Oh and another thing captain Sisko: we've just heard news about the death of senator vrenak, a tragic event indeed! The boys spent hours cleaning up the wreckage...You wouldn't happen to know of him, would you?
>...what makes you think so lieutenant?
>Oh it's just a little theory in my head, nothing too important...actually, we've found this tiny little thing among the debris. You know what this is sir?
>I'm afraid i don't know lieutenant, more cardassian literature for your tastes?
>It's an optolythic data rod. The obsidian order used to make then to record special orders, y'know. Very secret stuff and all that. Only that this isn't a real rod, it's a replica.
>what makes you think so lieutenant?
>Well you see my brother in law is married to a cardassian woman, oh very lovely people, they always bring my nephews to watch the riding hounds on sundays, you know the ones in the pen? Anyway, his brother just happens to work at the filing system of the detapa council, and he said to me that these rods are only made there, and only under direct order of the central command. This one though can't be an original, it was smuggled here, right in this station, by some individual i thought you might know, see
>Lieutenant this is outrageous! I will not stand this accuses based on circumstantial clap trap! Now if you'll excuse me, i have a station to run...
>Is this your access code? I got it from doctor bashir when he filed a complaint about being ordered to prepare 85 liters of biomimetic gel for interstellar shipping. Which we traced, and apparently were exchanged for this rod. And now, a former convict and known forger is found dead! How do you explain that to me sir?
>You know what i'm thinking sir? I think you killed senator vrenak, after he smelled the forgery and realized he was being played. And as soon as the boys at the Lab examine the rod, I'll know the motive too.
