Re: most "wrong" episode...

Since we're talking ethically wrong, DS9 takes all the top places, be it all the episodes that very strongly imply that you have to appeal to a stronger power for literal salvation (Sacrifice of Angels comes to mind) or deliberately shady episodes like In the Pale Moonlight.

In the Pale Moonlight is a very good episode, but its ethics are wrong on more than the "means justify the ends" angle they went with: said "ends" aren't so noble to begin with.
I mean, sure, as viewers, we can agree that Romulan involvement in the war was in everyone's interests and Sisko is clearly convinced of it as well... but if you examine it critically, is it so obvious? And even if it is, who's Sisko to forego the Romulan right to self-determination?
