I removed the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics from the list of references, as I've just watched this episode and am fairly sure it's not mentioned in it. The only related reference is to the Ural Mountains, which were at one time in the USSR, but it's a reach to consider that a reference to the USSR (even allowing for the mention on the SS Tsiolkovsky dedication plaque).
If I missed some other reference to the USSR in the episode, please feel free to restore the link. —Josiah Rowe 20:25, September 26, 2010 (UTC)
- Bashir mentions MI5 suspecting the Soviets for some missing agents in West Berlin. Soviets == USSR. :) -- sulfur 21:04, September 26, 2010 (UTC)
