           DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - ADDENDUM SCENE 47           1.

	This is an ADDENDUM to Scene 47.

	It should be placed after the Pronunciation Guide in the 
	script.

	This is the dialogue Sisko is having with an Admiral on the 
	monitor in his office.  We neither hear the dialogue nor see 
	the Admiral on the monitor.

	We do see Sisko trying to keep his temper while emphatically 
	responding to the Admiral's heated inquiries.

	They are mid-conversation as the scene begins...

					SISKO
				(bristling)
			I'm hoping I don't have to remind 
			the admiral how many people pass 
			through here during a week's time.  
			It's not possible to keep tabs on 
			every single person while they're on 
			the station...

					ADMIRAL
				(hard)
			If I didn't know you better, 
			commander, I'd think you were just 
			making excuses...

					SISKO
				(heatedly)
			I'm not making excuses!  Would it be 
			in keeping with Federation policy to 
			frisk everyone who steps through our 
			airlocks?  To search every room of 
			every visitor during their stay?

					ADMIRAL
				(forcefully)
			Of course not... but with two 
			kidnappings and a ship being 
			destroyed... all in less than a 
			week's time... obviously your security 
			measures leave something to be 
			desired...

					SISKO
			Security on this station is by the 
			book.  Our security program and the 
			officers who work in it are first- 
			rate.

           DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - ADDENDUM SCENE 47           2.


CONTINUED:

					ADMIRAL
			Then what were they doing when all 
			this was happening?  We here at 
			Starfleet are watching how you resolve 
			this situation very closely, 
			commander.  We think it might be 
			prudent to replace this chief of 
			security you have...

					SISKO
			Odo is both highly intelligent and 
			extremely thorough.  He's the most 
			qualified person I have for the job.

					ADMIRAL
			Still, it would be a concrete example 
			that you are taking active measures 
			to resolve this situation... and to 
			make sure it doesn't happen again.

					SISKO
			I stand behind my chief of security 
			one hundred percent.

					ADMIRAL
				(with an edge)
			That may be a mistake, Commander...

					SISKO
				(controlled fury)
			Then it's my mistake.

					ADMIRAL
			Then let me make my point again.  
			Starfleet is very unhappy this has 
			happened.  We want this matter taken 
			care of immediately.  I don't have 
			to remind you how this reflects on 
			your position...

					SISKO
			We're doing everything we can to 
			apprehend the kidnappers...

					ADMIRAL
			Don't bother me with details.  Just 
			clean up the mess, Commander.  And 
			quickly.  Before this becomes a 
			permanent stain on your record.  
			Do I make myself clear?

CONTINUED:	(2)

					SISKO
				(angrily)
			Yes, sir.

	The Admiral's image disappears from the monitor.

	(Then we will pick up at "In his office, Sisko drops his 
	head... " in the script.)

1    EXT. SPACE - DEEP SPACE NINE (OPTICAL)

	A Cardassian freighter is docked at upper pylon one...

2    INT. AIRLOCK

	A Cardassian merchant marine-type officer stands just inside 
	the open door to the Cardassian freighter... Two more 
	Cardassians carry equipment into the ship as he makes routine 
	notes on a Cardassian PADD... he EXITS back into the ship... 
	BILL SAMUELS then ENTERS the airlock from the station... 
	Samuels wears a Starfleet work uniform and carries a 
	toolbox... glancing around to make sure he's alone, he pops 
	open a panel in the freighter's hull, begins studying the 
	space inside the panel...

3    INT. OPS

	KIRA and DAX work at their stations.  N.D. Supernumeraries 
	as needed.

					DAX
				(off console)
			The Cardassian freighter Bok'Nor 
			is requesting permission to depart 
			Upper Pylon One in three minutes...

	Kira checks a monitor display...

					KIRA
			We've got an incoming Bolian vessel 
			at coordinates one-zero-one mark 
			three-eight... give the Bok'Nor a 
			clear trajectory out of the traffic 
			pattern...

					DAX
			Acknowledged.

	Dax presses panels, signaling the freighter.

					KIRA
				(beat)
			Feel like getting together for dinner 
			tonight?

					DAX
			Can't.  I'm having dinner with Captain 
			Boday.

					KIRA
			The Gallamite?  You're going out on 
			a date with him?

					DAX
			Is something wrong with that?

					KIRA
				(it's no skin off her 
				nose)
			No... not at all...

					DAX
			He happens to be brilliant.  His 
			brain is twice the size of yours and 
			mine.

					KIRA
			I know...
				(with vague distaste)
			I've seen it.

					DAX
			It's not his fault Gallamites have 
			transparent skulls...

					KIRA
			No, it's not.  But it's not exactly 
			the view I want to have with dinner.

					DAX
				(beat)
			You know, Kira, sometimes I think 
			you place too much emphasis on how 
			men look.

					KIRA
			What's that supposed to mean?

					DAX
				(blithely)
			Nothing.

        DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/07/94 - TEASER         3.

3    CONTINUED:	(2)

					KIRA
			Look -- when I kiss a man goodnight, 
			I like to know where I'm kissing 
			him.

					DAX
				(wryly)
			I guess seven lifetimes gives me a 
			somewhat broader perspective...

					KIRA
			Since I have just one lifetime, I 
			have to be a little more particular 
			about whom I go out with...

