Synopsis: After an accident in the engine room of the Defiant apparently claims the life of Benjamin Sisko, Jake lives out his life in an endless quest to locate his father.

Memory Alpha Summary: Not Nana

Review: So many people love this episode and found it emotionally resonating. It definitely felt like it was trying to reach the high of The Inner Light. And while I appreciate the themes involved, it didn’t move me even a little bit.

I don’t know how much of that is due to Avery Brooks and Tony Todd not convincing me or if it was the endless narration by Sisko that took me out of the episode. It just felt like this episode was a lot of telling and telling and telling and barely any showing.
