Data Stellare Sconosciuta: Ora che il passato di Bashir è stato rivelato, gli viene richiesto di lavorare con un gruppo di persone che, come lui, hanno subito interventi genetici. Bashir si trova quindi con alcune persone che, differentemente da lui, sono rimaste nell'istituto dove ha subito l'intervento, ognuna delle quali presenta una caratteristica predominante: Jack (aggressivo), Lauren (sensuale), Patrick (frivolo), e Sarina (timida). Si spera che Bashir possa aiutare queste persone ad inserirsi normalmente nella società.
  • Ron Moore ha soprannominato il gruppo di persone modificate geneticamente Jack Pack.
  • Bashir mostra a Sisko un PADD intitolato «Analysis Mode - 47».
  • Sul PADD con la scheda di Bashir che ha in mano Lauren c'è il numero 4774.
  • Probabilmente i mutanti sono la cosa più simile agli dei, tuttavia nessuno di loro conosce la Teoria del Caos: come mai ci mettono giorni a scoprire che ogni piccolo imprevisto inficia la più grande e precisa delle loro previsioni? E come mai a nessun altro su Deep Space Nine o al Comando della Flotta viene in mente questa obiezione?
  • Nei sottotitoli di Canal Jimmy Sarina viene chiamata Serena.
Weyoun: Odo...
Odo: Yes, I know, I honor you with my presence!
Sisko: Surrender is not an option. I'm happy to hear your group's advice on how to win this war... I don't need advice on how to lose it.
Bashir: We're not gods.
Jack: Maybe not, but we're the next best thing.
Sisko: I don't care if odds are against us. If we're going to lose, then we're going to go down fighting, so that when our descendants someday rise up against the Dominion, they'll know what they're made of.
Ecco com'era stata pensata la scena in cui Bashir chiede a Sarina di essere liberato dalle corde. La prima e le ultime due battute di Bashir, con piccole variazioni, sono quelle dette nell'episodio.
     BASHIR
   Untie me. Please.
    (no response)
   Sarina.

 She says nothing. Frustrated, Bashir struggles to free
 himself. After a few beats, he's surprised to hear a
 small, tremulous voice --

     SARINA
   I'm sorry.

 Bashir reacts to the first words he's ever heard her
 speak, realizing that she must be conflicted if she's
 driven to utter them.

 She has to pull herself up from the deep well she's
 lived in for so many years -- she doesn't know how to
 say what she feels, she doesn't even know what she
 feels.

     SARINA
   I can't untie you.

     BASHIR
    (gently)
   Yes, you can. If you think it's
   the right thing to do.

     SARINA
    (at a loss)
   I don't know...

     BASHIR
   I think you do. I think that's
   why you spoke to me just now. You
   could've stayed quiet, but you
   didn't. And the only reason I can
   think of is that you don't want to
   have the deaths of so many people
   on your hands.

     SARINA
   Jack would be mad.

 Bashir realizes something about her that he's been
 sensing all along -- seeing an opening, he eases his
 way toward it.

     BASHIR
    (gently)
   Yes, he would. And I know you
   don't want that to happen.

 Bashir sees something flicker across her features, and
 he knows what he's thinking is true --

     BASHIR
   I've seen the way you look at him
   when you think no one is watching.
   I know how much you care about
   him.

 Sarina looks down, trying to shut out his words.
 Emotion is so alien to her that it's painful for her to
 feel so exposed.

     BASHIR
   Sarina, if you don't let me stop
   them, they're going to be arrested
   and charged with treason. Do you
   know what that means? You'll
   never see any of them again.
    (beat)
   You'll never see Jack again.

 She looks up, stricken by this thought. Bashir holds
 her gaze, says nothing more. He knows he has to let
 her sit with this for a moment and decide what she
 wants to do. Off Sarina's face as we wonder what
 she'll do...
  • Questa è l'estrapolazione dallo script dell'intero discorso di Damar: "Fellow citizens, these are great days for Cardassia. Together with our Dominion allies, we have given our enemies cause to fear us once more. The war with the Federation accomplished our goals. Cardassia is strong again, an empire We are safe behind secure borders, and no one will ever dare attack us again. From this position of strength, we are poised to take another bold step that will insure our future. [pausa d'effetto] Peace. [pausa lunga] It is time to bring an end to this war with the Federation. It is time for us to rebuild on the foundation of strength we have laid. [pausa] The sons of Cardassia shed their blood to defend their home. Their sacrifice must not be in vain. The peace we seek will honor their memory, and preserve the gains for which they gave their lives. [pausa] Today I challenge the Federation to answer my call for peace. I'm ready at any time to meet with its representatives to discuss how we can bring an end to hostilities. As your leader, I pledge that I will do everything in my power to protect Cardassia and allow us to move forward into a new era. [pausa] This I vow with my life's blood. For my sons... For all our sons."
  • Quando era stato trasmesso per la prima volta questo l'episodio era circolato un brano dello script su Internet:
                                  DAMAR
                             (filtered)
                   Together with our Dominion allies, we
                   have given our enemies cause to fear us
                   once more.
    
