Storyline

Jake Sisko, now an old man, is living alone in a house in a bayou. He gets an unexpected visit from Melanie. She's an aspiring writer and considers Jake as her favorite author. She was surprised he published only two works. At the age of 40, Jake simply stopped writing and Melanie wants to know why. Jake starts telling her the story of how his father died in an accident on the Defiant. Benjamin and Jake went to see the wormhole undergo a subspace inversion, that only happens once in several decades. Something was wrong however and the warp core was about to breach. After repairing it, Sisko was hit by a beam and disappeared. Few months later things were returning to normal for Jake, but suddenly he saw his father in his bedroom, only to disappear a moment later. But this wasn't the only time his father reappeared.

Trivia

Tony Todd plays the adult Jake Sisko, but Aron Eisenberg plays Nog at all ages, looking basically the same, suggesting that Ferengi age a lot more slowly than humans. See more »

Slow and Boring.
26 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was always surprised by the number of Star Trek fans who liked this episode. When I asked them why they liked it, they told me that they liked it because it was very sad and touching.

I found "The Visitor" to be neither. Instead, I thought it was slow and boring.

However, "The Visitor" isn't an action-packed episode. It is about Jake's love for his father and how far Jake would go for him. I, myself, am a fan of action packed (and sometimes, a little romantic) Star Trek, not dramatic Star Trek.

So, overall, what I am saying is that it really depends on what kind of episodes you like - action, drama, romance, etc.
