Greatest Star Trek ending ever
22 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clearly free of the influence of Gene Roddenberry since he has died before this was broadcast. This series is far more about spiritual values and allows each of the characters to grow and mature individually. Instead of facing a new and contrived crisis each episode we can see the ongoing relationships among the various characters and frankly one must see more than a single season to see the connections and growth. Because of this the depth of caring we have for the characters is far higher, and this final episode is just overwhelming in its emotional contents.

Unlike all the other star Trek series, this one actually comes to a real and genuine close, each character's growth lines, all the various relationships come to a new stage/end. There is no "going off into the sunset" cop out ending like all the other Star Trek series and the feeling created in the true fans of this story line is traumatic, "it's over" leaving a void where a dear beloved series lived. I also have a tear in my eyes when I view this last episode. I bought the whole series on DVD before Netflix came out and now I have access whenever I want.

Others have noted the lack of care about the Voyager series but when one looks in on the final for that series it is a cheat, little emotion except anger over how it is broken and thrown together and probably because the writers/actors just got tired of doing it all.

Both the original series and Next generation were the "going off into the sunset" ending as if future movies would automatically come for them and pick up their story lines which they did. Not so for Deep Space Nine, the mold was broken and there will be no movies to follow. It is complete, done, Fin and no more needed, sad to lose a friend but OK since we know it could not have been better.
