* The episode "Extreme Measures", where Bashir and O'Brien enter the brain of a dying Sloan to retrieve the cure for the disease Section 31 created to kill Odo. While in there, they see Sloan have an imaginary goodbye to his family, saying he regrets that his life of secrecy in the name of preserving the Federation kept him from being closer to them. Even worse, because Sloan is actively trying to distract Bashier and O'Brien from finding the cure, we don't know if this is real regret on his part or another ruse. Either way, the implications are depressing.

** [[spoiler:When Ziyal is shot by Damar, a devastated Dukat refuses Damar's urging to flee and cradles his daughter in his arms, telling her he forgives her and wailing in grief and agony as she dies.]]

* 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?

*** How about the fact that this is the event that causes Rom to break the mold and sets him on that path? Nog's decision to join Starfleet changed both their lives, and the entirety of Ferengi society.

*** Not to mention a few scenes later. Martok is recounting what he said to Worf and realizes that the revenge he has waited ''decades'' for against Kor has done nothing but make him feel ashamed of himself for doing it.

* "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.

* 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....
