Quotes

Elim Garak: [Rolling his eyes] The eternal optimist!
Dr. Julian Bashir: Guilty as charged.
Elim Garak: How sad. I must tell you, I'm disappointed at hearing you mouth the usual platitudes of peace and friendship regarding an implacable foe like the Romulans. But, I live in hope that one day, you'll come to see this universe for what it truly is, rather than what you'd wish it to be.
Dr. Julian Bashir: Then I shall endeavor to become more cynical with each passing day. Look gift horses squarely in the mouth, and find clouds in every silver lining.
Elim Garak: [Smiling] ...

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.
