Storyline


  • Donik: "The Alphas have come to respect you as a hunter. But we have suffered too many losses taking the Dominion. Either they submit to the hunt willingly, or we must euthanize them all."
  • Choice A
    • Captain: "Why not do it anyway? That would be quite the pile of trophies."
    • Donik: "There is no skill involved in executing a helpless beast. It is the thrill of the hunt that drives us, not the death blow."
  • Choice B
    • Captain: "How do you plan to euthanize the entire Dominion?"
    • Donik: "Various airborne and water-based toxins, when they combine within Founder anatomy, become chemically-active, forming an inert molecule waiting for the final 'trigger' toxin. It has already been tested on a shapeshifter subject... with great success."
  • Choice C
    • Captain: "Does this plan of action seem... sporting to you?"
    • Donik: "No. But it is the only way to ensure the hunt continues."
  • Donik: "Interacting with prey as if it were our intellectual equals is unthinkable to us, and the Dominion would never consent. We instead offer you the chance to present our terms."
  • Choice A
    • Captain: "What you ask is impossible. No one should voluntarily submit to being hunted."
  • Choice B
    • Captain: "I will pass the word to the Dominion, but I believe I can guess their response."
  • Choice C
    • Captain: "Genocidal intentions of this kind will earn you many more enemies."
  • Female Changeling: "Your cooperation with the Hirogen is a clear sign of the Federation's intentions towards us, and we will respond in kind. Deploy this toxin–you will not eliminate us before we have eliminated the Xindi."
  • Weyoun: "The Founders have authorized me to... erm, that is... they consent to be hunted. As long as an antidote to this toxin is delivered immediately."
  • Choice A
    • Captain: "A wise decision. The Dominion may even survive."
    • Weyoun: "We will do more than survive. We will remember."
  • Choice B
    • Captain: "I want you to know I didn't support this move."
    • Weyoun: "You did little to prevent it. I'm not sure of the difference."
  • Choice C
    • Captain: "After you threatened to wipe out the Xindi? No chance."
    • Weyoun: "We can only hope the Hirogen are more merciful than the Federation."
  • Donik: "You respect the hunt. We can ask no more of our allies. You shall never be prey."
  • Choice A
    • Captain: "That's a relief. Please extend that to the Federation."
  • Choice B
    • Captain: "Sure about that? I would be quite a challenge...."
  • Choice C
    • Captain: "Any day we avoided genocide is a good day."
