* BelligerantSexualTension: Apparently an acknowledged standard for Cardassians, which would help explain a lot of why Dukat thinks Major Kira has a thing for him.

* AccidentalMisnaming: The Cardassians are clearly used to the station being called "Terok Nor", leading to a slip of the tongue during a briefing.

Added DiffLines:

* IsThatAThreat: When Yarka tells Sisko that allowing the Cardassian scientists to carry out their experiment will bring destruction, Sisko asks him if that's a threat. To Yarka, however, it's what has been prophesied.

Added DiffLines:

* CrossCulturalKerfuffle: Miles thinks he and Gilora are trading bitter barbs with each other other out of mutual dislike; she's actually ''flirting'' with him fairly shamelessly and thinks he's reciprocating. This immediately gets awkward when she gets frustrated at him being a tease and overtly propositions him in the middle of what he thought was an argument.


* AnywhereButTheirLips: The Cardassian woman who spent the episode hitting on O'Brien gives him a goodbye kiss on the cheek after he tells her that he's HappilyMarried.

* CrazyPrepared: Federation standard operating practice includes having a backup to their backup power supplies. Dejar questions this, but given what the average Starfleet ship goes through, it's pretty smart.

* ProphecyTwist: The Bajorans have a prophecy about these events: "When the river wakes, stirred once more to Janir's side, three vipers will return to their nest in the sky. When the vipers try to peer through the temple gates, a sword of stars will appear in the heavens. The temple will burn, and its gates shall be cast open." The Bajorans believe that the "vipers" are the 3 Cardassian scientists, and that their actions will destroy the wormhole. [[spoiler:The prophecy actually refers to the 3 comet fragments. When they travel through the wormhole, AppliedPhlebotinum leaks out of the fragments, forming a "subspace filament", which holds the wormhole open slightly, enabling subspace communication with the Gamma Quadrant. The prophecy was completely true, but there was no disaster, it was just misinterpreted.]]

* FantasticRacism: Miles thinks this is what's going on, at first. Then it turns out it's not ''humans'' the Cardassian he's arguing with has problems with. [[spoiler: It's not even entirely clear if her sexism is real, or just a convenient excuse to trade barbs with him (read: flirt).]]

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Despite being their "colleague", Ulani and Gilora don't get along very well with Dejar and often react uncomfortably to her. It's because she's actually an Obsidian Order agent who is there to (without Ulani or Gilora's knowledge) sabotage the mission. When Gilora realizes what Dejar's done, she doesn't hesitate to speak up.
