your favourite moment of all time?

Right, it's difficult enough to pick a favourite episode in this excellent series - so many contenders; worse to pick a favourite scene...

...even so, does anyone have a single favourite MOMENT that they could point to above all others?

My one is towards the end of "Sacrifice of Angels" when Dukat gives Damar the order to fire on the minefield (having delayed just for a couple of heartbeats just in order to really relish the occasion), and then the whole damn shooting match goes up! (Rom and Kira having been just that fraction of a second too late...)

This is my one top instant, bar nothing.

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

I know it's very sappy and corny, so I apologize in advance...and I'm usually not a fan of stories where everything in wrapped up into a nice little bow at the end...but to me those scenes in the final episode starting with Vic (great addition to the show for me), and all of the scenes where the characters are thinking back and we see brief clips from past episodes, and finally the camera pulling away from DS9 slowly with Kira and Jake in the window, and that music! They successfully pulled at my heart on that one. It was an awesome finale.

(sorry, I know those are multiple moments and not a single moment. I cheated.)

My only wish, and I know others have mentioned this, is for Worf's "looking back" scene to focus on his relationship with Jadzia rather than Ezri, or at least MOSTLY scenes with Jadzia. I understand that there were reasons behind the scenes. But it would be nice for that to be corrected if we ever get DS9 on blu-ray. It shouldn't be too difficult and hopefully enough time has passed that they can do it.

My favourite is in Heart of Stone when Nog explains to Sisko why he wants to be in Starfleet: "Beacause I don't want to end up like my father!"

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

Sisko's last monologue at the end of In the Pale Moonlight. If there was any doubt that DS9 was not playing by the same rules as any of the other Trek series, this episode pushed that doubt away.

"So... I lied. I cheated. I bribed men to cover up the crimes of other men. I am an accessory to murder. But most damning of all... I think I can live with it... And if I had to do it all over again... I would. Garak was right about one thing – a guilty conscience is a small price to pay for the safety of the Alpha Quadrant. So I will learn to live with it...Because I can live with it...I can live with it. Computer – erase that entire personal log."

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

I think my favorite moment of the series is the end of The Visitor:

"To my Father, who is coming home."

I tear up every time I see that scene.

I came here to post this.

Ending of The Visitor made me cry like a little bitch though.

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

The scene in the Prophet recreated Saratoga corridor from Emissary:

TACTICAL: But this is your existence.
SISKO: But it's difficult to be here, more difficult than any other memory.
TACTICAL: Why?
SISKO: Because, because this was the day that I lost Jennifer. I don't want to be here.
JENNIFER: Then why do you exist here?
SISKO: I don't understand.
JENNIFER: You exist here.

As someone who has lost quite a few friends and relatives along the way, this is the scene that resonates the most for me from all of Trek.

I just watched Emissary this last weekend and the more I see this episode, the more I think it might be the best pilot. You get so much out of each viewing and the scene you mentioned, BillJ, was terrific. He was teaching the prophets about Linear time and the Prophets were teaching him to not grieve anymore and move on. It was a really poignant scene and beautifully executed.

Emissary is an excellent pilot, to the best Star Trek series.

The Cage is the best pilot though. I wish Trek did that type of hard sci-fi more often.

Definitely the best pilot of the Modern Trek era, though I do rank the two TOS pilots a bit higher.

May as well chuck in a shout-out for "IT'S RREEEEEAAAL!". People dismiss Brooks' acting in that scene but I think he's amazing in it.