					DAX
				(slightly indignant)
			I never said I wasn't particular...

					KIRA
			I'm not the one who dates Ferengis.

					DAX
			What's that supposed to mean?

					KIRA
				(blithely)
			Nothing.

	Dax would continue this little tete-a-tete, but she casually 
	notices a signal on her console.  She routinely presses 
	panels...

					DAX
			Releasing docking clamps at Upper 
			Pylon One.

	A raised eyebrow to her console...

					DAX
			That's funny... I'm picking up 
			elevated...

	And suddenly it's urgent... she interrupts herself, hitting 
	a comline with her palm...

					DAX
			Deep Space Nine to Bok'Nor... shut 
			down your engines... repeat shut 
			down your...

4    EXT. SPACE - DEEP SPACE NINE (OPTICAL)

	as the Cardassian freighter pulls back from the upper pylon 
	it was docked at, it EXPLODES... the hull obliterating... 
	shredded pieces flying out from a blinding white-hot center...

5    INT. OPS - KIRA AND DAX (CONTINUOUS)

	The station buffeted by the force of the explosion... Dax 
	and Kira almost thrown off their feet... stunned... Kira 
	scrambling back to her console...

					KIRA
			Report!

					DAX
			Some kind of impulse overload... 
			checking...

					KIRA
				(hitting com line)
			Ops to all engineering personnel... 
			report to rescue stations... we have 
			an S-I-D in progress...

	Dax is stunned by what she sees... looks at Kira... shakes 
	her head...

					DAX
			There's nothing left of it... there's 
			no one left to rescue...

	Kira reacts and...

6    EXT. SPACE - DEEP SPACE NINE (OPTICAL)

	returning to the last remnants of the last shot... pieces of 
	debris are all that's left of the Cardassian ship...

									FADE OUT.

7    EXT. SPACE - RUNABOUT (OPTICAL)

	The Runabout drifts slowly through shredded pieces of the 
	exploded freighter...

8    INT. RUNABOUT (VPB)

	Kira and O'BRIEN.  She's the pilot.  He sits, performing a 
	sensor analysis on the debris from the freighter.  Information 
	SCROLLS BY on his monitor...

					O'BRIEN
				(off monitor)
			Kelindide... rhodinium... nothing 
			unusual there... all materials 
			commonly used in Cardassian ship 
			construction...

	Kira is slightly defensive -- she doesn't want to hear the 
	Bajorans have blown up this Cardassian ship...

					KIRA
			Maybe it was a malfunction in the 
			impulse generator...

					O'BRIEN
			I'd like to be able to tell you that, 
			Major... but it's just too soon to 
			be sure...

					KIRA
			I can't believe the Cardassians have 
			waited this long for an official 
			explanation...

9    ANGLE (VPB)

	As SISKO'S image from Ops appears on the monitors, we hear 
	an accompanying BLEEP...

					SISKO
			Anything, Chief?

	O'Brien continues to check sensor readings as he talks...

        DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/07/94 - ACT ONE        6.

9    CONTINUED:

					O'BRIEN
			No sign of an explosive device yet, 
			sir...

					SISKO
			I've got every Admiral within subspace 
			range on my butt... can I at least 
			tell them it looks like an 
			accident... ?

	O'Brien doesn't care who's pressing him for answers... he's 
	got a job to do and he's going to do it...

					O'BRIEN
			Well, I wouldn't do that quite yet, 
			sir...

					SISKO
			When.

					O'BRIEN
			I'll let you know.

									INTERCUT:

10   INT. OPS (OPTICAL)

	Sisko frowns.  ODO and Dax are with Sisko in Ops.  Dax is 
	working at her station... studying monitors, reports from 
	the explosion...

					KIRA
			Anything from the Cardassians yet, 
			Commander?

					SISKO
			Not a word.

					ODO
			All Bajoran outposts have been put 
			on alert for retaliatory strikes. 
			The provisional government has made 
			a statement disavowing any 
			responsibility.

					KIRA
			Maybe it really was an accident.  I 
			mean, it is possible.

        DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/07/94 - ACT ONE        7.

10   CONTINUED:

					ODO
				(skeptical)
			An "accident" involving a Cardassian 
			ship in Bajoran space... if I were a 
			Cardassian, I wouldn't easily 
			accept...

					O'BRIEN
				(overlapping, off 
				sensors)
			Hmmm, that's odd...

					SISKO
			What?

					O'BRIEN
			I'm picking up traces of a mercassium 
			compound.

					DAX
				(reacts)
			Mercassium?  There shouldn't have 
			been any mercassium on board that 
			ship...

					O'BRIEN
			Well, there was...

					SISKO
			Meaning... ?

					O'BRIEN
			I'm not sure yet.

	This adds to everyone's impatience.

					ODO
			Is mercassium some kind of explosive?

					SISKO
			No, it's a synthetic composite used 
			in shield generator construction by 
			the Federation.  We don't share that 
			technology with anyone.

	Dax has found something conclusive on her console...

					DAX
			Chief, I don't think you're going to 
			find evidence of an explosive 
			device...

        DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/07/94 - ACT ONE        8.

10   CONTINUED:	(2)

					O'BRIEN
				(sighs)
			Lieutenant, respectfully, these kinds 
			of things take time and I've got 
			to...

