So this referance must be to some one else. The ones in the Defiant in the episode "sacrifice of angels" and the fact that the guy's in Starfleet Core of Engineers makes O'Brian the most likely candidate.

Dax is certainly not the one being referred to
I completely agree,

C'thal could also be referring to their father or grandfather "Old Man" is a common term to refer to ones father/grandfather.
