Keiko tried not to let her mind wander, but this was tedious, brain-numbing work. Still, it was a break from her routine. One thing you could say about Bajor, she decided, was that it was geologically di- verse. Deserts, forests, seas, mountains--you could find it all without looking very far, much like Earth. She instantly regretted thinking about Earth, because that only made her homesick. Suddenly, her knife struck something hard, much harder than burn residue. She peered closely at the area she had been scraping and saw tiny formations of crystal.

In concise detail, she related the near-fatal accident that resulted from explosive charges planted in the pylon of an archway. Dax listened with growing alarm, because she knew how important the shipyards were to the Bajoran recovery program. More disturbing was the possibili- ty that the shipyards weren't the primary target.
