Added DiffLines:

* "Nor The Battle To The Strong." Most of the episode, really. Jake Sisko, stuck on Ajilon Prime with Dr. Bashir, gets a closer look into the horrors of war than he ever really wanted, and he finds himself surrounded by death and destruction, capped off by an embittered soldier who dies right in front of him. Long before the episode is over, you just wanna hug the poor kid.

** Or even before the ending, Marritza's heartbreaking confession when he can't maintain the masquerade[[labelnote:*]]He was pretending to be infamous Cardassian butcher Gul Darheel, intending to be caught and executed for Darheel's crimes to force Cardassia to face up to what it had done to Bajor[[/labelnote]] any longer. Even Kira begins to tear up.

-->'''Marritza:''' No, don't you see? I have to be punished! We all have to be punished! Major, you have to go out there and tell them I'm Gul Darheel! It's the only way!

* The episode "Whispers" ends with [[spoiler:A replicant of Miles O'Brien]] dying. It's bad enough for the viewer, who knows that the one who died [[spoiler:never knew they were a fake--they thought they were the ''real'' Miles O'Brien]]--but one wonders how the Starfleet officers felt after they listened to the log entries that person left on the runabout....

* ''Far Beyond the Stars''. He may or may not have just been a figment of Sisko's imagination, but still... Poor Benny...

Added DiffLines:

* The end of "The Sound Of Her Voice." The crew did all they could to save Captain Cusak, but were doomed from the start because of the timeshifted signals. Sisko laments that it isn't right for her to stay alone in this cave; she deserves to be with her friends.
** Also from the episode, O'Brien confessing that this war is hitting him harder than the Cardassian War he fought in before. He's having trouble connecting with people because any of them could be dead tomorrow. And you realize that this same thing is happening for thousands of people all over the Alpha Quadrant. How many people are out there, trying to cope with their fears without telling their friends or being analyzed by a counselor?

* "The Ship", courtesy of Muñiz. Bad enough that he dies, but instead of an InstantDeathBullet followed by HesDeadJim, like with any other RedShirt, he [[CruelAndUnusualDeath slowly bleeds out]] from his phaser wound.

-->'''Marritza:''' What are you doing?
-->'''Kira:''' ...I'm letting you go.
-->'''Marritza:''' ...Security! Security, get in here!
-->'''Kira:''' ''[Kira steps into Marritza's cell]'' You didn't commit those crimes, and you couldn't stop them. You were only one man.
-->'''Marritza:''' No, don't you see? I have to be punished! We all have to be punished! Major, you have to go out there and tell them I'm Gul Darheel! It's the only way!
-->'''Kira:''' Why are you doing this?!
-->'''Marritza:''' For Cardassia! The only way Cardassia will survive is if it stands before Bajor and admits the truth! My trial will force Cardassia to acknowledge its guilt, and we're guilty, all of us! My death is necessary.
-->'''Kira:''' What you're asking for is another murder. Enough good people have already died. I won't help kill another one.
