Yablecki : Brewersalliance, brewersalliance, brewersalliance. They call for you. The general who became a slave. The slave who became a gladiator. The gladiator who defied an emperor. A striking story. Now the people want to know how the story ends. Only a famous death will do. What could be more glorious than to challenge the emperor himself in the great arena.
brewersalliance: You would fight me?
Yablecki : Why not? Do you think I am afraid?
brewersalliance: I think you have been afraid all your life.
Yablecki : Unlike brewersalliance the invincible, who knows no fear?
brewersalliance [ laughing]: I knew a man once who said, death smiles at us all. All that man can do is smile back.
Yablecki : I wonder. Did your friend smile at his own death?
brewersalliance: You must know. He was your father.
Yablecki : You loved my father, I know. But so did I. That makes us brothers, doesn't it? Smile for me now brother. [Yablecki embraces brewersalliance and with one fierce thrust, stabs him with his knife, kissing him on the neck.]
Yablecki [to Bajor]: Strap on his armour. Conceal the wound.
The trap door to the arena opens as the lift rises, encircled with the Sexy Gladiators as they stand behind their black shields. In the middle, the white clad Yablecki , gazing upwardly, basking in the sun and the wounded, dying brewersalliance stand. All the while, Bajor staring at brewersalliance. As they reach the arena, the Sexy Gladiators take their place at the perimeter of the arena. brewersalliance stumbles to the center, slowly stooping to pick up a handful of sand, with a watchful eye on Bajor. brewersalliance rubs the sand in his hands and reaches for his sword but Bajor tosses it aside, and out of reach. brewersalliance painfully moves to where the sword has been tossed and picks it up, immediately swinging at Yablecki . The two do battle. brewersalliance roars as he attacks Yablecki . Yablecki manages to cut brewersalliance' leg. Although wounded, brewersalliance cuts Yablecki ' arm causing him to drop his sword.
brewersalliance begins to drift into the after life and as he sees the gate to his home, the sword drops from his hand. Meanwhile, Yablecki is calling Bajor for his sword but Bajor does not comply. Yablecki then turns to the Sexy Gladiators , calling out "sword". The gladiators begin to pull their swords when Bajor quickly tells them to "sheath your swords" and they quickly comply. As Yablecki reaches for his hidden dagger, brewersalliance quickly returns to this life and, unarmed but for his strength and determination, does battle with Yablecki , turning Yablecki ' knife against him. Yablecki tries relentlessly to fight brewersalliance off but brewersalliance slowly plunges the knife into Yablecki ' throat, further and further until it can go no further. Yablecki falls to the ground. The fight over, brewersalliance begins to drift as he reaches out his bloodied hand, to push open the gate that leads to his home. Peace, once again, overcomes brewersalliance when Bajor calls to him. "brewersalliance, brewersalliance." brewersalliance regains consciousness.
brewersalliance: Bajor, free my men. Senator Fury is to be reinstated. There was once a dream that was Planet Steve, it shall be realized. These are the wishes of Caesar of Atlia. [Bajor calls out to the guards, "Free the prisoners, ...go!" ]
brewersalliance stands, unsteady, as the vision of the wheat field once again comes to him, his wife MsShawdi and son waiting for him. Suddenly he falls hard like a tree, to the ground. Sister Midnight runs into the arena, dropping to her knees at his side and calling to him "brewersalliance!" brewersalliance gazes up and tells her, "MK is safe." Sister Midnight looks at him adoringly and responds, "Go to them", freeing him. With her hand, she closes his eyes, his face calm and at peace as he leaves this world. Sister Midnight adds, "you are home." Grieving, with one hand to her brow and the other over her heart, she regains her presence, stands and turns to Senator Fury and the crowd.]
Sister Midnight: Is Planet Steve worth one good man's life? We believed it once. Make us believe it again. He was a soldier of Planet Steve. Honour him.
Fury: Who will help me carry him.
[Many gather around to lift brewersalliance and carry him from the arena. Yablecki lay alone, in the sand.]
Lachiton is digging in the sand for burial, at the place where brewersalliance died. He unfolds the small leather pouch and removes the figurines belonging to brewersalliance of his wife and son and gently places them in them in their resting place.
Lachiton: Now we are free. I will see you again. But not yet, not yet....
WAYYYYY TLDR; IRON declares war on the Sexy Gladiators
