Scene 7

7.         KIRA, MAKING SUPERFICIAL CONVERSATION WITH DAX, WATCHES

            SISKO’S OFFICE CLOSELY UNTIL JAREN ENTERS OPS AND WALKS

            TOWARD O’BRIAN WHO IS WORKING AT HIS CONSOLE.

 

DAX

                                    (staring at computer screen)  Kira, could you access the

                                    cargo bay four manifest for me on the other terminal?

 

KIRA

                                    (looking around her)  Ah, sure Dax.

 

Kira takes a seat beside Dax, keeping her back turned toward Jaren.  She punches some keys on the console.  Dax turns to look at Kira, puzzled.  Dax reaches over and punches one key.  Kira looks up and gives and embarrassed smile.  Dax returns the smile.

 

JAREN

                                    If you’re ready, chief, we can go down, now, and get

                                    to work.

 

O’BRIAN

                                    (working at another console)  Alright.  I just finished

                                    down loading your ship’s engineering log.  Maybe it’ll

                                    give us something more to go on.  (pause)  Major, I –

 

O’Brian looks up and over at Dax while Dax turns to look beside her.  Kira is gone.  The turbo lift door closes.

 

DAX

                                    (shrugs shoulders)  Why, she was just here a second

                                    ago.  I . . .

 

O’BRIAN

                                    That’s alright.  (smiles at Dax and Jaren)  Dax, will you

                                    forward a copy of the log to Sisko and let him know I’ll

                                    be in docking bay six?

 

DAX

                                    I’ve got it, chief.

 

O’BRIAN

                                    Thanks.

 

O’Brian and Jaren EXIT on the turbo lift.
