I love this show so much. I love Steven, and Greg, and all the others, and especially Garnet (GARNET IS THE BEEEEST).
I love everything.
And the thing is that I can't blame anyone for their actions. I can't blame Yedrin for wanting to make what he felt were better decisions than Jadzia, or for wanting to ensure the continued existence of the colony. Nor can I fault Future Odo for wanting to save Kira's life the way he was unable to do before. I can't blame Sisko and O'Brien for wanting to go home, or O'Brien for being the last hold out because Jake is pretty much grown, but Miles' daughter is still young and his son an infant, and he would be missing their entire lives. Not to mention, he's still madly in love with Keiko and can't imagine any circumstances where he would give up on her.
I can't blame any of the residents of the colony if they felt resentment toward any of the crew who wanted to go home instead of be thrown 200 years into the past.
I wouldn't have blamed anyone who still felt that way when the Defiant took off, on either side.
I don't blame Kira for being angry with Future Odo.
It's not an easy problem with villains and a good guy and black and white morality. There is no "right choice" here, really, because staying has its consequences just as serious as the consequences of leaving.
But all those children who now never existed.
WE ARE THE CRYSTAL GEMS.
WE'LL ALWAYS SAVE THE DAY.
AND IF YOU THINK WE CAN'T WE'LL ALWAYS FIND A WAY.
