Counter-insurgency program Edit

It sounds like from this page that this program is just a part of the lock-down situation Ben, Jake and Miles are stuck in, activated when they escape the neurcene gas. However the page for Counter-insurgency program indicates that the program is the lock-down activated when O'Brien first tries to set aside the file to investigate later. It's been a while since I've watched this one so I can't say for sure, but I think the latter is true here, in which case this episode article is error and needs tweaking; otherwise Counter-insurgency program needs tweaking. --Ds093 04:38, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

"Warning. Workers have escaped from ore processing unit 5. Initiating station-wide counter insurgency program." - There is a program running before that, that releases the gas, but it looks like at that point it's just anti-riot. Izkata 23:05, January 4, 2011 (UTC)

Goof Edit

I don't know if there are ever any goofs featured on this site, but I noticed that during the scene where Odo and Quark are trapped and Odo assures Quark that he's the most devious Ferengi Odo has ever met, two people can be seen walking by in the background, calmly chatting with one another, as if the threat of momentary death doesn't bother them all that much. 24.218.218.197 04:50, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

'momentary death'... what an interesting idea! :p Derekbd 19:04, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

Removed Edit

Qutoes Edit

Removed the following quotes or portions of quotes as not memorable:

"Dukat... if you are seeing this recording, it means you tried to abandon your post while the station's self-destruct sequence was engaged. That will not be permitted. You have lost control of Terok Nor, disgracing yourself and Cardassia. Your attempt to escape is no doubt a final act of cowardice. All fail-safes have been eliminated. Your personal access codes have been rescinded. The destruct sequence can no longer be halted. All you can do now is contemplate the depth of your disgrace... and try to die like a Cardassian."

- Legate Kell, in a recording played after Dukat tries to transport off the station

Well, is there anything I can do to help?"
"Not unless you have a level nine Cardassian security clearance."
"Let's see. I think I have everything from levels one through seven."
"I only have levels one through six."


"This force field isn't just protecting the door, it goes through the bulkheads, the ceiling, the deck... there's nowhere for me to go."
"You're telling me I'm stuck here? With you?"
"No! I'm stuck here, with you! Believe me, a far worse fate... and stay away from my computer!"

- Odo and Quark


"I suppose during the Occupation, the Cardassians considered their security chief a security risk."
"And I know why."
"Oh, do you?"
"It's because they knew you were an honorable man. The kind of person who would do the right thing regardless of the circumstances. And now, your integrity... is going to get us both killed. I hope you're happy!"

- Odo and Quark


"'A self-important con artist who is nowhere near as clever as he thinks.' That's your official security evaluation of me."
"Quark, I told you to stay away from the computer."
"Two hours ago, you told me I was the most devious Ferengi you ever met!"
"I thought we were going to die, I was trying to be nice."

- Odo and Quark

Nitpicks Edit

  • Disabling the dampening field that prevents them from using their communicators knocks out the turbo lifts and transporters. They neglect to access the Defiant and runabouts and use theirs to evacuate people.

Nitpick. - Archduk3 07:59, November 2, 2011 (UTC)

When Garak gets to Ops, he remarks on the irony that the only spot left in the galaxy that still validates his access codes and security protocols is a Bajoran space station. However in "Second Skin", two episodes earlier, he uses a high-level Cardassian security code: 9-2-1-8 Black to get the Defiant into Cardassian space and it is accepted by the Cardassian ships that stopped them. Is the latter a goof? 74.69.9.224 18:56, January 26, 2014 (UTC)
That wasn't an 'access code', it was a verification code, if you want to get technical. 31dot (talk) 21:15, January 26, 2014 (UTC)
Not necessarily a goof, regardless of the terminology. Who is to say that the code he used in "Second Skin" was his own? Garack is a capable man; he could have stolen or otherwise acquired a code before setting off on the mission. --OuroborosCobra talk 04:32, January 27, 2014 (UTC)

In "Second Skin" Garak tells Entek that he still has contacts, and that Entek will have years of fun working out who they are. My assumption is the code he gives to the patrol ship is up to date and provided by one of these contacts. Probably one of the people who dies in "In the Pale Moonlight" with in a day of him talking to them. Lt.Lovett (talk) 19:57, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
