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.

At 26:25, when the adult Jake Sisko turns to walk away from his desk, a stage light can be clearly seen out the window. It starts out lit (presumably having illuminated the previous camera angle of him writing at the desk) then turns off as he walks away, but remains visible for the rest of the shot. See more
[on Ben Sisko's accident
I'm not sure I could ever get over losing somebody like that; right in front of my eyes.
Adult Jake Sisko
People do. Time passes, and they realize that the person they lost is really gone. And they heal.
Is that what happened to you?
Adult Jake Sisko
No - I suppose not.
