… Deep Space Nine's Most Endearing Episode

"Twenty-two years ago today, Deep Space Nine—at the height of its dark, complex, morally nuanced depiction of war, and the impact it has on utopia—delivered a poignant message about the concept of accepting loss.

Now that I think of it, maybe this was the episode that set the tone for the Vulcans in the first three seasons of Enterprise.
