Kind of enjoyable, kind of creepy.
23 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While I did enjoy this episode, it also introduced a character that had no business being on "Star Trek: Deep Space 9", Vic Fontaine (James Darren). Having in this episode only might have been okay, but he would make 8 appearances on the show--8 very contrived appearances.

When the show begins, Dr. Bashir is showing off his new boy friend, Vic Fontaine, to all his friends. It seems that Bashir adores this new holographic character and wants everyone to see this all-knowing and really clever Las Vegas lounge singer circa 1960.

Following this trip to the holosuite, Odo finds he's fascinated by Vic. After all, Vic seems to really know about women and relationships and Odo thinks MAYBE Vic can help him with Major Kira. What follows is much like Vic taking Odo to school--teaching him to have fun, be more assertive and take the initiative. However, to really get Odo moving, Vic decides to trick him and the Major-- something VERY odd for a holo character. What's even odder is that Vic even contacts the two when they aren't in the holosuite! Huh?

This episode is kind of fun, though it's also a bit creepy (Vic is a bit invasive and tricky) and it means MORE Vic episodes. I never liked the overuse of the holosuites in the show--and here they really let them run amok.

By the way, two reasons to see this show are for Nana Visitor singing "Fever" (she was HOT and what a voice!) as well as the 'big kiss'-- it's a doozy.
