Added DiffLines:

* CuttingTheKnot: Kira unsuccessfully presses Dukat to reinstate the Bajoran security forces, then she realizes she's dealing with the wrong person and suggests that Odo asks Weyoun. Given a command from his god, Weyoun instantly agrees.


* LudicrousPrecision: Bashir, when he glumly notes how long the trip will be without warp drive.
-->'''Bashir:''' Seventeen years, two months and three days, give or take an hour.
** Earlier, Bashir tells Garak that with his genetic augmentation public knowledge now, he no longer needs to hide his intellect. He tells the Cardassian that he predicts a 32.7% chance of survival for them.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'' introduced new uniforms for Starfleet, though they didn't have one for flag officers, yet, so Ross is featured wearing the late TNG-era Admiral's uniform. The First Contact-era Admiral's uniform would debut shortly afterwards in "Behind the Lines", before being modified into its final form in "Favor the Bold".

Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: Garak does his best to not freak out when the Jem'Hadar raise the security net, trapping them close to the ticking bomb.

Added DiffLines:

* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Dukat mentions that the war is going well for Cardassia...then adds the Dominion almost as an afterthought.


Added DiffLines:

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Kira's suggestion that the Bajoran security force be reinstated is an early sign that Dukat and Weyoun are not getting along.