                                  O'BRIEN
                             (dry)
                   Can't argue with that.
    
    In the background, Lauren gets up and moves so she can see the
    screen.  For some reason, she too is intrigued by Damar's speech.
    
                                  DAMAR
                             (filtered, continuing)
                   The war with the Federation accomplished
                   our goals.
    
    Now Jack emerges from his room to get a closer look, as if drawn by
    the sound of Damar's voice.
    
                                  LAUREN
                   Who is he?
    
                                  BASHIR
                   Damar -- the new head of the Cardassian
                   Government.
    
                                  DAMAR
                             (filtered)
                   We are safe behind secure borders, and
                   no one will dare attack us again.
    
                                  PATRICK
                             (with sympathy)
                   Whoever he is, he's sad.
    
                                  LAUREN
                   Ashamed is more like it.
    
    Bashir's never seen the group focus on anything before, and it
    intrigues him.
    
                                  DAMAR
                             (filtered)
                   The time has come for us to take another
                   bold step that will ensure our future.
                             (beat)
                   Peace.
    
    Damar lets this hang in the air for a beat. Bashir and O'Brien
    exchange looks -- this is better than a declaration of redoubled
    hostilities, but they're not ready to take Damar at face value.
    
                                  LAUREN
                   Looks like he hasn't slept in days.
    
                                  JACK
                   Me thought I heard a voice cry "Sleep
                   No More! Damar does murder sleep!"
    
                                  O'BRIEN
                   Quiet.
    
    Bashir stops O'Brien before he says any more -- we see that the
    Doctor wants to hear what they have to say.
    
                                  DAMAR
                             (filtered)
                   It is time to bring an end to this war
                   with the Federation.
    
                                  LAUREN
                             (realizing)
                   He killed someone.
    
                                  PATRICK
                             (nodding)
                   Someone close to him.
    
    Bashir and O'Brien don't know what to make of their comments.
    
                                  DAMAR
                             (filtered)
                   It is time for us to rebuild on the
                   foundation of strength we have laid.
    
                                  JACK
                             (Pointing at Damar)
                   Pretender! He doesn't belong to the
                   throne and he knows it!
    
                                  DAMAR
                             (filtered)
                   Today I challenge the Federation to
                   answer my call for peace.
    
                                  LAUREN
                   He's caught up in something he can't
                   control...
    
                                  DAMAR
                             (filtered)
                   I'm ready at any time to meet with its
                   representitives to discuss how we can
                   bring an end to hostilities.
    
                                  JACK
                   Someone's making him say all this.
                   Someone he hates almost as much as he
                   fears.
    
                                  DAMAR
                             (filtered)
                   I pledge that I will do everything in
                   my power to protect Cardassia and allow
                   us to move forward into a new era.
                             (beat)
                   This I vow with my life's blood. For my
                   sons... For all our sons.
    
    And with that, the transmission ENDS and the screen returns to the
    Cardassian emblem.
    
                                  JACK
                   Not bad, not bad at all. It's epic,
                   really. The Pretender who kills the
                   King and seizes the throne.
    
                                  LAUREN
                   Not the King, he's still alive.
    
                                  JACK
                   Right. That explains the guilt.
    
                                  PATRICK
                   The Queen maybe?
                             (even better)
                   Or a Princess?
    
                                  JACK
                   Yes... Yes! And now the Pretender finds
                   himself in a league with... a Dark
                   Knight he can't control.
    
    Bashir and O'Brien turn and look at each other, wondering how these
    three could have gleaned all this from Damar's speech. Off their
    puzzled features...
    
    EXT. SPACE - DEEP SPACE NINE (OPTICAL)
    
    Re-establishing.
    
    INT. OPS
    
    where an excited Bashir is telling Dax and Kira what happened.
    O'Brien looks from his console.
    
