Rescued from Circular File...
This is a complete section of the Deep Space Nine design which was deleted when the "CAPTIVE PURSUIT" module of the game was cut for memory reasons.
As I designed it, this was to be the most character-interactive part of the game. The player would have to talk to everyone, figure out who needed what, and then barter his way to the device needed to advance to the next action stage.
What follows is a "script" of character interaction, conveying what each character on the station will say to the player-character (first Sisko, then O'Brien) when approached. The other characters responses to them change as the stage progresses and the player has gathered information and items.
For example, when the script reads--
Garak at the entrance to his shop [chip for yamok sauce]:
--then the following responses will only occur if the player has obtained the chip for the yamok sauce (or spoken to the indicated character, etc.).
Finally, the somewhat truncated nature of the character dialogues is a direct result of the limited area in which text could appear. To keep things clear, wherever possible I wrote complete sentences that would fit within the limits of the display field.
Begins in Sisko's office.
--Sisko faces the leader HUNTER.
--O'Brien is present:--and O'Brien walkz out into OPS, where the player GAINS CONTROL of him.
I'm Benjamin Sisko, commander of this station.
I understand you have a claim on this Tosk. What is his crime?
He is not a criminal. He is an animal bred for sport hunting.
You hunt intelligent life?!
That is what his kind are for. You have no claim on him.
We demand that you turn him over to us at once.
If you'll excuse me, sir. I have work to get back to.
Kira in Ops:Dax in Ops:
What's going on?
Those aliens from the wormhole, they're hunting Tosk for sport!Sisko in his office (Hunter is present):
Do you think the commander will let those Hunters take the Tosk?
Probably. He won't want to, but he doesn't have much choice.
The Prime Directive prevents interfering with alien cultures.--The Hunter has nothing to say to O'Brien.
Chief, we're busy. Can't this wait until later?
Note:When O'Brien passes in front of one particular kiosk in the Promenade, the status bar should appear saying "JUMJA VENDOR".
Jumja Kiosk (O'Brien facing it):Bashir in the Infermary:
You haven't any money to buy jumja.Jake in the Promenade:
Something I can do for you, Chief?
Uh, no. Just dropped in to say "hello."Quark stands by the bar in his bar/casino:
Oh, hi, Jake.
Hi, Chief.Dabo Girl in Quark's:
Quark...know where I can get a security bypass module?
You expect me to have access to something illegal?! I'm hurt!
Save it, Quark. I need one, and I need one now!
Your Tosk friend, huh? Tell you what, you get me, say...
...100 gross of self-sealing stem bolts that I can trade...
...and I might be able to point you in the right direction.
Play a game, Chief?
Why not. What have I got to lose?
Yes! One bar of gold pressed latinum! Play again?
No, I'll quit while I'm ahead, thanks.
Note: After this exchange, the Dabo Girl does not speak again.
Garak at the entrance to his shop:The Klingon woman in the Promenade:
Chief. Do you know where I might obtain some yamok sauce?
If you can find some for me, I'll make it worth your while.Bajoran Monk at shrine:
tlhIngan Hol Dajatlh'a'
Sorry, I don't speak Klingon. Do you speak my language?
Of course. I just prefer speaking klingonese.Odo in his office:
You know the right path. Take it.Also in security is a WEAPONS LOCKER. O'Brien can take a BAJORAN PHASER from it. But, if he attempts to exit into the Promenade, the WEAPONS ALARM sounds, and O'Brien stops in his tracks as Odo confronts him:
If you want to see the Tosk he's in the brig.--and Odo TAKES the phaser away.
You know I don't allow weapons on the Promenade!
If you need a phaser, have Sisko tell me.
The first time O'Brien walks in, the program AUTOMATICALLY walks him to the Tosk's cell, which appears EMPTY.The Tosk, who has been INVISIBLE, suddenly appears:
Where'd he go?--this final line is ALL Tosk should say upon repeat visits.
I am here, O-bri-en.
There are Hunters here. They want to take you back.
If you request asylum, the commander might let you stay.
I can not. I am Tosk. it is my purpose to be hunted.
Help me, O-bri-en. Let me out of here, so I may die with dignity.
Kai Opaka stands at the portholes on the Promenade's upper level:The following dialogues occur only after O'Brien has obtained the items listed in or spoken to those named in bracketed boldface (i.e.-[jumja]).
I sense your loyalties are conflicted.
Do what you know is right.
The Klingon woman in the Promenade [Garak]:
Note: If O'Brien has not previously spoken to her, begin conversation with previous dialogue where she tells him she can speak "english."
(The Noh-Jay Consortium had been mentioned in an earlier section of this revision of the game design.)Jake in the Promenade [Klingon Woman]:
Do you happen to know about a "Noh-Jay Consortium?"
Ask the son of the commander.Jumja Kiosk (O'Brien facing it) [gold pressed latinum]:
Jake, do you know something about a "Noh-Jay Consortium"?
That's Nog's and my business. "Nog" and "Jake": "Noh-Jay".
We've got 5,000 wrappages of yamok sauce, but can't sell it.
I guess the Cardassians have yamok sauce on their ship.
Tell you what, I'll take the yamok sauce off your hands.
I'll buy you all the jumja you want for a month for it. Deal?
Deal! Get me one as downpayment and it's yours.Jake in the Promenade [jumja]:
I'd like to pay for a month's supply of jumja, for Jake Sisko.
And one to go.
Here you go, sir. That'll be...
Here's a bar of gold pressed latinum.
Keep the change!Garak at the entrance to his shop [chip for yamok sauce]:
You got the jumja!
Here's the ownership chip for the crate of yamok sauce. Thanks!
The pleasure is all mine, Jake.Quark stands by the bar in his bar/casino [Garak given yamok sauce]:
I have here the ownership chip for a crate of yamok sauce.
I am in your debt, sir!
It's yours for 100 gross of self-sealing stem bolts.
Agreed! Shall I have these bolts delivered to your quarters?
No, send them to Quark, care of my name.--and now O'Brien has the "key" to spring the Tosk.
I just heard those self-sealing stem bolts are being delivered.
Fast work! Ever thought of going into business with a ferengi?
No thanks, Quark. I did my part. What about your end of the deal?
I just happened to 'find' a security bypass module.
I think some "criminal" dropped it in my bar. And, being the...
...respected "community leader" I am, I'll turn it over to you.
The Brig. The Tosk in his cell: [security bypass module]The Tosk complies and becomes INVISIBLE:
You need to turn invisible for me to get you out, Tosk.Odo hurries to O'Brien and sees the empty cell:
Odo! Odo!Odo runs off. Tosk becomes VISIBLE when he's gone.
The Tosk has escaped! He isn't in his cell!
I'll find him! He won't get away!
O'Brien shuts off the forcefield, freeing the Tosk:
This security bypass module will disable the weapons sensors...
...in the promenade, so I can get a phaser! Come on!
Odo's office [freed Tosk]:
I forgot to disable the weapons sensors!
--Once O'Brien has disabled the weapons sensors, the chase in on!
