While it starts with a misstep, it manages to regain its momentum
18 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When this episode began, I was worried. After all, Dr. Bashir was about to go back into the holosuite for another one of his James Bond- like adventures....and I HATED this an other holo-bound episodes. Fortunately, this foray is interrupted with the arrival of Dr. Zimmerman (Robert Picardo). Zimmerman is working on creating an emergency holographic doctor (something you'll see the same actor portray throughout "Star Trek: Voyager") and he plans on modeling it after Dr. Bashir. While this should be an honor, Bashir is oddly unmotivated. What gives? What secret does the good Doctor hide?

Despite the initial misstep, this is a pretty decent episode. Also, it's nice to see some continuity as Bashir's secret is alluded to several more times throughout the series.