                                  BASHIR
                   It was amazing. They pieced together the
                   entire story of how Damar came to power
                   just by watching his speech.
    
                                  DAX
                   Are you sure you're not reading to much
                   into it?
    
                                  BASHIR
                   Don't you see? Weyoun is the Dark Knight,
                   Gul Dukat is the deposed King, Damar is
                   the Pretender to the throne, and Ziyal
                   is the innocent princess he murdered.
                   Now the Pretender is wracked with guilt
                   over what he did, but he can't turn his
                   back.
    
                                  KIRA
                   It pretty much hangs together.
    
                                  BASHIR
                   You were there, Chief. You saw what
                   happened.
    
                                  O'BRIEN
                   It was weird, I have to admit.
    
                                  BASHIR
                   To them it was like some sort of
                   Shakespearean tragedy. They were
                   fascinated by the whole thing.  They
                   started bombarding me with questions
                   about Cardassia and the war. I've never
                   seen them so engaged.
    
                                  DAX
                             (sly)
                   And you're going to try to keep them
                   'engaged'?
    
                                  BASHIR
                   I don't know if I can; I'm running out
                   of material.
    
                                  KIRA
                   What do you mean?
    
                                  BASHIR
                   They've already gone through everything
                   the library has on Cardassia and the
                   Dominion.
    
    Sisko ENTERS his office -- something's on his mind and he can't
    figure out how he feels about it.
    
                                  SISKO
                   Roll out the red carpet.
    
                                  O'BRIEN
                   Visitors, sir?
    
                                  SISKO
                             (crossing down)
                   Starfleet has agreed to enter into peace
                   negotiations with the Dominion. Damar and
                   Weyoun will be arriving in the morning.
                             (grimacing)
                   I'm the lucky one who gets to sit across
                   the table and try to keep from throttling
                   them.
    
                                  BASHIR
                   That's great.
    
    Sisko shoots him a look --
    
                                  O'BRIEN
                   I don't know. It's hard to believe the
                   Dominion really wants peace.
    
                                  KIRA
                   I wouldn't be surprised if they were
                   just stalling for time.
    
                                  SISKO
                   Maybe. I guess we'll find out.
    
                                  BASHIR
                   Sir, is there any way I can get a
                   transcript of the negotiations?
    
                                  SISKO
                   You can do better than that.
    
    Bashir is skeptical.
    
                                  SISKO
                             (continuing)
                   The Dominion is insisting that the
                   proceedings be holo-recorded so that
                   everyone can see their desire for peace
                   is sincere.
    
                                  BASHIR
                   Perfect.
    
                   And with that, Bashir turns and heads
                   for the door. Sisko watches him go,
                   wondering what that was all about.
    
                                  DAX
                   Look on the bright side, Benjamin. If
                   you hurt somebody, everyone will be able
                   to see what made you snap.
    
    Off Sisko's face as he considers this...

         DAMAR
       Together with our Dominion allies,
       we have given our enemies cause to
       fear us once more.
    
         O'BRIEN
        (dry)
       Can't argue with that.
    
     In the background, Lauren gets up and moves so she can
     see the screen. For some reason, she too is intrigued
     by Damar's speech.
    
     Jack emerges from his room to get a closer look, as if
     drawn by the sound of Damar's voice. Even Sarina is
     listening.
    
      LAUREN                                 DAMAR
     Who's he?                              (in background)
                                      The war with the
      BASHIR                          Federation accomplished
     Damar -- the new head of         our goals. Cardassia is
     the Cardassian government.       strong again, an empire
                                      to be feared. We are
      JACK                            safe behind secure
     "Uneasy lies the head            borders, and no one will
     that wears the crown."           ever dare attack us again.
    
     Bashir has never seen the group focus on anything
     before, and it intrigues him.
    
      PATRICK                                 DAMAR
        (with sympathy)               From this position of
     He's sad.                        strength, we are poised
                                      to take another bold step
      LAUREN                          that will insure our
     Ashamed is more like it.         future.
                                          (dramatic pause)
    
     While O'Brien listens to the speech, Bashir looks
     around at the group. He's not quite sure what to make
     of their comments.
    
                                              DAMAR
                                      Peace.
      BASHIR                              (a long beat)
        (to Lauren)
     Why do you say that?
    
