Storyline

Sisko, O'Brien, Dax, Worf and Kira are coming back from a tiresome conference. Suddenly there's a power surge in the warp core of the runabout. The ship's been sabotaged and it explodes. Eddington is only barely able to beam them off, but the shock wave damages the transporters. Their patterns are still in the system though and by deleting station's memory Eddington is able to store them. Meanwhile doctor Bashir plays secret agent Bashir, Julian Bashir in a holosuite. He is surprised by the arrival of Garak and finally allows him to join. Then suddenly KGB agent Anastasia Komananov looks like Kira. While Bashir thinks it is another uninvited guest, the truth soon becomes clear. The five crew members have become an integral part of the holo adventure. With the safeties off Bashir has to do his utter best to keep everyone alive, while Eddington and Rom try to solve the problem. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Trivia

Series semi-regular Garak, a tailor who used to be a secret agent, resembles the spy protagonists of John le Carré novels (George Smiley, Alec Leamas, etc.), some of which moonlight as tailors. These bleakly serious spy stories are often held up as the literary antithesis of Ian Fleming's glamorous, over-the-top world of James Bond. In this episode, several discussions between Bashir (playing the role of Bond) and Garak, regarding the popular image of a secret agent versus the reality, are reminiscent of literary theses written about Fleming versus Le Carré.

Funny AND stupid!
28 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with Dr. Bashir in the holosuite--playing a James Bond-like character. However, his fun is interrupted by Garak--who was apparently jealous of Bashir's many lady friends...and adventures. So, they stay and enjoy the program together. However, at the same time, there is a transporter malfunction and five crew members are somehow sent into the memory of the holosuite and they begin appearing in Bashir's little fantasy. There is a problem, though, as he cannot close the program or perhaps the crew members will be forever lost. So, he's forced to play out the program and avoid letting any of these five die.

"Our Man Bashir" is both funny (like watching him in an Austin Powers movie. But, on the other hand, it's very embarrassing and stupid because it's like watching Dr. Bashir in an Austin Powers movie--especially with the names of the female characters!! Like so many of the holo episodes, this one is one you'll probably love or hate. It does nothing to advance the show and seems like fluffy filler.
