Re: your favourite moment of all time?

I want to give another moment that was a favorite and made me convinced Ezri was a worthy replacement to Jadzia. It was her scene with Worf in Tacking into the Wind where she rightfully criticizes Klingon History sending Worf over the edge. Considering Curzon and Jadzia were very much engrained in Klingon society, to have Ezri come out and say that was very bold and one of my many favorite scenes in the episode.

^+1 That was mine. It was Ezri's statement, not his conversation with Sisko that motivated Worf to do what he did.

those scenes in the final episode starting with Vic.....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.
Absolutely seconded (though I don't think it will happen when DS9 reaches blu-ray )

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

"To my Father, who is coming home."
My wife cries throughout that whole episode, and I definitely tear up during many moments.

The scene in the Prophet recreated Saratoga corridor from Emissary:
Just introduced a friend to DS9 this weekend and he was shocked that that was the pilot, just because how good it was. I do think it's the best - so emotional, without playing on emotions cheaply.

GOWRON

I should've known better than to
trust you again. If you were a
true Klingon, I would kill you
where you stand. Fortunately for
you, that child's uniform shields
you from your rightful fate.


WORF
What I say now, I say as a member
of the House of Martok, not as a
Starfleet officer... you have
dishonored yourself and the
Empire. You are not worthy of
leading the Council.

For me, though there are moments which I think are better, none come close to capturing how I felt when I saw the epic Gowron/Worf fight when I first watched the show. When Worf was thrown through the glass, I was just in awe. Now yeah - I know Trek isn't exactly renown for its fighting choreography, and I've seen many, many far better fight sequences. But for some reason, in the context of the overreaching Klingon storyline, DS9, and the episode itself, that scene just wowed me more than any other.

I thought this was an excellent scene as well. One that really showed the difference in Jadzia vs. Ezri. This is when I started liking her.

Call me weird, but I can't say whether it was done on purpose, but I think there was a lot of cool symbolism during that fight too, particularly with that glass.

First, the camera follows the fight from the other side of the glass, and we see Gowron and Worf in combat in the background, with a pane of glass in the foreground showing Klingon ships flying into battle. Then Gowron throws Worf through it, and it shatters, in my mind symbolizing that Gowron is destroying the Empire. Then when going for the killing blow, Worf emerges from the shattered remains and kills Gowron.

I guess I could be reading too much into it, but it's cool. The only thing lacking was the music during the fight, but it was okay. It wasn't as Klingon as I would have liked.

Oh -- and I love Garek's "I'm still here, Russot" and the grin he makes afterwards. Then there are the two moments between Kira and Damar, first about his family, then after killing Russot. Great episode all around.

My other favorite moment of all time is in Shadows and Symbols when all of the plot threads of the episode got resolved -- the attack on the Monac shipyard to get Jadzia into Sto-vo-Kor, the Orb of the Emmisary, and it's subtle dovetailing into the standoff between Kretak and Kira. When Kira saw the Celestial Temple return, she couldn't care less how outgunned the Romulans had her. You can practically see her faith and confidence appear on her face. I love watching Nana Visitor act.

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

My favorites:

Nog's speech to Sisko "BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO END UP LIKE MY FATHER"

Our Man Bashir: Bashir destroys Earth

Garak: "The key is to figure out who is guilty of what."

Dukat finds Sisko's baseball: "This is his way of telling me, he'll be back."

Quark to Vulcan Maquis: "The price of peace is at an all time low!"

Zek: "Due to the malicious lies spread by our competitors, people believe that we are not to be trusted!"

Eloise Hawking: "Curzon...was in my bed."

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

This show is littered with scenes.

I love the "Damnit, we just can't leave her here! No! No!" It gets me every time. If I lost my love and had to leave her body, well, that might be running through my head now. But it's just so heart-breaking.

I love the end of Duet, from the monologue in the holding cell to the death. "He's a Cardassian."

I love the end of Necessary Evil when Kira and Odo close his first case on Terok Nor.

I love Odo talking about assuming shapes in the garden in Search, P2.

I love the whole Visitor episode. It's just so touching.

I love in Rocks and Shoals when Sisko talks to Ra'Mantiklan about "the order of things."

I love Damar's speech in The Changing Face of Evil.

I love the fight Quark and Nog have in The Siege at AR-558.

I love the scene where Kira is comforting Odo on the Jem'Hadar ship. I forget which episode it is. He's about to die, and it's so tender. She's been hardened and she's fighting in a resistance cell again. But she shows how much she truly loves Odo.

"For Cardassia! FREEDOM!!!"

"I am the only Cardassian left! And if no one else will stand against the Klingons, I will!" Gul Dukat.

Some of them. I agree with most of the moments in here.

Hang on, didn't Nog's father become the Grand Nagus?

And before that, wasn't he the genius who thought up how to keep the Dominion invasion on hold for a ridiculously long time?

Two moments.

The dramatic: Aamin Marritza starts crying in Duet.

The funny/awesome: "Maybe you should talk to Worf again!"

He was, but he didn't get to have those moments till a couple of seasons after Nog had applied to be in Starfleet, and his 'genius' had yet to become apparent. Who knows, maybe seeing his son try to apply himself to something beyond simple Ferengi greed inspired him to do more with his own life.

SISKO: How's Martok?
WORF: Doctor Bashir says he will make a full recovery.
SISKO: I'm glad to hear that. Mister Worf, we've got a serious problem on our hands.
WORF: Gowron.
SISKO: He seems hell bent on continuing these offensives regardless of the cost.
WORF: He is a stubborn and arrogant man.
SISKO: That may be true, but I hope he's not a fool. He's risking the entire defence posture. Why can't he see that?
WORF: I suspect the Chancellor cannot see anything at the moment except for one man.
SISKO: You mean Martok?
WORF: The Chancellor sees him as a political threat. These attacks against the Dominion are designed to humiliate the General in the eyes of the Empire. To force him to endure defeat after defeat.
SISKO: Are you telling me that this is a political vendetta?
WORF: It would not be the first time that a Klingon Chancellor put his own interests ahead of the greater good.
SISKO: Something has to be done.
WORF: Agreed. And I do have a solution. But it will not be easy.
SISKO: Do whatever it takes, Mister Worf. Those Klingon ships out there are the only thing between us and the Breen. Gowron is risking the safety of the entire Alpha Quadrant and he has to stop.
WORF: Understood.

The intensity and meaning avery brooks put behind that last sisko sentence was superb.

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

I know the Bajor/religion episodes are unpopular with many fans since Trek historically celebrates humanist ideals (among other reasons). Well, I'm one of those weird Trek fans who actually loves the Bajor/religion episodes. Here's a likely unpopular moment in DS9 which happens to be one of my all-time favorites. It's an exchange from "Accession," an episode which I read the producers had to fight the studio to make. I'm really glad they did even if my taste is unpopular.
Odo: Forgive me, Major, I don't mean to be difficult, but your faith seems to have led you to something of a contradiction.
Major Kira: I don't see it as a contradiction.
Odo: I don't understand.
Major Kira: That's the thing about faith. If you don't have it you can't understand it, and if you do - no explanation is necessary.
