"The icy wastes of the planet Braxis provide a perfect environment to test both the physical and psychological fortitude of Dominion Defense Force recruits. Our soldiers must remain in fighting form in all possible battlefield conditions, and we have an impressive series of tests to weed out all the undesirables. My favorite training scenario is codenamed "Mountain Stronghold": a treacherous test of willpower and physical conditioning."

"Mountain Stronghold" was a Dominion Defense Force training exercise for recruits located on Braxis. Recruits had to withstand a seven-day siege with only three days supplies. As supplies ran out the opposing force would begin bombarding the fortress for a 72-hour stretch followed by an assault. Recruits who successfully completed this scenario moved on to the "Glacier Bay" exercise.
