In Quark's the mood is subdued. There are several tables full of Klingons scattered around the room. But the Klingons are uncharacteristically somber. They're stone-faced and serious, talking quietly among themselves, and carefully watching the room. Quark is behind the counter, surveying his domain with a frown. A quiet bar is an unprofitable bar.

Bashir and O'Brien are seated at a table. While Bashir watches, O'Brien places a Gramillion sand pea on the back of his hand, then slaps his wrist, catapulting the sand pea into the air and catching it in his mouth as Commander Halliwell walks over to them and has a drink with them.

So Commander what's the word on these Klingons how are they going to be here? O'Brien says as he looks at him.

Commander Halliwell looks at him.

I don't know, Miles says Typhuss as he looks at Miles.

Julian looks at him.

Commander Halliwell looks at him.

My guess is the Dominion says Typhuss as he looks at Julian.

Miles looks at him.

Maybe or just to brag about his new flagship being tougher then any Federation vessel we've got Miles says as he looks at both Typhuss and Julian.

Typhuss snickers a bit.

In the wardroom General Martok, Captain Martin, and Major Kira are having a meeting about the Dominion.

So General what brings you out here in these neck of the woods, I thought Gowron was keeping the Klingon fleet along the border to prep for an invasion of the Dominion? Captain Martin asked as he looks at Martok.

Martok turns to him.

A valid question but first let us be sure we are who we say we are General Martok says as he drew his dagger and cut his hand and let's the blood drip on the table and hands it to Captain Martin.

Kira looks at him.

You think we're changelings? Kira asked as she looks at the General.

Martok looks at her.

What I think doesn't matter the blood will tell  Martok says as he looks at Kira.

Captain Martin looks at the dagger.

I'm not afraid and if you need a blood sample I'll give you a blood sample Captain Martin says as he also cuts his hand and let's the blood drip on the table.

He hands to dagger to Kira.

All right if you want me to prove that I'm not a changling here Kira says as she cuts her hand as well.

The blood drips from her hand as well and Martok takes out a scanner and scans it and it's regular blood no signs of Changling DNA, Captain Martin looks at him.

Now that you've got your samples now tell me why is there a Klingon attack fleet in the Bajoran sector? Captain Martin asked as he looks at Martok.

General Martok looks at him.

We've been sent here to fight alongside our Federation allies against the Dominion General Martok says as he looks at both Captain Martin and Major Kira.

Captain Martin relaxes a little. Though the Klingon presence is unexpected, he understands their reasoning.
