||One of the best Star Trek episodes EVER. Period. I cried through most of the episode - unashamedly. My wife thinks I'm crazy but, I'm just in love with the characters, the acting, the plot, the story and the emotion of this episode. My goodness, an old Jake Sisko commits suicide to send his father back to the proper time? Such love! I could see my father doing this for me, or me doing this for my father. In a heartbeat! That's what love is - and that's what this father and son have for each other. This is not just a great episode, this is not just a fantastic episode, this just might be - in all seriousness - one of the best episodes of any Star Trek series ever. I'm not just spreading the butter all over this bread. I'm completely serious and I think a lot of people just might agree with me. Such writing and depth of emotion. I could watch this. All. Day. Long.