					DAX
				(overlapping)
			I don't think you're going to find 
			an explosive device because I'm pretty 
			sure it was an implosive proto-matter 
			device... designed to match the 
			impulse signature...

	Reactions.  Sisko and Odo move to Dax for a closer look at 
	her console...

					DAX
			Just before the explosion, I picked 
			up a sudden increase in their fusion 
			rate... I've been trying to find any 
			sign of a malfunction in the Bok'Nor's 
			engines to explain it... but there 
			just isn't one.  This doesn't look 
			like an accident... The fusion shock 
			had to be caused by something external 
			to the impulse drive system...

					O'BRIEN
				(agrees)
			If a proto-matter device was attached 
			to the crossfeeds, it could have 
			created the overload... and we'd 
			never see any sign of it...

	A beat.  This is bad news.  Sisko digests it.

					SISKO
			Can you prove that's what happened?

					O'BRIEN
			Maybe... if we could get a high 
			resolution spectra of the impulse 
			debris... but that's gonna take 
			some...

					SISKO
			... time, yes, I know.  Get it started.  
			I'll tell the Admirals.  Sisko out.

	In the background, Starfleet LIEUTENANT COMMANDER CALVIN 
	"CAL" HUDSON arrives on the Turbolift... Hudson is 
	approximately Sisko's age... they shake hands... they are 
	very old friends... Odo stays with Dax as Sisko moves to 
	greet Hudson...

					HUDSON
				(half-smile)
			Benjamin...

					SISKO
			Hello, Cal, thanks for coming on 
			such short notice.

					HUDSON
			I wish it didn't take a disaster 
			like this to get us back together.

					DAX
			Hi, Calvin...

	Hudson glances at Dax, doesn't recognize her...

					SISKO
			Jadzia Dax...

	Now Cal gets it... smiles...

					HUDSON
			Dax!  My gosh... I can't believe... 
			boy, you look a lot better than the 
			last time I saw you.

	Odo is the odd man out here so Sisko helps...

					SISKO
			Security Chief Odo... Lieutenant 
			Commander Calvin Hudson... Starfleet's 
			attache to the Federation colonies 
			in the new Demilitarized Zone...

	Odo reacts with interest...

					ODO
			You must be concerned about the 
			colonies' security at a time like 
			this...

					ODO
			Neither have we.  That's what's got

			Come on into my office.

	Smiling back to Dax --

					HUDSON
			I don't have time this trip.  But 
			we've got a few stories to catch up 
			on, Lieutenant.

					DAX
				(smiles, nods)
			Next time.

11   INT. COMMANDER'S OFFICE - CONTINUOUS

					HUDSON
				(chuckles)
			That woman knows more about me than 
			any woman has ever known... even 
			more than my wife did...

					SISKO
				(me too)
			Tell me about it.

					HUDSON
			Don't you find it a little... 
			uncomfortable?

					SISKO
				(shrugs, casual)
			She's a good officer.

					HUDSON
			Yeah, but Curzon was...

					SISKO
				(smiles)
			She's not Curzon.

					HUDSON
				(beat, realizing maybe 
				they're involved)
			You're not...

			No.  She may not be Curzon.  But she

					HUDSON
			That would be extremely... strange...

	Sisko nods.

					HUDSON
			So, how's Jake?

					SISKO
			As tall as me.

					HUDSON
			No.

					SISKO
			And he throws inside to back his old

					HUDSON
			A little chin music, huh?

			He's growing up too fast.

					HUDSON
			It must've been tough for you.  At

					SISKO
			Well, we kind of helped each other 
			through it.

	A beat as Hudson nods and Sisko sees that Hudson is still 
	learning to cope with the loss of his wife...

					SISKO
			When I heard about Gretchen, I wanted 
			to be there for you.  There was just 
			no way to get back...

					HUDSON
				(appreciative)
			I know that.

			Who's got R&R time?

					HUDSON
				(nods in agreement)
			You can't imagine what my life's

			abandoned these colonies...

					SISKO
				(reacts)
			Abandoned them?  Doesn't your presence 
			there...

					HUDSON
				(interrupting)
			My presence there is a joke.  I'm 
			supposed to help these colonies 
			function under the terms of the new 
			treaty -- what the hell does that 
			mean?

					SISKO
			I thought these colonists wanted to 
			stay... that they refused to be 
			evacuated.

					HUDSON
				(shrugs, what else 
				could they do?)
			The treaty gave away their territory 
			to the Cardassians... territory these 
			people had invested their lives in... 
			if you knew them like I do, Ben, 
			you'd understand why they couldn't 
			leave.  It's a bad treaty.  The 
			Federation gave away too much.

					SISKO
			Several Cardassian colonies wanted 
			to stay on the Federation side of 
			the Zone too... it seemed like a 
			reasonable compromise...

					HUDSON
			The Cardassians were delighted to 
			keep their colonies in our territory.  
			Because they knew we'd protect them.  
			But they're not about to do the same 
			for ours.

	Sisko frowns at the dire prediction...

11   CONTINUED:	(3)

					SISKO
			A number of Admirals at Starfleet 
			Command are worried the destruction 

			of the Bok'Nor might jeopardize the 
			treaty.

					HUDSON
				(a critical grin, 
				shakes his head)
			Are they really?

