Hehe, aside from the "Old Man' question, I called this plot back in December. Still no security grind placed at the wormhole though...

What I find interesting about this fiction snippet is the reminder that while for us, the source of "the 2800" and the details of Operation Return - including things that only the Dominion side, or the Sisko, could know - are fresh in fannish memory or require only a visit to the Memory Alpha wiki or the DVDs, for the people in-universe, it's on the far side of 35 years of history and other wars. Aside from it being the Bicentennial, how much do you remember about 1976?

("Sacrifice of Angels", the episode in question, is less than half that far back - it aired in late 1997, only 14 years ago.)

Then why not simply mention O'Brien by name? He wouldn't appear in-game anyway because of likeness issues, so why the nebulous reference?

To ramp up the tension of course, jeez.

Gives us one more thing to worry about, like why doesnīt anybody reinforce DS9īs forces?

Didnīt they watch the trailer!?!

Don't think it would be Dax. Sisko was the only one that referred to him/her as 'old man'.
Can't wait to find out who though!

When I read 'The Old Man', I had to glance back to top for who logged the report. My first thought was Jake Sisko referring to his father. I agree it more likely refers to Mile O'Brien.

When others suggested Dax, my mind went straight to our resident Ezri and Vesta-class haters who would be embittered if both made an appearance by the end of this story arc. :p Would have been fun around these forums, I'll tell ya.

I sincerely doubt that anyone would refer to Ezri as a "he"

The "old man" could be anyone. It does sound like Dax, but heck it could be Odo or Worf. But I hope we see a voice over for this person!! Man this is great! Great work Cryptic!
