Deep Space Nine #8: It’s about courage, faith, and heart.












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 Torros 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.

That may be the most important thing to understand about humans.
It is the unknown that defines our existence. We are constantly searching,
not just for answers to our questions, but for new questions. We are explorers.
We explore our lives day by day, and we explore the galaxy trying to
expand the boundaries of our knowledge. And that is why I am here:
not to conquer you with weapons or ideas, but to coexist and learn.
