* 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.
* The ending of "Prophet Motive" has a sweet moment when Rom reveals he skimmed off the top of Zek's charitable foundation, making back the money Quark lost during the course of the episode.
-->'''Quark (stunned):''' [[RefugeInAudacity You embezzled money from the Nagus??]]
-->'''Rom (shrugging):''' ...Surpriiise!
-->'''Quark (smiling):''' [[SoProudOfYou Father would be proud!]]

Added DiffLines:

* In "Crosfire," Odo, upset over losing out on romance to Kira and Worf capturing a would-be assassin, comes to his quarters and smashes the place up. Quark comes to complain about the noise but is struck by how defeated Odo looks. Quark tells Odo he's losing money in a "manhunt pool" he runs because of this attitude and that the pool is a sign of how much the station's inhabitants respect and admire Odo. Quark tells Odo has to either tell Kira how he feels or forget her and move on.
-->'''Quark''': Well, I've said my piece. Sorry to come down hard but I'm looking out for my business.
-->'''Odo''': Funny...For a minute there, I thought you were talking to me as a friend.
-->'''Quark''':...Nah.
** At the episode's end, Quark tells Odo he's moved by the discovery Odo is having the floor of his quarters sound-proofed. Odo scoffs and claims he's just having the floor reinforced, the sound-proofing is a coincidence and Quark pretends to accept it but clearly, they both know it's a cover.

-->'''Kira''': I love him, Garak - did you really think I wouldn't notice?

* The moment in "The Way of the Warrior" where Worf and O'Brien reminisce about the events surrounding "The Best of Both Worlds". It becomes a TearJerker when they start eulogizing the ''Enterprise-D'' because, in a meta sense, they are also eulogizing [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration the Next Generation]].

* 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.
-->'''Picard:''' This is your favourite transporter room, isn't it?
-->'''O'Brien:''' Number three, yes sir.
-->'''Picard:''' You know, yesterday I called down here and I asked for you without thinking . . . it won't be quite the same.

** 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 ''this'' close 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.

* At the end of the Season 7 episode "Take Me Out To The Holosuite", Sisko's [[StrawVulcan Vulcan]] [[TheRival Rival]] tries to rub in just how badly [=DS9=] [[CurbStompBattle lost]] at baseball, even if they did manage to score a run. Sisko takes it in stride, enjoying the camaraderie and remembering how much he loved the game, then Sisko's team stand up for him, getting under the Vulcan's skin so bad it leaves him at a loss for words, showing how great the TrueCompanions and FireForgedFriends tropes are.

** This gets a CallBack in another heartwarming moment. Odo marries Lwaxana in a later episode (granted, it's just to allow Lwaxana to keep a child she's carrying, but still, that he's willing to go so far to help her is heartwarming in and of itself). At one point he has to convince the father of the child of his love for her, and when hollow platitudes aren't enough, he opens himself up in a way he rarely does:
-->'''Odo:''' Before I met her, my world was... a much smaller place. I kept to myself, I didn't need anyone else, and I took pride in that. The truth is, I was ashamed of what I was, afraid that if people saw how truly different I was, they would recoil from me. Lwaxana saw how different I was... and she didn't recoil. She wanted to see more. For the first time in my life, someone wanted me as I was. And that changed me forever. The day I met her is the day I stopped being alone. And I want her to be part of my life from this day on.



*** 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 Ferrengi 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, Ferrengi.

* 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 that two hearts together.

Added DiffLines:

** 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".

* The way that Kira smiles when she sees Odo practicing his umpire skills for the upcoming Niners versus Logicians baseball game. It's a little moment, but it's one of those really sweet moments of their relationship, that Odo taking this so seriously makes her smile [[WhenSheSmiles like that.]]
