* 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.

(Note - while the plan worked perfectly on-screen, in the StarTrekExpandedUniverse the Romulans eventually uncovered the entire affair leading to all out war between the Federation and Romulan Empire making the success pyrrhic to say the least.)

** PoisonousFriend: Garak is brought on board the scheme to play this role. When Sisko complains about the assassination, Garak calls him on it.

** There's a subtle one combined with a bit of FridgeBrilliance: 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]]!

** 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.
