Trivia

The phrase "Inter arma enim silent leges" is Latin for "For among [times of] arms, the laws fall mute," although it is more popularly rendered as "In times of war, the law falls silent" (Just as Dr. Bashir explained it to Admiral Ross). This maxim was first written by Cicero in his published oration Pro Milone, although Cicero's actual wording was "Silent enim leges inter arma." At the time when Cicero used this phrase, mob violence was common. Armed gangs led by thuggish partisan leaders controlled the streets of Rome. Such leaders were nevertheless elected to high offices.

Who can you trust?
19 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Doctor Bashir is invited to a medical conference on Romulus he thinks he will just be giving a few talks on medical matters, however shortly before he sets off he is woken by Sloan, an agent of the shadowy Section 31 intelligence agency who wants Julian to gather information on a senior Romulan who may have an illness Section 31 can exploit.

The doctor initially refuses but is persuaded to play along with Sloan in order to expose Section 31's activities. When he is at the conference he is surprised to see Sloan is there to. When it becomes clear that Sloan is plotting to assassinate the head of Romulan intelligence Julian is forced to turn to the one person he can trust; a Romulan senator.

This episode was exciting despite having little action, the convoluted machinations of Sloan meant the viewer is constantly kept wondering what his real motives and intentions are and we don't learn what they are till the end. As usual Alexander Siddig does well as Dr. Bashir, it was nice to see him as the main character in an episode.