					SISKO
			As the two ranking officers along 
			the Cardassian border, we've been 
			asked to assess the potential risk...

					HUDSON
			There is no risk, Ben.  None.  I've 
			been dealing with the Cardassians 
			for most of my professional life.  
			Believe me, the Cardassians are very 
			happy with what they got out of this 
			treaty.  They're not going to risk 
			losing all they've gained by sending 
			forces into the Zone.  They're much 
			too slick for that.  If I were you, 
			I'd be more concerned about security 
			along the Bajoran border...

					SISKO
				(considers that a 
				beat)
			Are you surprised that they haven't 
			responded at all yet?

					HUDSON
			You know as well as I do they never 
			let you see what you expect to see.  
			They'll respond.

	As Sisko considers that...

	In appropriate spy fashion he doesn't acknowledge, and she 
	moves away toward Quark's.  A beat later, he moves away from 
	the window.  Two aliens from the same species, one male and 
	one sexy female, stand nearby (among a small crowd of people) 
	glance over in Samuels's direction... after a beat, begin to 
	casually follow him...

13   INT. QUARK'S

	There's a moderate crowd, feisty, enjoying themselves... 
	Sakonna, being a Vulcan, seems relatively immune to the 
	festive cries of "Dabo!" that pierce the air... sizing the 
	place up unemotionally, she then moves to the bar...

14   AT THE BAR

	QUARK is counting pieces of latinum, delighted with a good

			What can I get you?

					SAKONNA
			You are Quark, aren't you...

	Reacts, looks up at stern voice...

					QUARK

			You are counting your receipts.  It

					QUARK
			You're... very observant.  What can 
			I do for you?

	Sakonna glances to see no one is within earshot.

					SAKONNA
			I was hoping to discuss a business 
			proposition.

					QUARK
				(perks up, immediately)
			With me?  Uh, perhaps I should 
			explain about that slip-of-the-
			tongue....

					SAKONNA
			Your past is of no consequence to

					QUARK
			I'm... delighted to hear you say

					SAKONNA
			Sakonna.

					QUARK
			Sakonna.  Such a handsome name... 
			for such a handsome young woman...

	He smiles his best smile, gets nothing back except a 
	classically raised Vulcan eyebrow.

					QUARK
			What'll you have to drink... wait a 
			minute, I have just the thing...

	He goes to the liquor display for a dusty old, elegantly 
	shaped bottle...

			Vulcan port.  Three centuries old.  
			Very rare.  Very expensive.  Shall I 
			pour you a glass... ?

					SAKONNA
			No.

					QUARK
			Not even a taste?  It's exquisite...

					SAKONNA
			I'm not thirsty.  Thus I see no reason 
			to have a drink.

	Quark's smile never wavers... he sets the bottle back in its 
	place...

					QUARK
			Well... it'll be right here... should 
			you develop a thirst.  Now -- you 
			mentioned a business proposition?

					SAKONNA
			It is a private matter.  I'd rather 
			not discuss it here.

					QUARK
			Then we can discuss it over dinner... 
			that is we can plan the business 
			meeting to coincide with when you 
			think you might get hungry.

					SAKONNA
			That would be acceptable.

					QUARK
			That would be wonderful!  How does 
			eight sound to your tummy?

					SAKONNA
			I will return then.

	She leaves.  He studies her with appreciation, sighs.

			And by the way, I'd love to melt

15   INT. HABITAT CORRIDOR

	Bill Samuels walks up the corridor.  Casually following a 
	few meters behind him is the male alien we saw in the 
	promenade.  Approaching Samuels from the opposite direction 
	is his female companion.  She's rummaging through a medium-
	sized pouch-like purse.  Samuels takes her in with quiet 
	appreciation.

	As they start to pass, the purse accidentally slips out of 
	the female alien's hands.  Samuels picks it up for her, holds 
	it out with a smile.  The female alien smiles back, 
	grateful...

	As Samuels is handing her the purse, the male alien starts 
	to pass behind him.  The male alien suddenly renders Samuels 
	unconscious with a hypospray.  Together the male and female 
	alien drag Samuels back to one of the private quarters.  The 
	female alien looks up and down the corridor, is satisfied no 
	one has seen them.  She steps into the quarters and the door 
	CLOSES after her...

	holding all the cards and is enjoying playing them one at a 
	time... he's the least formal we've ever seen him... which, 
	being a Cardassian, means he's still pretty formal...

					GUL DUKAT
			You have a problem.

			The Bok'Nor.

			On the contrary -- Central Command

			It's true.  I'm here unofficially...

					SISKO
			I'm supposed to take your word for

					GUL DUKAT
			Of course not.  It's my job to

					GUL DUKAT
			I notice my controls are not

					GUL DUKAT
			Commander, I'm not going to sit here

					GUL DUKAT
				(belittling him)
			Ah, so you turn off my controls so I

			Yes, yes... every Ferengi business 
			transaction is governed by two hundred 
			eighty-five Rules of Acquisition... 
			to insure a fair and honest deal for 
			all parties concerned... well, most 
			of them anyway...

					SAKONNA
			Commendable.  To create a code of

			is...

					QUARK
				(pleased to offer)
			... it's logical...

					SAKONNA
			... and quite reassuring.

	Quark pours the wine...

					QUARK
			Do the Vulcans have anything similar?

