Storyline

Jake's traveling with Doctor Bashir, to write a report about his activities. It's different from what he expected though, all Julian talks about is prion replications, amino acid re-sequencing and quantum dynamics. Jake would rather write a report about the doctor battling Cartalian fever, for example and thinks that readers would relate to that more. Jake's wish for more action may come true when a distress call is sent in from the Ajilon Prime colony. They are under attack by the Klingons. They urgently need medical supplies and a doctor in a hospital near the front line. Bashir doesn't want to take Sisko's son with him, but Jake is able to convince him otherwise. Jake is delighted, but is the young reporter really prepared for the horror that is war? Meanwhile captain Sisko hears the Farragut will pick the two up the next day, but gets more anxious as time progresses. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Jake Sisko: I keep turning it over in my head. The shelling. Losing sight of Bashir. Running. And I keep trying to make sense of it all - to justify what I did. But when it comes down to it there's only one explanation: I'm a coward!

The arrogance of youth.
23 July 2017 | by ArnoudMeulendijksSee all my reviews

The arrogance of youth. Many a young person thinks they know it all and can do it all, but crumble under pressure. That is what this story is about. A good subject for a Star Trek story, that gets further elaborated in 'The Siege of AR-558' and 'It's only a Paper Moon' with Nog being the main character.
