* In the episode "Once More Unto the Breach" of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', aging, washed-up Klingon warrior Kor [[HeroicSacrifice takes on ten Jem'Hadar ships in a suicide delaying action in order to allow the rest of the Klingon ships to escape]]...after [[MoreExpendableThanYou knocking out Worf, who was originally supposed to take the mission]], with a hypospray. Before departing, he tells the unconscious Worf that he will find Worf's dead wife, Jadzia, in the afterlife, and assure her that her husband is a noble warrior who still loves no one but her. At this sacrifice, Martok, who had denigrated Kor as a useless has-been for most of the story, proposes a toast to Kor: "A noble warrior to the end." To the Klingons, there is no higher compliment.

Doing this also allows Kor [[AGoodWayToDie to die a Klingon's death: in battle, not in dotage]].

* Bashir: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=387EEt_GeVU#t=4m01s "So that's what we've become: a 24th Century Rome, guided solely by the principle that Caesar can do no wrong!"]]. Arguably a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for both the character and the actor. Starts at 4:15.

* Bashir: [[http://www.[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=387EEt_GeVU#t=4m01s com/watch?v=DhkfuyBLDlY "So that's what we've become: a 24th Century Rome, guided solely by the principle that Caesar can do no wrong!"]]. Arguably a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for both the character and the actor. Starts at 4:15.It's also one for Admiral Ross and his actor: ""I don't like it. But I've spent the last year and a half of my life ordering young men and young women to die. I like that even less." It helps that neither character is depicted as right or wrong. Is Bashir being true to the ideals of Starfleet or just being naive? Is Ross acting in the best interests of The Federation or just morally compromising everything it stands for?

** Another awesome Quark moment happens at the end of "Body Parts". Brunt maneuvers him into breaking a Ferengi contract, ruining his business. Quark loses the day, but, rather uncharacteristic for a Ferengi, says:
---> '''Quark''': Look, I've broken the contract, so do your job. Take my assets, revoke my Ferengi business licence. Do whatever you have to do then get out. And if I ever see you walk into my bar again...
---> '''Brunt''': Yes?
---> '''Quark''': You won't walk out.

'''Garak:''' Oh, I think that there is! You see, when the Tal Shiar finishes examining the wreckage of Vreenak's shuttle, they'll find the burnt remnants of a Cardassian optolithic data rod that somehow miraculously survived the explosion. After painstaking forensic examination, they'll discover that the rod contains a recording of a high level Dominion meeting at which the invasion of Romulus was being planned.\\

'''Garak:''' Oh, but I don't think that they will! Because any imperfections in the forgery will appear to be a result of the explosion! So, with a seemingly legitimate rod in one hand, and a dead senator in the other, I ask you, Captain: what conclusion would ''you'' draw?\\

'''Sisko:''' [sighs, resigned to the [[AwfulTruth flawless, hideous truth]]] That Vreenak obtained the rod on Soukara, and that the Dominion killed him to prevent him from returning to Romulus with it.\\

* SFDebris has made it his mission to elevate Sisko to MemeticBadass levels. "They name the ship the Defiant because they couldn't fit the USS Ben Sisko's Motherfuckin' Pimp Hand on the side!"

*** At one point, just before the station's new armaments are revealed, the Klingons initially dismiss the readings of the weaponry as "duranium shadows"--a CallBack to the pilot, where Major Kira bluffed a trio of Cardassian warships with a sensor illusion that showed the station as having 5000 photon torpedoes and integrated phaser banks on all levels. The Klingons are seeing the ''exact'' same readings now, but being [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Klingons]]--and in greater numbers than the Cardassians were in the pilot--they're more likely to call a bluff. This time, though, it ''isn't'' a bluff--the weapons are ''real''.
