* In the very first episode, there's a rather understated one between O'Brien and [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Captain Picard]]. During the episode, O'Brien transfers from the ''Enterprise'' to [=DS9=] as part of a promotion. When the time finally comes to leave, he stops by the captain's ready room on the bridge, but decides against interrupting when told that Picard is busy at the moment. But when he heads to the transporter room, Picard walks in right after after being told that O'Brien stopped by to see him.

** The pilot earns its Heartwarming stripes by the mere CharacterDevelopment TheCaptain, okay really Commander, undergoes in the space of one episode. When we first meet Sisko, he's literally consumed with rage and regret over the death of his wife, going so far as to come ''thisclose'' to outright insubordination to Captain Picard, such is his contempt for the man he holds responsible for his wife's death. He doesn't want to be in Starfleet and he doesn't want to be on a wrecked Cardassian station. But, a run-in with some non-corporeal aliens and Sisko rediscovers that the end of one thing is an opportunity for something different; maybe something greater… this is one of ''Franchise/StarTrek'''s founding themes. The revitalized Commander asks Picard to rescind his request for a transfer and makes it clear he's at [=DS9=] to stay. Picard simply smiles and wishes Sisko good luck before shaking hands and leaving.

* Kasidy Yates's return to the station. She's been in jail for about a year for smuggling food and medical supplies to the Maquis, and Sisko was the one who had to arrest her. When she comes back? It's like she never left and they never bring it up again. It's not a lack of continuity, it's that to Sisko, this is the woman he loves, and he doesn't care - she's done her time, and they can continue with their lives together.

* During ''Tacking Into The Wind'', Worf tells Ezri that he and Martok had a talk, and they decided that they both considered her to still be a member of the House of Martok. He also values her opinion enough to ask her about the Gowron situation.

Added DiffLines:

* The Founder is adamant over a BolivianArmyEnding to force Cardassia and the Federation a severe PyrrhicVictory - until Odo melds with her. Note the expression on her face after it's done, as if a quadrillion tons are taken off her, and her joy that Odo will return to the Link. She stated earlier that that was her number one goal, and everything... ''everything'' was subsidiary. She wasn't exaggerating, even to the point of accepting a possible capital punishment. (Fridge Heartwarming is that she - and the Link - will know of his love for Kira.)

* The end of Nog's story in "Heart of Stone". After Sisko finally [[TearJerker forces Nog to tell him why he wants to join Starfleet,]] Sisko realises how badly he's misjudged Nog and commits to helping him become a Starfleet officer. Nog is so delighted he ''hugs'' Sisko and promises he'll never regret it. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcATQUFsz68 Watch it!]]
** And on the greater scale of things, Nog lives up to that promise, becoming a model Starfleet officer who makes Sisko ''proud.'' In a way, even though Sisko was happy enough to let Jake become a writer and journalist rather that following in Sisko's footsteps as he'd hoped, Nog fulfilled Sisko's dream in Jake's place. Just to give it some perfect closure, one of Sisko's last acts in the final episode is to promote Nog to lieutenant junior grade.
** Not to be missed is Rom's reaction to Nog wanting to join Starfleet. Quark forbids it and Rom, in a rare display of backbone, puts his foot down, tells Quark that he runs the bar, but Nog is HIS son, and wishes Nog good luck at Starfleet Academy.
*** In many ways, Nog taking this step is what gives Rom the courage and resolve to kickstart his own personal development - he begins to stand up to Quark to protect Nog, and in the following season, leaves the bar to join the station's engineering team. All because he saw his son attempt to follow his own path, rather than what was expected of a Ferengi.
*** A very interesting and decidedly meta moment of heartwarming- Over on Star Trek: Voyager, Harry Kim was an ensign for seven years. He was actually served a drink by Nog back on Deep Space Nine before ''Voyager'' left dock. In seven years, he never was promoted above ensign. Nog not only went to Starfleet Academy, graduated, but now is a Liutenant Junior Grade, in less than half that time. Now consider that the Ferengi were originally designed as a Straw Race--designed to look bad and show as a reflection of modern day humans, how our greed and misogyny and bad habits would eventually turn out, while the Federation was made of humans, who were perfect. Now, well over a decade later, and we see what happens to a race created as an anviliciously evil menace when they really apply themselves. Nice way to overcome the stereotype, Ferengi.

