The script for the episode  had a further log entry that was removed from the final episode. The log read as "Ship's Log, Stardate 48213.1. We have arrived at Callinon VII under cloak and assumed a standard orbit. The relay station on this planet should not only help us in our search for the Founders, but should also provide us a first glimpse at the technology of the Dominion."
"Ship's Log, supplemental. We have picked up a total of twelve Honshu survivors so far but there is still no sign of Captain Sisko. We have less than twelve hours before we must abandon the search."
"Ship's Log, Stardate 51413.6. We have rescued Captain Sisko, but we did not have time to locate GulDukat's shuttle. We are now en route to our rendezvous with the troop convoy near the Badlands and the captain is recovering in sickbay."
