Excellent moment.
This was great.

Another favorite of mine is in Improbable Cause.

The entire scene, beginning to end, where Odo is in a cave talking to his contact. We don't see his face but we hear his awesome voice. I love how the nodding of his head (we see his eyes) don't quite match to what he is saying, because it makes us feel more disconnected. Not only does this develop Odo as a character, but in this scene, the canvas for DS9 expands to epic proportions. It's now about the entire quadrant. It's an awesome scene

That blew my mind the first time I saw it. Despite knowing by that point that DS9 was no TNG, I wasn't thinking far enough morally out-of-the-box to see that coming.

In fact while I enjoyed the backstory on Kira and Odo, and the fun they had with the film noir style, as I watched I was thinking the episode was rather predictable. I was like, "did they really expect me to believe for a moment that the first officer was actually the murderer?"

And then that final scene.

That was the last time I underestimated DS9's willingness to take the characters down the darker path.

Garak: "Especially the lies"

Worf: "DEATH TO THE OPPOSITION!"

Or when Quark was about to be smothered to death. Rom saves him, and Odo lets him know that he's a hero, and he saved Quark. Rom then screams in horror as he won't get the bar after all, and Quark gives that sly smile, I love it.

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

I like it when Sisko gives the order to Garak to go through with the lie to the Romulans in order to get them to join the war. Very Machiavellian (but a bit anti-Roddenberry - I do not think he would have allowed such a thing to happen if he were alive and actively involved in the show).

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

I love the moment at the end of "crossover" when mirror-Kira is giving those threats about what she's going to do to O'Brien and good-Kira, and the situation looks bad, and then mirror-Sisko intervenes, and say he hasn't lost his mind, he's just changed it.

your favourite moment of all time?

The Siege of AR-558, the entire episode

Duet - Maritza was brilliantly acted by Harris Yulin

In the Pale Moonlight - Brilliantly writen and acted.

Odo and Quark together. They were excellent together. Rene and Armin were perfect together.

Those would be my favorites as I don't have just one

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

How about the scene where Odo washes up onshore in Broken Link? Beautifully acted. I'm only sad they didn't use a take Rene Auberjonois mentioned where Odo sheds a tear. The whole thing is just done so well and tasteful. Odo is laying there, feeling his own chest and the look on his face, the wonder and fear. He's never felt a heartbeat before, or felt the "need" to breathe air. He has ribs and muscles. He's feeling things he never felt before. His body is a stranger.

Then Odo did this.



What makes this moment stand out to me is Odo reaching towards the female Changeling. Unlike Michelangelo's art, she doesn't respond. She stands there, looking down at him as a representative of the judge and jury, and that's how we know Odo has truly been cast out of paradise.

Re: your favourite moment of all time?

My favourite dialogue is probably Worf/Sisko at the end of the Way of the Warrior. I just like how it's written.

Favourite battle scene is in the same episode as above. Call to Arms is a close second.

The scenes between Sisko and the lead Jem in "Rocks and Shoals" are among some of the best written stuff in Trek history.

I agree.

that episode is slowly creeping up on me as my favorite Trek episode. The dialogue is remarkable good, yet not overwritten. These two characters really have some interesting things to say to each other. I really agree with you!

"It was not my life to give up captain, and it never was."

It's kind of tragic.