					SAKONNA
			In structure, it reminds one of the 
			Vulcan Bill of Rights which guarantees 
			the fundamental personal freedoms of

					QUARK
			Same thing exactly.  May I propose a

					SAKONNA
			Is this another cultural idiosyncrasy?

			Yes.

			You know I can't describe the honor

			I've always had the greatest respect

			Now then, what kind of business

			You're a gun runner?

	territory on Volan Three...

33   INT. VOLAN COLONY MEETING HOUSE - DAY

	As Sisko and Dukat ENTER, Cal Hudson and five colonists stand 
	talking to an angry GUL EVEK (NOTE: Evek is a character 
	originally created in TNG's episode, "Journey's End").  He 
	is Hudson's Cardassian counterpart.  Hudson is tough but 
	diplomatic, doesn't back down.  Two of the Federation settlers 
	are more confrontational.  One is a woman: KOBB.  Another is 
	AMAROS, an earnest, hardworking man.  Of the three remaining 
	settlers, one is a male Vulcan, one is an N.D. Federation 
	alien and one is a 24th century American Indian.  One 
	Cardassian colonist with a PADD is watching from nearby.  
	Picking up in mid-argument...

					GUL EVEK
			The Federation merchant ship refused 
			to be boarded!

					AMAROS
			So, your ships just decided to open 
			fire...

					GUL EVEK
			It was clear the Federation ship was 
			carrying weapons through the 
			Demilitarized Zone...

					HUDSON
				(weary)
			That ship was carrying medical 
			supplies to Soltok Four...

	They see the new guests arriving...

					HUDSON
			Ben, what are you doing here?

	Sisko is measuring the situation...

					SISKO
				(evenly)
			I'm not sure yet.  Gul Dukat asked 
			me to accompany him.

	Evek has no love for Dukat.

       DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/07/94 - ACT THREE      34.

33   CONTINUED:

					GUL EVEK
			Dukat.  No one informed us that you 
			were coming.

					GUL DUKAT
			I decided an impromptu visit would 
			be preferable... so you wouldn't be 
			bothered with special preparations...

					GUL EVEK
				(cool)
			I see.

					HUDSON
			Commander Sisko, do you know my 
			counterpart in the colonies, Gul 
			Evek?

	Sisko nods to him.

					GUL EVEK
				(to Sisko)
			I'm glad you're here to listen to 
			this, Commander.

					SISKO
			We monitored the attack on our way 
			in...

					GUL DUKAT
			Yes, "monitor" is the proper word 
			because none of the ships would 
			respond to our hails... the Cardassian 
			pilots even refused to acknowledge 
			me.

					GUL EVEK
				(an excuse)
			A strange voice from a Federation 
			runabout...

					GUL DUKAT
			I gave them my security 
			identification.

					GUL EVEK
			Well, obviously they had their hands 
			full...

					KOBB
			With an unprovoked attack.

       DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/10/94 - ACT THREE      35.

33   CONTINUED:	(2)

					GUL EVEK
				(smug)
			"Unprovoked," was it?  Do you deny 
			that the Federation is engaging in 
			organized terrorist activities against 
			the Cardassian people?  Deliberately 
			attempting to undermine this treaty?

					SISKO
			The Federation does not conduct secret 
			wars.

					GUL EVEK
			Perhaps, then you can explain where 
			the Federation ship came from, the 
			one that was outfitted with photon 
			torpedoes... ?

	Sisko looks at Hudson who shakes his head, doesn't know 
	either... but throws it back at Evek...

					HUDSON
			How about explaining why your ships 
			were armed with Galor-class phaser 
			banks?

					GUL EVEK
			They have the right to defend 
			themselves against these organized 
			terrorist activities.

					SISKO
			I haven't heard any proof yet of 
			"organized terrorist activities"...

					AMAROS
			Because there is none.

	Evek exchanges a glance with Dukat... Dukat knows what's 
	coming...

					GUL EVEK
			On the contrary, we have the 
			confession of the Federation terrorist 
			responsible for the destruction of 
			the Bok'Nor at your station, 
			Commander...

	A slow push into Sisko as the impact hits him...

       DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/10/94 - ACT THREE      36.

33   CONTINUED:	(3)

					SISKO
			Confession?

	The Cardassian colonist hands Evek the PADD... as he reads...

					GUL EVEK
				(reading)
			A forty-three-year-old male human, 
			William Patrick Samuels, born Bergan, 
			Norway, Earth...

					AMAROS
			We know who he is... what have you 
			done with him...

					GUL EVEK
				(continuing, ignoring 
				the question)
			... came to the Federation colony on 
			Volan Two twenty years ago... married, 
			wife's name Louise, two female 
			children aged fourteen and twelve.  
			He was quite cooperative once we 
			apprehended him from Deep Space 
			Nine...

	Sisko, who is getting caught flat footed on all of this, 
	glances at Dukat who chooses not to make eye contact... Evek 
	nods to the Cardassian colonist, who then hands a data clip 
	to Amaros... Amaros inserts the data clip into a console...

34   ON DESKTOP MONITORS (OPTICAL)

	Samuels speaks in a medium closeup... he has been washed up 
	for this video, looks fine at first glance but his eyes are 
	dead and he has the pallid expression of a prisoner of war 
	who has been tortured.  He reads from a statement.