* Jadzia and Lenarah Kahn in "Rejoined." Lovers in past lives, Dax and Kahn have been dealing with unresolved issue and flirting with taboo and after they kiss (itself a CMOH and TearJerker). While on the Defiant, Kahn is in the Engineering Bay and Dax is on the bridge when a plasma conduit is ruptured in Engineering. Jadzia wastes no time getting down there, and if Eddington says that if they don't vent the plasma into space, the entire ship will go. Dax walks over the plasma leak by putting a force field on top of it, pulls Kahn into the next room. Their exchange as they're holding each other:
-->'''Kahn:''' I don't want to lose you...not again...
-->'''Dax:''' Not again. Never again. Never again. Never...



* The wedding of Worf and Jadzia, and the tale of the first two Klingon, who instead of fighting each other, joined together and slew their gods, showing that nothing is stronger than two hearts together.
** Special mention also goes to Martok talking some sense into Worf when he decides the wedding is off.
-->'''Martok:''' We are not accorded the luxury of choosing the women we fall in love with. Do you think Sirella is anything like the woman I thought that I'd marry? She is a prideful, arrogant, mercurial woman who shares my bed far too infrequently for my taste. And yet... I love her deeply. We Klingons often tout our prowess in battle, our desire for glory and honor above all else... but how hollow is the sound of victory without someone to share it with? Honor gives little comfort to a man alone in his home... and in his heart.
** In the marriage ceremony, Sirella, who had been unusually hard on Jadzia the entire episode, is the one who tells the tale of the two Klingon hearts. She ends it with a statement that nothing can withstand the beating of two Klingon hearts together..."not even I".
** And when the ceremony's complete Sirella ''smiles and hugs'' Jadzia.

* The first season finale "In The Hands Of The Prophets" involves Vedek Winn stirring up conflict between the Bajoran and Federation crews, and when Sisko reaches the end of his rope, he starts [[PatrickStewartSpeech speechifying.]]
--> '''Sisko:''' The Bajorans who have lived with us on the station, who have worked with us for months, who helped us move this station to protect the wormhole, who joined us to explore the Gamma Quadrant, who have begun to build the future of Bajor with us, these people know that we are neither the enemy nor the devil. We don't always agree. We have some damned good fights in fact, but we always come away from them with a little better understanding and appreciation of each other.



* It's just a small thing, but still. Watching Koloth ''[[DeadpanSnarker nursemaid]]'' Kor (despite his complaints that he would do no such thing) in "Blood Oath" was rather adorable in its own way. These are two battle hardened warriors who have watched each other's backs for almost a hundred years, so it kind of makes sense. Though it's also great on a meta level, since this is the first time the pair have ever been seen on screen together. The fans of the original series have been hoping for a team-up like this for years, and they finally got their wish.



* While it may sound surprising, the episode "Take Me Out to the Holosuite" is probably one of the series biggest CMOH's. Watching Deep Space 9's senior staff pulling together all throughout the episode was very pleasant to watch. From everyone standing by Rom's side when Sisko kicked him off the team. Watching ''[[SourSupporter Quark]]'' of all people putting his heart and soul into the training, ''and'' the team. But the best part would have to be when Sisko gets Rom back in the game [[spoiler: and Rom manages to score]].
** And both the "manufactured triumph!" bit and the team giving Sisko a baseball signed by all of them. Aww.

* Garak's interactions with Tain's housekeeper, Mila. In "The Die Is Cast," Garak persuades Tain that she is trustworthy and loyal when Tain suggests killing her for knowing too much, and, while Garak, Damar, and Kira are hiding out in her basement on Cardassia, she essentially says she's proud of Garak, and he gives a rare sincere smile.
** It's implied (and the novel ''A Stitch In Time,'' written by Garak's actor, goes with this interpretation) that she is his mother.
* The whole of the episode "Explorers" explores the loving father-son bond between Captain Sisko and Jake. From Ben and Jake sharing an adventure together by [[ExperimentalArcheology building an ancient solar sail-barge]] and becoming the Federation's version of Thor Heyerdal by proving that ancient Bajorans used these vessels to travel all the way to Cardassian space, to his unconditional support of Jake's desire to pursue a writing career. Ben and Jake Sisko present one of the most positive father-son relationships since [[Series/TheAndyGriffithShow Sherrif Taylor and Opie]].



* The episode "In the Cards" is one of the franchise's few truly successful comedy episodes, focusing on Jake's attempt to cheer up his father in the wake of the looming war by getting him a mint condition Willie Mays rookie card. This ultimately involves both him and Nog having to do favors for a bunch of other people: do jobs for O'Brien so he can go kayaking on the holodeck, retrieve Bashir's childhood teddy bear after his ex-girlfriend stole it, punch up an important speech for Kira, and fix distortions in Worf's collection of opera recordings. At the episode's end, we see the results of all this as Captain Sisko records a log entry that somehow people on the station seem happy again. Finally, he receives the hard-won card from his son and wraps him in a huge hug. Watch the ending with Sisko's log and the hug [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgldQAYEB3o here]].



