Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: Quark mentions "Vulcan IDIC pins" as an example of the "collectible merchandise" he'd like to market. Creator/GeneRoddenberry famously invented the IDIC pin solely for the purpose of selling ''Star Trek'' fans a bit of collectible merchandise.

Added DiffLines:

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: When [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Sisko]] decks a Jem'Hadar guard and then kills him with his gun, it's expected. When ''Quark'' pops another guard about to kill Sisko... well, even the commander is impressed.

Added DiffLines:

** Eris also shows no reaction to seeing Odo right after a conversation about the Founders. This is possibly because the writers hadn't decided that the Changelings were the Founders yet (or maybe she just has a really good poker face).

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: After beaming into Ops, the crew erects a containment field around the Jem'Hadar. To make his threat clear, he then steps through it unfazed. During the battle, the Jem'Hadar weapons effortlessly pass through the shields.


* BlatantLies: Quark says that his brother Rom is not quite as liberal as he is when it comes to parenting, even though Quark is extremely strict on everything. Not to mention that we've seen Rom is ''unimaginably'' liberal by Ferengi standards.

* BlatantLies: Quark says that his brother Rom is not quite as liberal as he is when it comes to parenting, even though Quark is extremely strict on everything. Not to mention that we've seen Rom is ''unimaginably'' liberal by Ferengi standards. On the other hand however, it is also true that Rom is the victim of some serious EarlyInstallmentWeirdness. The Rom we see in his debut episode manhandling Nog and who a few episodes later is quite willing to kill Quark to gain the bar is not the same Rom that we would become accustomed to.


** The Jem'Hadar guard doesn't have a visible Ketracel-White tube.

Added DiffLines:

* PsiBlast: When Quark removes the MacGuffin protecting themselves from Jem'Hadar's psychic powers, Eris uses psychic blasts to free Sisko and Quark and even take out some of the titular aliens. Only it was a lie, she's really working for the Dominion and the [[FakinMacGuffin MacGuffin was fake]].


The group arrives at an uninhabited planet, which Quark mentions he wants to start exploiting for resources. They do some farting about and there's whacky antics with Quark, causing Nog to run off and Jake to go after him. Just as it looks like Sisko is going to beat the crap out of Quark for being an annoyance, a woman stumbles out of the forest. She says she's running from the Jem'Hadar, who then appear out of thin air and take the three captive. The kids return to find their guardians gone, and decide to follow the footprints. In a cave, the woman introduces herself as Eris, who fills them in on the Jem'Hadar: they're the feared soldiers of the Dominion. Her homeworld was offered membership, but when they refused, the Dominion sent in the Jem'Hadar which quickly conquered them. Despite this, Sisko begins working on an escape plan. Eris has psionic powers, but they are being suppressed with a collar she's wearing.

** Of course, [[{{Hypocrite}} the Ferengi treat their women as second-class citizens]]. On the other hand, "Hew-Mon" society has done some pretty awful things to women as well... some far worse than anything seen on Ferenginar.

Even if the Ferengi treat women like property, at least they ''value'' property.

Added DiffLines:

* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Quark, when his sleeve catches fire as he was trying to pick out a couple of bugs from the cooking pot.

Added DiffLines:

* DispenseWithThePleasantries: Kira chides Talak'talan for beaming into Ops unannounced, but the Third merely gets to the point and says that they have detained Sisko.

* ShoutOut: When Nog and Jake can't find Sisko and Quark, Nog suggests that they were attacked by a wild animal. Jake points out that the only surface-dwelling animals on the planet are insects. "Maybe they were attacked by a [[Literature.TheFellowshipOfTheRing ferocious tree]]."

Added DiffLines:

* PassiveAggressiveKombat: Captain Keogh and Dax get into a round of this prior to leaving the station, with both getting in good hits. Dax tries to offer Keogh some blatantly obvious advice about preparing the ''Odyssey'' for combat, while Keogh snarks she should try serving on a starship. Dax smugly says she's happy where she is, implying she thinks the rundown [=DS9=] is a more prestigious posting than the glamorous ''Odyssey'' under a man like Keogh.

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: While walking through a lush forest with lots of tall trees, Sisko states the planet they are on resembles Earth during the early Devonian period. The first trees didn't appear on Earth until the late Devonian period.