      O'BRIEN                                 DAMAR
        (to Bashir)                   It is time to bring an
     Shhh.                            end to this war with the
                                      Federation. It is time
      LAUREN                          for us to rebuild on the
     He looks like a man who          foundation of strength
     doesn't sleep.                   we have laid.
                                          (beat)
      JACK                            The sons of Cardassia
     "Methought I heard a             shed their blood to
     voice cry, 'Sleep no             defend their home. Their
     more! Damar does murder          sacrifice must not be in
     sleep!'"                         vain.
    
      PATRICK                                 DAMAR
        (realizing)                   The peace we seek will

      LAUREN                          which they gave their

     Someone close to him.                 (beat)
    
     Bashir and O'Brien exchange a look. They can't
     understand how Jack and the others are seeing all these
     things.
    
      O'BRIEN                                 DAMAR
      (to Bashir)                     Today I challenge the
     How could they know that?        Federation to answer my
                                      call for peace. I'm
      JACK                            ready at any time to meet
        (pointing at Damar)           with its representatives
     Pretender! You don't             to discuss how we can
     belong on that throne and        bring an end to
     you know it.                     hostilities. As your
                                      leader, I pledge that I
      PATRICK                         will do everything in my
     Someone's making him say         power to protect
     all this. He doesn't             Cardassia and allow us
     want to.                         to move forward into a
                                      new era.
                                           (beat)
                                      This I vow with my life's blood.
    
     And with that, the transmission ENDS and the screen
     returns to the Cardassian emblem. Bashir looks at the
     group trying to understand what's happened.
    
         BASHIR
       Did any of you know who Damar was
       before today?
    
         JACK
       No, but it's obvious who he is.
       The Pretender who killed the king
       and seized the throne.
    
         LAUREN
       Not the king, he's still alive.
    
         PATRICK
       The queen maybe?
        (even better)
       Or a princess.
    
         BASHIR
       Yes. Gul Dukat's daughter. Her
       name was Ziyal.
    
         JACK
       And now the Pretender finds
       himself in league with a... a Dark
       Knight he can't control.
    
         O'BRIEN
        (to Bashir)
       Weyoun?
    
     Bashir and O'Brien look at each other, wondering how
     the hell these three could have gleaned all this from
     Damar's speech.
    
         JACK
       Not a bad story. It's epic
       really.
        (to Bashir)
       What else can you tell us?
    
     Off this moment...
    
    19   OMITTED
    
    20   INT. OPS
    
     where an excited Bashir is telling Dax and Kira what
     happened.
    
         BASHIR
       It was amazing. They pieced
       together the entire story of how
       Damar came to power. Don't you
       see?
       Weyoun is the Dark Knight, Gul
       Dukat is the deposed King, Damar
       is the Pretender to the throne,
       and Ziyal is the innocent Princess
       he murdered. Now the Pretender is
       wracked with guilt over what he
       did.
    
         KIRA
       And they got all that just from
       watching Damar's speech?
    
         BASHIR
        (nods)
       They were fascinated by the whole
       thing, started bombarding me with
       questions about Cardassia and the
       war. I've never seen them so
       engaged.
    
         DAX
       And you want to keep them engaged?
         BASHIR
       I'm going to try, but I'm running
       out of material.
    
         KIRA
       What do you mean?
    
         BASHIR
       They've already gone through
       everything the computer has on
       Cardassia and the Dominion.
    
     Sisko ENTERS from his office -- something's on his mind
     and he can't figure out how he feels about it.
    
         SISKO
       Roll out the red carpet.
    
         DAX
       Visitors?
    
         SISKO
        (crossing down)
       Starfleet has agreed to listen to
       what Damar has to say. He and
       Weyoun will be arriving in the
       morning.
        (grimacing)
       I'm the lucky one who gets to sit
       across the table from them.
    
         BASHIR
       This is great.
    
     Sisko shoots him a look --
    
         KIRA
       It's hard to believe the Dominion
       really wants peace. I wouldn't be
       surprised if they were just
       stalling for time in order to
       regroup.
    
         BASHIR
       Sir, is there any way I can get a
       transcript of the negotiations?
    
         SISKO
       You can do better than that.
        (skeptical)
       The Dominion insisted on recording
       the proceedings so everyone can
       see that their desire for peace is
       sincere.
    
         BASHIR
       Perfect.
    
     And with that, Bashir turns and heads for the door.
     Sisko watches him go, wondering what that was all
     about.
    
        DAX
       You shouldn't've agreed to that,
       Benjamin.
        (off his look)
       Now you're going to have to be on
       your best behavior.
    
     Off Sisko's face as he considers this...