					SAMUELS
			My name is William Samuels.  I am 
			being held for crimes against the 
			Cardassian people.  I have been well 
			treated.  I have confessed that, as 
			a member of a well-armed anti-
			Cardassian force organized by 
			Federation colonists, I set an 
			implosion device that destroyed the 
			freighter Bok'Nor.  I deeply regret 
			participating in this arbitrary attack 
			that led to the deaths of over seventy-
			five crewmen.

					SAMUELS (Cont'd)
			To my wife and children, I'm sorry 
			and I love you.

	The confession ends...

35   RESUME

					HUDSON
			We'll want to talk to him ourselves.  
			You'll make him available, of 
			course...

	Evek hits a combadge...

					GUL EVEK
				(to com)
			Bring him in.

					AMAROS
			He would have confessed to anything 
			after you were through with him...

					GUL EVEK
			On the contrary, he confessed quite 
			early in the interrogation 
			procedure... far sooner than we 
			expected.  I believe he truly felt 
			remorse.

	Two Cardassians ENTER carrying a body bag on a stretcher...

					GUL EVEK
			Unfortunately, he committed suicide 
			in his cell.

	Reactions.  Sisko zips back the top of the body bag and 
	reveals the dead face of the man we just saw on the recording.  
	Amaros suddenly explodes, charges Evek and grabs him with 
	two hands at his throat, choking him... Evek falls backward, 
	Amaros goes down on top of him... Hudson moves in first as 
	everyone pulls them apart... finally, they succeed... but it 
	seems like a war might break out in this room... the 
	Cardassians and Federation colonists look at each other with 
	bitter hatred.

					SISKO
				(to Dukat, re:

			Get them out of here.

	Dukat acknowledges... as Hudson coaxes the colonists out 
	another door... two of them take the body with them...

					HUDSON
			We'll talk later...

					KOBB
			... We can't let them get away with 
			this...

					HUDSON
			... We'll talk later... go on now...

	And they're out.  Sisko and Hudson are alone... as they

	Except for Sisko and Hudson, the council chamber is now 
	deserted... the quiet in the large room now echoes the 
	loneliness of these two men's positions... Hudson paces 
	slowly, quietly bitter...

					HUDSON
			I knew him... Bill Samuels was a 
			farmer... he cultivated his land for 
			twenty years... raised two kids on 
			that land... he made something out 
			of that land... and the Federation 
			told him he had to give it all to 
			the Cardassians... well, he wasn't 
			willing to do it...

					SISKO
				(arguing the Federation 
				position)
			And it was people like him who made 
			both sides realize that some 
			accommodation had to be made for 
			these colonies... so they could 
			stay...

					HUDSON
			The Cardassians have no intention of 
			letting these people stay, Ben... 
			they'll drive them out or kill them... 
			it's already started... not a day 
			goes by without some random act of 
			violence against our people.  Every

			go out alone at night... can you 
			imagine living in that kind of 
			fear... ?

					SISKO
			If you're saying the Cardassian 
			authorities are not enforcing the 
			laws, we can...

					HUDSON
				(overlapping)
			Enforcing the laws?  The Cardassian 
			"authorities" were part of a mob 
			that stoned two of our colonists on

			ago...

					SISKO
			That's something the Federation can 
			take up with the Cardassians at the 
			highest levels...

					HUDSON
				(shakes his head, 
				sarcastic)
			I'm sure that'll help.  The word is 
			the Cardassian High Command is arming 
			their colonists to the teeth...

					SISKO
			You really think they'd risk sending 
			weapons into the Demilitarized Zone 
			and breaking the treaty...

					HUDSON
			I think they'd find a way to do it 
			that wouldn't be so obvious...

	Sisko thinks a moment, nods...

					SISKO
			Not long ago, we caught the 
			Cardassians shipping weapons to 
			Bajoran extremists through a third 
			party -- the Yridians...

					HUDSON
			That sounds about right.
				(beat)
			Could the Bok'Nor have been 
			transferring weapons to someone else 
			to bring in here?

					SISKO
			If it was, the transfer was made

					SISKO
			I don't think Dukat would drag me

			could prove this...

					HUDSON
			Then, maybe Bill did do it, I don't 
			know.
				(beat)
			Damn... I gotta go see his wife...

	He sighs, smiles sadly to Sisko...

					HUDSON
			Makes you kind of pine for the dull

			Jennifer and Gretchen had a ball

					HUDSON
			I'll never forget the sight of you 
			in those lederhosen.

					SISKO
			I still have the hat.

	Hudson tries a laugh, it doesn't quite make it.  A long beat.

			either... perhaps by arming these 
			colonists...

					KIRA
			I can't answer that, Commander.  But 
			I can tell you one thing for certain -- 
			the Cardassians are the enemy, not 
			your own colonists.  And if Starfleet 
			doesn't understand that, then the 
			Federation is more naive than I 
			already think it is.

	She EXITS, leaving Sisko with his thoughts...

44   INT. HABITAT CORRIDOR

	A Starfleet Security Officer (N.D.), standing guard outside 
	one of the closed doors... Sakonna and an N.D. Security 
	officer (NILES) approach the guard... Niles will position 
	himself so the guard turns away from Sakonna...

					NILES
				(to guard)
			I've been sent to relieve you...

