Brooks objected to the original way that his final scene with Kasidy played out. The scene had been written as a final farewell, making it clear that Sisko had died. It had even been shot. However, Brooks did not like the optic of leaving his unborn child without a father. After Brooks raised his concern, Behr rewrote the ending, one in which Sisko says he would come back at an indeterminate time. The scene was reshot. Years later, on Chase Masterson's podcast, Behr said that the ending allowed Sisko to be effectively dead while his existence was literally ambiguous. Nonetheless, Brooks was satisfied.