* "Ties of Blood and Water" is a big mix of this and TearJerker. Kira returns Ghemor's side and remains with him until he dies. Then she buries him next to her father, under the same tree.

* An odd one, but I've always thought that Dukat and Weyoun angrily insisting to each other that the Damar is not a liar and the Jem'Hadar aren't thieves after the bar fight in "Behind the Lines" was a little touching. You could say it's posturing, but to me it came across as genuinely trying to defend the honor of their men.
* In ''Sacrifice Of Angels'', when [[TheCavalry the Klingons]] dive in out of the sun to assist a beleaguered Starfleet force against a large Dominion fleet, Worf hails the ''Defiant'' and [[BigDamnHeroes apologizes for being late]]. The camera cuts to Worf's LoveInterest, Jadzia Dax, on the ''Defiant's'' bridge with TearsOfJoy in her eyes.
* Dax meeting the Siskos in "Shadows and Symbols." Ezri is dealing with being an unprepared host for the symbiote and all the [[MindHive issues]] that go with the joining, Ben is trying to come to terms with Jadzia's death, his failure as the Emissary, and some EldritchAbomination-provided hallucinations. But at the end of the day, they're still Sisko and Dax, and just being together again clearly helps both of them cope.

* And while we're talking about Miles and Keiko, there's a sweet scene from the second season ep "Rivals", in which O'Brien is psyching himself up for a racquetball match against Dr Bashir, who had beaten him soundly earlier. Keiko stands beside him, assuming the attitude of a samurai's wife as her husband prepares for battle, while reminding him, "Remember, Miles. Win or lose, tonight we celebrate." Before he leaves, Keiko presents Miles with a Japanese silk scarf scented with her perfume. She wraps the scarf around his head, kisses him and says, "Kick his butt."
** Then there was when Keiko and Molly returned from a year-long botanical survey on Bajor. Miles, used to spending his time with Julian (to compensate for Keiko and Molly being absent) doing things such as re-enacting the Battle of Britain, finds the transition surprisingly difficult and even goes so far to try to teach Molly how to play darts - something he always did with Julian. As much as it pains him, he is determined to spend time with his family and be a good husband and father. Keiko, understanding his pain, concocts a little story about how depressed Julian has been lately and perhaps Miles should go spend time with him to "cheer him up"... and then concocts the very same story to Julian about Miles over the comm. As Miles himself states: he's a lucky man.
* At the end of "Prophet Motive", Quark says he was sad he couldn't profit somewhat from the Grand Nagus' charitable streak or the experience both had with the Prophets. Rom then reveals he embezzled funds from the Nagus' charity fund, leaving a tidy bit of money for Quark and himself. Imminently impressed, Quark says "Father would be proud" and they walk off together laughing. It's one of the few times Quark expresses genuine pride in his brother, and it's absolutely adorable.

She receives the hard-won card from his son and wraps him in a huge hug. Watch the scarf around his head, kisses him and says, "Kick his butt."
** Then there was when Keiko and Molly returned from a year-long botanical survey on Bajor. Miles, used to spending his time
ending with Julian (to compensate for Keiko Sisko's log and Molly being absent) doing things such as re-enacting the Battle of Britain, finds the transition surprisingly difficult and even goes so far to try to teach Molly how to play darts - something he always did with Julian. As much as it pains him, he is determined to spend time with his family and be a good husband and father. Keiko, understanding his pain, concocts a little story about how depressed Julian has been lately and perhaps Miles should go spend time with him to "cheer him up"... and then concocts the very same story to Julian about Miles over the comm. As Miles himself states: he's a lucky man.hug [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgldQAYEB3o here]].

* During "The Siege", while an extremist Bajoran military force is bearing down on Deep Space Nine, the Starfleet crew is trying to evacuate everyone as fast as they can, and his uncle Quark is gleefully plotting how best to screw the evacuees out of their money...Nog discovers that he and Jake are on different runabouts, going to different systems, and when Jake mourns having to lose his home again, along with his friend, Nog takes the time to unabashedly reassure Jake that [[IWillFindYou they will see each other again,]] because there's never been a greater friendship than theirs between Human and Ferengi. It's both heartwarming, and one of the first notes of foreshadowing that Nog is at his best when he's not trying to be a "proper" Ferengi.
