** At one point, Garak advises Sisko to tell the Senator that "good men died getting this data rod" in order to make it more convincing that its crucial evidence. This isn't long after Garak has told Sisko that all his contacts on Cardassia died trying to find ''actual'' evidence on the Dominion. To the careful viewer, its the first indication that Garak's playing a deeper game.

* DarkerAndEdgier: With the possible exception of DS9's own [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS07E08TheSiegeOfAR558 "The Siege Of AR-558,"]] this might be the darkest the franchise ever got.

* 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 is a [[CommanderContrarian Romulan government official]] we're talking about. Most wouldn't even have bothered to stop to listen a Starfleet officer.

** Garak also says that he wants to sneak aboard Vreenak's shuttle to gather intel. He does much more than that.

* DarkestHour: The Dominion War is going ''very'' badly for the Federation, with heavy casualties on multiple fronts and no end in sight. It gets worse when news comes in that the Dominion has conquered Betazed (Deanna Troi's homeworld).



* 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 at any cost, whereas the Federation is still rebuilding its shipyards, has a manpower shortage, and has even sent out peace feelers.

* HopelessWar: The meat grinder has really kicked in, with Starfleet and the Klingons suffering high casualty rates. This is best exemplified by the weekly casualty report.
