Is the doctor a traitor?

10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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.

A return to form...

8/10

The previous three episodes in a row for "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" were pretty bad. So, it's nice to see that here with "Inquisition" that the show is back on track.

The show begins with Dr. Bashir getting ready to leave the station to go to some medical conference. However, just as he's about to leave a team of Federation investigators arrive. They think that there's a traitor on board and everyone is confined to quarters until their investigation is complete. What follows is a super- paranoid episode--one that reveals for the first time that there might be a shadow organization within the Federation like the Obsidian Order within the Cardassians.

I like paranoid episodes and so I have a natural affinity for shows like this one. I also appreciate it when the shows reveal a less than warm and fuzzy presence within the Federation--mostly because for so long the Trek universe had been a bit too nice. These folks ain't nice--and it's a nice way to see the show returning to form. Well worth seeing.
