Trekathon 384: The Visitor (DS9)

May 24th, 2012

Sisko dies, and Jake is obsessed with bringing him home.

This is the best episode of Star Trek I’ve seen in a very long time. Quite possibly ever. It’s not a big, galaxy wide story. It’s a small, personal story, but a deeply affecting and incredibly well written one.

The performance of the adult Jake is a huge part of the episode’s success. It’s a brilliant performance, that builds on the young Jake in a very clear way.

Anyone who watches this episode without a tear in their eye at the end is dead inside.

384 down, 353 to go.
