When I first took command of this post, all I wanted was to be somewhere else...anywhere but here. But now, five years later, this has become my home, and you have become my family. And leaving this station - leaving you - is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. But this war isn't over yet...I want you to know that while we were keeping the Dominion occupied, a Starfleet-Klingon task force crossed the border into Cardassia and destroyed the Dominion shipyards on Taurus III. Your sacrifices...our sacrifices...made that victory possible. But no victory can make this moment any easier for me...and I promise, I will not rest until I stand with you again...here...in this place where I belong.
Frosty the Snowman
Had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye, saying "Don't you cry!
I'll be back again someday!"

I might leave for a while, it might put your heart to the test,
But I will always come back to happiness.