					GUARD
				(confused)
			There must be some mistake.  I just 
			reported for duty an hour...

	As the Guard looks at Niles, Sakonna renders him unconscious 
	with a NECK PINCH.  Niles catches him, drags the guard away 
	(O.S.)... Sakonna hits the bell and in the time, it takes 
	Dukat to answer, Niles returns.  Through the door --

44   CONTINUED:

					GUL DUKAT (O.S.)
			Yes?

					NILES
				(pretending he's now 
				Dukat's guard)
			Sorry to disturb you, sir, but there's 
			a message here from Commander Sisko...

	A beat, then the door OPENS... Gul Dukat looks out on his 
	two visitors.

       DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/14/94 - ACT FOUR       48.

44   CONTINUED:

					SAKONNA
			We've been asked to escort you to 
			Airlock Eleven, sir.

					GUL DUKAT
			Is there a problem?

					NILES
			A Cardassian freighter has just 
			arrived.  Apparently another bomb 
			has been found and disarmed.

	Dukat reacts and follows them...

45   INT. AIRLOCK CORRIDOR (OPTICAL)

	The airlock seems deserted... Sakonna, Dukat and Niles ENTER 
	from the station... Dukat looks into the airlock, doesn't 
	see Sisko...

					GUL DUKAT
			Where's Commander Sisko?

					AMAROS'S VOICE
				(from behind Dukat)
			Comfortably asleep in his quarters, 
			I hope.

	Dukat turns... REVEAL Amaros, one of the Federation delegates 
	from Volan Three, as he steps out of the shadows with an 
	N.D. Federation Settler...

					AMAROS
			Remember me?

	Amaros stands in front of Dukat... Sakonna, Niles and the 
	N.D. Federation settler now surround him... Dukat realizes 
	what is happening...

					GUL DUKAT
				(nods at airlock)
			I take it we're not about to board a 
			Cardassian freighter...

	Amaros nods to his colleagues who take firm hold of Dukat... 
	but suddenly Dukat knocks two of them to the ground as he 
	makes one quick attempt to escape... Niles fires his PHASER, 
	hitting Dukat in the torso... Dukat crumbles.  Niles and the 
	N.D. Settler quickly drag him aboard... Sakonna follows... 
	Amaros brings up the rear, looking to make sure no one has 
	witnessed this abduction... he EXITS into the airlock... the 
	airlock CLOSES...

									FADE OUT.

46   EXT. SPACE - DEEP SPACE NINE (OPTICAL)

	Re-Establishing.

47   INT. OPS

	All senior officers (including BASHIR) are waiting at the 
	table for Sisko who can be seen in his office but not heard 
	talking intensely to his monitor... he's angry, defensive, 
	arguing, defending, nodding, shaking his head... As they 
	watch this --

					BASHIR
			What do you think they're telling 
			him...

					KIRA
				(dry, worried for 
				Sisko)
			With two kidnappings and a ship 
			exploding in the course of a week, 
			I'm sure they've got a few things to 
			say...

					ODO
			It's their own fault... I've been 
			warning them from the beginning...

	That rubs O'Brien the wrong way...

					O'BRIEN
			What are you talking about, their 
			fault... you're in charge of 
			Security...

	And Odo's right back in his face now...

					ODO
			You let me be in charge of Security 
			and I'll give you a safe station.  
			You people tell me to do my job and 
			then give me a Federation rulebook 
			on all the things I can't do.  Untie 
			my hands before you start to blame 
			me, Mister O'Brien...

					DAX
			I'm sure no one meant to blame you, 
			Odo...

       DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/07/94 - ACT FIVE       50.

47   CONTINUED:

					ODO
				(ignoring her, full 
				of steam)
			Give me the right to set a curfew, 
			let me do more searches of arriving 
			passengers, give me fifty more 
			deputies...

					KIRA
			And this station will be just like 
			it was during the occupation...

					ODO
			Say what you will, it was safer then.

					KIRA
			Unless you happened to be a Bajoran.

	In his office, Sisko drops his head as the command 
	transmission has ended.  He tries to control his fury, but 
	can't.  He calmly picks up the monitor, lifts it over his 
	head and slams it to the floor in frustration... the officers 
	react... he comes out, boiling but controlled...

					SISKO
			I want a complete review of all 
			security measures on board this 
			station.

					ODO
			I'd be delighted to accommodate you.

					SISKO
			What do we have from the guard?

					KIRA
			He's given us descriptions of the 
			two who assaulted him -- a Vulcan 
			female and a human male in a Starfleet 
			officer's uniform...

					ODO
			We're trying to locate anyone they 
			might have contacted here...

					SISKO
			How many ships left the station during 
			the night?

       DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/07/94 - ACT FIVE       51.

47   CONTINUED:	(2)

					O'BRIEN
			Only two, sir:  a Bardeezan merchant 
			ship... and a Galador freighter ...

					SISKO
			What were their destinations?

					O'BRIEN
			The Bardeezans went through the 
			wormhole.  The freighter is operating 
			on a trade route between Galador Two 
			and Farius Prime.

					SISKO
				(muses, then... )
			I'm guessing these people wouldn't 
			take Dukat through the wormhole... 
			they'd head back to the Demilitarized 
			Zone with him.  Dax, check the Galador 
			ship's registry and make sure it's 
			in order.  Chief, see if you can 
			identify its warp signature from our 
			sensor records...

