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

If we were talking canon I would agree with you, but this seems like an obvious hint being dropped and Dax was on that ship at that time. "Old Man" was constantly used by Sisko when referring to Dax, and although I don't think it would be Ezri, with the CBS connection, it may have to be if they don't want Ezri killed off for a new symbiote.

Based solely on my gut feeling and Cryptic's past hints, my money is on Dax.
