Why did they do a sequel to "Statistical Probabilities" in the first place?!
27 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

One of the poorer episodes of season 6 of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" was "Statistical Probabilities"--a show featuring a group of genetically modified folks who were misfits and were forced to live in an institution because of their mental problems. Dr. Bashir became friends with these folk and the episode had MANY embarrassing moments because it was so poorly written. So imagine my surprise that they would do a follow-up--a follow-up that I assume many folks would NOT have looked forward to seeing.

In this new episode, Dr. Bashir is surprised when his misfit friends show up on the base unexpectedly and in Starfleet uniforms. No, they are NOT members of the fleet--they are just once again social misfits who think this is cute. It isn't. Anyway, once they're on the base, somehow Bashir gets the idea to do some medical procedure to Sarina to try to bring her out of her mute and somewhat catatonic state. It is a success and almost instantly Bashir is smitten by her and is making plans for their lives together.

This episode is embarrassing--as are most of Bashir's attempts to court women. The problems are that he has no real ability to engage in a normal manner with women--almost as if he has Asperger's Syndrome. He also has ZERO sense of ethics, as no responsible doctor would almost instantly begin hitting on their patient! Sarina's reaction to the ultra-creepy Doctor isn't at all surprising. And, it makes for a rather uncomfortable episode overall.
