 “Guilt can be a difficult, but useful, emotion.” [Seven, VOY “Memorial”]

GARAK:  Happy birthday. I know it's a few days off, but I wanted to give you 
               your present early. It's a Cardassian holosuite program. An adaptation
               of one of Shoggoth's enigma tales. 
BASHIR:  Is it? I see. 
GARAK:  You sound disappointed. I thought you enjoyed mystery novels. 
BASHIR:  I do. Human mystery novels. The problem with Cardassian enigma tales 
                is that they all end the same way. All the suspects are always guilty. 
GARAK:  Yes, but the challenge is determining exactly who is guilty of what.
