realistic.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrisy}}: Garak calls out Sisko for acting moral, because if he were ''truly'' moral, he wouldn't have enlisted the most amoral man on the station to do the dirty work.

* SarcasmMode: Sisko's bitterly triumphant announcement of the Romulans' entry into the war, alluding to a BlackAndWhiteMorality that he knows for a fact does not exist:that, like Tolar and Vreenak, has lately been rendered [[InsistentTerminology another tragic casualty]] of this miserable war:



** The genuine Cardassian optolythic data rod Sisko and Garak require for their scheme is usually only manufactured by the Cardassian government on an as-needed basis. Obtaining it anywhere else requires "a small miracle".

* WhatTheHellHero: There's some back and forth on this one. Sisko punches greets Garak with a backhand to the face after he realizes the Cardassian planted a bomb in blew up Senator Vreenak's shuttle. Garak immediately calls him out on for letting his hypocrisy.temper get the better of him. Then Sisko accuses him of never being committed to his first plan at all, only intending to murder Vreenak all along, which Garak hotly denies. When he accuses Garak of murdering Tolar as well, however, and Garak rationalizes Tolar's death as another tragic "casualty" of the war, Sisko sees fit to wallop him again.

Added DiffLines:

** After the data rod is ready, Garak calmly tells Tolar that he'll be paying him a visit later. Next we hear of it, Tolar is dead.


Added DiffLines:

** Garak also says this is why Vreenak and Grathon Tolar died. He hoped the data rod would pass muster, but he quickly found Tolar's skills lacking. Killing Vreenak in a shuttle explosion makes the Dominion look even more guilty (as well as explains away the rod's imperfections), while Tolar's death ties up a problematic loose end.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Vreenak offers cold hard facts of the current situation. The Dominion has fully functional shipyards, an ever-increasing Jem'Hadar population, and a commitment to win the war, whereas the Federation is still rebuilding its shipyards, has a manpower shortage, and has even sent out peace feelers.


Added DiffLines:

* WhamEpisode: The Romulans enter and change the dynamic of the war.