	Dax and O'Brien work their panels...

					O'BRIEN
			No problem, Commander... I've got 
			it...

					SISKO
			Last known course?

					O'BRIEN
				(beat; checking)
			The computer's showing it was on a 
			bearing of two-one-six, mark one-
			seven-seven... as it went out of our 
			sensor range, it was still headed 
			for Farius Prime...

	Sisko considers that a beat, then shakes his head...

					SISKO
			Major, send a message to Farius 
			Prime... if that ship shows up, and 
			I doubt it will, I want to know about 
			it right away.

					O'BRIEN
			I can send out the warp signature 
			over subspace.

       DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/14/94 - ACT FIVE       52.

47   CONTINUED:	(3)

					O'BRIEN
			Make it a general transmission.  If 
			they did change course, someone might 
			spot them...

					SISKO
			Do it.

	Dax reacts as she finds something...

					DAX
			It's a phony.

	Reactions... Sisko moves to her station...

					DAX
			The Galadorans don't have any ships 
			in this sector... the registry is 
			forged...

	That's enough for Sisko...

					SISKO
			Doctor, Major, you're with me... 
			Odo, send a message to Commander 
			Hudson at the Volan Colony that I'm 
			moving in his direction on the 
			assumption that Dukat will be taken 
			to the Demilitarized Zone... give 
			him the warp signature of the ship...

	Sisko is ready to leave but Kira is picking up something on 
	her console...

					KIRA
			Commander, we've just received a 
			general subspace transmission from 
			somewhere in the Demilitarized Zone.  
			A group there is taking credit for 
			the kidnapping of Dukat.  They're 
			calling themselves... the Maquis.

	Off reactions...

48   EXT. SPACE - DEEP SPACE NINE (OPTICAL)

	as a Runabout departs, speeding away from the station...

       DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/07/94 - ACT FIVE       53.

49   INT. RUNABOUT (OPTICAL)

	At warp.  Kira pilots.  Sisko sits next to her.  Bashir sits 
	in one of the other chairs... a bleep and O'Brien's face 
	appears on the monitor...

					O'BRIEN
			Commander, a Klingon freighter two 
			light years from the Demilitarized 
			Zone has I.D.'ed the warp signature... 
			the ship did change course just as 
			you predicted...

					SISKO
			Transmit their last known coordinates 
			and heading to us, Chief...

	On the monitor, we see O'Brien work his console... a beat...

					KIRA
				(eyeing console)
			Acknowledged.

					SISKO
			Let us know if anyone else picks up 
			their signature.

					O'BRIEN
			Aye, sir.  O'Brien out.

					SISKO
				(to Kira)
			Set a new course, Major.

					KIRA
			Yes, sir.
				(glances up)
			Their heading would take them into 
			the Badlands...

					BASHIR
			Badlands?

					KIRA
			A stretch along the Cardassian border 
			that ships try to stay away from... 
			a lot of plasma storms in the area...

					SISKO
			A couple of ships have been lost 
			there over the past year or two...

       DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/07/94 - ACT FIVE       54.

49   CONTINUED:

					BASHIR
				(grim smile)
			Sounds like the perfect place for a 
			hideout...
				(beat)
			Excuse me, sir -- but what do you 
			plan to do if we catch up with them?  
			After all, these Maquis are Federation 
			colonists...

					SISKO
			We're going to get Gul Dukat back by 
			any means necessary.

					BASHIR
			Even if we have to fire on our own 
			people...

	Sisko's determined expression says yes.

					KIRA
			Long range sensors are picking up 
			the warp signature... it leads to an 
			M-class asteroid...

					SISKO
			Take us there.

50   EXT. SPACE - RUNABOUT (OPTICAL)

	traveling through a plasma storm... it approaches a large 
	asteroid...

51   INT. RUNABOUT

	As before.  Kira presses panels...

					KIRA
			Scanning the surface... I've located 
			the ship...

					BASHIR
				(reading monitors)
			Those are human life signs...

					SISKO
			Is there a Cardassian among them?

       DEEP SPACE: "The Maquis, I" - REV. 02/07/94 - ACT FIVE       55.

51   CONTINUED:

					BASHIR
				(checks)
			No, sir...

	Sisko reacts unhappily... but he's still determined...

					SISKO
				(to Kira and Bashir)
			Prepare to beam down...

52   EXT. JUNGLE - DAY (OPTICAL)

	Sisko, Kira and Bashir TRANSPORT into the scene, phasers 
	ready... widen to show a small temporary camp near a 
	cliffside... inside the camp stand a half-dozen Federation 
	colonists (including Niles, the settler who masqueraded as 
	the Starfleet Security Officer back on DS9, and the American 
	Indian we saw earlier at the Volan Colony Meeting House).  
	All hold phaser rifles, the rifles aimed at Sisko, Kira and 
	Bashir...

					HUDSON (O.S.)
				(with friendly regret)
			I'm glad to see you didn't have too 
			much trouble finding us, Ben...

	He moves into their view and signals to the others to disarm 
	the officers... they do... Sisko offers no resistance...

					HUDSON
			It seems that one disaster after 
			another keeps bringing us back 
			together again.

	Hold on Sisko's reaction...

                        TO BE CONTINUED
