Appendices[edit | edit source]

Background information[edit | edit source]

  • Call to Arms... features an image of Captain Sisko from "Rocks and Shoals" just after the cover page.
  • In between the chapters are quotes from several fictional and real individuals. These include one of Benjamin Sisko's statements in "Call to Arms" (One thing's for certain. We're losing the peace"), the Charge of the Light Brigade ("Was there a man dismay'd?" and "Theirs not to make reply/Theirs not to reason why/Theirs but to do or die"), Theodore Roosevelt ("The first requisite of a good citizen in this republic of ours is that he shall be willing and able to pull his own weight"), Lord Bowen ("The rain it raineth on the just/And also on the unjust fella/But chiefly upon the just, because/The unjust steals the just's umbrella") and Abraham Lincoln ("Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith let us to the end dare to do our duty as we understand it").
