Sloan: We're on the same team. We believe in the same principles that every other Federation citizen holds dear.
Doctor Bashir: And yet you violate those principles as a matter of course.
Sloan: In order to protect them.
Doctor Bashir: Well, I'm sorry, but the ends don't always justify the means.
Sloan: Really? - How many lives do you suppose you've saved in your medical career?
Doctor Bashir: What has that got to do with anything?

Is the doctor a traitor?
18 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just as the doctor is preparing to go to a medical conference the senior staff are all called to ops and told that one of them is suspected of leaking information to the Dominion; until the culprit is found they are all to be confined to their quarters… and the doctor isn't going to his conference. When Sloan, director of internal affairs interviews him the questions seem fairly innocuous but when Chief O'Brien contacts him it becomes clear that Sloan is very interested in the doctor; could it be that he is suspected? After a second interview he is accused of treason and the way he is treated shows some people in the Federation don't believe that a person is innocent until proved guilty. Briefly it even looked as though he may have been guilty when he appears to be beamed off the station by the Dominion only to be recaptured by the Defiant. Something isn't quite right though and he soon realises he is in fact in the holosuite and Sloan has been testing him the whole time.

This was a good episode that introduces Sloan and the sinister Section Thirty One. Early on I was unsure what they really wanted with the doctor or why they were acting in a way one wouldn't normally expect from the usually overly perfect Federation. William Sadler puts in a good performance as the sinister Sloan and regular cast member Alexander Siddig was great as Dr. Bashir.
