One of the clips seen in Jake's montage is taken from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Visitor and features him at his father's bedside. However, this occurred in an alternate timeline which was subsequently negated so Jake should have no memory of it. See more »

after almost 3 years another sad day: DS9 is over
7 December 2007 | by f-palmaSee all my reviews

When I finished the last episode of ST The Next Generation three years ago, I thought nothing could be as good as it, but I was wrong: DS9 is fantastic too. Unluckly I just finished the last episode and now it's over... I must say I am a little sad. It kept me busy after work for a long time and now I miss them all: Captain Sisko, Odo, Bashir, chief O'Brien, Kira, Worf, Jadzia, Jake, Quark, Nog, Rom, Leeta, Garak, Dukat, Martok and above all Ezri (Nicole de Boer is really special). Thank you all. A really good job. The last episode ("What you leave behind") is the perfect conclusion. Don't see it before you see the previous episodes or you will loose the opportunity to "live" DS9 as it deserves (from season 1 to season 7 in a row).
