Yeah I really enjoyed that, nice to have the scene with them together without Picard and the Enterprise overshadowing the rest of the episode. Saying that it would have been nice to have had a scene with O'Brien saying goodbye to a few of his shipmates.

I didn't watch DS9 when it was on TV, not a single episode. I watched it for the first time in Spring of 2007, I fell in love with it. I have watched the entire series 4 times all the way through since then.

Indeed....and it creates a dramatic tension. Sisko definitely has a problem with Picard...an unfounded one due to the nature of what precipitated the tension...but a human problem nonetheless. It is a problem that Sisko himself must reconcile, and he does.

Plus, it was nice to see a glimpse of the Battle of Wolf 359.
