In the deep space nine episode titled "the ship". Why didn't the dominion simply beam the federation officers off the ship. They were clearly capable of transporting inside the ship, the ship had no shields and the dominion have superior transporter technology.The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Because then there would have been no story. :) In all seriousness I would have to give it a fresh watch to give a better answer.--31dot 23:54, December 14, 2011 (UTC)
Also remember that most everything about the Dominion's reactions was based on the idea of not risking harm to the Changeling. It is not unreasonable to assume that your enemy has some sort of trip device or "dead man's switch" that might explode in the event of a mass beamout. --OuroborosCobra talk 06:46, December 15, 2011 (UTC)
