Nature of the Wormhole
How does the test signal get through from the alpha quadrant when the wormhole isn't open? ThetaOrion 05:21, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
- The comet fragments leaked a small amount of silithium through the field around the shuttle, which created a subspace filament back through the wormhole that acted like a carrier wave for subspace signals.– The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jswitte (talk • contribs).
- Indeed, most of the writing staff consider "Destiny", "Accession" and "Rapture" to be a self-contained "Emissary trilogy", showing Sisko's different stages of acceptance of his role.
Since this has been left uncited for a while, I thought I'd move it here for discussion. If anyone has a source for this, feel free to re-add it. --| TrekFan Open a channel 05:04, March 17, 2011 (UTC)

In this episode, O'Brien surprises the crew for completing a job well before the estimated time. He then explains that he gives larger time figures in order to have a more comfortable margin. This seems to mirror a similar line by Scotty: in one of the TOS films he implied to give larger time figures so that he seems a genious when he completes his work earlier than expected. I thought adding this similarity in a Trivia or Continuity section, but I can't remember the exact film Scotty said this line. MoffRebusMy Talk 09:54, March 9, 2014 (UTC)
