23 February 2006 | by (manchester england) – See all my reviews

I hope it's not just me but i seem to end up crying every time i watch this episode. Even when I read the book version i couldn't stop myself. The acting in it is so good that I really felt what they were going through as the friends all parted for the final time. The writers did an excellent job and the actors an even better one. The only thing letting it down are the occasional special effects that could do with some work. Cirroc (Jake Sisko) did an excellent job, with the final scene of him looking out into the stars sending me to tears every time. If you have watched any episode of DS9 before you will feel the love oozing off the screen and i just hope you don't come over all girly too. I could undoubtedly watch this episode over and over. I love it!!
