Storyline

A Bajoran transport with Vedek Bareil and Kai Winn aboard has an accident. When they arrive on the station, Bareil is critically injured. While Bashir tries do everything he can to save him, Kai Winn tells Sisko she and Bareil are involved in advanced peace talks with the Cardassians. The Cardassians are willing to pay reparations and even might be issuing a formal apology. Winn stresses the negotiations would have never come this far if it wasn't for Bareil and that she would be unable to complete them without Bareil being there. Meanwhile Jake tries to cancel a game of dom-jot with Nog to go out with a girl, Leanne. Nog thinks Jake also arranged a girl for him and Jake agrees to make it a double date. But things don't go as Jake has planned. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

[last lines]
Major Kira: [to an unconscious Bareil] I'll... I'll never forget... the first time I saw you, the day you came to the station. You had... such a... serenity about you. I thought you had all the answers. It really got on my nerves for a while. Then I got to know you, and I... realized you were just as confused as the rest of us. You just accepted your confusion, better than anyone I've ever known. That's when I realized I loved you.

A dilemma for the doctor
22 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When a shuttle arrives from Bajor after having a radiation leak Vedek Bareil is taken to the infirmary with injuries so serious that he is soon pronounced dead. As Dr Bashir is watching a monitor he notices there is still some neural activity and after some radical procedures he manages to revive him although he is still far from well and if he is to be able to assist in important treaty discussions between Bajor and Cardassia he will need a treatment which could cause him to relapse after a few days. Bashir counsels against it but he insists after Kai Winn says how much she needs his help. In a secondary story Jake and Nog have a falling out after a double date goes horribly wrong due to Nog's beliefs about how woman should be treated being different to the others.

This was an interesting episode in which Alexander Siddig did a good job as Dr Bashir who must provide treatments even though he advises against it. Nana Visitor also put in a good performance as Major Kira who must deal with what is happening to the man she loves.
