Re: Biggest "Tear-Jerker" Moments in Trek

@cyke, good mention of the Haftel moment a the end, it was that that got me too.

I will throw in the last scene of the perfect mate, when Picard escorts her to the transporter pad, I don't know why, but it gets me.

I will agree with everyone on "it is linear" from The emissary, and the entire episode of the visitor, I cry the whole way through.

One I haven't seen mentioned yet: McCoy (with Sybok's help) reliving his euthanization of his father in TFF.

The scene in "Duet" where Marritza breaks down is pretty powerful.

The moment that got to me the most was when The Undiscovered Country went to end credits and each of the stars "signed their work". Gets me every time!

Re: Biggest "Tear-Jerker" Moments in Trek

The only two that brought me to actual tears were The Visitor and George Kirk's sacrafice in Star Trek. The ending montage of DS9 came close.

Re: Biggest "Tear-Jerker" Moments in Trek

Oh my god SO. MANY. THINGS.
I cry at EVERYTHING. Everything that's been said so far, cried at all them. Even the pic someone posted on page 2 - I cried seeing that photo

Other bits:
1) the whole of What You Leave Behind I've only seen once and sobbed the whole way through specifically the final hug between Julian and Miles where they couldn't even say anything, Odo putting on that tux (I'm tearing up now you see what I'm like????)
2) When Sisko sings The Best Is Yet To Come... Oh my god
3) 'Our babies would've been so beautiful...'
4) The end of every film (EVERY ONE)
6) Riker and Troi's wedding
7) Worf and Jadzia's wedding
8) When the prophets turned up when Sisko was all happy and they were all like 'you can't have her and you can't be happy with her in this house you've worked so hard for on Bajor that you love so much'
There's more that I can't remember right now

The ending of the episode where Bashir tries to find a cure for that artificial disease created by the Dominion was pretty intense.

And I love that when he gets back to the station, he keeps trying to find a cure.

Re: Biggest "Tear-Jerker" Moments in Trek

Not really a tear-jerker, but still powerful. In "Hippocratic Oath", the last thing Goran'Agar (the mutant Jem'Hadar who doesn't need white) says to O'Brien before going off to kill the rest of his own men:

"You are a soldier? ... Then you explain."

Re: Biggest "Tear-Jerker" Moments in Trek

Lots of good ones! Here's some of mine that springs to mind:

1. The death of Kai Opaka. The emotion Nana Visitor conveys, the anguish on that prison moon. It was the episode that made me believe DS9 could be great.

2. At the end of the Voyager episode "Year in Hell," Janeway reaches out to embrace Tuvok saying good-bye. For just a *moment* Tuvok breaks and embraces her back. That moment between them...get me every time!

3. Relics - a love letter to James Doohan.

4. The Picard scenes in the TNG episode "Family." You see the human pain behind the assimilation. A great Patrick Stewart episode.

Re: Biggest "Tear-Jerker" Moments in Trek

Biggest tear jerker for me:

Admiral Forrest's death in ENT.

Not only is Vaughn Armstrong my favorite actor of all time, but Forrest always reminded me of my father. When Forrest died, it was almost like if my dad had died. (Fortunately my dad is still very much alive, but watching Forrest die was almost like the "real thing", as it were.)

And you know, the MU Forrest's death hit me the same way. Because in both universes, Forrest was basically an honorable sort; both versions died while saving others' lives. Is that cool, or what?

In contrast, watch the end of Voyager: Unimatrix Zero. Janeway in sickbay, joking around after having been assimilated and had her body raped with implants. "Oh, the doctor still has to remove the stuff from my spinal column, and it's very painful, hahaha."

Re: Biggest "Tear-Jerker" Moments in Trek

The Picard scene in "Family" was good (and Spock's death scene in TWOK would be right at the top of the list if it hadn't been nerfed by his resurrection in the next film), but it's this:

... that's the undisputed champ for me.

"I am alive. I will always be alive! It's Marritza who's dead! Marritza, who was good for nothing but cowering under his bunk and weeping like a woman. Who every night covered his ears because he couldn't bear to hear the screaming... for mercy... of the Bajorans..."

Still puts a lump in my throat even now. I think it's probably the single strongest dramatic moment I ever saw in a Trek show.

This. Right here. That was a heartbreaking scene and the sheer emotion really got to me.

to be fair though, she was never mind raped by the Borg like Picard was.
