Storyline

Quark introduces Altovar, a Lethean to Dr. Bashir. He wants to buy biomimetic gel - a restricted substance, Bashir rebuffs the request. Soon, he finds the Lethean breaking in to the infirmary. Altovar attacks Bashir with a telepathic weapon and the doctor passes out. When he awakes, the lights are malfunctioning. No one answers their communicator, and the entire station seems to be deserted and in a state of disarray. Julian caches a glimpse of himself, notices he has gray hair, and seems to be rapidly aging. The sound of whispers and loud noises coming from the bar. sends Julian towards the bar, where he finds Quark, afraid and trying to hide. Quark mentions someone is going to kill them all, then runs for his life. The questions are: who is going to kill them, why is Dr. Bashir appear to be aging rapidly, and why are the few people on DS9 acting so abnormally? Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Doctor Bashir: So I've noticed.
Garak: I guess you had reason to feel worried about turning thirty after all. Either that, or your job is even more stressful than I thought.

Bashir in Wonderland
16 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

We have two consecutive episodes based on some pretty contrived events. We have O'Brien getting unstuck in time and Bashir, seeing things while in a coma (and aging rapidly as well). If you set things in a dream and you know it's a dream, then reality is sold out. It also creates a plot where the usual suspects start to act in completely aberrant ways. I have no idea how it ended because it really made no sense most of the way.
