Still the Best Space Dad

When I came across this article by Nitesh Srivastava on, I was about to post a longer piece about what Benjamin Sisko… but then I realized I already did that for Father’s Day last year.

Arguably a good Father’s Day watch

Srivastava is focusing on how Sisko is, perhaps, the most relatable of the Starfleet captains, because, although Sisko shares incredible heroism with his peers, he does things we recognize we might do.

Also, I’m pretty sure I could not beat the Borg Collective, even if I just had coffee from a nebula.

Anyway, Sisko is a great character to revisit on Father’s Day (the obvious episode being “The Visitor” or “Explorers” if you want fewer tears)… and also not bad for Juneteenth.
