Data Stellare Sconosciuta: Ignorando gli avvertimenti dei Profeti, Sisko guida un'invasione nel territorio del Dominio.
Fontaine (a Quark e Bashir): Lucky for you, space is big. There're a lot of other nice girls out there, with or without spots, capice?
Worf: It's a private matter.
Jadzia: We're thinking of having a baby!
Worf: It was a private matter.
Durante la cerimonia in cui l'Ammiraglio Ross consegna la medaglia a Sisko il dialogo tra Dax e gli altri non si limita ad un paio di battute, come visto nell'episodio, ma era il seguente (in grigio le scene incluse nell'episodio):
DAX (Re: Sisko) (with a twinkle in her eyes) And to think... I knew him when he was just a callow youth. O'BRIEN I bet even then he showed signs of greatness. DAX (thinking about it) Only with the ladies. JAKE (interested) I'd like to hear more about that. WORF Then let him tell you. DAX (to Worf, re: Sisko) But he'll leave out all the good parts. 4 ANGLE ON ROSS AND SISKO ROSS The medal usually comes with a lot more pomp and ceremony, but we figured you wouldn't want to be called back to Earth just to sit through a bad chicken dinner with a bunch of brass hats. SISKO This suits me fine, admiral. Dax approaches and cranes her head to look at the medal. DAX Now you have something else to put on your desk besides that baseball. WORF What she means to say, captain, is that she can't think of anyone more deserving of this honor. O'BRIEN I certainly can't. JAKE I'm proud of you, Dad.
La scena successiva a quella in cui Bashir e Quark apprendono del desiderio di avere un figlio da parte di Jadzia e Worf, è stata completamente tagliata. Si tratta di una riunione alla quale Worf era stato convocato nella scena precedente, nessuno si è chiesto perché Sisko chiami Worf via intercom?
8 INT. WARDROOM Sisko, Worf, O'Brien and GARAK are gathered near the wall monitor which displays a graphic of the Cardassian border. There are various PADDs displaying star charts scattered about the table. WORF What about the Torg'Q system? Of all the targets along the border, it's the closest to Cardassia Prime. GARAK It's also the most heavily fortified. WORF True. (to Sisko) But that could work to our advantage. The Dominion will never expect us to attack there. O'BRIEN (skeptical) The element of surprise might give us an initial advantage... but I'm not sure how long it would last. And I don't even want to think about our casualty figures... GARAK I recommend the Ventani System. I know it's a long way from Cardassia Prime, but its second planet was the birthplace of Tret Akleen -- the father of the Cardassian Empire. To lose such sacred ground would be devastating to Cardassians everywhere. And a great propaganda victory for you. WORF Even so, there is little strategic value in holding the Ventani System. SISKO And its loss would have no effect on the Jem'Hadar. GARAK True. Under this, Sisko notices that O'Brien has fallen very quiet as he mulls over one of the star charts. SISKO Something on your mind, Chief? O'BRIEN What about the Chin'toka System, sir? WORF The Chin'toka System is protected by a fleet of Dominion ships. O'BRIEN The last time we patrolled that section of the border, I noticed something strange about the warp signatures of their bigger ships... the cruisers, the destroyers... SISKO (interested) Go on. O'BRIEN They were slightly different from the first time we scanned them. The field variance readings seemed almost too synchronized. SISKO Are you suggesting that the warp signatures are fake? That those ships are no longer there? O'BRIEN It's possible. WORF Why would the Dominion pull so many of their ships away from the border? GARAK Perhaps they've been sent to the Romulan front. WORF Then how many ships does the Dominion have at Chin'toka?
Dopo la riunione tra Klingon, Federali e Romulani, nella quale c'è l'alterco tra Martok e Letant, e prima della scena nella holosuite con Bashir, Quark e Vic Fontaine, era prevista la seguente scena:
21 INT. QUARK'S A glum-looking Odo sits beside an even glummer- looking Bashir, while a glummest-looking Quark commiserates from across the bar. ODO What am I going to do? Nerys hates me. BASHIR I envy you. At least hate is an emotion. All I get from Jadzia is indifference. QUARK Me, too. ODO (wistful) For one brief moment, I was the happiest man in the universe. Now... it's over. I'll never be happy again. BASHIR I know what you mean. QUARK Me, too. ODO What am I going to do without her? BASHIR (still thinking of Dax) I wish I knew. QUARK Me, too. With a sigh, Odo gets up from the stool. ODO I guess there's nothing else to do but go back to work. BASHIR Good idea. And with that, Odo EXITS. Bashir and Quark watch him leave. BASHIR I think we cheered him up. QUARK Me, too. (a beat) I wish there was someone to cheer us up. BASHIR (a sudden thought) I know just the person. And as Quark looks over at Bashir, we go to --
Nell'alloggio di Sisko, prima che Jake proponesse di partecipare all'attacco contro il Dominio, erano previsti questi dialoghi (in grigio le scene incluse nell'episodio):
24 INT. SISKO'S QUARTERS Jake is seated across from his father at the dinner table, taking a first bite of jambalaya. Jake closes his eyes, savoring the flavors, then finally swallows. SISKO What do you think? JAKE (smiling) I think the Romulans have agreed to invade Cardassia. SISKO How'd you know? JAKE The jambalaya's perfect. (off Sisko's look) When you're frustrated about something you usually overcook the rice. SISKO You never told me that before. JAKE I'm telling you now. So when do we leave?
